ALTERNATE DAY FASTING – WEEKS 3 & 4

I’ve combined weeks 3 & 4, mostly because I was too busy last week to set aside the time to really write about the fasting experience. But the other reason was because I actually went up in weight on week 3. Mother nature played a role in that and the change in workload (re-deployment) I missed two workouts. But the overall 4 week total was acceptable, read on to find out the pros and cons, as they relate to my experience with alternate day fasting. Also, I’ll show you how I made these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites you see here.

ALTERNATE DAY FASTING – Week 2

This week was not the biggest change that I’ve seen, especially given that I mostly fasted for two days. Mostly. That my friends is the kicker.

Not the least of which, how deflating it can be to weigh yourself daily. After a fasting day, the scale “loves” me but after an eat day, not so much. But the overall results are great! Plus I have my partner in crime, my son Sebastien, on this journey with me!

alternate day fasting – our experience

Who knew that one of the benefits of fasting, especially Alternate Day fasting, would be Kitchen Freedom. What is Kitchen Freedom you ask? Exactly what it says, freedom from the kitchen. I’ll get into that and more as I take you through our (yes, our) experience with this type of fasting. Don’t worry, there is still a food component to this post, I’ve been on a quest to find some sort of Keto friendly toffee treat and I’ve got a couple of good recipes to share.
