G.O.M.B.S! :)

Monday, June 09, 2014

This is going to be a quick blog to tell you what I have been doing since the beginning of June, which is helping me see results finally.

I have been focusing on eating nutritional power meals filled with G.O.M.B.S, sounds like combs but with a "G" :)


So, anyway I kind of made up an eating plan(BECAUSE I DO NOT LIKE COUNTING CALORIES) that I am able to stick with that goes along with an alternative day fasting plan. Some people think a.d.f is crazy, some don't, there is a lot of interesting science.. and what not, that backs up a.d.f. (Google it if you're interested) So on Mon. Wed. and Fri. I have been having my power packed G.O.M.B.S meals for lunch and a snack.

Since they are filled with nutrients my body needs..I haven't felt any over the top cravings. Drinking water, taking my multivitamin and fish oil, and getting good sleep, most nights. I just make sure not to eat past 6 or 7 p.m.

On non-fast days, which are Tues, Thurs, and Sat & Sun. I just eat normally and healthy. Nothing like an over the top- all out frenzy at a buffet or anything. Just how I would do a normal tracking day.

Then I have been walking and playing outside with my kids. Need to get serious again with my strength that! So, that's what I have been doing since the start of June...I like the results I am seeing, and I could see myself sticking with this for however long I have too. We will see when the time comes. So far, so good! :)

    This sounds like a very interesting thing to try. I do not believe that I could accomplish this as I do not enjoy onions and mushrooms. My word would have to be something like peppers and cucumbers. It would be GCPBS.... Not really as much fun as the gombs. lol I am happy you are seeing results! It is always good to mix it up a bit!

    Your blog title had me curious...all I could think was "bombs" I know...but what is "gomes"! lol. Thats cool that you've found something that is working for you! It feels sooo good to eat healthy & to do healthy things for your self/others (ie playing outside w/ your kids--so special & healthy all in one!) Ya, I want to get on ST too...just have had stomach issues that have prevented me from progressing (I have an errosion, something that is before an ulcer is formed, so when I was doing ST it would really hurt that area)...So by mid-July its suppose to be healed up. So I'm *trying* to be patient :) You have a great day! emoticon

    Hey, good to hear from someone else trying some form of fasting! The GOMBS idea sounds intriguing, I'll try that on my next fast day!

    Good for you. Back in January, I started intermittent fasting. For two twenty four hour periods per week I ate nothing. (Basically I ate an early dinner and then skipped breakfast and lunch the next day.) I did it for 3 or 4 months with very mixed results in terms of weight loss. I never gained weight, but my loss slowed down dramatically from my previous more traditional calorie counting. However, I felt more energetic and my mind was much more clear than I ever remember. It was a good personal experiment and I think I'll incorporate intermittent fasting on occasion going forward. So go ahead and eat your GOMBS.
