Fasting

Fasting

When we were in dire need at sea, we learned how little a person needs, not how much.  – The Fab Four

A long time ago we decided to fast after Easter. We are in the preparation stage now eating only fruit and vegetable soup, at the weekend we will start. Today we went to Holt to buy organic teas and Bullrich’s Salt for regulating our alkaline PH. But, oh dear, they didn’t know that salt, although, they told us, that many customers from the continent who wanted to fast were asking for it. So we bought organic cider vinegar with the mother instead.

Vor langer Zeit beschlossen wir nach Ostern zu fasten. Am Wochenende fangen wir damit an. Jetzt sind wir in der Vorbereitung. Heute fuhren wir nach Holt und wollten im Holistic Whole Food Store organischen Tee, Bullrichs Salz und mehr kaufen. Aber oh weh, man kannte das Salz nicht, obwohl jeder, der vom Kontinent kommt und fasten will, bereits danach fragte. Also haben wir organischen Apfel Cider Essig mit Muttersatz gekauft.

Have you ever fasted?
We did it several times but the last time is quite a while ago. Master has no problems with not eating and not drinking alcohol but not to smoke is quite a challenge for him. Dina will have a tough time not drinking coffee and Siri 🙂 and 🙂 Selma will struggle not to use their fairy-phones because we decided to stay away from digital media as well. Nevertheless, we enjoy not having to cook or go shopping as we’re cleansing our bodies. 

Habt ihr schon einmal gefastet?
Wir haben das schon öfter gemacht, dennoch liegt das letzte Mal einige Zeit zurück. Masterchen hat wenig Probleme damit, nichts zu essen und keinen Akohol zu trinken, aber nicht zu rauchen ist eine schwierigere Übung für ihn. Dina kämpft wahrscheinlich mit den Kaffeeentzug und Siri 🙂 und 🙂 Selma finden es ja soooo schwierig, nicht ihre Feenphones zu benutzen, da wir auch Abstinenz von digitaler Kommunikation beschlossen. Aber wir alle vier freuen uns darauf, gaaanz viel Zeit zu haben, nicht einkaufen und nicht kochen zu müssen, während wir den Körper reinigen.

Siri 🙂 thinks she can conjure much better when she is fasting. Oh dear, what do we have to expect? For Dina and the Master, it’s an exercise to strengthen their wills – as if they needed it. Hopefully, they will not become unbearable. Anyway, it’s an adventure. Siri 🙂 and 🙂 Selma already threatened to move into the sauna in the garden if there are too much ‘bad vibes’. When Master quoted Martin Heidegger “Waiver doesn’t take, waiver gives.” Siri 🙂 and 🙂 Selma were already packing their sleeping bags for fleeing to the sauna. The wise Dina had to step in. She explained that fasting makes you younger. Does that mean that the Fab Four will become even more childlike? At the end of their discussion, Selma 🙂 told us that fasting drives off evil spirits. Does she mean confused thinking and believing fake news?

Siri 🙂 meinte neulich, dass sie viel besser zaubern kann, wenn sie fastet. Das sind wir echt gespannt. Für Dina und Masterchen ist es eine Übung, ihren Willen zu stärken – als ob die das noch brauchen. Hoffentlich wird’s nicht unerträglich. Auf jeden Fall ist’s ein Abenteuer für uns. Mal sehen, ob wir zu Beginn unausstehlich werden. Siri 🙂 und 🙂 Selma drohten schon an, dass sie in dem Fall in unsere Sauna im Garten ziehen würden. Als noch Masterchen Heidegger zititierte “Verzicht nimmt nicht. Verzicht gibt.” hätten sie schon fast ihre Schlafsäcke gepackt und wären in der Sauna verschwunden. Da musste die weise Dina einschreitend erklären, dass Fasten die Neubildung jugendlicher Zellen anregt. So werden wohl die Fab Four demnächst völlig kindlich werden. Seid gespannt. Selma 🙂 meinte noch, Fasten vertreibe böse Geister, sie meint wohl verwirrte Gedanken oder den naiven Glauben von Fake News.

