Pokémon Crystal: Nuzlocke Challenge #00 - Look what I found!

Oh hey, look what I found! All this started when I was sorting through some boxes to rearrange the storage in both my home office and bedroom. During this shuffle, I found my Nintendo 64 transfer pack with a copy of Pokémon Crystal in it. Now owning a copy of Pokémon Stadium 2 I decided to throw it into my Nintendo 64, attached the transfer pack only to discover the inevitable horror of all old Game Boy game collectors… the battery in Pokémon Crystal was dead.

Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. In this respect, it’s not a diet in the conventional sense but more accurately described as an eating pattern.
