After a sneaky look on scales today it looks like I haven't lost again this week
My fasts are correct (not eating anything past 7pm night before fast.Not eating till dinner time following day on fast where I consume all my 500 cals then nothing to eat after 7pm) I have also been doing 16:8 past few days on non fast days which I seem to weirdly enjoy. So days after fasts I am not eating till 11am.
Using this logic of doing my fasts correct, it must be my 'feast days' that are letting me down so I am going to start counting cals. I used to do Scottish Simmers which I was successful on,so I am going to do that again on non fast days to give me some structure.My points allowance equals 1200 cals (1300 by time you factor in free allowances eg calcium and fruit)
I think me personally I need some structure with my cals as having free reign is obviously just allowing me to maintain weight rather than lose.
Hopefully this added structure of cals (and a proven weight loss diet haha) combined with 5:2 and 16:8 will help shift some of my wobbly belly
Does anyone else find they need some structure and need to count cals??