Lots of love

Despite fasting we have our blog upgraded because we run out of space – we don’t fast there! It’s now WWW.FABFOURBLOG.COM instead of TOFFEEFEE – as we don’t like Toffee anymore 😉 But you can still reach us via our old address and for our dear followers nothing changes.
Trotz allen Fastens haben wir wegen Bildplatzmangels – ja, da fasten wir nicht! – unseren Blog upgegraded. Er heißt nun WWW.FABFOURBLOG.COM und nicht mehr TOFFEEFEE, da es nun keine Toffees mehr gibt 😉 Aber über unsere alte Adresse kommt ihr immer noch zu uns und für unsere lieben Abonneten ändert sich nichts.

  1. Fab Four of Cley,
    I used to fast during lent, but being as I haven’t done that in so long, I should start an after-Easter fast myself. It does a bod good! How long do you suppose it should last? I’ll be shopping tomorrow, so I’ll be making a list to keep me stocked. (I could stand to be a bit younger!!). 🙂
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend – and stay as young and light-hearted as you wish!!

    • Dear GP Cox,
      we are on the third day of preparation. In the ‘pre-fast’ time we drink a lot of organic juices, we eat Finnish crispbread (because we like it) with cottage cheese, in the evening a vegetable soup and in between fruit. Our real fast starts tomorrow. We do it for 6 days. We will thrice a day have a little piece of crispbread without cheese and eating it very, very slowly, we’ll drink 3 ltr. of water per day and will not use either our computer nor our phones. After those 6 days, we’ll start with crisp bread and cheese and a vegetable soup again. After 3 more days we’ll go back to normal.
      Thank you very much for your kind wishes.
      We wish you a happy weekend and getting as young as you wish. And if you start an after-Easter fast we wish you happy fasting

  3. I confess that I have never fasted. I have never been religious, so didn’t have that reason. But to fast for your health is a good plan, especially if if means KB not smoking. 🙂 Lovely wave photos to accompany this post. They made me feel as if I was in the sea!

    • Dear Pete,
      you made me think about why I fast again: You wouldn’t believe it but I want to tell my body that I am the ruler. I think it has to do with power and I don’t want to be ruled by food. I have a friend in Germany he is hooked on food – but without being big. I like him but his dependency on food makes me feel sick, I can’t see him eating. But, in a way, I am the other way round. When I was working I quite often forgot to eat for two or three days. Therefore fasting is not such a challenge for me.
      Yes, I think I do it to prove (for myself) that I can rule my body and mind.
      With lots of love from the sunny sea

  4. Surely I fasted. About 8 years back friends of mine decided to try it and I was part of the group.
    I lost 10 kilos in 10 days.
    It was a good experience, without any difficulties, but I gained those lost kilos back very soon.
    Nowadays I count more on walking and eating properly – in the long run this should help.
    Cleaning the body?! I don’t know if this is really necessary. I also didn’t experience spiritual enlightenment in those 10 days. So it was only the weight loss.

    BTW: Nice photos AGAIN!

      We don’t fast for losing weight, actually, we are slightly underweight. We do it for proving it to ourselves that we are able to do it. We sometimes do those exercises for training our willpower. It’s fun. And as we are not food lovers it’s not such a hard exercise for us.

