Another week of fasting, I’ve done 9 already and feel amazing 🙂 I’m not saying that it’s easy the fasting but it’s not as hard as you may think.  The secret is planning. If the food is ready, shopped for and worked into your normal routine then you are more likely to stick to it. Don’t plan on fasting when you know you will be eating out, or doing huge amounts of exercise, or will not be able to prepare.  Don’t try to make it up as you go along you will end up grazing and using calories on nothing much. Do check calories as some things are surprisingly calorific whilst others are actually quite low.  For example an apple can be between 70-90 calories but 1/4 of a galia melon is around 50, this can make a huge difference when you are limiting calories.

On non-fasting days I will be eating my current obsessions which are soft boiled eggs and soldiers for breakfast and crackerbread for lunch.  I tend to do this, eat the same thing for ages. I think you may remember my roasted veg couscous phase 😉
