So its been about three months. I have my big meal at 11. To explain what I eat, I will write a typical day. First I may have scoops of fat free refried beans on low cal pita bread. Fried beans are the only beans I can tolerate but I have them a lot. In place of that I may have a tuna sandwhich with cheese on pita bread or skip it and have two eggs or two plain fat free Fage Yogurts with diet chocolate and Stevia. Or a cup of oatmeal with fruit. So Im up to 200-300 calories. It varies. After that it is common for me to have a tuna pie, which I love, 230 calories or a peanut butter sandwich on wheat low cal bread, about 300 calories because my peanut butter is low fat. 45 calories a teadpoon. I have more often. So we are at 500 to 600 by now for my one meal. Fun time. I buy low cal but delish ice cream and have about 200-250 calories of that with my sugar free chocolate. Or plain. Yummy! After that I always grab a 90 calorie sugar free treat bar. Most are delish. Try Special K 90 calorie bars. Ive been known to have two My coffee during my eating time is pure yum. I use regular whipping cream (a tad) for my cream, sugar free chocolate or vanilla extract, sometimes a little peanut butter ,(I know but I love peanut butter ) and Stevia. I love my coffee. I drink it very slowly. This brings me to around 1000-1200 calories, which is fine for somebody my size, and I am starting to get stuffed. I dont like feeling stuffed. I dont have any more calories for the rest of the day until 12 the next meal time and I am never hungry so I know its enough. I do drink black coffee with calorie free syrup, diet pop at limited times and herbal tea with Stevia. I love peppermeent best. I throw in veggies and fruit sometimes....dont like either that much but make myself eat some. Not much meat....i i love animals. I will eat meat but usually just on holidays. I do eat animal by products without guilt such as l eggs ,(love eggs). And dairy, yes. So I started out at a too heavy 138 pounds. This is bigger for somebody only a bit taller than a fifth grader. I am down to 122 which looks good on me and I dont want to be a stick. I read that being too thin when older has health risks like being too frail. The lowest I will let myself get is about 118, but I am fine at this weight. Intermittant fasting for me has been great. I can have one BIG meal and am not hungry afterward. I think not eating at night is a plus. Jmo though. Although I am picky about what I eat (a little) there are no restrictions with this diet. Some people go KETO but I dont like to eat a lot of meat. I do eat healthy fats without fear. I will fit comfortably into my Mother of the Bride dress that I picked out. That was my initial purpose for dieting...I was not that motivated for a while although I didnt like being bigger than I am now. Just checking in for anyine interested in intermittant fasting. I may add I am pretty active but not a crazed exerciser. Love and light!!!
