Intermittent Fasting June 2009 Update

by Dave on June 15, 2009

Sorry for the lack up of updates over the last month , but work wise I have been focused on helping a new client with their online marketing campaign and sadly I didn’t find the time to  update.  I now have things set up, so can return to adding some blog posts on my progress. Rather like London buses, now you have waited for one for a while, 3 will come along in quick succession !.

Even though I have been very busy with work I continue to use Intermittent Fasting to reduce my weight. I have continued to weight in on a weekly basis, so here is a summary of the last 5 weeks.

Friday June 12th I weighed 84.5 Kilos or   186lbs ( 13st 4lb)

I was losing weight at the rate of about 1lb ( 0.5 kilos) per week through May, but as I entered June, I have hit my fist plateau. My last 2 weigh ins have been the same.

I expected a plateau at some point, but to be honest, I thought it would have come long before 5 months of continued weight loss.  So how do I feel about the plateau ?.

Well I simply look at the bigger picture, which is the last 5 months, not the last 2 weeks. In 5  months I have lost 45lbs, I have still not gained any weight, so I am fine with it. I know I am not overeating, but if I remain the same weight over the month of June, I will see what I can do to move past it. So far I am ahead of my target, so I am not too worried. I know I have not done anything different, so it is not the fact I have increased the calories I eat, but I am of course over 3 kilos lighter, and I am fitter, so I actually don’t need as many calories to move my body around as I did !.

    I have been reading alot about Intermittent Fasting and it sounds great. I lost 10 lbs lat last year, I don’t know how, but now that I think about it, I was only eating a mean a day. SO I am deciding to take this approach.

    My question for you is how often per week do you do the 24 hour fast? I am also trying to lose my last 10-15 pounds or so.

      Hi Leah,

      I would say if you only have 15 pounds to lose, 2 fasts per week should get you to your target easily. I started with 2 days per week ( Sundays evening and Thursday evening ) but , now after 6 months I have adapted my eating window to suit my daily lifestyle. This means I now fast between 24 and 22 hours on weekdays and eat what I want on a weekend. Again this is just what works for me, but I am flexible with it, It is not set in stone.

    Also, do you exercise? How regularly and how intensely?

    • Dave

      I don’t go to a gym any more, but I do bodyweight exercises 3 times per week, for around 20 minutes. I also take a break from my laptop when working and go for a walk, I do it because it relaxes me and helps me think, not because I want to burn calories. I use Intermittent Fasting to reduce my calories, and resistance training to preserve muscle.
