|The window in our dining area...|
I haven't officially identified my "program" here, but perhaps it's time to unveil it. I'm still learning the ins and outs, rationale and science behind Intermittent Fasting (or Feeding, as some call it). There are several variations of Intermittent Fasting, but the one I'm following involves about 19 hours withOUT food and a window of 5 hours each day during which I eat.
It's the "window" concept that works for me. I usually "open my window" around 1:30 when husband and I eat our main meal. If I find myself still hungry at 4:30 or 5:00, I have a snack. Then the window closes until the next day.
Really, I've not been hungry. It's been mentally easier for me than some "diets". And I have dropped a few pounds already! Some people have made a lifetime of eating this way. I'm not sure how long I'll continue it after I reach my goal. For right now, I'm living well and learning much.
