I realize that I’m now looking like a total flake with my many dietary failures. Whatever. The keto thing only lasted a day. It just wasn’t right for me. However, I think I’ve finally found my sweet spot.
I went back to give the intermittent fasting another try. This time, I started with 18:6. I only eat between the hours of 1:00pm and 7:00pm. During those hours, I eat whatever I want. Today is day 13, and it’s going great. I don’t get hungry. It’s so easy. I don’t even have to think about it.
I’ve decided not to get on the scale at all because when I do then I start obsessing about my weight. I have no idea if I’m losing weight or not. My clothes are fitting a little better. My face is smaller. The main thing is that I feel really good. I had been in a funk for over a year and a half, and that funk has now lifted. I have more energy. I do have a doctor appointment tomorrow, so I’ll have to weigh, but I’m not going to weigh again until the next doctor appointment.
At 1:00pm, I’m hungry so that’s my biggest meal. I have a bit or two of something around 4:00. Dinner is between 6:00 and 6:30. I’m not that hungry at dinner time, so I eat a light meal just because that’s what satisfies me.
I’m recommending 18:6 intermittent fasting. I feel like I can stick with this indefinitely.
