    Did my first IF yesterday!

    Primal Fuel
    And I'm stunned I was able to do it, and how manageable it was. I ate dinner at 6pm, then didn't eat all the next day until 6pm the next day. I felt some periods of slight hunger, but no desperation to eat. And when heading home from work, I felt really quite energized. I did a weights circuit just before dinner then broke the fast.

    What I find interesting about it is that I've been a hypoglycemic since childhood, and always ate every 2-3 hours during the day (lots of blood sugar lows). I really doubted I could go a whole day without eating. Since going primal I haven't had any hypoglycemia symptoms at all and have been able to stretch out meals, sometimes not eating between meals, making me think that possibly I haven't been hypoglycemic; maybe sugar & starch just induce hypoglycemia-type symptoms in me.

    I think I'll do an intermittent fast every week, maybe twice a week!

    For me it was a weekend of Battle Assembly(I'm in the Army Reserve) that started me on IF. I knew the food was going to be terrible so I took it as an opportunity to try it out. I ate regularly(Primal) on Friday, but then only ate dinner the next two days. I liked it so much that I've since been doing dinner to dinner IF everyday since then. I had a slight headache for two days the first week, but after looking in the forums and figuring out that it's normal(carb flu) I pressed on with no problems. My energy is very level and I find it to be simple and enjoyable to just plan for one good meal!

    Congrad's Larabelle on your first IF. As of writting this reply I'm about 22 hours into my first IF. I do agree that it isn't terrible hard to do (so far). I find when I'm idle I think I'm very hungry(aka starving), but the minute I get busy I forget all about my hunger. I'm a type 2 and real happy with how my body has responded to going primal too. My doctor had told me to eat 6 meals a day, so yea CW isn't all its cracked-up to be.
