Today was the first day of Fasting. I had my omelette toast and green tea before leaving for work. Throughout the day all I had was 2L of water (with calorie free flavoring) and 4 cups of green tea. I felt hungry around 10:30, the time I normally have a morning snack, and then again around 14:30. Each time I was able to distract myself and wasn't very bothered by it.
At no point during the day did I feel faint, dizzy or head-achy, all side effects that I thought I would have to deal with. I did however feel EXTREMELY tired. I'm not sure if I'm just tired or if it is an effect of the low calorie intake. I yawned my way through the afternoon but have perked up since getting home.
My salad for diner was huge and very filling:
And even now, 2 hours later, I still don't feel hungry. Weird......
I weighed in this morning at 206.5 lbs and my waist measured at 42 inches. I don't have a timeline in mind for how long I want to do this. Once I see how sustainable the 2 days of fasting is, I'll have a better idea of my long term plan.
Sorry if this is a repeat of FB posts... just trying to get my thoughts down on this process.
