fasts 15 and 16

I am very glad to say that I seem to be back on track.
I have successfully completed fast 15 on Tuesday and fast 16 is nearing it's end today. :oops:
I realized that I have to make sure that I don't eat too little the night before as I then would start a fast day starving already a soon as I wake up which for my is not a good way to keep going.
On a fast day it is best for me to have lots of lean proteins and veg that aren't too full of carbohydrate. On the fast days that went wrong I had had homemade soup out of carrots and some lean bacon- but that was already too rich in carbohydrates I think as I ended up binging right after lunch.
My eating plan for a fast day is: no breakfast, baked cod and veg for lunch and two eggs and lean bacon and lots of green pepper and cucumber for tea.
I also restrict my black coffee intake to three cups a day and rather drink lots of tea: black, green or herbal. Eventually I will have to be more inventive in my choice of recipes but so far this works for me so I'll stick to it.
I'm really relieved that it seems to work again and therefore I won't step on the scales tomorrow as I normally would on a Friday as I don't want to jeopardize my current good feeling. :geek:
