The little experiment..

OK.. I am going to start with the 60 day challenge.. Even though I have had fun with the questions - I haven't really been able to commit to it.. I might restart it after newyears but meh.. Will see..

Now over to the experiment.. As you guys might remember I have mentioned Rusty Moore a few times before.. I read about him the first time months ago in Harlow's blog and I have loved him and his ideas ever since. I bought his e-book Visual impact for woman months ago (ashamed to say that I haven't been doing much more than reading there but I will put it into use) ... Anywho.. When I bought the E-book, I also started getting his newsletter. A while back I got this document about IF - intermittent fasting. This document has a whole lot of info about IF - and how to use it and what it is good for and so on. The version that I am going to try is the one Rusty has talked about in his blog several times and it is called eat stop eat.

Eat Stop Eat
(24 hour fast, 1 or 2 times per week)
On this plan, you fast for a full 24 hours once or twice per week, eating sensibly (higher protein, minimizing processed foods, etc.) the rest of the week. It’s flexible: You can choose whichever 24 hours you want. Want to fast from breakfast to breakfast? That’s cool. Just eat breakfast on Monday, and don’t eat again until breakfast on Tuesday. Want to fast dinner to dinner? That’s cool too. Eat dinner on Wednesday, and don’t eat again until dinner on Thursday.

So that is what I am doing today. I had my meal about 19:30 last night. And I wont eat until after 8 PM today. Now the reason why I want to do this :

I have mentioned over and over and over how I have don't seem to stop eating when I am full- or I eat while I am not really hungry.. I think most of the times I feel hungry.. I am hungry cause I THINK I am hungry.. Not cause I am.. And what I want from IF is to learn the actually body hunger - and learn to recognize it in my everyday. I think when I restrict .. I often eat for the sake of eating.. Not because I am very hungry and need to eat. I always eat cause I want to eat.

I told hubby that I was going to try it - and explained what I wanted to achieve from it. He actually for once agree's that it is a good idea.


I am also putting together an exercise plan which I want to get on after new years. Until then I want to focus on doing cardio - getting in a better shape - and learn to control my appetite.. (Yet again).. I am still not going to stress with it. We will have a whole lot on our hands even after we move - not having the kitchen ready - and so on.. So I aim to get back on the exercise mode from December 5'th..

I will post a detailed plan when it is ready and I am ready hehe ..

Off for now ..



Forgot to say :) Happy turkey day :)


  1. I would love to hear how Eat Stop Eat goes for you. What kind of workouts are in Rusty's ebook? Lifting? Free weights? Machines? I would love to hear more about this ebook as well. Hope you're enjoying your Thanksgiving Day!

  2. IF worked well for me when I was on it and following it properly. Good luck! You should definitely see some results from it, and the best thing about it, I think, is that you know you're going to get to eat something at some point every day, so you feel less deprived than if you were on a full fast

  3. I like IF. It works for me but I do it randomly (some short, some long) so it fits in with my life.
    I've got Rusty's stuff too and I've just quit the gym (money issues) so I'm thinking about doing the at home version of it... let me know if you start, perhaps we could do it together?
    I've got a post on true hunger that might be of interest to you too... http://skinny-vegan-food.blogspot.com/2011/11/true-hunger-heightened-sense-of-taste.html
    All the best xxx

  4. Yay Thanksgiving.
    The best and worst time of the year, for sure.
    I like the intermittent fasting idea, I would never be able to pull it off at university though. :(
    Hope all is going well for you!
    Stay positive, stay beautiful. <3

  5. I like the idea of intermittent fasting. I think I probably do it unconsciously, but I'd love to give it a try at some point.
    I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. xx
