I had a rather succesful challenge, so let's keep the pace going.

Just a heads up, I probably won't be very active. This means I probably won't be visting other people's threads. I will have a hard time to keep updating my own I think.


Background info

Spoiler

 

I live together with my BF and two cats in an apartment.
I have autism and hypermobility and they both influence what I can and can't do.

 

My food mainly revolves around intermittent fasting, though I am working on eating better too.

 

My exercise is primarily road cycling and some walking. I don’t strength train, because 1 I hate it and 2 road cycling is already strength training for me.

Thanks all :D

 

As I've been experimenting with eating just 2 meals it seems I can do well at home, but not at work.

So here's my game plan:

 

I will eat my first meal after a 14-16h fast. The aim for this is 11:00.

8 hours later I will finish my second meal at 19:00. This is based on the fact we usually finish dinner somewhere between 18:30 and 19:00.

However at work I have lunch at 12:30 with coworkers. 12:30 + 8 hours is 20:30.

So my idea is now to either replace meal 1 or lunch with a protein shake. This way I'm not "eating", but hopefully will keep full and content.

 

- I fast 14-16h a day (16h for at least 2 days)

- I work on eating 2 meals a day. A third meal will be a protein shake

 

I've also tracked my intake a little on a dutch site. Aside from not quite trusting the site (it's an official site though), I do think it's a good indication and it shows I'm not taking in too many calories. My goal is about 1800 a day. Seems I'm often below it?!

Just be careful with being below that 1800 calories too often. I was like that for awhile and I gained weight because I wasn't getting enough and mybody freaked out and decided to hold onto EVERYTHING just in case the world was ending.