  5. Ich habe schon oft gefastet, auch in diesem Jahr – vor Ostern – allerdings nicht ganz radikal, ich aß am Abend eine Gemüsesuppe und am Morgen zwei Scheiben Reiswaffeln und trotzdem war es sehr wohltuend! Ich kann gut mit Masterchen mitfühlen, bei mir sind die Zigaretten auch immer eine Hürde, den Kaffee schleiche ich schon vorher aus, dann ist es nicht so heftig, wenn ich auf Null gehe. Alkohol bereitet mit Nullprobleme, aber ich trinke ihn ja auch nicht regelmäßig!
    Viel Freude und Klarheit wünsche ich euch Vieren, die Klarheit stellt sich ja dann ab vierten Tag ein und darauf habe ich mich immer besonders gefreut. Ihr könnt übrigens auch mit Flohsamen abführen, dann aber auch richtig viiiel trinken, aber das macht man ja während dieser Zeit sowieso.

      wir fasten auch nicht radikal. Nachdem wir deinen Kommentar lasen, überlegen wir, ob wir eine basische Suppe abends beibehalten. Wir aßen die schon in der Vorbereitungsphase.
      Bei Flohsamen müssen wir mal schauen, ob es den hier gibt.

  6. Have I fasted? No! Not once throughout my life, and believe mit or not: I’m still alive and kicking!
    However, there has been days in my life where I’ve eaten nothing at all, ( but a beer) 🙂
    but has been solely because I just wasn’t hungry! Or if I was way out in the wilderness with no food, no matches, no berries – just nothing edible!
    But there’s always something if one really must!

    • On our Arctic expeditions, we were sometimes in situations not having food for two or three days or when our Master was writing he forgot to eat for more than a day. But we wouldn’t call this fasting. As we wrote before fasting has to do with training your willpower. It has to be voluntary – that’s the whole point of it.

  8. Are the photo’s a representation of all your stomachs together during your fasting. The body does tend to exhale such toxicity during the fasting and we can become a little wild. But the end product is so much better with much calmer sea’s, then you can move back in to share the clearer waters 😀 ❤

  10. This looks fabulous, Dina! I like your thought-provoking quote at the beginning.
    I have fasted a few times in my life. And at the beginning, I always put down on paper my thoughts about why I’m doing it: What do I want to accomplish by fasting? My number one reason was always for health. It’s good to have plenty of time to contemplate and experience the changes. I think I will fasten again soon now. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration, best of luck to you all four dear friends.

  11. Wonderful images.. So beautiful in B & W.

    I can fast a little, but like my food too much to do it for any length of time. Since I am currently on a dairy/grain/gluten/sugar/potato/almond/seed free diet, I supposes I have pretty strong will-power when it comes to the crunch. I rarely drink as it doesn’t agree with my heart and blood pressure medication so I suppose I could be a teetotaller if I needed to. Being pre-diabetic (inherited from my Father’s side), it probably would be unwise to fast properly.

  12. When I look at the rushing waters of Dina’s amazing photos, I see cleansing in action. How fitting for your post on fasting! I am sure fasting is good for you and indeed it reminds you how little one needs to live. As for me, my wife and my family are worried that I will be in trouble if I don’t eat. Two months after radiation treatment, during which I had lost a considerable amount of weight, I have not gained a single pound. The benefits of fasting are for those who overindulge in eating in an affluent society. You are doing well in cutting out smoking during your fast, Klausbernd. Warm greetings and best wishes to the Fab Four from Canada!

      es ist eigentlich witzig, wir sind alle dünn. Ja, wir sind sogar so dünn, dass Klausbernd eine extra Untersuchung und ein Attest benötigte, um bei seiner letzten Arktis-Expedition angenommen zu werden. Sein Body Mass Index war zu niedrig. Wir fasten, um uns zu zeigen, dass wir es können, um unseren Geist zu klären und um ganz im Sinne Gurdjieffs Verhaltensweisen zu brechen. Aber in deinem Fall würden wir auch vom Fasten abraten. Es gibt ja viele andere Übungen, um seinen Geist zu klären und Verhaltensweise zu brechen und seinen Willen zu trainieren.

