The food there is so much better! And I came home without the cravings. I don't know how that happens!
I have been doing intermittent fasting...eating in a small window everyday, staying mostly low carb, but eating as much as I want within a 4 hour window. (That's my aim, anyway). I usually break-fast at about 1pm, sometimes not till 2 or 3, depending if I can keep myself busy. I don't eat after 5-7 pm. I have even gone 48 hours once, and 24 hours fasting a few times, because once I am keto adapted I am just not hungry.
I am seriously considering Dr Jason Fung's recommendation of a longer fast...3-5 days, as a way to re-set my immune system and lose more weight. I'm waiting to get his book. If it's not in at the library I will order one online.
I am feeling stronger and more capable. I have noticed my negative self-talk is less now. I actually think of myself of capable, strong, self-controlled, able, and positive. And not fat. It's too bad it took me 56 years to begin to believe in myself and make myself proud.
