I am looking at trying this for the month of June (or longer if able). I do have a few questions first though... and I couldn't find the thread.
I am 5'9.5" and at 206-209 currently. 18 years old, female.
I am eating mostly Paleo due to various allergies and intolerances.
I am considering having my eating window to be between 2-8 PM. A 6 hour window. I would have it until 7 PM... but I don't get off work until around 6 PM... and due to extreme traffic, don't actually get home until 6:45 to 7... and then I need a bit of time for dinner.
Is that reasonable?
I work a job where I'm on my feet almost all day, lifting heavy things (dogs, bags of dog food, cans of dog/cat food, etc), and in a position where I could easily work out in the mornings... I would be drinking a lot of water during the mornings... just not eating food. Is this OK considering my job?
I am looking to keep my calorie count during the evenings around 1500... but I'm just going to track it... not necessarily plan it or control it.
I am also looking at going for a run every morning before I go to work (I leave for work at 7 AM, to be there at 8 AM)... again... would this be OK to do?
I have noticed in the past that I personally tend to have more energy when I don't eat breakfast... so yeah.
Also... I'm still busy from 2 PM to 6 PM most days... so it'll be more of a lunch, and then a bite here or there... how should I make sure I'm getting enough calories? Just have foods that are higher in calories/protein (more meat?)?
So yeah... I'm starting tomorrow... just any advice you could give me would be awesome!
