Intermittent Fasting - Informative FAQ
Sally, the next couple of posts are for you!
Enjoy this Intermittent Fasting FAQ
This jumped out at me: Question: I’ve been eating on a Fast-5 schedule all week and I’m still eating everything in sight. What do I do?
Answer: Give yourself time to adjust. Compensatory overeating is a normal part of the adjustment, and typically subsides after a week, but sometimes it takes up to three weeks. Weight loss is not to be expected until you’ve been on a steady Fast-5 schedule for at least three weeks.
Patience is key then, but people do lose weight with this method and keep it off as well, so don't lose heart when the scale does not move for days or even 3 weeks. You may, however, begin to notice your clothes feeling looser on you. :-)