  15. My feelings about food approach religious exaltation, but I have participated in fasts, usually for fund-raisers, and usually walk as much as possible, so that I can enjoy some clear-headed thinking, and avoid dwelling on visions of cheeseburgers.
    (I hadn’t heard of Bullrich salt, but looked it up – it appears to be used to make your own mineral water?) The Pennsylvania Germans have all sorts of cider- and cider vinegar-based drinks and spring tonics, in lieu of salts and mineral water, usually with ginger, horehound, molasses, etc. and actually tasting pretty nice.
    And I love your photos – – the second one with frozen wave crests reminds me of all those Greek and Roman mosaics, showing Poseidon, Apollo, Eros, assorted poets & nymphs, etc. riding dolphins, with the froth on the waves as the horsehair crests on the helmets.

    Very best of luck driving off the evil sprites/spirits/fake news, your posts are always welcome news, RPT.

      this Bullrich’s Salt adjusts the alkaloid-acid-level in your body. At least that’s why it’s taken in Germany and Scandinavia.

      it’s maybe a paradox, we are not too big, actually rather thin, just a little bit underweight. We fast for reasons you mention and for breaking patterns and training our willpower. But we agree it’s an important point to become aware that we all tend to consume too much. Less is better in many respects.
      We’ll fast for 6 days and if we like we’ll go on for 3 more days but not a minute more.

  22. I wish you luck with your fasting. I used to do this when I was younger in order to stay slim. It was fairly easy because the result was worth it. Nowadays and at my advanced age, I would think it foolish to deny myself the things I love for no good reason. I eat healthily throughout the year but even if I didn’t I wouldn’t fast because I don’t believe in self-denial. But you obviously feel it will have benefits for you, so my best wishes for the next few weeks.

    Beim Fasten erlebt man die dollsten Dinger…ich finde es erstaunlich, welch klare Gedanken plötzlich erscheinen….
    Zu eurem Blogbeitrag fällt mir ein: Fasten your seatbelts, high waves will come…
    Und das nach einer Cabanossi, einer Scheibe Brot und einem Glas Rotwein aus Chile…
    Das Salz hätte ich, soll ich es euch schicken?
    Hätte noch drei Tage Zeit mich zu reinigen, gute Idee!!!
    Basensuppe und frische Säfte und man lebt “gesünder” als mit der normalen Kost…
    Der Morgenkaffe macht Probleme, 2 Tage Kopfweh aber dann, ahhhhhh…….
    Have fun with fasten, Siri und Selma, please stay relaxed and watch the Show

      ja, wir passen schon auf die beiden auf. Bis jetzt sind sie noch nicht grumpelig. Wir glauben, wir müssen eher darauf achten, dass sie es nicht übertreiben. Besonders unser liebes Masterchen hat so einen Hang zu Asketischen. Tja, das wäre der nächste Schritt, bei ihm dieses Verhalten zu mildern.

    • Hi, lebe Pia,
      naja, der zweite Tag ohne Rauchen ist eigentlich völlig ok – wenn ich keine Zigaretten sehe oder gar noch einen in meiner Umgebung rauchen. Aber mit diesem Kaugummi wird’s schon klappen, da bin ich mir sicher. Naja, ich rauchte nur max 6 Zigaretten pro Tag und manchmal vergaß ich es.
      Mal sehen, wie das so weiter geht …

  24. We fast several times a year ( for religious reasons ). I’ve never had a problem with fasting, and it so makes you appreciate . . . food. Suggestion? Gradually cut down on coffee (caffeine) for several days before. Your images? Heroic!

      we don’t think that fasting is such a big challenge for us. For us food is not that important. We always fasted before to clear our minds, break patterns and get new ideas.

  25. Good luck to you all. I haven’t tried fasting, but we have decided to cut out meat from our diet this year (still eat fish and the occasional chicken) but mostly sticking to vegetarian meals. What I need to do is up the water intake as I definitely do not drink enough. Changing one’s habits is difficult and I wish you well. Dina may find she gets a lot of headaches cutting out the coffee. I did this once (went onto decaf for a year) and to begin with I had dreadful headaches.

