Today is day 3 of the diet. I started off with “Intermittent Fasting”. I’ve done my research and I figured this would be a very good first step. I will be sticking to the 16/8 method which is to keep my eating term within an 8-hour bracket. So I could eat between 12 noon to 8 pm.
By the way, here is a photo of me before the diet. This was taken about 2 months ago, my weight was actually lower here than when I started 3 days ago.

Sounds relatively easy, but as for day 1 to day 3… it wasn’t as easy as I thought. I was used to having heavy breakfasts, or at least a sandwich before work. I am also addicted to coffee with sugar, but the deal is that I cut out sugar during the 16-hour starving term. Also, It would probably be a good idea to cut down on my sugar even when I’m in my 8-hour eating term. So all I had to do for the fist step was skip breakfast.
I was dying of starvation at work. For some reason time slowed down to the millisecond, and I was getting very cranky. The wind touching my face annoyed the sh*t out of me. Although, I haven’t noticed any drop in energy levels whatsoever for the past three days.
I’ll try to start taking photos of what I ate, and since for a little period of time I will be eating what I normally ate, I imagine the photos will be super sexy.
