A wonderful and hopefully rainy good morning at a Monday. With us nature finally breathes a sigh of relief, it is fresh and raining really well.
I, on the other hand, have to put on my pants and hold my breath, otherwise they just won’t close.
So I put myself on the scale and fell down backwards… because it shows – from March until now – over 6kg more.
On the one hand this is related to the big operation, after that I couldn’t do anything for my body for a long time, but I took the „doing nothing“ too literally.
Because there is still a big operation to be done, I don’t have much time to get the 6 kg off again and because physical training doesn’t work so well anymore, I start my old hobby, interval fasting.
I start yesterday with 68,2 kg on 1,62m.
And yeah, that’s too much purely optical, because I have really fine bones and it also looks just wrong optically.
Since I will not count calories, which I do not consider necessary with the small sum of kg, which I would like to get rid of, and I also do not want to calculate a BMI, because it seems nonsense to me, I leave in principle also the calculation of basic and achievement conversion away and try to nourish myself sensibly.
However, it may be that I inform myself about it again. How do you handle that?
WHAT is interval fasting?
Simple interval fasting does not mean anything else (sounds simple, but requires real willpower, discipline and endurance – not necessarily my specialty)
means „nothing more“ than to choose a period of time, which should be at least 14 hours, preferably longer, in which you do NOT eat anything.
Nothing at all! My preferred time is from 19:00 to 11:00.
But it’s not easy in the evening, if you have younger children like me, who often eat dinner at 7 pm. There one must look exactly at the clock that one does not eat too far into the Lent, that one regrets on the next day often.
So there are two phases – the fasting phase and the eating phase.
In the fasting phase, we eat, as already mentioned GAR NOTHING and remember that milk is a food, which we also do not eat! So during the fasting phase, coffee means to eat black and sugar-free or, for example, carbohydrate-free almond drink.
During the fasting phase we drink unsweetened tea, and I take the tea I like. Hardcore fasters also have limitations here.
Or sufficient water. I prefer sparkling water here as well. I’m incorrigible.
In principle, we can really eat anything we want during the eating phase. But since we often want to lose weight and get fitter, it is advisable not to do this.
Take the start with interval fasting as an opportunity to rethink your diet in general!
