My new fasting regime is 2 - 18 hour fasts on Mondays and Thursdays. The science and reasons why are best explained in these articles/book.
Basically I stop eating before 8 p.m. Sunday night and not eat again until 2 p.m. Monday. I'll do the same Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. My plan on Monday's and Thursday's is a protein/fat lunch and a "normal" dinner. No snacks or sugar or processed foods. The rest of the week, I drink bullet proof coffee for my breakfast (strong organic coffee with 1 tbsp grassfed butter and 1 tbsp Brain Octane). It's actually quite good; not at all greasy and tastes to me like a latte. I bought a foamer which emulsifies the mixture so it looks like a latte too. We'll see if changing things up will help with the weight loss. It definitely keeps me full until lunch.
I'm out of patience with my apathy these last 3 months. I want to start seeing results. I had such an easy time losing weight 2012-2013. It sounds hokey, but I used hypnosis to take off 50+ lbs which basically eliminated my cravings/desire to eat. When my thyroid quit and I regained weight (seemingly overnight) I tried refreshers offered (and they weren't cheap), but it never "worked" for me again and here I am. I've been back to Weight Watchers, MFP, Whole30, Low Carb, meh... I've lost 12 pounds since October with about 34 lbs to go to get to a weight I feel comfortable.
I've logged all my food in MFP religiously since October so I know that I'm averaging 1600 calories/day overall and keeping pretty active averaging over 10,000 steps/day. I've basically maintained my weight since January. I hate to go back to calories, but I think regardless of what I eat; I'll need to cut calories (400?) and see if that works. My thyroid has been slightly up since September, but still within my normal range. My doctor feels I should shoot for 10% loss this year which is about 19 lbs. I'm OK with that. My doctor OK'd I-F and thinks some of the research advocating gluten free is also sound. I'm not eating bread, but I haven't been crazy about label reading... and gluten is everywhere. I'll do better.
I'm going to continue to weigh in only once a week. I don't want the number rule my life and it's frustrating to try or not try and see the same crappy results...
