Second Fast Day underway....

by Strodeinator on 24 Jul 2013, 17:08

Yesterday was my first normal eating day after my first fast and as thought I really did cut my food intake just because I didn't want it rather than restricting myself however I fully enjoyed the vino I treated myself too!

Today was my second fast day and so far no headache and very little hunger pangs, I will enjoy my dinner when I have it but I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything which is fantastic. I do need to keep reminding myself that any benefits from this will take time as I am impatient and assume good results happen as quickly as bad but we all know its not the case, I feel better and will do my first weigh in tomorrow.

So far so good, looking forward to all the great health benefits that come with this.

Today's menu will/has consisted of. A smoothie which works well for me on a morning and is nothing different to any other days breakfast and dinner will be a Malaysian curry with veg, thank you Innocent your pots of goodies have been really good this week as I haven't wanted to spend to much time preparing food but wanted something really tasty and filling and these have really done the trick.

Having fasted Monday & Wednesday this week I am happy with the choice of days I have made and feel even more comfortable that if I want to change these I can and will I am not dictated to about what and when to eat I can make a choice and continue to enjoy the other 5 days of my week.

Well 5:2 fasters have a great evening and countdown to the weekend :cool:
