Too Much Guac This Summer?
Who can say they leaned out this Summer?
Well, don’t hate me, but I can say that.
Well, I ate all the guacamole I wanted to.
I also enjoyed the accompanying margaritas and I even had my fair share of Nancy’s homemade ice cream.
How the heck did I do this? Intermittent Fasting. I could write a book on all the science I read and experts I listened to on podcasts, but instead I’ll send you to my 2 resources: Delay Don’t Deny by Gin Stephens and The Complete Guide to Intermittent Fasting by Jason Fung. Takeaways from doing this since March:
The scale is a crappy measure for success. Measurements are better. (I lost 9 lbs but 11% body fat)
Your body can go weeks without food so going 20 hours will not even come close to killing you. In fact, it will empower you!
Mental clarity in a fasted state is through the roof.
I eat great food and what I want (within reason), but just toward the end of the day. Quality over quantity!
It is very KonMari! No food to pack or worry about all day. Just a late PM snack (if that) and an awesome dinner.
Note: Read the science before you call it a starvation diet. Nobody is sending me to a clinic, I have lots of normal fat and muscle on my body. :-)
