Hey Ladies 💖! Happy Humpday! Well that 👇🏽 is what I think of that 😝, intermittent fasting that is…
To be fair that is also what I think of being back in a sweater, what happened to the summer?! 😾
As promised, having now tried it out for myself, I'm back with a few more thoughts on intermittent fasting. I should just make clear though that these are my views 🙋🏽, based on my own personal experience. I know plenty of people (mainly guys it has to be said) who get on really well with intermittent fasting, they’ve managed to shed body fat while hanging on to muscle 💪🏼, which is notoriously difficult to do. So if this works for you, go for it, it's not for me though…😬
To recap, I tried the 16/8 ‘diet’, whereby I only ate during an 8 hour period, in any 24 hours. I didn’t restrict or change my calorie intake in any way, so I didn’t expect my weight to change – and I didn’t want it to.
So how did it go? Honestly, not so good. I was starving hungry, grumpy (hanger alert 👿) and lacking in energy. My lifts 🏋🏽♀️ were all down and I had a pounding headache by late morning 😩. My weight didn’t change, but I lost a small amount of muscle mass – the last thing I wanted to do. 👎🏼
So, all in all, I didn’t like it. Instead, I prefer to eat at regular intervals, and keep my blood sugar and energy levels more stable, which is exactly the advice I give to anyone looking to shed their ‘baby weight’. ⚖️
You should also think very carefully about intermittent fasting if you are trying to conceive 👶🏼, as there is research to suggest that it can have a negative impact on female fertility. 😕
And on that note, I’m off to have some breakfast, who’s with me?!
Have a great day ladies! ❤️😘
