Dr Becky Gillaspy- You Tube



Recommended Posts

In my most previous posts I've been lamenting on a weight gain three years post Weight Loss Surgery(WLS). No matter what I did the extra five pounds did not want to come off. It also lead to a spike in my A1c which put me back into the Type 2 category. I'm very fortunate to have friends and family that have had WLS after I had mine. We form an informal support group by calling each other up and helping to assist in times of need. Well, it was my time of need. Two of my fellow WLS pals directed me to a You Tube channel, Dr. Becky Gillaspy. They said her videos have helped them and it might spark an idea or two for me.

I looked at her videos and two in particular caught my eye. What happens when late night snacking and Intermittent Fasting. I realized that I did snack prior to going to bed. I don't snack on junk food but no matter what I snacked on prior to bed was having a negative effect on my weight. I stopped eating at 7PM and did not resume eating until 8AM which gave me an intermittent Fast of 13 hours. When I conducted my weekly weigh in yesterday I found that I was down 3.5lbs from the previous week.

It is too early to claim success but it looks as if this strategy might prove to be fruitful. I'm hoping that this also helps with my A1c levels. If anyone has any information regarding the late night snacking and intermittent fasting I would appreciate you sharing it. Thank you and I hope you all are enjoying your new found health.
