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.
What’s listed below is what improved for me.
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!
