Well as you can see I lost some of the bloating. Today was a little tough as I was up at 6am and didn't eat til 12 noon to start my 16:8. I had kind of hoped to do a fast with 2 small meals but I was too hungry. So my food went as follows:
8am-12pm 4 coffees with milk
12pm demi baguette, butter, 2 easy single cheese slices (250)
tesco vegetables with garlic butter (250 cals)
2 crackers with soft cheese
530pm: 2 boiled eggs
5:45pm: 2 porch chops, mini pizza (590 cals)
bite of a mars bar and bite of icecream burger (100cals)
Total 1366 cals(myfitness pal)
So I'm a good bit under my TDEE but I am very full after my dinner to be honest and feel bloated. However, I found the strectch between 12 and 530 quite tough and I'm quite drawn and tired today. I did my 5mile run with the girls and we had to stop off for me to get water (nevfer happens) and felt quite dizzy a lot. However, it takes time to get used to this and I'm still slightly jet lagged.
As for today I have been surprised that I haven't been hungrier. I've enjoyed what I've eaten but haven't craved snacks or nibbles. That may change and I'm going to use this blog to monitor how I feel about food and eating on fast and non-fast days.
Feel supported by all the comments and...
I'm 54.9 kg as of this morning. Thrilled to bits. I've lost 19.7% of my body weight and am now healthy on all measurements. I'm still aiming to replace more of my body fat with muscle and need to firm up the flab round my middle. I will allow up to 2kg more weight loss as a buffer zone, but I'm happy with my size now
Thank you Dr Michael Mosley!
June 2013 I was 127lbs and 42% body fat
March 2014 119lbs 30.1% body fat
March 2015 102lbs 20.1% body fat
My stringent gym/workout/activities mean that I've managed to conserve my muscle mass remarkably well given the 17lbs weight difference in a year. Usual estimates are that during WLM, somewhere from 15-60% of drops in mass will be lean body mass (LBM) rather than body fat (BF).
I lost 300g of skeletal muscle which is:
i) within the repeat error range for a DXA
ii) much lower than would usually be expected
iii) the version I prefer is that this shows that my vanguard actions to retain my muscle mass are allowing me to hold station.
The downside of iii) is that it might indicate just how very hard I need to work to maintain my muscle mass and it would tend to confirm my suspicion that surgery...
