7/115 contd.

I get asked regularly - why do you fast? Your body needs food for energy.

I have 2 main reasons for it.

1. Fat is energy that your body has stored for when food is short - nowadays we, in the West, don't have food shortages so unless I fast - my body has stored a lot of energy - I just keep on burning the energy that I put in as it's easier to do, and never burn the energy my body has stored for me.

2. I find it easier to not eat. I don't have to think about macros or anything. My blood sugar stays well within non-diabetic limits and that means that if I've indulged - like the ice cream I had last week - it rectifies the problem - where I could slip back into being a diabetic if I didn't.

It's fun too

Yep, me too. Been fasting twice a week since first week in February (the Fast diet- 500 a day) but also try to practise 16-8 . Me and hubby have lost 8st between us. It works and makes you feel great👍

For me #2 comes before #1 :) But, yeah, I fast because it works! And it is fun, and I feel better when I am fasting. My emotions have been all over the place because I have NOT been fasting these past two days (because of the Holiday here in the US).
