In Part 1, I share what Intermittent Fasting is, how it’s changed the way I think about eating and my nutrition, why I chose to try it, and how it’s working for me.

Sorry, I was having technical difficulties, so I had to post this in two parts:

A friend of mine started doing intermittent fasting a few weeks ago. He claims it has worked very well for him. In those few weeks he has lost numerous pounds as well as gaining muscle (his main goal).

That’s great Ren!! I was skeptical at first since it goes against EVERYTHING I’ve learned about healthy eating…but it has been a real eye opener and I feel so much better! Thanks for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t tried this before but have been curious about it. I heard it can’t really be done long term. But I think it would be interesting to try for a month.

Thanks for your comment Sonja! I personally know someone who has followed IF for 15 years, so it’s definitely a lifestyle! I plan on doing this as a lifestyle too as I enjoy eating again and I feel so much better ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you give it a try! Come join our Facebook group too for some extra support and to answer any of your questions! We would love to have you.

I decided to try this and am currently on my second day. Was there an adjustment period for you? I am finding that I am SUPER hungry and have a light headache until a few hours after the fasting period is over. Before I started IF, I was eating every 3 hours with a decent size breakfast. I am willing to stick it out if I know that there is an adjustment period.

Yes, for sure Larissa!! There is definitely an adjustment period. What are you drinking while you’re fasting?

I am drinking water, water and more water. I don’t drink coffee or tea, because I don’t like either. I’m strictly a water girl, with the occasional juice thrown in. I’m now I’m day 3 and I noticed today that the minor headache was barely there and I felt less fuzzy brained. I’m hoping it keeps getting better.

Yes, I still do IF! I’m not using BCAA’s at the moment. However, if you would like to, I would make sure to get ones that aren’t loaded with fake sugars. I found one at ProteinCo which is Canadian company.
