No simple force can take me away from the kitchen… I am at home almost all the time and I spend too much time in it. Oh well.
When I actually fast, I still need to cook almost the same… It usually helps with fasting, though, I need my food joy even then There is picking fruits too, maybe half of the year? That doesn’t always help with fasting but I usually can get away not doing it for 1-2 days. Today I don’t fast (well, some very basic IF probably will be there) but I don’t desire any food (that’s why I need a lot of time to have enough. I feel the need) so I need my daily food joy from preparing them, mostly. And coffee. I still cling to it very much but it’s fine for now.
I surely mentioned already a few times, weekends are harder for me. For some reason I may get hungry before noon. Too early, hopefully it will change now that I almost never am hungry at 4pm on weekdays so I often eat later. Lunch is earlier on weekends, I am not alone at home until 3pm (why it matters, I don’t know)… I tend to be more relaxed in the weekends (sorry if I wrote wrong, I researched it about 5 times lately, it’s complicated to me and I keep forgetting what is right in English. it’s too hot now to worry about it), food items, carbs and fast wise alike. It’s not decided, in the contrary, it just happens.
The most perfect day for (starting) a fast is Monday for me. After a potentially more calorie and carb rich weekend I am alone, my SO has leftover food and I had my fun and I desire something strict and simple. I rarely fast at this point but a modest OMAD has huge chances now.
