Trial and Error

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Yesterday i did probably the worst thing to do. well not the worst.. i tried fasting. just for a day to make my number for today. yeah never deprive me of food, i go insane. but i tried my Yogi Healthy Fasting Tea and it helped.. but i ended up cracking to only have a dish of 170 calorie yogurt. needless to say i woke up today feeling like i lost weight but lethargic because i had nothing to work off of. but it worked! i lost a half pound more than i normally do in a week. so i felt good, but now i'm making up for the loss of protein. i'm not going hog wild, just getting good nutrients in me. i dont think i'll do that again. i'll maybe eat at least one full meal and then fast or vice-versa and drink my tea.. but never a whole day.. live and learn.

    Dude. Fasting isn't good for you. And besides, it will set you back as far as weight loss goes. Without food you body thinks it's starving and will hold onto everything you do eat. That's how I gained all this weight in the first place; I couldn't eat due to anxiety, but once I started to again, my body basically stored all of it.. And as for "making your number" for that day, you're only trying to trick yourself.

    In fact, if you've just started doing a lot more exercise than you used to, you simply might need to eat more in order to get past whatever plateau you've been at.

    Don't fast if you can help it. That way lies anorexia, which is stupidity.

    I also learned the hard way and don't do that anymore unless I'm not going to work out the next day.
