Intermittent Fasting is kicking ass

15 05 2012

This morning I weighed myself in at about 175 pounds.  I don’t weigh myself religiously, but here’s a few of the weights that I did measure (note, I stopped doing GOMAD on 4-11-12):

4-10-12 182 pounds

4-25-12 180 pounds

5-2-12 178.5 pounds

5-15-12 175 pounds

In other words, in the past 5 weeks I’ve lost 7 pounds!  Taking into account water weight, bloat, and measuring error, saying I lost 5 pounds in 5 weeks is fair, and that would be mean about 1 pound per week.  Doesn’t sound like much?  If you lost 1 pound per week for a year, you’d have lost 52 pounds!

I have been following an intermittent fasting diet since 5-6-12, just over a week.  It’s important to mention that my diet has been far less than perfect in the past week, due to birthdays and mother’s day.  Yet, despite eating plenty of trash food, I have continued to lose weight!

Obviously I would lose weight in the first few weeks after I stopped drinking a gallon of milk a day; however, I believe that my progress would have stalled by now if I had not started intermittent fasting.  I still have a bit of a gut, so the next few weeks will show if I can continue losing weight stay tuned!
