Morning everyone hope you got a good nights sleep? I am just in from my night shift and it was really good! I think I might be finally getting used to it😂😂
Kafin that is an excellent result!❤️ Don’t worry though as the police ones are a lot more sophisticated and if you haven’t drunk any alcohol then your reading would be 0😂😂. Even though I finished my fast on Monday evening I still got a 0.52 reading yesterday👍 So my fast has really kicked me into my fat burning. I also got very full very quickly last night. So maybe my stomach has shrunk too😂😂
So great to see so many positives on here already today. I am looking forward to my bed today!
Allie thank you for your tip on ginger as I seem to waste a lot and I hate doing that!😢
Strong curves I don’t want to take anything away from your PT but the world has not caught up with this way of eating yet and I am sure you will be able to still do your training and you will probably have more energy when you start burning fat rather than the limited energy from glucose or sugar or carb. Dr Fung explains it like having a wallet full of a certain amount of money. So we all have about £2000 in our wallet of easy and accessible calories/sugar/energy that we get from carbs and other foods, but when we go into fat burning we actually have an endless money pit we can use! So all that excess fat can be burned which will give us more stores to use and a lot more energy. Also with the PT saying this diet won’t work for you he could actually be slowing you down and with that you will have to have more sessions to get to where you want to be! (He has to make a living and with clients getting where they want to be sooner he could stand to lose money. 😂. When I had a personal trainer a few years ago he taught me about the Keto way! He also said if I was to going to have carbs(at the time I was only eating porridge as my carbs) and he told me to eat it in the evening as it would help make me sleepy and I would get a decent nights sleep. He explained that low carb, good protein and a lot of good fats would help with all the muscle repair. This diet wasn’t around then and Keto was not as popular as it is now. A slice of bread is almost 4 spoonfuls if sugar (I believe) once it has passed through our system and that is not good if you are eating bread more than once a day everyday! That’s one hell of a sugar intake!! There are runners in here and at first they were worried that not having that carb hit would effect their performance but people guided them to try other things and they have said it is better as they don’t seem to get a carb crash after. Articfoxes advice is good too. I know I am no expert but we have all proved on here that this way of eating works. Fasting is so good for us as it actually allows our growth hormone stay switched on for longer by keeping insulin at bay! Which in turn heals our muscles and helps with bone density too. So now that I have waffled on I would like to welcome you to the forum and wish you all the best on your journey. It is your body and there is no such thing as one size fits all, what works for one may not work for another! But you won’t know until you try it, you will soon know if it is not for you hun. Good luck Birdy💞🦜
