As I mentioned in my prior post Intermittent Fasting and WW, on November 10th I started back on WW. Although I know it works perfectly on its own, I added intermittent fasting to my plan as well. This was a great idea. I’ve lost 3.4 pounds in 14 days. This is good considering my affinity for Hello Fresh meals.
The reason I added intermittent fasting is because once I start eating for the day I tend to be hungry all the time. Intermittent fasting curbs my hunger and helps me to be much more successful. I don’t think about food all the time or feel deprived because I know a wonderful Hello Fresh meal is coming for dinner. The above meal is Brown Sugar Apple Bourbon Pork Chops with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.
Of course, the Hello Fresh meals use my entire day’s points, but that’s not a problem because I skip breakfast and eat a zero-point lunch. I haven’t been snacking much, but I’m sure to add cups of veggies and to drink all my water because on the new Personal Points plan that adds points.
Thanksgiving will likely be a challenge. It will be made tougher by the fact that we do it twice, once with the kids’ dad’s side of the family and once at our home the Saturday after. I’m going to use intermittent fasting to at least control the hours I eat.
