My brother has been doing fasting for years for health benefits only (he's skinny, and always has been!). Lately though, with all the hype surrounding it, I've decided to read up and see what it's all about and can't WAIT to live longer!
Everything makes perfect sense; I the science behind it all! ...And, of course, I'm hoping to lose a bit of weight into the bargain!!
Good luck to all the others starting their fasts today! ...And no stuffing our faces tomorrow - This is a eating plan for the rest of forever, so it's back to normal, until the next time! ...
This is just my second fast day and so far so good. Drinking lots of water with fresh lemon juice.
I'm actually a Dukan(er) advocate, or was. I lived and breathed the Dukan way of life. I had a huge following on their site. I lost 4.5 Stone. The weight fell off me( believe me when i say that it was not a good thing, it took nearly a year to mentally see how different i looked). And then a little miracle happened He's now 11 months old and Mamabear has the saggy baggy body of a walrus, the energy of a tortoise and the memory of a gold fish! but i won't lie and say i didn't enjoy getting here, i ate my way through 9 mths of anxiety/pregnancy.
But with another mouth to feed, and only one wage coming in to the household, i am struggling to...
After waking up at 6.30 I ate a Slimming World snack bar at 7am with a cup of tea with two sugars then nothing but 2litres of water until 4pm. At 4pm I had a 450 calorie co op chicken curry microwave meal but after that I craved sugar so had two malteser celebrations. Hopefully I haven't strayed too far from 549 calorie recommended limit.
Initially I found it pretty easy and the water definitely helped take the edge off the hunger, but I felt really hungry around 2 o clock when I wasn't as busy. Luckily when I finished work at 3.10 I had the school run to take my mind off it then I ate as soon as I got home. I've never enjoyed a microwave meal so much in my life
So all in all I feel I've not had a bad first fast day although the lack of energy going in has left me feeling very tired now so early night for me! Looking forward...
