…..and I feel
31 days of no wheat, no alcohol and on the 5:2 fasting diet. What is the result?
I have lost 5kg (11.02lbs)!
My body is definitely less bloated.
I have way more energy!!
I have cycled 230 miles in 2 continents.
The bonus is I have not had a hangover for 30 mornings (obviously discounting new years day).
But what have I learnt?
That I can go for a whole day on 2 apples plus an evening salad and not even notice. This is something a month a go that I thought would be impossible. I also thought that on the 5:2 fasting diet I would pig out the day after each fast. Looking back, at the beginning I did at least for the first two fasts (first week), but after that, my body felt so good the next morning I did not want to fill it up and feel lethargic. In fact the fasting diet has made me control portion size and only eat when I am actually hungry. Incredibly I am doing this with out even thinking about it. This is a real positive change for me. I feel I am getting to know my body for the first time and I am sure in a couple of months this will be even more apparent.
However the plan to masticate and not eating in front of the TV has not gone so well.
I am constructing a plan for February and masticating / TV dinners are going to be the focus.
Heres to completing the first month of 2014.
