Day 9 Hunger killing strategy.

At times whilst Intermittent fasting I may feel like I at g and rather than break my fast completely by consuming food I have adopted a diversionary tactic as of today.

Day 9 Intermittent fasting

I am now on my 9th day of   Intermittent fasting. This means I only eat once a day. I consume only water in between one meal a day. Occasionally I have a cuppachino with creme if the hunger pangs get the better of  me. Today I had a cappachinos with creme at 11 am. I did this because I knew the creme would kill any hunger pangs I had...

Day 8 Intermittent fasting

80.4 kg. Yesterday I fasted until 5 pm and I broke the fast with a green salad and 2 eggs. This plan seems to control my weight and give me energy during the day. There is a bit of discomfort but I am thinking that surely if I do this long enough it can be adopted as a way of life maybe?  After watching some YouTube videos on Ketogenic diet I ...

Day 7 Ketogenic Fasting Prepping.

Before you fast it is important to mention that if you are in ketosis ie you haven't consumed any carbs sugars or overloaded with protein and you have consumed avocado's and foods rich in fats then the switch over to water fasting is so much easier. The reason for this is that fats are highly connected to feeling satisfied ie you are absolutely not...

Day 7 Intervention threshold.

So this past weekend I didn't Intermittent fast. I didn't go overboard with eating however I consumed more than I usually would in a day. I did have a small amount of carbs in the form of rice and sugar in the food sauces. On Monday morning I checked the scale and I am up 0.5 kilograms. It's probably food weight but I have a very real goal of ...

Day 2 Yesterday was easy

Only eating once a day was not as hard as I thought. I think a big difference was that I was able to relax in the sun and had no hunger pangs. I ate a large green salad with eggs at 6pm. I think the eggs made me full. By 7pm I was done.  Weigh in this morning showed an increase in weight by 0.1kg. Not too concerned as this is a learning curve ...

Day 1 Weigh in 78.7kg

The point of fasting is to develop a radical strategy to reduce excess weight and to keep it off. Exercise would be a great way to assist here. I live on the 7th floor so will walk up and down the stairs and get stair fit. I will record how many steps I take today as well and will aim. To increase my walking. That's strategy number one. The next pa...

Day 0 Low Sugar High Nutrient Fasting.

So yesterday after finishing a 60 day fast I was able to reflect on what I had learnt and now that I had lost 18 kg on how I was going to keep those pounds off. What would be the strategy? Firstly I would have to integrate my eating back to a new norm. I have previously been told that eating a big breakfast with lots of fat was the way to go. ...

Day 60 - lost - 18kg. Test RESULTS.

The subject of Ectopic Fat is now on my mind. What is it?  Ectopic fat  are the deposits of fats  within the cells of tissue that normally don't contain fat. Principally around the heart liver kidneys and pancreas. Ectopic fat can add a mechanical impairment to the function of that organ and as such needs removing.  Gosh it...

Day 59 Changing to Maringa.

I went  to the doctor to get all my lab test results which I will release on my 60th day of fasting. Before I did the tests I discussed my fasting strategy with Charles Lubbe the founder of the big breakfast banting debate. Probably the most advanced focus I have come across that targets exactly what I am trying to do namely regaining optimum ...

Day 56 Sugar and Salt

Today I reflect on my last week of fasting and I notice with some disappointment that my total weight loss actually reversed and I gained weight for three solid consequetive days. When I analysed the possible reason I see that the liquids I was consuming had sugar in them. This was primarily pineapple and granadilla.  Pineapple has 10g per 100...

Day 52 A long walk to freedom from obesity.

After 52 days just on juices alone you would imagine I would have low energy and be weak from the lack of food. Well also consider that I have lost 16 kilograms of weight. This is weight that I no longer have to carry around. As a result  I find I now have a a bit of spring   in my step. So much so that at the end of today after...
