So, I keep track of calories (I'm sure all of you do).
In the 4 weeks of November, I had a calorie deficit of 4,600 calories.  REALLY?!? 28 days in 4 weeks, so that's a defict of about 165 calories A DAY.  How pathetic am I!?  Like, super pathetic if you ask me.

I think this settles that I am going to try intermittent fasting. Harlow suggested fasting an entire day--- but Harlow, if you stop eating before bed on Monday, don't eat all day Tuesday, then start eating Wednesday morning, that's at least 30 hours of fasting.  I think I read that you don't hit starvation mode until 46 hours or maybe 76 hours??  Well either way-- I will be doing a 24 hours fast on Tuesday.  Not sure about the specifics, but I'm doing it!

  1. I'm going to tell you from experience that fasting every other day won't help, unless you're still careful on those "eating days"... In college I would fast every other day, and I seriously GAINED weight. It put my metabolism lower so the food I did eat was saved. Please be careful with this, and good luck finding something that works for you!
