Intermittent Fasting for 2 Months: My Journey (and Struggles!)

Two months down, and feeling energized! I'm not the fittest, but I wanted to make some healthy changes. Those love handles? Yeah, they were definitely a target, but weight loss wasn't my only motivator. Honestly, I just wanted to see if I could stick with something new and create a healthier lifestyle.

Let me tell you honestly, starting intermittent fasting (IF) was a leap of faith. Would I be able to keep it up? Looking back, I'm proud to say I did it, and it feels like something I can actually maintain for the long haul.

My Simple IF Rules:

  1. Lights out for food by 9:30 PM.
  2. Breakfast became a 1:30 PM party. Yep, a slightly delayed start to the eating window.

I upped my protein intake to 70-90 grams a day and went a little easier on the carbs.

Workout Woes :)

Working out has been a part of my routine for a year now, but timing became the new challenge. Evening gym sessions were regular for me, I made a switch to mornings (6-7:30 AM to be exact).

The first few weeks were brutal. Surrounded by tempting snacks at home? Major test of willpower. But my folks actually helped me stay on track. Guess a change of scenery does the body (and the mind) good!

The Unexpected Payoff

The scale might not have screamed "amazing results," but my body definitely noticed a difference. My energy levels soared, and I felt more active throughout the day. Focus? It became my new superpower, crushing work and studies with laser focus.

What's Next?

The future of IF is looking bright! I'm ready to take things to the next level. 16/8 feels easy peasy now, so why not try some 24-hour fasts? Once a week to start, with room to grow from there.

This journey has just begun, and I'll be back in another 2-3 months to share more insights. Until then, Ciao! 🌟🥂

[Note: Consistency means taking some well-deserved days off. It's about finding the balance!]
