emoticon @BECCABOO127 ~ Every little bit does help the body heal.

I'm really trying to figure out "metabolism"....
Should I eat if I'm not hungry?

Right now. Trying a few different things following last week's "mostly fast". Something "worked" because my weight loss has held, vs a sudden regain of what was lost!

Really focusing on quality foods. Protein is supposed to boost metabolism.

Made the decision that when the rains start in, I will add in some form of strength training to fill my 20 min. minimum of exercise. ~ Increased muscle is also supposed to increase metabolism.

Yes! I listen too! Don't want that monkey on my back.

12:12 is what I do in the times I would have normally fallen off fasting. 12:12 and lower carb keeps me on the righteous path.

I did fall off fasting last night though. emoticon

That cursed insomnia caused by body aches during the changing of the weather. I normally sleep really well.

I fell off my fast with an apple and peanut butter and some almonds, which isn't too bad.

I rarely have a non-fast day, these days. If I do eat earlier, it will still end up being a 12-12 day. If itís a day I donít track, I consider it a feast day, and get back to business the next day. I sure feel it if the carbs are higher than 50%, and I donít like it! I recognize the signs (hunger and a brain shift) that would have me start gazing, grazing and eating all the wrong foods (sweets and carbs). The warning signs are real! I listen!

My measurements definitely change while doing lower carb and daily fasting. People will think that I dropped a lot of weight when I haven't.

I think it decreases inflammation which then makes my prior big tummy go flat.

I eat normally two meals a day with one snack. Gluten free, mainly veggies and meat, some gluten free type carbs (a slice of bread on occasion), but I prefer to eat natural carbs, like a sweet potato or a piece of fruit. I have a lot of issues with digestion and find that unprocessed food works best for me.

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

P.S. I'm curious... have you taken measurements? My experience with fasting is that while the scale doesn't change much at all or quickly, inches and body composition do change, and sometimes quite dramatically.


Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

You're correct... Dr. Fung prescribes no particular way of eating' (his meal plans in his books aren't even particularly 'healthy' IMO). He doesn't care what people eat because he believes that fasting will offset any less than nutritious dietary choices because as hormones come into line you are less likely to want poor quality food. He also subscribes to a ketogenic approach to nutrition... he works closely with Andreas Einfeldt (dietdoctor.com).

I eat according to an anti-inflammatory ketogenic nutritional plan, so I let my macros and my own hunger levels provide the guidelines for how much I eat. Some days I eat a lot (more active) other days very little but with keto macros balanced... I average anywhere between 1700 and 2200 calories a day and will still lose.

I'm re-reading the Obesity Code and Dr. Fung's Fasting blogs - trying to see what he recommends for how much to eat on non-fasting days. He seems to say just eat until you're satiated but I was wondering how everyone else manages - Calorie restriction isn't advised so do you eat according to your BMR? Or some other guideline?
