Intermittent Fasting Week 26

by Dave on June 26, 2009

Well I have reached the halfway point of the year using Intermittent Fasting for weight loss. I just have weighed in for the 26th week and  It seems that last weekends over indulgence has not done too much damage.

I remained the same weight, which considering I did not hold back last weekend, I am happy with.  I also think I am reaching a point where my body is changing more than the scales. The scales register no change today, but I have moved another notch down on my belt, and when I look in the mirror, there is no doubt I am leaner than a month ago, even though I have only lost about 1lb in the last 4 weeks. I don’t do measurements  or body fat every week,  but I will get them done at the end of the month.

Intermittent Fasting is only one way to lose body fat, but for me it works. I did want to say that no matter what method you use to control your weight, the weight loss does slow down.  Since my post on May 1st I have only lost 2 kilos, but  it is still a loss, and it is a loss that has been achieved without cutting out any of the foods or drinks that I enjoy.

If you are reading this and you have alot of weight to lose, please remember that you will see your weight loss slow down too, but you have to look at it from the point of view of your weight it is under control, you are not gaining, you are losing fat, all be it more slowly, but this is to be expected.

Intermittent Fasting is now part of my normal lifestyle, and it will remain so. I set a target to lose 56lbs. by the end of the year. I am only 11 lbs ( approx 5 kilos ) off that target, and I still have 26 weeks to do it. It may take as long to lose this last 5 kilos of body fat  as it did to lose the first 45lbs but I am prepared for that.

I still have holidays and some weekend breaks to come, so I even expect the odd week where I may gain some weight in the coming couple of months. Again the important thing to remember is the long term target. As long as the overal trend is downwards ,I will be happy. With only a small amount of weight left to lose, I am now looking at the trend over a month rather than by the week.

I am a retired dieter, and I have found a way to lose weight while still enjoying the foods I love, a few party weekends does not change it.

If you are new to Intermittent Fasting and  want to use I.F to lose or control your weight, then to start I suggest the book Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon. Reading about intermittent fasting in his book helped me understand the science behind Intermittent Fasting, and gave the grounding to go on and achieve the success I have had to date.
