I started BSD last week 9/4/19. I’ve been keeping it 800 calories or less by using MyFitnessPal. Although Saturday, I cheated a bit and went to 2000 calories or so. I ate pork rinds and bacon. No refined carbs or sugars all day though.
In June I started 16:8 intermittent fasting. I’m 6’5″, 45 years old, and weighed 359 lbs at that point. Doing IF, I went down to 348lbs, but then plateaued through July and most of August. I then read about the BSD and the Newcastle study. Mosley’s book was a joy to read and inspiring.
This morning I weigh 328.4! I’ve not felt truly hungry once for the week. I definitely have cravings for chips, fries, and chocolate, but those seem to be fading a bit. This morning was the best I’ve felt in a long time. I’ve less aches and pains and my head is clearer and my body feels less sluggish.
I’m going to go another week and then reasses before I commit to the full 8 weeks, but so far, so good!
