I’ve now completed two weeks of intermittent fasting, and I feel better than I have in years. I went to the doctor Friday for my quarterly blood pressure check, and it was perfect. For this past two weeks, I’ve been fasting for 18 hours each day and eating whatever I want for six hours. I’m considering starting 20:4 tomorrow where I’ll eat only between the hours of 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm. I’m choosing those hours because I like to eat with my family.
I don’t know that I’ve lost any weight doing this, but I haven’t gained any, so that’s a plus. I’ve also been sleeping much better. I’m well rested, alert, happy, and feel great. It has also reduced my urge to stress eat.
