I’ve been trying intermittent fasting. It’s a simple concept and I am using a simple approach.
Concept: limit the number of calories you intake through intermittent fasting.
How: I don’t eat for a sixteen hour period. This is almost always 8 pm-11 am or 12 pm the next day (depends on when I can get lunch in).
Intermittent fasting works by prolonging the period when your body has burned through the calories consumed during your last meal and begins burning fat.Johns Hopkins Medical
On most days I have no problem skipping breakfast. Yesterday I even went for a bike ride and fasted for the Forst 30 minutes no problem. But today I am ravenously hungry and it is only 10 am. The difference is that I woke up at 430 am today whereas yesterday I was up at 6 am. So my waking calorie burning engine kicked in 1.5 hours early today.
It’s worth it though because I am eating lunch at KC Joe’s BBQ in an hour or so. Hooray!
Oh, and intermittent fasting has worked so far for me. I’ve lost 3 pounds in a few weeks.
