Intermittent Fasting Daily Menu/Results/Accountability



Recommended Posts

Anyone read this article? https://www.precisionnutrition.com/intermittent-fasting-women

If things don’t normalize in the next few days, I think I’m going to taper back on IF and aim for 12:12. I’m spooked by the delay of Shark Week and I’ve got enough hormone-related stuff on my radar already.

Hmmmmm, also this article: http://paleoforwomen.com/shattering-the-myth-of-fasting-for-women-a-review-of-female-specific-responses-to-fasting-in-the-literature/

I’m definitely not trying to put anyone off, but I wasn’t aware there was such a difference between sexes.

Advice appreciated - will report back when I'm .000005% copper. And I also apologize for hijacking the IF thread.

Speaking of IF, how frequently do you have a cheat day (hours-wise, not calorie-wise). Not like "I feel lightheaded so I need to drink some Protein or eat some cashews", I'm talking "I am going to go to the bar and drink a gin and tonic and then eat some damn tiny canapés". I'm only a week in, but was very tempted by option 2 tonight.

Mostly Friday night to Saturday night/Sunday morning no true IF for me. Too many food related occasions that are time restricted. So why should I be a ****** about? I just roll with it. Also this is usually when I eat and drink at the same time (very tiny amount)... Can't be altered.

You can always do a 5:2 alternate day type of fast where you eat 500 calories or less on non-consecutive days and eat normally the remaining days. It gives pretty much the same effect as eating windows and doesn't seem to have as steep a hormonal effect on women? You can read about it from Dr. Michael Moseley (5:2 Fast Diet), Dr. Johnson Alternate Day Diet, Dr. Krista Varady The Every Other Day Diet.

Hugs hope shark week gets here soon. I think it's probably coincidental, but you just never know!!

Nope, decided just to blow everything the hell up today. 12 hour eating window, and a diet mainly consisting of coffee, chocolate and dairy. Come and get me, Jaws.

Shark's just waiting to pounce, huh?

Ahahaha, you're not alone... I was doing great too until I had a surprise Netflix and chill date show up ... Then I ate 2 Protein bars, protein chips, fiber cracker w/ nut butter during the rest of the night when I swore I was done... It's hell week anyway

Oh, damn, okay - now I’ve got cystic acne cropping up. I cannot express how massively unusual it is for me to get anything but whiteheads (yes, I am that obnoxious person).

But I am apparently also exactly the person that the literature describes as unsuited for IF. It was an interesting ride my friends, but I am full-on bailing on this one on day 12: deep cystic zits, atypically delayed Shark Week, progressive fatigue, not just a stall but a slight gain... and my skin hasn’t been looking great either, despite drinking tons of Water I’ve seemed drawn and my skin has looked thinner/more translucent than usual. I’m going back to the tried and true schedule.

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Dang! I'm so sorry you're suffering so! I completely understand changing things up!!!

I really like that you are listening to your body. It's also way too soon to be doing IF anyway. Once you are about 2 years out, you should try it then. The magic of WLS will have dissipated and that is when you need to dig deep. See you then and best of luck!!
