My food management journey

Daily? record of my food management journey to see if I can learn more strategies for effective management of my food consumption

Days 22-24 I think!

I sounded very smug last post...

The last 2 evenings I have not done so well, I think I ate because I was tired?? Apart from the choccie, the other foods I ate were nutritious, but still more than I think I needed. But not tooooo bad....

I do find it much harder in the evening to know if I am genuinely hungry. I think that because IF can make you get used to feeling hungry, sometimes it is more difficult to tell if you actually are... During the day it is generally easier to ignore hungry pangs, and disguise them by drinking and keeping busy. Evenings are trickier for me.

That being said, I am still pretty happy with how I have gone during the latest challenge. I am certainly not putting on weight.

Today is Saturday, and I am fasting for as long as I can manage. It is mid afternoon now, might be able to hang on til dinner. Might not!

Goal reached December 2013, weight loss strategy 5:2, weight management strategy is eating a wide range of (mainly) whole foods but am back to following 5:2 for a while. Main eating challenge is the evening munchies! :razz:
