The other day I tried IF. Now I usually cannot (or I should say do not) go more than a couple of hours without eating, but that is just because it's all in my head. For some reason, I actually get a panicky feeling when I realize that I may not be able to eat for a few hours. But I have noticed that since starting PB, I do feel full for longer periods after eating. My husband mentioned the other day that he's noticed that I don't get grumpy when I haven't eaten in a bit (like I always used to before PB). So the other day I decided to take the plunge and try IF, even though it sounded scary.
I took it easy. I didn't eat after 7PM. And when I woke up the next morning, I didn't eat breakfast. I waited until lunch at 11AM. I know. Not that amazing. But for me to skip a meal? It is amazing. And guess what? I didn't die!!! Yeah, I got hungry at about 9AM. Instead of eating, I exercised. And then I cleaned the house a bit. And then I played with the kids. It felt great.
I think I'm going to try another fast tomorrow.
