So, I have decided to try Intermittent Fasting. I have tried this before but my brother has renewed my interest in it since he has hardly any fat to lose and he has lost 10 lbs in a week or two of trying it. After about 1 week of fasting, I have not had quite as much success but I have also cheated a little. Here is an overview of my first week.

Week 1:

Day 1: I started the day at 286.2. Fasted all day and had coffee with Splenda and fat-free creamer. Ate a ton of spaghetti with cheese and weighted 285.6 before bed.

Day 2: Woke up and weighted 284.1 Black Coffee, YUCK! Black coffee tastes horrible when you are not used to it. Ate spaghetti for dinner again but had two slices of garlic bread.

Day 3: Woke up and weighted 281.3 Coffee with bagged stevia from Wal-Mart. Taking the kids to Chic-fil-a for dinner as a treat. I had #9 with sugar-free lemonade, side salad with blue cheese and ranch, my waffle fries, and half of a wrap that my wife didn’t eat. I also got an ice-cream cone.

Day 4: Woke up and weighted 280.4. Coffee with Stevia. Cooked beans with carrots, mushrooms, steak cubes, and onion with beef stew seasoning. Had 3 standard sized bowls.

Day 5: Woke up and weighted 280.4 with no weight change since yesterday. The change I am going to make today is that I am going to only have one cup of coffee with stevia instead of 2 (Mainly because I already made it.) Also, I am going to try to have a salad or something with each of my meals. We will see how it goes.

Day 6: Woke up today and weighted 280.0. Parents came for a visit so I ate some KFC chicken, corn, and potatoes around 3 pm and another chicken breast at 7 pm. We will see if that messes me up on the diet. Ended up working late and ate a plate of spaghetti at about 2 am.

Day 7:  Didn’t weigh myself this morning. I had eaten quite a bit yesterday and I was up pretty late. So… I will weigh myself tomorrow morning when I have today’s fast completed. I had a coffee and a salad wrap for lunch.

I understand that in order to succeed I will need to strictly adhere to the diet and not cheat for it to work.

Thanks for taking the time and above all, just try to live your life without regret.
