Giving Intermittent Fasting a go once again. I’ve been stressing too much on having several small portions a day of balanced meals, prepping all stuff, thinking about food all day long to not be able to satisfy my overeater cravings, bla bla bla bla… ending up on binging, overeating more often everytime.
Kowing myself, which I’m black or white and there’s where the balance meets, going back to IF feels great.
It’s hard to press the balance/control button 6 times per day everyday so imagining that everything started on monday by saturday or sunday I gave up on everything. Max, two weeks. Cheatmeals=cheatdays=cheatweeks… and picking up that wounded soul was hard boy!
Me thinks it’s easier, pressing the same button twice a day… when my breakfast and lunch time used to had place. Walking apart from people is the only thing I need to do right now cause they ask, they question, they assume and give opinions that I better don’t hear so I don’t end up questioning myself. For me is hard defending something when this something might change tomorrow… story of my life period. I became a social weirdo so lately I don’t argue or give my opinion cause it might change any moment.
I love the feeling of shoveling almost a zousand calories in a sitting… that’s satisfying for me!!
I like the fact that I can even cheat on “bad” foods If It Fits My Macros. Sometimes is hard to eat a zousand calories of nutritious food in one go. I love me some milk cereal or french toast to end up the day :)
Last time I tried this I didn’t stick to leangains “rules” and worked out every damn day, what means calorie surplus everyday or working out on calorie restriction which may lead to weakness. Changing the approach this time and working out 3 times, or 4 as max per week. Lower body twice a week (my weak point), upperbody 1 a week. Going back to heavy lifting, low reps, high weight, high sets.
Thanks MyFitnessPal for existing! … back to tracking food which I don’t like much.
