Intermittent Fasting Week 17

by Dave on May 1, 2009

Well , here we are at the start of a new month, and doing my weigh in today, things continue to go well. I was pleasantly surprised to see the scales showing less than I expected , so here are numbers.

86 Kilos
190 Llbs or 13 stone 8 lbs.

Since January 1st I have now lost 41lbs. my starting weight was 231lbs. or for you metric Europeans, 19 kilos!.

Four months of using Intermittent Fasting to lose weight and I continue to find it easy.

It goes without saying that I am feeling great, of course now people have noticed the weight loss, the funny thing is the looks I get when they ask how I did it, it goes something like this …

Well Wisher ” Dave what diet are you on ”

Dave ” I am not on a diet ”

W.W. ” but you have lost loads of weight, how did you do it ”

D.W. ” I started to eat less, and enjoy the foods I do eat ”

Of course if I mention fasting, they say something like ” but starving yourself is dangerous ” to be honest it just is not worth the effort, so I have found saying I just eat less is easier !.

As you are reading this blog, you obviously have an interest in fasting, so your different ;). To you I say intermittent fasting is the most effective way to either lose weight or control your weight there is. After 4 months of using I.F nobody is going to be able to tell me otherwise, the proof is in the 41lbs I no longer carry around, for those of you who try and tell me to go low carb, or zone, please, save it for a forum some place else, I am still a retired dieter and staying that way.

    Yea Dave! I’m so excited for you! You’ve definitely made a believer out of me. I started on April 15 and have now lost 15 pounds. After all the dozens of diets I’ve tried, this is finally something I can live with. The hunger isn’t bad at all… coffee stops it every time. Two things I’ve discovered… One, I actually enjoy the empty, light feeling. (Never thought I could say that.) And two, when I do eat, I fill up on much less food.

    I look forward to your updates. Keep ‘em coming!

    Happily a retired dieter too!
