Day 5 Intermittent Fasting (IF) Journal

Sunday, September 29, 2013

5 successful days down and counting! I had my last meal ending at 6:15 PM last night and my first meal today starting at 10:30 AM, a 16.25 hr IF. I was mildly hungry. I went to bed at midnight and woke at 2 AM and just couldn't fall back to sleep, so today was less productive than I hoped. I did a quick warm-up, then elliptical, then weight training (lower body.) I only did 12 sets of exercise instead of 15 since I was pressed for time. Never got the baby out swimming; he took his nap late. Then I got absorbed in the Kite Runner movie. I ate 2250 calories and burned 305 calories. I am down 3 lb in 5 days, just by changing my "eating window." Yes, some may be water weight, but it is still encouraging. This IF stuff is easier than I expected it to be and I find I can do 16 hrs, no problem.

    Mzzchief, yes, elimination has been more regular / efficient. I have not noticed bloating or a flatter stomach. It would be nice though! Wow, a 6-lb swing in your weight. Not me. My swing is 1 lb + or -. My weight is remarkably consistent. I went on vacation and stopped tracking calories and exercise for 3 weeks, never weighed myself and I was still within 0.4 lb of my weight when I left. Thanks for your comments and questions!

    Ya, part of it no doubt is not just water weight but the weight of food in your body, bacterial bloom when you do eat.

    I have what I call a 6 pound "swing window"... 3 pounds on either side of my "real" weight. I don't consider pounds lost or gained until I start swinging under or over that window.

    Have you noticed any bloating/flatter stomach, or changes pro or con with elimination, any other changes beneficial or otherwise?
