Back at it again. This time I’m incorporating intermittent fasting. I’ve done it before but didn’t really pay attention to what I was eating in my eating hours. I’m decided to do the 16:8 method. While doing the 16:8 method I will fast for 16 hours and eat for 8 hours. I am planning on 2 meals per day 5 hours apart.
Day 1 – 9/4
Breaking fast @ 3:15
Apple cider vinegar tea (acv lemon hot water)
1st meal- Cauliflower broccoli onions tomatoes eggs cheese
Venti Skinny Americano
2nd meal @ 8:15
Broccoli peppers cheese and eggs
No gym today, I felt pretty hungry in between meals and around midnight.
Also felt a bit nauseous and gassy most of the day. I think I will stick to eating between 12-8.
I made brownies last night and there were many leftover and all I want to do is eat some but nope I won’t
Day 2 – 9/5
Breaking fast @ 12
Apple cider vinegar tea – lemon
Coffee with skim milk and truvia before the gym

On the struggle bus today in regards to cravings. I’m not craving anything in particular my brain just wants to me eat but my stomach isn’t hungry.
I haven’t had an popsicles yet and I’m proud!
Day 3 – 9/6
Breaking fast – @ 10:30 and I’m rolling my eyes!

I generally try to break my fast around 12. This just means I’ll need to finish eating around 6:30pm

Leftover chicken and mozzarella cheese stick.
2nd meal – @ 7:15

I was a hot mess especially in regards to fasting.
I also had no interest in cooking anything so my meals weren’t very productive.

Week one complete! I can’t wait to be done!
This round of the south beach diet has been much easier because I know what to expect and I went though it only 2 weeks ago.
It has also been harder because it’s not as fun and interesting. I’m also almost positive that I won’t lose as much weight this time. But who knows, I won’t be weighing myself until the end!
Week 2, Here I come!
