I am learning about and toying with Intermittent Fasting.
Google it- there's tons of info online.
I am finding it shockingly easy to go 16-18 hours on nothing but water and Green Tea.
Sure, I have some hunger pangs, but they come and go, believe it or not.
I observe them, drink another cuppa something, and life goes on.
My latest attempt is two days in a row- no problemo!
No headaches, no light-headedness, no shakiness.
I think knowing I can have a small late lunch (about 2 pm) and a regular supper makes the hunger totally bearable.
If I'm starving- I take 3 small bites of nonfat plain Greek yogurt.
Here's a funny thing-
I was trying to keep this a big secret from DH who I know would not be happy about me trying one more 'weird' diet or some such-
but he doesn't even notice it when I'm fasting!!!
I guess as long as I'm preparing and sharing our normal (healthy) dinner, he just doesn't notice. They're clueless, aren't they?
Will keep you posted.
*addendum: I am not advocating this for anyone else- remember, we are all on our own journey and there are many many right paths. I have never been able to fast before, either!
** second addendum: I did it one day the first time-
two days the next week (Wed and Fri)
and three days this week: Sun, Wed and Thurs.
The biggest problem is boredom, actually.
I've had a lot of time to catch up on sparking, paperwork, and reading.
