I've always been against doing IF as I've always been very active and needed to make sure to eat regularly or I would feel light headed. And also read it's bad for your internal organs.... But since I've got older I don't need so much food,don't feel hungry like I used to and can go longer without eating as I've only been eating out of habit.

So back to work this week after having the Summer off. :(

Starting tomorrow I will be fasting. My eating window is 12pm - 7pm. I don't know what my calories will be but roughly 1000.

I was also going to do Keto but will not be starting that yet. I will be sticking to real foods and will not be using smoothies or baking cakes etc with almond flour etc like I did when I done Primal. I will be eating rice,meat,fish,veg and some fruits. This isn't about losing weight this is about feeding my body the foods it needs to keep my energy up as I'm still fairly active. I am Gluten and Dairy free. I have one cup of tea in the morning with Lactofree uht milk. Portion size is 20ml. That is the only dairy I can have.


Will update once a week with how I'm getting on. :)

That sounds like a good plan. I've made a fasting thread on the new keto forum here - the second post is a science paper you night want to read tomorrow. Sleep well.

Good luck hun

Like you I've never been too sure about IF but tbh having an eating window from 12 - 7 would only mean missing breakfast which I don't really have anyway. It's not having a cuppa in the morning which would kill me off, I can't focus without my morning cuppas.

Let us know how you are doing :)

Week 1 is over,

For me I think I was having breakfast as it's what we have been told to do. I don't actually feel hungry in the mornings. I thought I would seeing my last meal the night before is usually around 6/7pm. I've not had any sweet things except I do like some jelly(sugar free) after my dinner. I read jelly is good for your digestive system and helps with sleep. It's suppose to be good for your hair and skin as well. Don't know how much truth is in it. I know gelatin is good for you.

Back to work next week after having the Summer off. Have had to go in for a couple of days to do some cleaning this week. I cracked a rib 2 weeks ago so it has been hard doing things. Had so much planned for the Summer holidays as well. :(

On to week 2. :)

I am back. :)

Rib still not perfect but at least pain has gone and I am able to do things.

I reached into a big black rubbish bin to grab a black bag from the bottom of it after putting garden waste on the top of it and lent too far in and cracked the rib on the lip of the bin.

Still been IF'ing. Keep myself busy in the morning so food doesn't cross my mind until lunch time.
