I am curios what are you eating when you come off the fasting times?
You will carp your pants lol.
So here is my typical day. I don't count calories, carbs, fats...none of that nonsense. That is why I chose this method. Just be reasonable.
Hit the Peloton bike and burn anywhere from 600-900 calories. Wait until 1PM to eat, eat again around 6PM and enjoy some brewskies then to bed. Water and black coffee only again until 1 PM the next day and repeat.
So, this morning I burned 876 calories during my cardio ride. Enjoy water, coffee and green tea until lunch. Then had a center cut sirloin and steamed broccoli that measured at 800 calories. So at this point I still have a 76 calorie deficit due to the cardio so lunch was a free meal. SO basically now I have not had breakfast or lunch in terms of calories....even though I ate.
So for dinner tonight I had basically the same. I'll be generous and estimate it at 1,000 calories. So even with that, I have only technically consumed 900ish calories for the day. So even with 7 beers on top of that, I would only be at 1600 calories :-).
Working like a champ and the easiest way to create a calorie deficit. The cardio just puts it in beast mode. You can basically eat anything you want. I've had potatoes, breads and pasta through this three weeks.
