i am inspired to try 2 days per week, skipping breakfast and lunch. For some reason i find those the easiest to miss.
Quite honestly, intermittent fasting is not that hard once you make the commitment and more importantly break the habit of eating for convenience.
I personally have one day off a week (treat day) from my 5pm to 9am fasting and if I have had a good training week then I may even indulge in two days from fasting but never more than that.
“Sign on the dotted line and give it a go.”
After the first week you will find it much easier.
The longer you stick at it the easier it gets..
I rearrange my “treat” day or days to coincide with social events but Xmas and the Festive Season is a lot harder..
But “What The” It only happens once a year and I have posted before about enjoying the Now Time and the importance of Life’s Balance.
