Good Morning 😊
I have been watching different YouTube videos about intermittent fasting. Heidi on Heavenly Minded Homeschool and a new channel I found called Six Miles To Supper have really inspired me to try this.
I have really struggled to lose weight for a long time. I’m tired of yo-yoing all the time. I started last Wednesday and as of yesterday I’ve lost 4 lbs! I can already feel a difference. I usually have stomach aches every time I eat, but I haven’t had that issue with fasting.
There are different windows of fasting .
12:12- eating during a 12 hour window and fasting 12 hours.
16:8- fasting 16 hours and a 8 hour eating window.
20:4- fasting 20 hours and a 4 hour eating window.
OMAD- Eat One Meal A Day
** I am doing a 18:6- I fast 18 hours and eat in a 6 hour window.
I will try different windows of eating to see what works best for me. I love that its not a diet or that I don’t have to follow a strict meal plan. I meal plan, but I don’t have to change anything. Easy Peasy 😊 I do track my calories on my Samsung Health App, just for my own information. I do occasionally like to throw in chips and salsa. Yummy 😋
Walking is my exercise of choice. I aim for 3 miles a day. My goal is 5, but I’m not pushing myself to hard. I have a long back yard and will walk it when Chloe plays outside or I will do my walk dvd.
Fall and winter are tough weight gaining months for me. I am hoping this plan will help me stay on track.
