Another Month, a Shorter Intermittent Fast

Last month, I started this three-month installment of intermittent fasting. I started out with only an eight hour window. For part two this month, it’s seven hours! What’s changed? A little bit here and there!

You can check out the benefits that have been attributed to intermittent fasting in the recap of part one. But basically, it helps with weight loss by limiting when you can eat.

As a reminder, I am not a medical health professional. But this is what I’ve found from personal interweb searches and experience. You may want to consult a physician if you have questions about this, your health, or trying it out.

fast7hr - Intermittent Fasting Part 2: 7 Hour Eating WindowStatus on Other Challenges

I’m drinking 2 to 3 liters of water, which especially helps in the off times that I can’t eat. I’m not using the bathroom nearly as much as I had to when I first did the gallon challenge.

I’ll have one soda every few days. Usually I immediately regret it. Hopefully I can work on those cravings!

And I’ll still put coconut oil in smoothies when I make them, but it’s too hot for tea right now!

    I love fasting too! I tend to do intermittent fasting in 8 hour window or sometimes do 24-36 hour fasts. Once a year I do 4 day dry fast at sun moon dance in Scotland, now that is liberating! Thanks for the post 🙏 feel free to check out my articles on the amazing benefits of fasting 😁

      Thanks Sharon! I will totally check out your fasting articles. I am curious about your results from the other types of fasting you’ve done!

    I’m really curious about this idea but I don’t think it would work well for me. I get all shaky and light headed if I don’t eat within certain intervals. You’ve had some fantastic results and it seems to be working really well for you – congrats!

      Thanks, Nicole! I am with you there, I felt like that when I started and I do NOT like it. This isn’t one of my preferred ways to lose weight, and I probably won’t continue after the challenge. My advice if you attempt it is to still have something if you are in the fasting window and are experiencing any fatigue or hunger pains. I’ll talk about it more in my final recap, but I will have something at 9pm if I’m feeling really hungry, the fasting for me is more of a guideline. You should definitely eat if you are legitimately hungry.
