On Monday I started Intermittent Fasting.
I’m going with the 5:2 variety; 5 days a week you eat normally, not worrying about tracking calories but trying to eat clean anyway, and 2 non concurrent days a week you eat no more than 600 calories (500 calories for ladies).
I was surprised how easy it was until later in the evening…just at that point I would normally have a snack. I stayed strong though and made myself proud.
My intake for the day came in at a little under 600 calories. Here is what I ate.
Breakfast – a boiled egg and a cup of green tea.
Lunch – a tin of Heinz Oxtail Soup.
Dinner – Turkey breast steak stir-fry (a small amount of olive and seasame oil and soy sauce to season and cook) and an apple for dessert.
Snacks – cucumber and celery crudités.
I drank COPIOUS amounts of green tea and water as well as a cup of caffeinated black coffee.
Tomorrow I have my second fast day…I’ll let you know how I get on.
