Ellen, sugar is big business. I really liked the movie Fed Up. There is also the movie Food Inc that really goes into the subject of the business of food and how they are doing what is most profitable not what is best for us.House Cat, thanks for posting that. I had read something in passing about the brains looking similar. Unreal how the majority of mice chose sugar over coke.And even more unreal that the powers that be seem to want to put it in everything, even where it has absolutely no business at all...
Oh, I know. It's just unreal that they not only do it, but get away with it. For now anyway. And that "big business" leads to another big business. Big Pharma. Because all that sugar ends up making a lot of people fat and sick. It's a well known fact that sugar feeds Cancer.... I will check out the documentary mentions. Can't say I will watch all of them though, as the whole thing makes me sick, and angry.Ellen, sugar is big business. I really liked the movie Fed Up.

There ya go! That's really good at a first attempt T. Just keep trying. And, if you can cut out most junk (floury/sugary) products, and incorporate more protein and fat, you will be satiated for much longer periods! Either putting them in your salad or just as a meal.I was able to eat all my meals in 8.5 hours. I'm hungry! I admit it wasn't completely clean eating but I did have a salad for both lunch and dinner.
Absolutely. I don't think you should ever miss that if you don't have to. Just do the best you can.Thanks for your encouragement Ellen. Tomorrow will be the real test. It will be much harder at work. I'm used to eating breakfast at 7. Because I do direct patient care, I won't be able to eat until 10:45 or so. Uggg. Skipping dinner is not really an option because of my daughter. I think family dinners are really important but I have been trying to cut carbs out after lunch.
I feel your pain! I'm now at now at 5 weeks and I've lost one. I hope that makes you feel better, truly. However, I have read so much about IF, and there ARE people who don't see the scale go down, but DO see dress sizes go down. So don't get too hung up on the numbers, though I know that's hard to do!I've done 2 weeks of 16-8 with no eating after 6pm during work week. Weekends are more relaxed as we usually have friends over for dinner. As I expected, it's pretty easy for me to stick to this plan but I do go to bed hungry.
The biggest change so far is much less bloating by the end of the day and my pants fit better around the waist so I'm pretty happy with that. I weighed myself today and lost 2 pounds. Was hoping for more. I plan to continue for now and work up to full day fast.
I ate OMAD starting day 3 on the fast at the beginning of August. Started to do light workouts approx. 1.5 months into the process and I was down 20 lbs. at that point -- CDs at home -- Zumba, Hip Hop Abs etc -- 30-45 minutes/day. At the end of November I joined the gym and started light weights and added more cardio via the elliptical. All my workouts are fasted. My caloric intake per day varies between 400-600 and I eat every 20-22 hrs. I eat chicken, fish, eggs, veggies/salad, salami, cheese, multi-grain crackers, pumpkin & sunflower seeds, walnuts & almonds, avocado, and a small portion of carb usually in the form of sweet potato. Ezekial bread only. I go out with friends once per week and eat whatever I want as well as consume some alcohol.I wasn't sure if you had done the whole thing on OMAD and no working out. So if you could clarify that I would appreciate it.
