I have been doing 16:8 for about one month now. I did my first 24 hour fast yesterday!
I had dinner the night before at 8 and didn’t eat again until 8pm last night. I had chicken wings, mixed salad, some cheese and salami for dinner. I had some cravings and thoughts of eating during the day however I just had green tea, coffee and water through out the day. I didn’t feel intense hunger or anything. I was really energetic at my usual bed time though so slept slightly later than normal and woke up early today. But I didn’t feel too tired when I woke up.
I was going to do another OMAD day however by lunchtime today I just felt super hungry. I didn’t prepare anything to eat so ended up doing the total opposite of what I should’ve done which is to push through or eat something keto friendly. I was near a food court and ended up getting some noodles.
Now feeling super bloated and defeated…
Could it be just psychological that I felt more hungry today? Or my dinner last night didn’t have enough fat to sustain me? I was really stuffed after dinner last night though and the total calories came to only around 800.
Will keeping trying OMAD and hopefully habits can be changed!
