Gandhi, at age 22, was called to the bar in June 1891 and then left London for India, where he learned that his mother had died while he was in London and that his family had kept the news from him.  His attempts at establishing a law practice in Bombay failed because he was psychologically unable to cross-examine witnesses. He returned to Rajkot to make a modest living drafting petitions for litigants, but he was forced to stop when he ran foul of a British officer.   In 1893, a Muslim merchant in Kathiawar named Dada Abdullah contacted Gandhi. Abdullah owned a large successful shipping business in South Africa. His distant cousin in Johannesburg needed a lawyer, and they preferred someone with Kathiawari heritage. Gandhi inquired about his pay for the work. They offered a total salary of £105 plus travel expenses. He accepted it, knowing that it would be at least one year commitment in the Colony of Natal , South Africa, also a part of the British Empire.  
Exactly!! I know what you mean, when I was anorexic I did feel the high of not eating, you feel super awake and aware and with lots of energy despite being very weak. I beat that and started to get healthy and then about a year later I heard about IF. When I tried it I got the same high off it, which I really enjoyed but it also made me so anxious because I felt I was slipping back into old habits, it all seemed too familiar… Also, I lost my period for a few months and it came back the week after I started eating normally again.
I know it works for some but I wouldn’t advise it to
1. Anyone (man or woman) that has had an eating disorder
2. Any pre-menopausal women, there has been too many cases of hormonal imbalances due to IF
