Intermittent Fasting (My First Day Questions)
So today I end my first attempt at IFing. In about an hour I'll have done my first 24 hour fast. Believe me, I can't remember a time in my life I have EVER gone this long without food. All i've had is water.
And honestly... it's not so bad.
At first I got really hungry... but then it went away... then I got hungry again much later... but it went away too.
And here I am... really not that hungry at all. But I do plan to eat when the 24 hours is over.
I have figured out a little schedule in my head for fasting. So I have a few questions.
Is 3 fasts a week a good idea?
How long are your fasts? 24 hours?
Do you tell your loved ones? (Because I know my husband would kill me for fasting. He'd be like "oh that's unhealthy!")
Do fasts feel different after you've done them for a while?
I gotta say, I'm suprised how easy this is. Two months ago I would have gotten the shakes and collapsed on the floor (literally) if I would have gone 3 hours without food. Now I can go 24 hours! This is amazing!
