Started my day off with a giant salad with lemon juice and a spritz of olive oil and a size of grilled chicken breast when I went to meet a friend. Ate a plate of raw zucchini and baby carrots plus a half cup of southwest egg-whites and a third cup of fresh salsa. Planning on having more chicken and stir fry veggies in a bit.
My best friend just told me the other day about a study done on eating only in an 8 hour window each day and fasting the other 16 hours and she has lost 10 lbs in a week and a half. So I figure I have nothing to lose by trying it out. Today is only the second day and I have chosen to eat between 11 am and 7 pm. I would definitely say it is harder in the mornings. At night I just have to keep myself from wandering into the kitchen because I am bored. I almost always eat dinner before 7 anyways, but would catch myself munching on things until after 9 sometimes out of pure boredom.
I am hoping that this intermittent fasting doesn’t screw up my metabolism, but if I am not getting the results I want, I probably won’t stick with this eating schedule too long. I like eating right when I wake up because I have been doing it for the past 4 years, but my friend promised it didn’t take her long to get used to the schedule. Wish me luck! I’ll be walking around in a skimpy bikini in 3 weeks so I can use it ;)
