Here’s what happened when I Tried Intermittent Fasting + What I eat in a week

July 17, 2018 - 26 Comments

Recently I’ve been having low energy and gained 9, yes 9, pounds from all the good food I’ve eaten in my travels. I was so tired of feeling sluggish that I researched different diet techniques to help me feel better about what I’m eating. Through all my research on a plethora of diet techniques, I found the intermittent fasting diet. I decided to give it a try. Now before you say fasting is starving, I can assure you it is not. To be honest, I love food and could never starve myself to feel good. Fasting is a controlled way to eat healthy foods during certain periods of the day. This way when I don’t eat during other periods of the day, my body burns stored fat as energy to power me through the time I don’t eat. So for 8 hours a day I ate, ate, and ATE and then for the hours I couldn’t, I didn’t. Below you will see my entire experience recorded and will find out if this method of intermittent fasting worked for me.
