I started out weighing 11.8st with a BMI of 27.9 = OVERWEIGHT! I hate being like this .My partner, Matt, loves me this way, but I don't...I feel fat and unattractive, I don't want to be super skinny but health and fit.
I started my first day of fasting and it was terrible. I started with 120 calories for breakfast, no lunch and then stupidly went and did the food shopping. I got home and passed out - instantly Matt made me have 4 chocolate bars and dinner to get my blood sugar back up (he's a paramedic). He told me I was banned from every doing it again.
Never mind him! I tried it again the following Monday - 3 litres of water kept the headache away, breakfast and dinner, but I felt really hungry during the day. After reading some information online and Dr MM's book, i tried not having breakfast and fasting...
1. I have not increased my exercise, in fact rather the opposite as I am a fair-weather walker. I started doing 4 x 30 second sprints but only did it on 2 days out of my planned 3. I do strength exercises on 3 days a week but not in one session, I do them between chores or book chapters.
2. I overate on Friday and was not hungry when my window opened on Saturday but started eating anyway. Although I did 36 hour water fasts sometimes on 5:2 I'm a bit scared of going too long without eating if I am fasting every day. If this happens again, I will hold off until I either feel hungry or the end of the window approaches, and have a large omelette and salad.
3. No progress on going without pastry for a week!
