Qigong for Weight Loss Case Study: Day 1
When you have access to unlimited free energy, much more becomes possible!
For the next 21 days, I’m not going to eat *any* food. I’ll be living completely off of a free universal energy source known for thousands of years to the Chinese as Qi (sometimes spelled Chi). I’ve discovered that you can live a happier and more energetic life without the need for food when you learn to live off energy directly.
Today’s blog post is the first post made to the Awaken Qi website, where I’ll be sharing my experiences of cultivating more energy in life through the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong, which has changed my life completely.
Note: This blog post is also a supplement to the video above, so be sure to watch the video for the full story 🙂
Here are a few of the reasons why I LOVE Qigong:
Qigong has helped me in many other ways. The transformation within me has been so dramatic and wonderful that I have felt an overwhelming inspiration to create this website.
I'm teaching what has helped me so much because I know it will help you too.
Why am I doing this? Because this is truly something the world needs to learn!
21 Days Without Food
For the next 21 days I am only going to drink water (commonly called water fasting) and practice Qigong. I’ll be getting all of the Qi (energy) that I need without feeling deprived or even wanting food. I’ll be following the process that I’ve outlined in my new book "Qigong for Weight Loss,” which is now available on Amazon Kindle for $1.11 until April 13th, 2020 (the permanent price on Kindle will be $7.77).
FYI: The book doesn’t require you to stop eating!
In fact, the book will also show you how to lose weight without eating any less food (but it also does teach you how to eat less food and be happy in the process).
I’m doing this as a more extreme example of what’s possible with what’s covered in the book with Qigong, and to provide more information to others who are curious about fasting, intermittent fasting, water fasting, dry fasting, breatharianism, bigu qigong, and living off of energy.
Day 1 Without Food: Timeline
Day 1 started on March 23rd, 2020. My last meal for 21 days was at 7pm on March 22nd. I had some pizza and a slice of cake for dessert the night before starting this fast.
Here’s what I did during day 1:
Woke up and weighed myself, 237.9 pounds. Practiced Qigong for 90 minutes. This practice is fully covered in the free “Discovering Qi” course, which is the next course on this website after the 21 day fast completes.
Ran errands. Drank water if I was thirsty. Went food shopping, had a few appointments and was home at 10:30 am.
Set up video camera equipment and did a few short test videos to test light and sound to record my first video for the Awaken Qi website and this video series. Didn’t think about food once as I was pretty busy figuring this out. Drank water when thirsty.
Recorded the first video (day 1) explaining what I’m doing here, mentioning the new website and new book, told a little more about the story behind doing this and gave the introductory first mini-lesson on Qiqong (watch the video above to see a practical technique on how to start filling your body with energy with very little effort).
Practiced the process outlined in the Qigong for Weight Loss book. Bigu breathing for 15 minutes, spiral tan tien Qi charging for 5 minutes, swirling qi expanding for 5 minutes then static for 5 more minutes. Then a 10 minute quiet integrative meditation. My wife called and needed me to meet her earlier than we’d planned so I didn’t do the fat burning meditation (sometimes you have to make adjustments for life). Since I did 90 minutes of qigong earlier, there wasn’t any loss by leaving this out today. When interrupted by life, just come back to your good habits and you’ll be fine!
Spent quality time with my wife. She ate dinner. I noticed I had a very mild headache from the busy day so I took a bath. I drank a large 32 ounce glass of water during the bath. By the time I finished the bath, the headache was gone. I didn’t have any hunger due to the fact that I’d been busy enough to take my mind completely off of eating and because I also did the bigu breathing for 15 minutes (which typically curbs all hunger for 6-12+ hours when I do it).
Did Qigong with my wife for 30 minutes.
Spent time with my wife until going to sleep.
Final Thoughts About Day 1:
It was a great day! I practiced Qigong for 2 hours and 45 minutes. I had plenty of energy and no hunger. I’ve typically found if I practiced 1 ½ to 3 hours of Qigong a day I barely even think of eating. With 30-90 minutes of Qigong I may have a thought or two about food, but still don’t have a need to eat. The reason for doing extra Qigong is that I’m spending extra energy creating this website, making videos, editing them, and writing this blog post. That’s a TON of mental energy, and charging up with extra Qi is what’s needed to pull this off!
If you’re not fasting for 21 days and take a more relaxed approach, 20-30 minutes of Qigong a day should be enough for you to feel a noticeable difference. Especially if you’re just getting started, feel free to ease into this and see how even doing 5-10 minutes 1-3X per day feels. When you discover how good doing a small amount of Qigong feels you will follow your natural inspiration to do as much Qigong as you want to in order to fulfill your own needs.
My new life’s mission is to help people improve their lives through the practice of Qigong. For the next 20 days (day 1 already completed!), I’ll be posting a new video and blog post every day to share what I’m doing to live with high energy, accomplish a lot, and be happy without eating and following the plan that I’ve shared in my new book “Qigong for Life.” Pick up a copy on Amazon Kindle and if you could leave an honest review after trying the process and feeling the benefits then it would support this work going out to more people!
There’s also a podcast coming to this website very soon that will showcase experiences and success stories from other people who have read this blog, watched this case study on YouTube, have practiced Qigong and improved their lives. Stay tuned for the podcast, I’m working hard on creating it to be one of the most powerful resources available to you for energizing your life!
