I'm a 38-year-old female, 5'8", currently weighing 164 lbs. (down from 170 this past Friday, 2/9/18) and I'm doing ADF. I fast from 7 pm, through the following day, until I break my fast at 11 am on the third day (I guess a 40 hour fast?). I've been doing well so far, keeping up with water and green tea and seltzer when the hunger pangs hit. My goal is to be at 150 pounds, as I have hit this weight before and felt fantastic. I'm also doing yoga 5 days a week and a brisk walk 3 of those days.
I wanted to try ADF because I've gone without eating for a full day before (stress, being busy, whatever the case) and I've never been a breakfast person so intermittent 40-hour fasts don't scare me. That being said, I am HUGE into junk foods, sweets and Diet Coke and cannot shake the cravings while I'm fasting. I will admit that I've only done 2 full day fasts (this past Saturday and today) so maybe it gets better, but does anyone have any advice? I've been trying to avoid going anywhere that has junky foods but I made my youngest a pizza for lunch and turned Bilbo-Baggins-wants-the-ring when I saw it coming out of the oven. Any help, guidance, advice or "I've been there, it gets better" would be soooo appreciated!!
