Here's my current intermittent fasting protocol. As a rule, monday, wednesday and friday I go to the gym for a one-hour workout and then just have a light lunch c. 500 calories. The other days I try not to go over the 2,500 calorie daily-allowance, and avoid junk.
After eight months I would say that almost all of the "apple-shaped" abdominal fat I used to have is gone, save for a small ridge of flab under my ribs, just above my waist.
Anyway, enough of this. It's time to spend an hour hoovering the house - penance for having just eaten a rather delicious ginger biscuit (with xylitol), one of a batch Clare made yesterday.
