ah my bad. I read it with extra words in my head, like a "to" in there.
I can work towards this. I do train in the morning and like my scrambed eggs + spinach afterwards. And otherwise coud limit the day to small yogurt + berries, or chcken + brocolli,, peanut butter + celery, canned fish salad with olive oil, almonds/walnuts/pistacios/macedamia nuts
It really felt good to lose that 40 pounds. I fasted 24 hours 2x a week and otherwise ate everything, a bit less junk than the old day. Now, I see going to someting like this with mixing in some 24 fasts.
You've posted before that a binge night un does all the efforts of the week. I have trouble grabbing on to that. I worked my ass off to get this fat LOL. I mean, no one to blame but me. 4x week to Taco Bell, whole bags of sunflower seeds, pizza pizza pizza, working in Steak and Pasta restaurant - manager meals daily, bread stuffed with meats balls for snacks. Then, got a sedentary job, and gained even faster. Now, that weight gain occured in stages over 16 years. Maybe, I'm in denial and think if I just went back to my pre-twenty eating (you know, like regular folk) but healthieer - less grain, less simple carbs, more protein, almost 0 trans fat, plenty of good fats, lots of greens and tubars
- I'd lose fat steadily. You make me think I have to eat strict 24/7 to make any progress.
IOW, I maintained 290-300 eating crappy, then lost 40 eating better but still not strict - with fasting added in.
It's sort of like I"m begging for permission to plan for a bit of cheating, like 10% of meals (someone said that right?). Or, is that for well conditioned folks, whereas fatties need to be strict 99.9 % ?
thanks, I'm sure this get old answering questions
