Ninja's diary - fasting and running to lose 50lbs
Yay! A new diary to celebrate a new diet. I was calorie counting but I'm moving over to fasting (and calorie counting). As much as I'd love this to be a super fast journey, it won't be, but as long as I keep plodding on, I'll get there.
Today is day 1, and my goal is not to consume any calories until 5pm when I will have a Thai green curry (approx 380 cals) and a total 0% yoghurt for 120 cals.
I'm not sure how to combine fasting with running at the moment. I know I can't fast fri or sat as I normally do my long run on Sat, so I may try mon and either wed or thurs to start with.
I'm going to try to eat healthily on up days and not go mad. I may need to calorie count as I tend towards binging. I'll see how it goes.
So in summary:
- running or other exercising for 30 mins 5-6 days a week
- fasting 1-2 days a week (mon and either Wed or thurs)
- healthy eating the rest of the time (with the occasional treat!)
