Intermittent fasting: My new goals
Tuesday, July 31, 2018
So HIIT routines are AMAZING workouts. I have gotten so much stronger and my endurance is way better than it used to be. I just can't seem to lose the fat overtop all that muscle! haha
I recently learned about intermittent fasting and got a better understanding of insulin and have started intermittent fasting where I eat only between 9 and 6 (with the exception of 1 or 2 lenient days per week) and am essentially fasting 15 hours. It has been one week since I started this and the first, most obvious improvement has been in my SLEEP. I actually get sleepy and calm and feel like sleeping at the appropriate time. I no longer stay up in front of my computer snacking until 1 or 2 in the morning. This is a big step.
I will have to track for several more weeks to see how it affects my weight. The key is to improve and regulate my metabolism. I highly recommend watching presentations by Jason Fung on Youtube if you are interested in learning about metabolic syndrome, the effects of insulin and the tenants of intermittent fasting.
Thanks for reading!! Hope everyone is having a great summer =)
