My advice on IFing is to let it come to you naturally and not force it. Before you know it you will be skipping meals not because you are holding yourself back but because you look at your watch and say, "Wow, I totally forgot to eat lunch. No biggie."
Any plan that has you watching the clock and saying, "Can I eat yet?" is crazy making. The stress is not worth it.
I'm not that kind of person who is able to naturally skip a meal. I love eating and food too much But if I tell myself, that this or that day I will have only dinner and that's it, I'm fine with it, no stress. I'll try and will see
Not yet, but you may find it happening. Ketosis has a funny way of changing you. As long as you aren't doing the white knuckled stressing out, that's good.
I tried doing the warrior diet thing before going primal and it was a total bust. I ate enough for the whole day in one meal and then some. Now I only eat one main evening meal (with maybe some coconut milk in my tea or a glass of kefir in the morning) and it just comes naturally.
Hi sugar free life, I've just read through your journal and wanted to say well done.
Some of your recipes combinations are things I wouldn't have thought of... I'm certainly going to give your halva alternative a go :-)
One suggestion I have is to maybe stop weighing yourself daily. My worry is that being a slave to the scales causes undue stress and upset when your weight moves in the wrong direction. Do you think you could weigh weekly or fortnightly instead?
Just a thought :-)
If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
Have just had a read through your journal. You're doing great! I'm going to subscribe right now in the hope of seeing more yummy food pictures and cute kitten pictures (don't know which are better!).
Also love L Cohen and, funny coincidence, used to have the same Sandman quote in my email sig years ago (think it's Ovid originally?)
So I'll be reading and cheering you on.
