Hey everyone it’s been a while since I’ve been online here. I just want everyone to know that I am doing great with intermittent fasting. I also have been going to the gym about 4-6 times a week.
One thing I have learned about intermittent fasting is that you have to enjoy the lifestyle as well. And you can’t look at it like a diet because if you do you will fail. Another way to make it easier is to always make it look like you aren’t fasting. If you always think I’m fasting then you will fail at it. Try to keep busy because you can keep your mind off of it. And of course drink plenty of water. I do occasionally add a very little sea salt to my water once a day. I don’t add enough for flavor but just enough for my health. If you like sea salt you can just eat a few salt crystals and then drink water as long as it’s tolerable for you. I don’t always remember to add salt every day but I try to when I can.
In the past I have added beef broth to my meal window for the minerals it provides for me.
I find that 1 meal a day is the best for me. And if I add anything healthy to eat I always keep it within my 4 hour eating window, but I usually just do it within an hour.
There are exceptions to my eating window because on the weekends for my social life I do change my eating time because like I said before I try not to announce my fasting openly because it makes it easier for me. Most of my family and friends know that I do fast but I don’t talk about unless they ask me. If it makes it easier to talk about it then go for it. I just try not to constantly think about it.
