Food for Thought – Intermittent Fasting
I talked about intermittent fasting in the first week of the challenge. We’re now in the third week and you should be through the carb flu and should be fat adapted (if you haven’t been cheating. You haven’t been cheating, have you!?). So let’s do some intermittent fasting!
After your dinner, see how far you can make it into the next day before having breakfast. Remember that Primal rule, eat when you’re hungry! Don’t just eat because its 8 am! Then you can try eating within a six hour window. Eat something at 10am, then 1pm and lastly at 4pm. See how long you can make it into the next day before you start chewing on your hand! Just kidding! You should be doing OK at this point. Then you can try skipping a meal completely!
If you want to see some weight loss, intermittent fasting is the way to go. Just think about it. You’re eating fat and your body is starting to use fat, instead of sugar to fuel itself. If you fast, that means no more ingested fat, so your body starts using the fat on your body! Sweeeeet… you fat burning beast!
