XIII. on intermittent fasting

I started intermittent fasting a week ago Friday and really noticing a difference in energy, sleeping patterns, weight loss, & a massive change in hunger. Honestly I’m just feeling physically better all-round. / I’m fasting from when I wake up — at around 7.00 a.m. — to about 7.00 p.m. with a snack of some fruit or nuts at about 5.00 p.m. when I leave work and head to the gym. / Fasting just applies to food, here. I drink lots of water and one or two cups of black coffee. / I find that as long as I remember to eat the snack I don’t feel hungry at any point of the day, even after an hour long session at the gym, even though I’m probably only consuming 1500 calories a day. / I know that’s not enough calories, & I shouldn’t really expect any gains in strength on such a massive deficit, but I’m focused mostly on lowering my bodyfat at the moment. . . . I promise I’ll work much harder on being healthier very soon! — I’m almost at my goal.

  1. Congrats! My girlfriend and I just cut out all unnecessary sugar, and the benefits were instantaneous. My girlfriend lost 15 pounds in 2 weeks while I lost 10. It’s amazing how much your diet can affect your mood long term!

    Best regards and all the luck to continue your goal!
