What an amazing week! We took a couple of days off and headed to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Our nephew flew in from St. Louis on Thursday so it was a weekend filled with family and food.
We went out for dinner Friday night for Taste of the Beach by the Outer Banks Restaurant Association.
We chose Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe as a recommendation from a awesome realtor. Food was amazing and service was outstanding! I had the Buffalo Shrimp as an appetizer and the Shrimp Fettuccine for my main course. Everything was fresh local seafood!
After eating out all weekend I truly thought the scale would rise. Jumping on the scale this morning I am down 1.6 lbs!
I am still doing the Fast Diet 2 days a week which seems to be working well. Additionally, I am keeping a written log of everything I consume in order to keep me accountable during the Fast Diet. Since we were out of town gym time has been lacking but I plan on getting back into the swing of things by the weekend.
I actually had the radio on in the car for once (no cartoons blaring) hearing about the Fast Diet 5:2 and Dr. Michael Mosley.
Fast Diet book is based on the documentary Eat, Fast and Live Longer - Horizon. The first release of the book Fast Diet was in the UK. Amazon UK Fast Diet book has over positive 738 reviews and the testimony reviews are amazing!
The the Fast Diet is based on intermittent fasting on a weekly 5:2. Two days of 500 calorie intake continued with eat what you like the rest of the time.
Using short-term calorie restriction/fasting may be effective when it comes to:
Reducing blood glucose and insulin levels
Increasing fatty acid oxidation
Sparing and preserving muscle tissue
Increasing various health factors (lower inflammation, lower blood pressure, reduced oxidative stress, increased protection against neuro-degenerative diseases and more)
Keeping the metabolism strong/healthy
I dived in!
First week of results: Weight loss 2.2lbs!
Finally breaking my plateau:)
Tuesday: Fast & PiYo
