After window shopping in a quaint town nearby, a friend and I ate a buffet luncheon in a corner of a large bulk food store. I had greens & veggies from the salad bar with a little poppy seed dressing, a chicken breast (didn't eat the battered skin), and a small piece of apple pie.
I ate WHAT I wanted and ALL that I wanted. I like the 19-5 Intermittent Fast plan of eating. The 5 hour "window" in which I eat allows me a little flexibility. The "open/closed window" concept give me the inner strength to resist temptation outside the window somehow. I can't really explain its psychological value. Maybe SOMEday I will be able to verbalize it.
Meanwhile, I haven't lost a pound the last week or so. I'm expecting to see a significant loss in the coming week. I have no intention of changing my current habit.
