Egads! I’ve did a 24 hour fast last Thursday, IF Sunday 15 hours, and IF for 15.5 hours today. I’ve taken 1 day off from Crossfit. On the fasted days i eat two full meals but am running short of my protein amount, eating 80 to 100g, trying to reach my supposed lean body mass of 138 lbs. I weigh 154lbs.Tonight I did a visual check of my BF around the waist. Yikes! I noticed more BF around my waist. Have not gained more than 1 lb. the past 6-7 days. Eating good fats (70-90 grams a day) avocado, nuts, almond butter, olive oil. Consuming good carbs, 99% vegetables…low starch or no starch veggies, hardly any fruit. Do use olive oil and other dressings on salad. Also, sleeping 6 – 7.5 hours a day.
I am puzzled ?? Thought fasting would help lose unwanted fat and by eating the PB way, would not lose muscle nor energy.
Mark, or anybody else. Do you have an idea how I can reverse the BF increase?
