Intermittent Fasting Daily Menu/Results/Accountability

If this is the case, then it's truly too early for you to do anything other than mild TRE (time restricted eating). You should only do IF if you have zero issues getting about 90% of your Protein down from normal food during a normal eating window. Otherwise, it puts too much stress on your plan. Follow your plan and allow your tool to do its job. :) IF awaits when you really need it down the road.

Agree with this. Save IF for later. For right now your restriction is in place, so work with that!

I am so excited to have this new tool. It adds so much flexibility. If I gain a little, I can just do 5/7 or 7/7 for a week and get things back under control without sacrificing nutrition. The more I read about the physiology of metabolism, the more I believe that various forms of fasting are absolutely the way to maintain a healthy metabolism and improve overall health, without feeling deprived. :) I have been so scared of "what happens after the honeymoon period?" My appetite will return and my restriction will be less. But IF gives so much control and empowerment, that I really don't fear it anymore. I have tools to use that are effective and healthy. :) :) :)

I could have written all of this :)

I am impressed. I don't think I've ever managed 46g of Protein in one sitting! What was it?

I have blended PP with Protein powder & ice, for a not super delicious milkshake (but gets the protein job done!)

Yeah, I can do it with supplements. I thought she was using real foods 😉

So you guys- do any of you drink coffee in the morning and then still wait to start you window of eating until later in the day? I was thinking I could probably do 16:8 but I have to have coffee in the morning or I cannot function.

I used to be the same way until I gave it up. Getting rid of caffeine and sugar has given me very level energy throughout the day. I wake up ready to go and there is no afternoon slump. One of the best things I've ever done! :)

Haha. Since I’m not eating yet, I had a bit of spare time to log my foods for the day.
This is what I’ve got planned for my 4 hour window: I’ll report later how I actually did.

I’m excited bc it’s >70gm Protein for the day and no Soups, shakes, or supplements to help.

Yum!!! That doesn't look like 4 ounces of pork loin, though! :D So are those 2 things your whole meals for the day? Or will you have the beef and cheese when you get home? I think it's probably do-able. lunch meat is kinda slidery to me. So is cheese to some extent although my tum doesn't like it in great quantity. Post afters! :D

Okay so the hamburger meat/cheese combo was right when I broke fast at 2:15 my time.
Forgot to take either before or after, but it was about 28gm Protein for approx 1 cup food. I ate about 7/8 of it.

The pics I took there were my food I was taking to work and it was tough.
I’ve posted afters on those

Ate the p3 at 4:15 and finally finished (except for what’s left) the pork at 6:30.

Didn’t drink a single drop of Water in between so I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Overall I’m glad I experimented with this, but might have to work on less overall volume.
Basically if I try 20:4 again I might need to do a Protein Shake.
The only “sweet” one I can stomach is the BariWise chocolate marshmallow. For some reason that one goes down okay.
I also might try to experiment more with cottage cheese. That’s a great slider food and has tons of protein.

I weigh in tomorrow am and will see what kind of results I’ll get from these last 3 days.

Tomorrow I’ve got a plain ole regular 16:8 going— which is where I live 4-5 days weekly.

Gosh we're all so different. LOL! I can do 1 cup of cottage cheese and I'm miserably full. :) But I could have sucked down your P3 and then the pork. But I too feel like I'm cramming too much food into a 4 hour window unless I do a Protein drink.

You know my cure for protein drinks are mocha frappacinos or iced coffee lattes.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
