Start 2: Intermittent fasting day number 1

I started intermittent fasting 25 days ago and I have failed miserably. Today, I start again and hopefully, we get a different result but may that is insanity.


  • Weight: 237 pounds – gained 7 pounds since 31 January.
  • Body fat: 29%.
  • Waist: 41 inches.
  • Short term goal: 220 pounds so I have 12 pounds to go.
  • Exercise – 3 days a week on a bike and walking
  • Diet: Smoothie for lunch and a sensible dinner. About 1200 calories total with 35 grams of fiber.

The bottom line: Intermittent fasting may be the solution for me but time will tell. So far, it has been a failure. I will post an update on Monday and Friday until I meet my first goal. Wish me luck.
