This is all very strange for me but I have to say I rather like it.
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...