    • Well, well, this is the last day we are allowed to use digital media. Actually we, Dina and the Master, don’t find this that hard, we sometimes don’t touch our notebooks for days and especially our dear Master looses his iPhone sometime for a week or longer. But with Siri 🙂 and 🙂 Selma it’s different. They really love their fairyPhones and using them constantly – what for? We have nor idea. So we all have our problems with this fasting. It’s an exercise to stand frustration, to overcome problems and to change patterns. And it’s done for one week only.

      thank you very much!
      In Europe, esp. Germany and Scandinavia, fasting for health reasons is quite normal. Fasting for loosing weight, hm … We never thought about this aspect. Actually, we don’t think that this works, but we are slightly underweight and food and drink is not so important for us. The people I know in Switzerland and Germany fast for breaking behaviour patterns and for training their willpower – like we do. And, VERY important, we don’t take it that seriously. It’s not an exercise in masochsm for us.
      But we wouldn’t mind getting all these products we need for fasting delivered to our house.

  27. I was so taken with your first words: “When we were in dire need at sea, we learned how little a person needs, not how much.” In a world obsessively dedicated to consumption and over-indulgence, fasting of any sort is salutary, not only for its own sake, but also because it can lead to broader, longer-term changes. I don’t fast, per se, since I’m involved in physical labor every day, and need the energy. But I have adjusted my schedule to allow for a full twelve hours every day between my evening meal and breakfast. It’s been a little surprising to me how much better I feel, and how much more energy I have — motivation enough to keep up the practice.

    • You are absolutely right, fasting is a kind of protest against greedyness and over-consumption and an exercise to live without these hang ups of our post-modern way of life. We don’t do much physical labour except a bit of gardening and so fasting is good for cleaning our minds as well.

      we hope to come out feeling cleaner and more powerfull. We have to counterballance loosing weight because we are slightly underweight and our problem is gaining weight after fasting. It may sound strange but we don’t know how to gain weight. After our last fastings it took us month before we had a weight we were happy with. But nevertheless we are pretty sure that fasting does us well, especialy concerning our spiritual feeling.

Anyway, hopefully we will see you soon, even younger and even wiser than before. I feel a visit to the coast is in order soon – too much time in front of a computer screen in a Norwich garret.

Nicht kochen zu müssen, ist für mich das Beste am Fasten 😀 Diese ewige Kocherei macht mich derzeit ganz wuschig und ich bin momentan auf Joghurt und Obst umgestiegen .Ich faste also vom kochen 😀 Viel Spaß und gutes Durchhalten wünsche ich euch! Not having to cook is the best part of fasting for me. This eternal cooking makes me currently very wuschig and I am currently switched on yogurt and fruit .
    So I’m fasting from the cooking 😀 Have fun and good persistence I wish you! ❤

  32. Etwas Schwieriges zu tun, um sich zu beweisen, dass man es aushält, halte ich für eine sehr gute Idee! Für mich persönlich ist Fasten nicht geeignet, weil mein Blutdruck sofort in den Keller fällt und ich dann ohnmächtig werde. Aus diesem Grund habe ich vor einigen Wochen entschieden zum Frühstück eine bodenständige Suppe mit Haferlocken, vielen Hülsenfrüchten, Gemüse und viel Hühnerboullion zu essen. Diese totale Umstellung fängt an mir wirklich gut zu tun. Ich hoffe, dass es euch auch gut geht und ich möchte mich herzlich bedanken für diesen sinnvollen Post und natürlich für Dina’s bewegendes Bild. Cari saluti Martina

  35. Fasting is something I’ve admired. In the past I used to fast for 3 days after long travel, but it was not a true fast: coffee and juices during the day were OK 🙂 No way could I go without coffee, so I feel for Dina 🙂 The opening quote is quite good: “When we were in dire need at sea, we learned how little a person needs, not how much.” Much truth to this. It is good to think about this, especially in a world where abundance is the norm for many in the West. I’ve often heard how fasting is good for the body & mind, and hope it is refreshing for you all. Take care, and enjoy the weekend.

