I was looking into a few things to try, however, but the restrictions on various diets are not working since I’m too emotional and give up after a day.
I know I need to do something but I only have a less than 20% success rate. You know, take two steps in the right direction only to fall a mile back.
This week I started fasting. I am going to try to get into 16/8 but I have to work into it. Over the past week, I did the following for the fast:
- Day 1 Fasted 10 hours
- Day 2 Fasted 12 hours
- Day 3 Fasted 14 hours
- Day 4 Fasted 16 hours
- Day 5 Fasted 16 hours + only 500 to 800 calories
- Day 6 Fasted 10 hours
- Day 7 Fasted 10 hours
I tried a few different times to start but it looks like the fast from 8PM to 1PM (16 hours) is the best for me. I do feel better this week and notice my blood sugar is a little more controllable. The truth is I did not eat right this week and even binged a few days. I am going to work on eating the right food this week. I just wanted to see if I could even fast at all. And I did it. I know I have to tweak it, but it is something I will keep you updated about.
