I’m mainly sustaining myself on liquid during my fasts, and I have the odd bit of food too. I’m not bothered about counting 500 calories, but I’m definately limiting my calories and filling up with water / green tea. Here’s what I did:
Up to 2pm Sunday: Smoked Salmon on philly cheese on Chilli Rivita.
Up to 8pm Sunday: Water whilst I taught swimming 4pm – 8pm (lessons take my mind off it).
Up to 10pm Sunday: Green Tea and water.
8am Monday: Green Tea, Smoked Haddock, Light Yakult.
Cold Starbucks expresso on walk to work.
10am Monday: 200mls Fresh Pineapple Juice.
11am Monday: Oats, Greek Yoghurt, Blueberries, Pine Nuts.
12noon Monday: Handful of plain peanuts.
2pm Monday: I broke my fast with: Sweet Chilli Chicken Salad (very tasty after a fast!)
(Green Tea and water between 9am – 2pm Monday).
I find it easier if I’m busy and really easy if I just keep topping up on water and green tea. I think life shouldn’t be about limitations, so I have what I want, but aim to keep most of it liquid, water, green tea or small portions of healthy food.
