How to get a Page field's ID only

Recommended Posts

I have a Page field and in ProcessWire, I can get values from it like this:

$page->my_page_field; // returns the ID
$page->my_page_field->title; // return the title

Given my particular situation, I'm hitting an infinite loop as I documented here a few years ago:

Is there a way to ONLY get the raw ID of the assigned page without ProcessWire getting all the attributes of that page leading to the loop?
