Hi! I'm in the midst of transitioning from Tim Ferris's weight loss plan to full primal--I'm eating as primally as possible and hope to have a fully primal lifestyle by the first of the year. I had a very good experience on the "slow carb" diet, losing about 45 lbs in 6 months before stalling out due to the perfect storm of Life Stuff about 18 months ago (Personal loss, busier with Work work and PhD work, and a lot of unexpected travel). I kept exercising during that period, and it absolutely helped keep me sane. I only drifted up about 10 lbs back since that low, but I'm to the point where I'm just tired of being chunky. As of today I'm about 40 lbs away from the top of my college weight range, where I think I want to be long-term. With course work winding down, now is the time for me to kick my efforts up to the next level. I have already said sayonara to legumes (no big loss honestly), and dabbling a little in IF this week. Even eating clean my digestive system always goes a little haywire right before and the first day of my cycle, so I'm trying a 24-ish hour water fast to see if it helps my body. Have any ladies experimented with IFing right before or during your cycles, and did it help?
