Intermittent Fasting and Mental Focus
Hi Intermittent Fasters!
I've been doing an eating window for a couple of months now, and it works for me, on a lot of levels. The main area that it's not working is mental focus. Around 1-2 PM, I just run out of gas. I can do really basic mechanical things, but thinking creatively (which I need to do because of my job) is out of the question. Whatever I'm working on, my mind drifts to food. My body does not feel hungry, but I'm so distracted mentally.
My window is in the evening, from 4-10. I do this, because after I eat a meal of any decent size, my body just starts to drag and feel tired, so it doesn't work for me to eat in the middle of the day. Plus, I like being able to go to dinners without having issues.
Anyone have a similar issue? Suggestions?
