9 Hour Feeding Window

I have been eating in a 9 hour window from 11 AM to 8 PM for 4 months.  It is an easy way to get into intermittent fasting.  It has a bunch of other positive benefits.  When you are out and about on a Saturday night and your old friend Jumbo Pizza slice calls to you, it is just not an option to eat it.  I tend to eat a meal with plenty of fats around 8 PM on a night that I’m going out so that I’m still burning through that fat and am more able to deal with temptation.  I haven’t given in yet.  The key idea behind the feeding window is that your establish a clear time to fast.  When you wake up in the morning before you break your nightly fast with breakfast, your body will be operating differently.  For many people, this is the only time that they may possibly be running off ketones (or have a higher level of ketones which are a product of burning fat).  My feeding window has also changed the way I feel about eating by transforming it into something that is under my control.  It’s no longer chaos.  Depending on the meal plan that I decide on at the beginning of the day, I will be eating either 3 or 4 meals and that is it.  I know what the meal plan is from the jump.  It then makes it easier for me to also regulate what the content of my meals will be.  It is meat and veggies for me for now.  A few berries, which are lower in sugar, have been finding their way in lately and I have been loving them.  I’m trending down, so I’m happy with that.
