The details...

Saturday, May 30, 2015

.... The premise is that you eat in a 8 hour "window " of time . ( depends your schedule waking and going to bed time ) I get up at 6 Am or 7 AM .
do not eat until noon . Then I eat until 8 Pm when I stop .
.The next morning I have coffee or diet coke or any calorie free drink in the morning until I start my eating window of noon to 8 Pm.
You pick .
Your body starts to burn the fat in the fasting hours.I was getting thick in my midsection and nothing was working for me ! My midsection went down about 3 inches the first week .( I am about 15 pounds overweight .)
I am tracking my calories but now I am eating what I want to eat and the thing is this turns off your hunger hormone. I really did the research. Actually , hormonally speaking, I am feeling great !
For more information go to Dr. Mercola.com and enter "intermittent fasting" in the search bar . you can also go to you tube and Dr. Sara Solomons website and Melissa Mcallister .....
I have been on this for 2 weeks and I feel like a new person ! Dr. Mercola says it makes your body burn fat and turns on the growth hormone that we all lose as we get older .
You could have froot loops , ice cream , bread ...doesnt matter . 80 % healthy food and 20 % fun food for me ,
I have been eating popcorn again and bread and losing fat !

    Appreciate the info. My eating window is already 12 - 6/7 so no change required there. I'm considering fasting a couple days per week to see if this makes a difference for me. Low carb/high protein has worked great for me in the past. We've recently introduced fermented vegetables which is great for the digestive system.

    Zoey, thanks for posting the details of this. I will have to give it some thought. I am definitely a breakfast person and that throws my "eating window" way early.
