I have more or less kept to this diet. Basically I under eat during the day and overeat at night. It was kind of difficult the first few days, but my body adapted pretty easily.
Did I notice any changes? The only changes that I have noticed are that I don’t crash after my former mid day large snack. I have more of a steady stream of energy through the day.
I also noticed I lost about 5 pounds which is of a little concern since I am already skinny. I stopped doing jiujitsu in that time too. When I saw my teacher after missing 2 months he said that it looked like I lost muscle.
I still seem to have a little bit of fat around my waist. So if I lost muscle then that is no good and then I should change something.
Basically my diet has been like this:
- Breakfast: A grapefruit
- Lunch: A banana and some nuts
- Mid day snack: Yogurt and a banana
- Dinner (around 7pm): I pretty much eat whatever and quite a bit.
- Late snack (9-11pm)
It’s nice not spending a bunch of time preparing food either. I have been eating less wheat as well. I have a toothache, so I was going to try to limit for around a month or so foods high in phytic acid: stuff like nuts, beans and bread.
Since then I have been doing a fast on every Sunday. I start at 10pm on Sat. and don’t eat till 7pm on Sunday.
