Current Trend Weight: 72.3kg (11 stone 5 pounds)
Yesterday marked the beginning of a new era, as it was the first fasting day since I declared that I would be switching to 6:1. That means that the week would begin no differently to how it began under 5:2 and that meant going to an Aquafit class on an empty stomach. I had real problems with sleeping on the previous night, and I didn't manage to sleep beyond 4am, but the Aquafit session still went really well.
Lunch consisted of the usual scrambled eggs with two slices of cold meat, and I had a piece of meat with some salad for my evening meal once again. I found it a bit difficult to get to sleep last night but once I got to sleep, I didn't have the same problems as the previous night in terms of staying asleep and so, I didn't wake up until after 6am this time after getting up on just a few occasions during the night to go to the toilet.
So far, all of this is standard fare and no different...
I've just realised that it's because my heaviest weight was 168lbs (2011) so I've shed 60lbs. 60lbs is 36% of 168lbs and 56% of my current weight.
I used ADF/4:3 to shed this weight and also to change my body composition as much as I could, and in line with healthy parameters.
I'll be very interested to see how IF/ADF/4:3 and similar fasting maintainers fare in the long-term, both anecdotally and in clinical studies.

I need to retake my measurements, but I can see in the mirror that things are improving. And I am delighted! Onward!
