Draglist's Journal, 11 Oct 14

Stayed on track with my calorie goals today. Loving the 16:8 fasting. First meal was at 2pm today and the last one ended right at 8pm. So easy to do and easy to stay satisfied. Happy with staying near my carb macros and sodium intake, too. Hoping to drop another pound or two by morning.

Lots of health benefits from 16:8 aside from weight loss.

Absolutely, Chris. I'm devoted to it now. I'm almost never hungry until right at the time I need to eat. And it's amazing that I can almost set a clock by it...

I am taking notes of your fast track - the scale was not a diaster considering I had an eating binge day yesterday- My exercise saved me to a certain degree - Also I was scraping old window film off my car and it was 90 degrees outside- my clothes were drenched from sweating so much I had to change them / Back on track today

Congrats, Pam! It all adds up. I got a nice 207.2 upon waking today. Will wait until after my 16:8 fast and a walk before recording fir today. Hit some stuff to move around in the house. That will help too!

With the fasting can you pick your times? Say eating between 11am till 7pm? 
12 Oct 14 by member: njashka8
Yes, absolutely. You pick the times that work best for you.

Nice job, really want to try the 16:8. Got to go over my meds & supplements to see if I can take without eating. Usually take them for breakfast, lunch & dinner. The only problem I see, is my BP meds which I take 1/2 dose twice a day. Hopefully will be off those meds in a couple of months.

I've started trying to do the 16:8 and the in 4 days I've taken off 3.8 lbs.

Hope it works out for you Chillie. I just had 'breakfast' at 1:30 and I did not even feel the hunger despite eating fewer than 1300 calories this week. Congrats on the loss, Instantcrazy! That is so great.

Thanks! Congrats on losing all of your fun month weight too!

Thank you! All part of the plan... the water weight is easy to lose. But first you have to realize what it is!

Chillie Willie, 16:8 is anti-inflammatory so it may help with your BP.

Thanks draglist will be trying this for a week!

Why /how is 16;8 anti-inflammatory?  
13 Oct 14 by member: Instantcrazy
According to James B. Johnson M.D. and Donald R. Laub Sr. M.D, authors of "The Alternate-Day Diet," intermittent fasting activates a gene called SIRT1. This reduces inflammation, lowers free radical stress, improves insulin resistance, and most important, causes fat loss by releasing fat cells from around the organs.

Good job Bill. Chris - I'm reading that book now thanks to your recommendations, have already been doing the fast. Once you get used it, it's really not a problem and the fuller feeling from eating your food in a smaller time window is a plus.

Great news, Chris. Thanks. I will check out that book, too. Totally agree with Jim on the ease of doing the fasting. Just had my first meal at 1:30 pm and didn't have any hunger pangs at all today. Did 1.5 hours of working out at the end of my fasting period to maximize the fat burn. Have a good day.

Good luck with it, Njashka8!

jmb3450, when I started, I used to feel hunger pangs, but those are largely gone. I like the fact that I don't feel deprived. It's just for one day - or for those doing the 16:8 version of intermittent fasting - 16 hours.

And most of those are spent in bed! Finish eating at 8pm and that lasts me through the night. First meal at noon. Super easy.
