Intermittent Fasting 18 months later

Intermittent Fasting 18 months later

Sometimes I’m amazed when I look at my stats to see which blogs are still popular getting consistent hits. Like this one on Intermittent Fasting two months later https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/08/31/intermittent-fasting-2-months-later/. This blog was written in August of 2018. However it wasn’t the popularity of the blog that struck me it was the date I wrote the blog because I STILL EAT THIS WAY!!!! Wow that’s along time and this blog was written two months later. I actually started eating the intermittent…

The weight of MSi

The weight of MSi

I feel a little down since my neurologist appointment the other day. I haven’t shaken it off. I’m not down about having MS, I’m down about MS causing me to gain weight. Between the medicine, my age and lack of physical ability I can’t control my weight and I am very sad. I spent my entire life battling my weight. I was always up and down on the scale since I was a teenager. I’ve read about and tried every…

Intermittent fasting 5:2

Intermittent fasting 5:2

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting at a 16:8 schedule for over a year now. What does that mean? It means I eat between in an 8 hour time frame and fast for a 16 hour time frame. For me I ate between the hours of 11-7. The rest of the time I ate nothing and consumed only water. I finished the book the obesity code The Obesity Code this weekend. I must say I learned something new about dieting from…

The Obesity Code

The Obesity Code

After my upsetting week last week following weight watchers I choose to see my weight differently. I asked the universe for help. I immediately got to my life coach but then I got an email from my cousin. It was actually her second email regarding a book called . My cousin’s first email was explaining about the book before she knew I was struggling. The second email was following my blog post where she was more insistent that I read…

My diet confession

My diet confession

I never admitted this to anyone until the other day when I told my Noom coach and my life coach. I am sure people suspected and some saw evidence. I am and have always been a closet binge eater. I do it at periodic times. I go through phases. I’ve even learned how to maintain my weight or even to lose weight while doing it. I can remember all the way back to when I was 10 years old buying…

Back to Forks over Knives, plant based eating

Back to Forks over Knives, plant based eating

I tried Keto for a few months and it did work for me at first. I did take off weight but eating like that wasn’t something I could do on a long term basis. As I got sick of the food, I started eating bad. I just don’t like cheese and butter all that much after not eating it for over a year. At first it was good like a new treat but that wore off quickly. I did like…

Still intermittent fasting 7 months later

Still intermittent fasting 7 months later

I am still doing this all these months later. I now eat between the hours of 11-7. I also don’t usually drink my coffee until 11 as well. The truth is I haven’t lost weight from this but I haven’t gained weight either. I have to agree with the doctors that losing weight when you lose mobility is very difficult. I sit most of the time so I don’t burn as many calories as the average person. I do try…

From Keto back to Vegan

From Keto back to Vegan

I am finishing up the meat in my house and going back to a more plant based vegan diet. I switched to Keto to change things up and it did. I lost the most of the 10lbs I gained over the last year but I don’t like really eating this way. I miss my fruits and veggies. I miss my soups. I hate eating the cheese and I hate the butter. It was good at first but now I’m just…

Intermittent fasting 2 months later

So I’m still doing intermittent fasting. In case you don’t know, this site offers a great beginners guide to fasting https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/intermittent-fasting-guide#section3. For me I follow a 16:8 cycle. I eat between the hours of 12-8 and fast the other hours. This is the cycle that works best for me and keeps me from noshing at night. My first post about this kind of eating was done on June 2 https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/06/02/its-not-the-grapes-intermittent-fasting-next/I am surprised it’s been two months already. This is what…
