Intermittent Fasting of the RAM
As I continue the Way of the Sub, it’s a new month and that means to try something new/different during my Results About Me journey … and this December I choose Intermittent Fasting.
What is intermittent fasting? According to Healthline, this growing popular trend on weight control is “an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting.”
This trend doesn’t necessarily delineate between what foods you should or shouldn’t eat during your “open season” feast time; however, one would think eating high-calorie items would defeat its overall purpose.
There are a number of different types of intermittent fasting methods. The most popular method of intermittent fasting is the 16:8 ratio. Simply, you dedicate 16 hours of not eating and consuming little-to-no calorie drinks. The other 8 hours is “consumed” with eating. This method is what I will add to my reservoir during the month of December … at the hours of 1pm – 9pm.
Now, I have to believe the trick is not to devour anything and every food item you see during that 8 hours of open eating. I will try to utilize what I have learned from previous nutrition efforts and eat the Freshly meals, fruits/vegetables, all while limiting the crap foods that exist.
The challenge is, however, that it’s Holiday time and that means goodies will surround me. Because I don’t want to go backwards with my journey, let this post seek out tips from you on how to enjoy the holidays without destroying my journey gains – thoughts?
