The Eight Hour diet

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Well, my daughter has been doing the diet in my title and has found some success with it. I decided I would give it a try as well. It was a lot of misery in the morning as I struggled to not eat until after 10am as we don't have dinner on the early side and I had to stay within that timeframe. It was painful but I usually exercised and tried to stay busy to not think about being hungry. It helped that the challenge for this week for our 5% Challenge was to drink water since I also did a lot of that.

I got on the scales knowing I had wet hair and already had breakfast only to see 1 pound more on the scale. I was horrified! I had gone way over what I generally do for my exercise minutes for the week and had pretty much stayed in that 8 hr. window. Speaking of windows...that experiment is going right out one! Yep, I think the smaller meals during the day will boost my metabolism instead of possibly shutting it down.
Next week...2 pounds down:) Well, that's the goal emoticon

    Hi fellow CloverLeaf. Nice to get to know you a bit . I'm not sure what the 8 hr diet is either. Don't be discouraged by the scale. If you are watching and tracking your intake, and trying to move more, you will succeed and likely see a loss next week. SparkPeople's suggestions really has sound nutritional advice that makes a lot of sense. Hang in there, keep trying and you will succeed.

    I don't think I could handle the 8 hour diet. I don't think it's all that healthy either.

    Fad diets are just that, Fad and not good for you. Glad to see you realize that.
