Intermittent Fasting Journal – Week 14
In this episode, blogger and Daily Intermittent Faster, Donna Reish summarizes her fourteenth week on Daily IF, including her week of carb counting while IF (under 50 net carbs)–and the effect this had on her weight and her enjoyment. She explained how the carb counting took precedence over the control of the eating window–and how she would do that differently if she ever decided to count carbs more often. Then Donna explained the difference between low carb eating and keto eating–and why a person can seldom “sort of keto” with good results. In “Listener Lessons,” Donna dives into the three things factors to consider in determining what to eat in your eating window: a) food that gives you the nutrients you need; b) food that makes you feel good (i.e. no carb comas or brain fog); and c) food you enjoy. Daily IF can meet all of these criteria! Finally, she emphasizes the importance of following something that you can stay on!
