What’s that about intermittent fasting?

So I decided to try intermittent fasting. I was going to try to psych myself up for it, but last week, I had stopped eating around 8pm on Tuesday night, and then I just didn't eat until 12:30pm the next day. I thought to myself, well, it's as good a time as any. I just...went with it.

I'm fasting for sixteen hours a day, with an eight hour eating window. For the most part, it's not bad. I wake up, take my meds, drink my coffee, and I'm good until it's time to eat. But ultimately, sometimes, I don't even want to eat when my eating window starts.

Being at home, I should be able to prep my food and have it ready to eat by the time my fasting window closes. Unfortunately, I have not been organized enough for that. I haven't quite gotten the hang of the 'right' foods to break my fast with. But I'm getting there. At least I'm eating enough to sustain myself through the fast. I'm definitely getting protein, and carbs (in the form of breads and grains). I need more vegetables. I will eat a good chopped salad.

But I am learning. And hope to continue to share the journey with you.
