I lost 6 lbs in a week :) Intermittent Fasting & Low Carb

Hi guys, just a short update to you all,  I ended up losing 6 lbs this week and I am stoked, I know that this weight-loss is partly water weight but  a loss is still a loss and thats nearly half a stone! It’s not all about the number on the scale but seeing such a decrease this week has helped to keep me motivated to carry on with a healthy lifestyle.

I am not going to lie I did eat a couple packets of crisps throughout the week,work was very busy and decided I would treat myself to some Cheese and Onion crisps but I don’t feel bad about it, it happened and thats that really. I also ate out once this week as it was my housemates birthday which meant that I ate after 4pm on one day. 

In all honesty I am not sure if the intermittent fasting made much of a difference, I am a big snacker so restricting the time window in which I could eat meant that I couldn’t spend the evenings stuffing my face but I could just have easily stuck to the diet 100 % and spread my meals across the day. I have to admit that I did end up sleeping better which is awesome because I tend to average around 4 hours of horrible sleep most nights but I think that was down to not eating crappy foods or consuming caffeine and sugar.

All in all I think Low  Carb is still the best way of eating for me and I will continue to eat that way for the foreseeable future as I think it’s the fastest  way to drop weight. I might try intermittent fasting again as I like the idea of keeping my food intake within a certain time window and I assume that I’d be able to notice more health benefits over a longer time period.
