Alright, so yesterday wasn't so bad. I think I've hit somewhat of a plateau as far as weight loss (I think fat loss too) goes, so I decided to try a new IF approach. The past week or so I would eat my first meal around noon, then dinner around 8 and IF in the morning. I read Dr Eades' post on IF http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/i...better-health/ and I decided to give that method a try.
From his website:
2/7/11On the day we started, we ate until 6 PM, then fasted until 6 PM the next day. On the next day we ate supper right after 6 PM and ate breakfast and lunch (and a few snacks) the next day until 6 PM when we started fasting again.
D: 2 Coconut oil blueberry balls, pulled pork w/ SoK bbq sauce, green beans with butter, some guacamole
B: 3 eggs scrambled in butter with green peppers and onions, guacamole
L: chicken fajita salad with some sour cream, a few tortilla chips (dang!)
S: 3 coconut oil blueberry balls
Walked to work - 1/2 hour (it was 0 °F in the morning!!)
Starting the IF yesterday, I was afraid I would be so hungry and low energy while fasting, but it wasn't bad at all. Its so hard getting over the CW fears of not eating frequently enough (my body will go into starvation mode), eating fat (I will get so fat!!), and the idea of excluding carbs for health reasons. Tomorrow I'm planning to IF through breakfast and lunch, I think it won't be bad. Then I'm going to eat dinner and go climbing a bit later.
