I’ve been doing some intermittent fasting this week to break through it & I think I have, finally.
Thinking about trying this for a bit: Fast Five.
I don’t mind fasting…even kinda like it, like the way it makes me feel, and like the way it alters my relationship with food. And after 6 months on Atkins with only a 10 pound loss (I know, at least it’s a loss!), I’m loving the thought of a one pound a week loss while I get to still eat the foods I like. I’ll probably make my break-fast food Atkins-friendly, but for tonight it was a thrill to eat a whole mess of carbs.
Anyway, today was my first Fast Five day. Broke the fast with 2 eggs, 2 slices of wheat toast, a handful of peanuts, 2 cups popped corn with butter, and coffee with cream. Not a huge number of calories for my first night (about 800), so we’ll see how I feel tomorrow.
