Intermittent Fasting Week 12

by Dave on March 26, 2009

It is exactly 12 weeks today since I first started using Intermittent Fasting to reduce my weight. This week I lost 1 kilo ( just over 2lbs) . I now weigh 90 Kilos, or 198.4 lbs, In only 12 weeks I have broken the 200lb mark, I have lost 15 kilos or 31lbs something I did not expect to do for another 4 weeks.

The fat loss from using Intermittent Fasting has surprised me.Remember, at no time during the last 12 weeks have I not eaten what I wanted to eat, no food is off limits. Notice I say ” fat loss ” because the weight I have lost is body fat, not muscle mass. Our focus is to burn body fat for weight loss, not to lose muscle mass.The more body fat you have, the less likely you are to lose muscle, so it is possible I will lose a small amount of muscle as I get leaner.I have,and continue to use body weight exercises to maintain muscle so I am not concerned in this area. I have noticed over the last month, my body shape changing, even though the weight loss has been slower during this period, the physical changes have been much more noticeable. I will have my body fat percentage taken at the end of the month at the same time as having my body measurements done. I did take photos at the start of this year, and also after 6 weeks, so there will be some photo evidence too.  I have decided that this first 12 weeks will be called stage 1 of flexible fasting programme. Once I decided to become a retired dieter, I had to find a way to control my weight without feeling I was restricted, Intermittent Fasting has allowed me to do that. Depending on how much weight you want to lose, you can  work intermittent fasting around your own lifestyle to ensure get the results you want.  At the start of this journey I made a target of losing  4 stone/ 56lbs, or 25 kilos. From my starting weight of 105 kilos, this would mean I will be around 80 kilos, so I have 10 kilos to go, however, over the next 12 weeks I will use body fat, waist measurements, and how my clothes fit, rather than just what the scales say.

Over the next 12 weeks I will document more about the type of exercise I am doing, trust me it is not much !, I am not one for the treadmills, though I do like to get outdoors and walk .

So my original target was to lose the weight over a period of 12 months, based on steady weight loss of  one or two pounds per week. I now feel even at a fat loss of one pound per week I will manage this by September at the latest. So my goal is now to be in shape by the time I turn 45 on Tuesday September 8th 2009 .

So the highlights of the last 12 weeks of  using Intermittent Fasting For Weight Loss :

I have consistently lost weight every single week for 12 weeks, no plateau, no weight gains, just pure fat loss every week.

I have more energy, no tiredness in the afternoons, when using Intermittent Fasting.

I have noticed a significant improvement with my Asthma  symptoms.

Unlike a diet, Flexible Fasting fits around my lifestyle, I don’t fit my life around Intermittent Fasting.

Tomorrow I will post a typical fasting day for me.
