Fasting Day 54 -126.6

Yes, measuring out 1 scoop of protein powder, stirring 1/2 tsp of it into the glass of water that I'm drinking, really does alleviate any hunger or weakness throughout the day. At days end, I didn't require an entire scoop -- something about that slow but steady stream of amino acids I guess. I could easily down 3 or 4 shakes on my fasting day when I mix the entire scoop into a glass of water; but that seems to be just enough calories to thwart the depression alleviating effects of this diet for me. I like to feel happy even if I'm barely losing any weight right now.

1/2 scoop protein powder 43.5 calories

Glad to see someone doing a live blog on IF. Like you, I do it, but I don't talk about it. People freak out at the idea of a day without eating. I've been using IF for weight control for twenty years, ever since I noticed it was easier for me to go without eating than it was to control my appetite.

Good luck.

I know what you mean about people freaking out. Short of my immediate family and people I've met on the internet, nobody else is interested in hearing about it and they have lots of 'advice' to give.

20 Years using IF! I'm glad that the internet has created space for all of us to find each other. I know there are many, many, MANY people out there who are desperately in search of a solution to their weight problems. I was one of them and I am so happy to have found something that works for me.

Thank you for sharing!
