Wednesday

I am feeling so good today. Woke up not at all hungry, I did have trouble sleeping but that is a common theme for me. Tomorrow will be a fast day again. Hope you have a great Wednesday!

The FastDiet: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, and Live Longer with the Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting

Ok I’ve complety and totally fallen for this form of eating. I don’t think it’s a diet per se. After watching a documentary,

Watch Eat, Fast and Live Longer with Michael Mosley on PBS. See more from Michael Mosley.

 

This whole idea made so much sense to me and science seemed very sensible. So today I did my first fast day. Yup that means 500 calories total. I was completely surprised by the whole thing. Firstly, I thought I would be really tired with no energy. Quite the opposite happened I was very energetic and time frenetic. Secondly, I did get hungry but it passed, really fast. I drank lots of water. I ate my two eggs scrambled in the microwave for breakfast and then no lunch. I cut up a carrot in small pieces and ate that for a snack,mid afternoon. For dinner I had quite a few calories to play with so I did tofu with stir fry vegetables and shirataki noodles. Yum, course I feel guilty because it seemed like so much food.

Tomorrow I can eat whatever I like, and I think I’ll be a little bit more mindful about it. I learned I am not hungry a lot of the times I eating food or snacking mindlessly. I feel good, slight headache and getting really tired of peeing 🙂 I’ll keep you posted.

With this plan you fast two days a week and my next day will probably be Friday. That’s the other thing I like about this, I choose the days to fast. I like the control AND the freedom.
