Other people from PopFnordette's log

So I was seeing friends now during my eating window and I told one of them about IF. I consider her pretty open minded to these kind of things but her reaction was ... negative, to say the least. Says that for all she knows (she's got an Msc in biology, now doing a Phd) that's a sure way to stress the body and screw your metabolism and sounds wacky. 

I really tried to explain to her how much better fasting feels but I felt pretty discouraged by her reaction. It sucks feeling like I'm doing something wrong and that it better be kept a secret.

How do you handle other people?


Also, totally junk eating window. I broke the fast nicely at home with chicken breast and a piece of toast with peanut butter, but when out with my friends I had all the poster-children of bad eating - cheeseburger, cocktails, cheesecake. Great.

I am kind of down now.

This could have gone better.

I agree it is SO hard to talk to other people about it. I had to do my research for weeks before I could attempt an educated discussion with my husband. Once I got him squared away I made the mistake of discussing with my mom, never again! Some people need to have both an open mind and cognition skills both turned way up at the same time to before they can hear it. I feel if I could be more of a success story (say after a couple EFs hopefully) then people might be more open to the idea.I agree it is SO hard to talk to other people about it.

I guess it's best to just not talk about it :/
