    !@I)@!$# Ruined my IF

    Primal Fuel
    Need to vent... I was IFing for the first time, 2 hours from being done. It has been really tough for me, but I was going to make it. Walking through the building and here sits what looks like a water dispenser. Absentmindedly, I fill up a cup and take a gulp. Full of the sweetest most sugary freaking lemonade I have ever tasted. My day is ruined. I hate society and its norms.

    Don't beat yourself up over that. IFing gets a hell of a lot easier too once you get used it.

    Haha it's ok. I'm pretty sure that amount wouldn't make your fast break. Go with the 16/8 fast at first... it's easier to get used to and gradually you can increase...

    Don't stress the little stuff, IFing isn't just about clocking hours, it's about making a commitment to health. Yesterday I planned on fasting till 2:00, but at 10:00 I started getting stomach cramps, so I ate a handful of nuts, and guess what, I'm still healthy! Just try again tomorrow

    Long Fast..

    I think the idea of calling it a fast when you eat everyday is the stupidest thing about primal / paleo..

    If you are struggling and starving your way through it you aren't doing it right. You need to first become a fat-adapted person. That means in the absence of incoming calories your bodily happily and effortlessly switches over to your fat reserves as an energy source. After that, then you ought to be able to fast without any struggle at all. If you get hungry, go ahead and eat. It's intermittent, not on a schedule.

    You almost made it though, only two hours to go and you would have the glorious victory! Maybe next you should ask the society to put up some machines for bulletproof coffee instead of sweet lemonade?
