Fasting Logs

Cruising  right a long.  Feeling good, no issues, no real cravings/urges.  Another note I should add.  I do all the shopping, cooking and feeding of the whole family.  Even fasting, I am not even tempted, even on pizza night.  I do tell my self, I will have it when I am done, but I am not craving to have it like I would have not fasting.  This is such a powerful tool.

How timely to find and join this fasting site just as I was looking for accountability/community for my extended fast tomorrow when the kids go back to school.

All summer my EFs have turned into daily IFs because I will make one of my kids a snack/lunch, etc and then decide to join them with a cheese stick or hard salami.  Then I get so annoyed with myself and just eat the rest of the day.  

It is SO hard for me to cook for my large family every day and smell the cooking food and then not eat it.  I am coming into this EF a little frustrated with myself that I have actually gained weight this summer even with no breakfast/lunch and IF'ing usually around 16:8 days.  Some 72 hour fasts, many 40 hour fasts.


So 9/5/2017 I will embark on my longest EF to date.  No end date scheduled yet.  I want to experience autophagy, this supposed euphoria, freedom from eating, etc.  I want my body to heal from my Hashimoto's and lose some BF in the process.

Hi, was at a friend's place today during my eating window. I didn't want to be the one suggesting lunch so we ended up with a rather late lunch and 23 hours of fast for me. 

I was surprised that I wasn't super hungry until that meal, seeing as I just started my period and usually I'm ravenous during my periods, ready to eat everything in the fridge. So that's good I guess.

I started the fast at 18:00 after a few dark chocolate squares, so now I'm about 2 and a half hours into the fast.

I think tomorrow I'll try to eat a bit more in my eating window. I have iron deficiency (I take iron supplements, part of why I'm not planning on extended fasting) and for obvious reasons it's worse during my period. So my aim is basically to try to not feel tired af.


I assume I'll eat tomorrow at 12:00 noon unless something weird happens, so that would be 18 hours of fast.

Background - About me

I'm 28 female, 1.73 (5'8), weight of the day was 69.3 but it was unusually low compared to the rest of the week so I'm suspicious. 

I started IF a week ago after 2 weeks of stress-binging horribly. I want to develop a healthier relationship with food and also lose weight. I feel better on IF but also nervous, like I might mess up any second now.

I'm not following a specific diet (keto\paleo\vegan, like many here). I do count calories.

I'm concerned about letting other people around me know about IF. Knowing my family and friends, they'll instantly assume I'm developing an eating disorder.


Background - About the fasts

Can I just say how weird it feels to detail my new attempted eating habit online? Like, who's gonna read this? Who cares? I'll get to it anyways.My method is a somewhat flexible 20:4 - my eating hours might change a bit depending on the day's schedule, but they're usually around noon. Rule of thumb when unexpected events happen is to always try to keep eating hours below 6 hours and fasting hours over 18 hours. So far this week all my eating windows were below 4 hours and my fasts were 19 hours and up.As I ease into fasting more, I plan to mix in some longer fasts - 24-48 hours perhaps. At no stage am I (currently) planning to do extended fasting.During my fasts I drink water, and once or twice during the fast I'll have tea or coffee (unsweetened of course...) or coke zero. I need the caffeine. 



Actual fasting log of the day

This whole background thing is just because this is the first log entry ok? Like, usually I guess I'll only be posting this. The day's work and such.Today I finished a 22 hours fast, had a 4 hours eating windows that ended just now (17:00 where I live), so now I'm starting the new fast until, at least, noon tomorrow; I'm saying "at least" because I don't know when I'll actually eat tomorrow since I'll be at a friends place, we'll wait and see. Social events usually throw me off schedule and I have 3 of these this week. I'll update tomorrow how I ended this current fast.
Cheers everyone and good luck.

New to IF and started on 8/22. First day, did 14:10, then 16:8, and now trying to stick to fasting for at least 17-18 hours. I need maximum results!


My female starting stats:

Height: 5'2"

Weight: 128lbs

Waist: 25.5-26.5" (from morning to night)


I'm really hoping to lose 8-10 lbs by the wedding. I want to fit my dress comfortably and I need to be at a solid 25" waist size to do so. 24" would be even better! I'm sticking to my exercise routine of burning at least 250-400 cals a day for 5 days a week (hot yoga, treadmill/stairmaster, light weights). I'm getting nervous that I won't make it :/ I was also calorie counting and trying to stay below 1400 cals (with goal 1100) a day. But now I'm thinking that I should stop driving myself crazy by counting since it's hard to fill up on 600+ calories per meal anyway.


Progress

After my first week of IF (I haven't broke one day of it!), I've noticed my face has slimmed down and I'm no longer bloated in the mornings. I'm coming off of a keto (going to Italy for honeymoon so I need to work carbs back in) so carbs have been bloating me up as of late. Now I'm thinking I need to stay low carb and just accept the major bloat I'll get when I consume carbs in Italy. So that's why my waist balloons a full inch by the evening and I don't want that.


One thing I am loving about IF, despite my thoughts that I need to stay low carb, is that it's no longer "I can't have that," which was really hard to stick to, and it's now "I can't have that NOW but I can have that later." So now the desire for the forbidden is no longer there. All I need to do is WAIT, which is much easier than completely cutting myself off of the foods I love. And it ends up that when it comes time to eat, I don't even want it anymore.

Deleted my previous post by accident >.>

So today is day 1 of my mostly water fast. Today's unlimited coffee day, and on day 2 it becomes water-only. I'm pro-enema while water fasting, and I'll be using these too as per need.

My aim is to go a minimum of 7 days, but ideally I'd like to hit that 40-60 day mark. Not going to stress is though, aiming for 7 days and then taking it on a day per day basis.

Goals: letting my body reset in the hopes it deals better with PCOS symptoms, weight loss, blood glucose and pressure need to go down into normal range. Hopefully, by the end of the fast I'll be able to drop the bp meds I'm on.

Things I'm taking: birth control pill, blood pressure meds, vitamin D. I'll be dropping the iron during the fast since it requires food for digestion.

Starting stats:
Weight - 147kg
Fasting glucose - 122
Blood pressure (I'm on meds) - 140/92
Heart rate - 90

I'll add measurements tomorrow.
