So I heard that really nice GP who has a book out at the moment and so talks alot on the radio talking on the radio yesterday; and he said there is evidence that when you eat is important. Apparently it’s been shown that if you keep your eating within a 12 Hour Window – say 8am to 8pm – it gives your body a rest and aids weight loss.
So I’m thinking I could add this to my alkaline diet and see if it makes any difference.
I have this thing I really don’t want to wake up hungry during the night, so I’m not one for having my last meal at 7pm; more like 9 or 10pm. The idea of not being able to eat after 8pm if I’m getting peckish panics me because I know I won’t be able to sleep.
So I decided to try missing breakfast and creating a ‘window’ from noon-to-9pm in which to eat. I know that’s only 9 hours, but I feel I can cope with that. Although I have to emphasise
I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE, NOT ONCE, NOT EVER, NOT EATEN BREAKFAST
so I really wasn’t sure how this would go. But I’m a game girl and committed to getting my body back, so I started doing it yesterday. And you know what? It was really okay.
I found the morning tolerable so long as I kept well hydrated; and after noon it felt rather as if I was feasting, because I was eating the same amount in a shorter space of time. So my meals were more indulgent, and for a binger like me that is very nice indeed.
So I woke up this morning, and eager to see how my experiment was going I weighed myself.
I’d lost 3lbs in a day.
