Fasting Journal 7: Wrapping up this week
So it's been a week of this Time Restricted Feeding / Intermittent Fasting experiment . How did things go? Time to take inventory.
Overall I followed an 18:6 Intermittent Fast this week. I restricted my feeding window (on average) to 6 hours and I fasted for 18 hours daily.
I really like this protocol. I enjoyed my meals. I had good energy and got lots of chores done. My weight came down by 3.6 pounds (1.6kg).
Overall I feel great and I'm ready for the new week ahead.
Start Weight: 154
Today's Weight: 150.4 (no change from yesterday)
Total this week: (-3.6)
2 hard boiled eggs
1 oz turkey kielbasa
1 oz cheddar
1 slice Lemon Poppyseed Quick Bread*
1 tbsp butter
This is what my first meal looks like when I don't know what I feel for and the fridge has bits and bobs of food that need to be consumed. I don't like to waste food, ever!
The lemon quick bread was a real treat which I baked in the morning. I sliced it into 12 servings as the recipe indicated. I vow to eat only 1 slice and freeze the rest for future treats.
The danger with something that tastes sweet, even though it's not made with sugar, is that it can trigger a carb craving. So if you decide to make "legal treats" keep that in mind. Or if you think you're too vulnerable just now, then don't make these treats until you're well underway with this Way Of Eating (WOE)
3 oz pork chop (started with a 6oz chop which I couldn't finish)
10 medium sliced mushrooms fried in
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter

*The recipe for the Lemon Poppyseed Quick Bread (page 124) and other amazing recipes came from this book, The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen by Carolyn Ketchum. I love everything in this book!
