Starting a Diet: Adjusting to Intermittent Fasting

Physical Health

If ya’ll don’t already know… I hate diets. I always try too hard and go too extreme on myself. I try to quit things cold turkey and end up failing almost every diet I’ve tried. However, this summer I have really been trying to work on myself and improve my health. So on June 1st, I started my intermittent fasting diet.

I heard about this diet from my friend Alli. She said that it had been working for her so I thought I’d give it a try. There are many different variations to this diet, so honestly I may not be doing it right, but that’s okay. However, with so many other things, you have to adjust them to fit each person individually. So just cause one variation of the intermittent diet works for me, that doesn’t mean it will work for someone else.

For this diet I have chosen to eat between the hours of 10am – 7pm. I have chosen to do this for 6 days a week. When I first started, it was hard. I was so hungry. I would find myself thinking about food when I went to bed and be starving waiting until 10am to come around. After about a week I got use to it. In fact I started I to notice a difference. I wouldn’t say I lost any weight right away. However, I no longer ate late night snacks and therefore no longer woke up feeling bloated and gross in the mornings.

I have decided to continue this diet and see how it goes. 🙂
