Can't believe it! I've finally found something that I'm going to be able to accept, use and stick with on a long term basis. I've been applying the principals of my ideas. I'm doing more research based on scientific results and its working for me pretty well so far.
Over the last 19 months I've gained weight by eating mindlessly. I don't consider myself to be a binge eater. I snack all day though on empty calories.
I have tried and read so many different plans and ideas about things. Eat this, not that. Do this, Don't do this. Nothing has worked for me until now.
I'm trying to give myself a little structure but right now what seems to be working is an eating cut off time each day. Sometimes I'll wait til later in the day the next day to eat again.
What does this mean? What am I doing? I'm eating less. That's all for now. I'm still doing some research on intermittent fasting as well. I'm reading the Fast Diet. I thought it would be a fad itself but it really isn't. It may be used in the market as a fad but its been applied for years.
I've never actually done a 24 hour fast before but I've gone about 17 hours and it was so much easier than I thought. It inspired me to just eat less in my day. I'm not going hungry. I take advantage of every single little pang in my tummy to be something that it isn't. Starvation? No. I'm too big to be going starving. And so far I'm still eating all the foods that I like but just less of them. I think my stomach has even shrunk.
Its not for everyone though. You have to take a plan, idea, or concept and apply it to your life. If it fits, it works and feels right, then do it. I'm doing that for myself. And I'm selling all my old diet books on Ebay. LOL.
