Intermittent Fasting

Ripped from my blog post “Weight Log: 10 - 125 days of Intermittent fasting” Let us start with the basics, what the heck is intermittent fasting? Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. In this respect, it’s not a diet in the conventional sense but more accurately described as an eating pattern.

Weight Log: 14 - Some form of permanently exhausted pigeon

Latest recorded weight: 178.5 kg - 393.5 lb - 28 stone and 1.5 lb - BMI: 55.1 A couples of days late. As the title suggests, this post is a few days late. I feel like some form of permanently exhausted pigeon right now and its really messing me up. On top of being exhausted in general, I’ve had to cut down my intermittent fasting from 18 hours to 17 hours as I was starting to feel dizzy deep into fasting.


Weight Log: 13 - Just another weight update

Latest recorded weight: 177.5 kg - 391.3 lb - 27 stone and 13.3 lb - BMI: 54.8 No real update this time. Just want to say one thing, Happy Birthday Dad. You should have turned 61 today but you will be forever 59. Miss you. I’ll be having a proper Redington drink in honour later today. Normal update on 15th September.


Weight Log: 12 - Burnout

Latest recorded weight: 179.5 kg - 395.7 lb - 28 stone and 3.7 lb - BMI: 55.4 Bad eating, bad gains. Last 2 weeks have been rough. Work/life balance for me has been thrown off and its been so stressful. For about a week my body was physically burnt out to the point I could not do more than half a gym session without feeling dizzy. Having no time to even compose myself has left me so mentally wreaked.


Weight Log: 11 - Feel Good Inc.

Latest recorded weight: 176.5 kg - 389.1 lb - 27 stone and 11.1 lb - BMI: 54.5 Continued Progress. It’s official, this is the lightest I’ve been since around October 2019. I’m eating better, feeling better and exercise has become just a part of my weekly routine. In the past I’ve hovered and plateaued around this weight so while I am relishing the in the continued weight progress, I need to not let things slip.
