    Rusky87 got a reaction from Beklet in Intermittent Fasting Result Pics.   
    Hey guys,
     
    I took some photos back in November when I decided to shift some pounds and try a little something called Intermittent Fasting. I know those two words cause a ripple of 'oohs' and 'ahhs' inside fitness circles as some people believe in it, and its benefits, others don't and some are just plain terrified.
     
    Well, I gave it a go anyway... See my story below.
     
    I was a shocking and big-t1ted 191lbs/88kgs/13.7stone when I first decided to cut the chub. Sick of stuffing my ever-growing face with pork scratchings, cheesecake and every other heart attack inducing food I could get my chubby fingers on.
     
    I was unhealthy. I was unhappy. I didn't want to be part of the 'growing obese percentage' we keep hearing about on the news. I didn't want to be the salad-dodging chubster in future who's alienated by friends and colleagues because of my weight. We all know fat people these days get left on the sidelines and made to feel bad about the fact they have a bad relationship with food. Only to be partly accepted when they own up to being a fat phuck and tell people they're actually trying to do something about it. That wasn't going to be me...
     
    Well back in November, it WAS ME!!! Tell a lie, I wasn't HUGE (see pics) but I was definitely starting to fill up my T-shirts and well on the long and unhappy road to having all kinds of blood related diseses, heart problems and maybe even a carer to pop round and wipe my @ss every day because my jelly-belly is too wide for me to reach around.
     
    I thought PHUCK IT!!!!
     
    I'm not becoming one of those [email protected] who have to get craned out of their house by firemen. No way am I going to sit around all day with a tube of pringles watching Jeremy Kyle, Homes Under the Hammer, Cash in the Attic and other antique/bargain related TV shows whilst my skin fuses with the settee material!!!! Noooooo way....
     
    Enter Intermittent Fasting.
     
    It sounded great to me. I don't have to rely much on calorie counting. I can eat what I want so no need to be one of those miserable muppets on a diet who b1tch and moan like "Oh, no I can't eat that... that Yorkshire Pudding is worth 6 points on my slimming world plan."
     
    PHUCK slimming world plans! Phuck Yorkshire puddings!!! Damn em' all to hell.
     
    Eating whatever I want inside a certain time period was, I thought, the best way to go. And you know what? I think it was...
     
    My eating window was 1pm-6pm. So basically I skipped breakfast which I often did anyway and didn't fill my gob with Haribo after my tea. Pretty easy in all honesty. Did I feel hungry at the start while my stomach was acclimatizing to the change? Yes, but after 4/5 days on IF, it all went away and I was golden. I could do a 24 hour fast now if I wanted to and not even feel the need to slip a Malteaser in my mouth.
     
    Anyway, like i said, I started at 191Lbs. I weighed myself this morning and I was 165lbs. That's 26lbs GONE relatively easily.
     
    All it took was a little determination and dedication.
     
    I'm looking to stick to I.F until around February and then begin to hopefully build some muscle.
     
    Any thoughts would be appretiated. Also, here is a link to my AWESOME journal that none of you guys read. There are pics of me and pics of meals I prepared and some bits and bobs about the workouts I tried.
