Contennsa !!! and Intermittent Fasting!

Colin has a new name for me, “Contennsa”.  Wow the countdown is on and today was off the charts.  I never have headaches and I had one today.  Tying to get last minute invoices out and collecting within seven days 8-O.  Colin has more jobs than I can count to get done in the next seven days all based on weather. Only the weather Gods know what is coming up.  I never got one thing crossed off my to do list today due to all the urgent last minute ‘deal with this now ‘ issues.

Yesterday was a one year anniversary for me.  I started a 12 day Wild Rose detox cleanse on September 11, 2017.  Once those 12 days were up I was feeling much healthier and did not want to stop the healthier eating style.  Just at the end of the 12 days I read either a FB post or a blog post from Nancy who has successfully recovered from cancer.  She is very devoted to living a natural lifestyle including eating properly.  I trust Nancy totally and when she mentioned intermittent fasting, my ears perked up.  She said that a side effect was losing weight without trying.  Okay, that sounded great to me.

So exactly one year later without trying, I have lost 21.6 pounds.  Than means no exercise at all and eating what I wanted including indulging in a few glasses of wine on a daily basis.  While in Europe I ate a lot of carbs mostly because our meals consisted of pizza or pasta.  I did however walk a lot there and I came home a few pounds lighter.  I did stay with the intermittent fasting as best I could while in Europe, at least 12 hours fasting on a daily basis.

Sadly at the moment my time is limited, so I ask you to click here to read about intermittent fasting.  I just want to clarify that I am not following the keto diet, only the fasting part.  Of course I do try to limit my carbs ( and sweets which I never usually eat anyway ) but I do have either some potato or a mix of rice and quinoa with dinner as well as wine on a daily basis.  I have chosen, because of what works for my lifestyle, to only eat between 2PM and 10PM.  I fast the other 16 hours.  You can chose to fast only 12 hours per day or only fast 36 hours per week, there are many many combinations of fasting.  I figured out what worked for me.

I am very proud to have lost this weight without having to pay to go to Weight Watchers every week and count every bite or sip.  I have finally found after many many years something that works for me.  Intermittent fasting has also helped many people with diabetes and other medical issues.

This is a link to a Q & A re the program.  Just remember as you read it that you don’t have to follow the keto diet.

    For me just healthier eating, smaller portions, large salads, less carbs and walking 3-5 miles a day, lost 50 lbs in a year and feel like a new person.
    Everyone has their own routine that works for them glad you found yours.
