I love capris with  a loose top in hot weather. 

This top is actually looser than it appears, the wind was nice for the heat of 92 degrees, but of course with light weight fabric changed it’s appearance.

In cleaning out my closet, I happened upon these capris ,

which did not fit me last Summer, but I tried them on and alas with 

my recent weight loss, they did and were not even tight, lol 

I love using a handbag or shoes to pop another color into an outfit,

hence the choice for my yellow one.  

I thought I would share my weight loss journey with Intermittent Fasting today! 

The most important thing to note about fasting is that it is not about deprivation, you must get in your calories during the eating window.  

I chose the 16: 8 version where you fast for 16 and eat for 8, I also extend it , by mixing it up daily sometimes fasting for 16-19 hours and adjusting the eating window to what equals 24 hours. My general fasting hours start at 6pm and eating at 10am. 

Lately I have changed it to 5pm and eating at 11am for 18 hours of fasting.   

Another important thing to note is that I drink more water than every before, 32 -48 ounces in the morning before eating and another 32-48 after dinner until a hour or so before bedtime.

This is a typical breakfast, notice the word break fast….

A yogurt/strawberry smoothie is great as some people have constipation with fasting.  

The Kiyani Sunrise is a supplement of super-foods for added nutritional benefits.

I alternate with a smoothie with these ingredients blended with a frozen banana.

I typically eat only two meals a day, but some days I add 

in apple, because I figure the added fiber is good and that whole

an apple a day comes to mind.

This is one dinner I had last week of chicken with mushrooms, onions,

artichoke hearts , diced can tomatoes, cooked with Italian Seasoning 

and topped with Feta.

I had this last night and was worried it wouldn’t be enough to hold me for 16 hours

but I lasted for 17 ,lol.   It will actually last me 3 nights as my family doesn’t like

eggplant.  It brings back memories of my father who loved it and made it a lot. 

IF is by far the easiest method I have found and has the added benefit of curbing all my cravings in addition to a clarity of mind and increased energy.   

Losing 11 pounds in 5 weeks, along with a few inches of loss has been encouraging as well, but truth be told the other benefits make this a method I will make it to a lifestyle!

If you want more information on Intermittent Fasting, I suggest starting with 

This Video from Dr. Fung and he has many others too.  

There is also a Facebook Group called : Intermittent Fasting for Women
