Brain Hunger!

by Loosejeans on 24 Feb 2014, 07:49

Managed to stick to my Fast yesterday despite suffering from Brain Hunger.

It has been one of the interesting things about Fasting, I'm sure it had been many years since I was genuinely "hungry" and Fasting has taught me that a bit of hunger causes no real problem for me as long as I eat at the right time, which for me is around lunchtime on a Fast day - but craving something even though I know I have had plenty can threaten my Fast and I have had to learn to combat it - mainly through diversionary tactics! I think long and hard about what I have just eaten and buy sparkling mineral water just for Fast days, I find that the slightly salty taste helps with cravings for sweet things.

Anyway I was pleased to be back at Friday's weight this morning so I am hoping to break through with a loss this week. Did the housework, now I'm hoping to walk the dog this morning despite the heavens still being open!

Hope you all have a great day and for those who are Fasting try a bit of fizzy water :geek:

Starting weight October 2011 was 183lbs Dukanned down to 140lbs found it hard to maintain so started 5:2 in July 2013. Lowest weight was 138lbs in September 2013. My goal is 133lbs or 9st and 7lbs
