Responses to my post yesterday on Intermittent Fasting is prompting this post today.
I am very new to this type of method for weight loss and as usual with me, I just plunged into it with a 16 hour window, without eating, almost 7 days a week.
And with yesterday’s post, I find out that many of my friends are already on it and if I guess right, they got in step by step, like a day in a week and progressing from there.
That’s worrying! And a few of the friends even suggested that I should progress that way.
Then I got on to Google to see how it is being discussed. Pretty good, I must say, with one Mayo Clinic expert even suggesting benefits including longevity and heart health.
But the suggestion remains, get in slow and progress. A clear stress factor for me.
Another warning is on binge eating during the eating window. Well, I am there, almost. But that I can control!
Clearly, a number of participants, including me are stressed out due to various reasons. Me for example being guilty of jumping in full throttle with 16 hours, 6 and 1/2 days a week.
The best way to destress is to have a platform to share experiences and suggestions. So my fellow participants, how about a fasting group for exchanging notes and for holding hands!
I am in.
