I have been trying to do fasting as I am close to 40 and hate my dad bod. I eat normally at 11am and one meal on 5pm. But I really struggle going to sleep hungry. A lot of time I break my fast late night. Sometimes I open a beer watching a movie late night after a long long day. I know it's my own weakness and lack of discipline.
That's a good idea. My day usually starts at 7:00. I'm at my desk around 8:00. It would be a good 5 hours without anythingWhy not push your meals back to 1pm and 7pm?
It's easier to fast in the mornings in my experience, since you can drink black coffee to curb your hunger.
Exercise also increases cortisol...One thing I would caution people about, is that while intermittent fasting does work for weight loss, it also increases cortisol.
Keep that in mind if you're already under stress, since there could be better approaches to lose weight.
Thanks, maybe that's the cause of my headaches. I don't trust supplements.Yeah, it might help cleaning up your diet a bit; you can also try getting in more electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium), either through food or supplements. I know low electrolytes can cause headaches on a low-carb/keto diet.
Wow, two to four weeks...Fast food can fuck you up though-these contain toxins which your body is eliminating while fasting and may cause headache. If you are consuming fast foods that much, it'd take at least two to four weeks to eliminate the toxins, excess salt and sugar. Only then can you know if headaches will away while fasting.