  36. Hallo Ihr Lieben,
    also richtig fasten tue ich nicht. Manchmal esse ich etwas weniger, um abzunehmen. Aber auch das seit einem Jahr kaum noch, denn mit einer seit Januar des vergangenen Jahres durchgefuehrten besseren Kontrolle meiner Essgewohnheiten habe ich zuerst innerhalb eines guten halben Jahres knapp 20 Pfund “abgespeckt” und das Gewicht danach gehalten.
    Wo ich faste, und das tatsaechl;ich waehrend der “richtigen” Fastenzeit, ist beim Alkohol. Das hat weniger mit meinem katholischen Hintergrund zu tun, denn ausser als ich noch bei meinen Eltern lebte habe ich mich daran nie gehalten, sondern weil ich diese Zeit einfach als gegebenen Anlass nehme, um zu sehen, ob ich ohne den “Stoff” noch auskomme, und um der Leber etwas Gutes zu tun. Und siehe da: es geht – und das ganz ohne Entzugserscheinungen. Es gibt Jahre, in denen ich dieses “Fasten” auch ueber die Fastenzeit hinweg ausdehne – einfach so, wie es mir passt. Ich muss sagen, es faellt mir gar nicht einmal schwer. Wuerde ich die Fastenzeit im katholischen Sinne – dass man also auf etwas so richtig unter Schwierigkeiten verzichtet – ernst nehmen, dann muesste ich wohl auf Kaffee verzichten. Das waere dann ein wirklich echter Verzicht. Aber dazu bein ich dann doch nicht bereit. Mein Lebenselixier muss einfach sein.
    Ich hoffe, Ihr seid mittlerweile schon “gut entschlackt” und nicht so duenn geworden, dass Ihr zweimal ins Haus kommen muesst, damit man Euch wahrnimmt. 😀

      Ja, für Dina war es auch die größte Herausforderung auf den Kaffee zu verzichten. Aber im Großen und Ganzen war es nicht so schwer, wie wir es uns vorgestellt haben. Wir haben uns natürlich auch immer gewogen und in der Woche nicht so viel abgenommen, so im Schnitt 5 kg. Aber dafür haben wir es ja nicht gemacht. Uns ging es darum, Verhaltensweisen zu brechen ganz im Sinne von Gurdjieff und uns zu reiningen. Sozusagen der innerliche Frühjahrshausputz. Und irgendwie merkten wir diese Reinigung richtig. Wir kamen auf tolle Idee, wurden viel ruhiger und gelassener. Allerdings hatten wir weniger Energie, was wir besonders merkten, wenn wir bergauf gingen oder im Garten arbeiteten. Aber wir fanden das Fasten so gut, dass wir beschlossen, es zweimal jährlich durchzuführen.
      Übrigens vermisste Masterchen ein kaltes Bier nach der Sauna sehr, aber eigentlich fanden wir das Fasten nicht so schwierig. Es war allerdings nicht das erste Mal das wir fasteten. Wir fanden es diesmal alle vier erhellend, mit unserer Gier konfrontiert zu werden, sich diese bewusst zu machen und zu überwinden. Diese Willensstärkung hat uns sehr gut getan.
      Hab keine Angst, wir haben nicht dem Suppenkaspar nachgeeifert. Die paar Kilos, die wir abnahmen, werden wir wohl zum Glück wieder zunehmen, um nicht zu unattraktiv abgehärmt auszusehen. Du siehst, die Eitelkeit verschwand durchs Fasten nicht 😉
      Wir wünschen dir und Mary eine wunderbare Woche.

By the way, the photos have really captured the forced at play when ways break at the coats. Beautiful!
