I Don't Eat Dinner On Saturday

I take a long walk- 4.2 miles on Saturday and I don't eat dinner- it's supposed to lengthen one's telomeres. By the time I eat breakfast on Sunday I will not have eaten for 21 hours or so.

I am already FUCKIN hungry.

How lovely for you...

I wouldn't torture myself like that.

It's like Ramadan without the Islam!

Hm. Not for me, not unless I'm sick as fuck. I took an almost 3 mile walk today and about an hour later, I was very hungry and had some nonfat Greek yogurt w/a kiwi, 1/4 of a pear and a sprinkling of raw pumpkin seeds. I'm not into starving my body when it is asking for fuel.

It’s more like reverse Ramadan

R4- I took my long walk in the morning and afterwards had a big bowl of puffed corn, wheat and kamut in Oat milk and for lunch I ate two cans of Mackerel and some trail mix- so I did not starve myself on Saturday.

I eat plain non fat Greek yogurt twice a week. I mix in a whole avocado once a week that I mash up first. It's so tasty in the yogurt and the other day I mix in some hummus.

OP/R6 I've never heard of those yogurt combos...I'll have to try them!!

OP, you’re bragging about taking long walks and not eating, you must truly be enormous for this to be noteworthy.

The ice sheets are shrinking at an alarmingly rapid rate. I'm not worried about my telomeres.

R8- I WAS enormous in the spring of 2021. I've lost 55 pounds since then- 20% of my weight. I worked hard to get lose the weight and to stay at my current weight.

Millennials. Ugh there’s so many of them too!

How dreadful. At least have a handful of almonds or a piece of fruit, or both, before the night is over. Starving your body might be the latest fad, but it's never smart.

I am considering doing a fast like that every week. I did it two weeks ago and it wasn’t hard. I eat dinner on Friday, fast on Sat and eat breakfast on Sunday.

It’ll help me keep my weight down and clear my mind

R10, how’d you lose all that’s weight??

by Anonymousreply 14March 26, 2023 4:55 AM

R14- I weigh myself every day and I only eat my set meals for the day which I make the day before. I generally know days in advance what I'm eating. If my weight is up a bit the next day I cut back my calories for the next day. I've generally been ruthless. I mean that in spite of the cravings and hunger- which is just the body's way of getting you to stop losing weight and put the weight back on- I did not cave in and stuff my face. It is hard work but eventually your body adjusts to the lower weight and the cravings and hunger go away. I do eat plenty of fruits and vegetables most days. I eat fish twice a week and nuts and seeds four times a week plus soups made with beans. I walk everyday for exercise.
