I have done my second fast day this week reaaaally late, mainly because I wanted to see if it was easier to do a fast day on a day that I work. I start work at 12 and finish any time between 4.30 and 6.30 with no break for food, meaning that the time of day when I get the most hungry (3-4pm) I wouldn’t be able to eat anyway. But something else I’m trying today is cutting out 1 snack.
Brunch: Spaghetti Hoops and Wholemeal Toast – 209 calories
Dinner: Pasta with a homemade tomato sauce – 240 calories
Snack: 0% fat yogurt – 60 calories
Total: 509 calories
I know it looks like I’m having the same meal twice today haha, but that is just a coincidence. Spaghetti hoops and toast really fills me up so it’s great for a fast day without an afternoon snack, I had this at around 11am. Then I would at a football stadium where I serve and prepare food all day, so I was aware that I might crave food when I spelt all the hotdogs and chicken wraps etc, but you know what? I didn’t feel hungry, I went all day without wanting food and without proper hunger for the first time and it felt great! Even when I got home and was preparing dinner I didn’t feel starving like I expected and I had dinner and my snack and felt really full and happy. I didn’t feel the lack of energy I have experienced in the past, I actually didn’t feel any different than an normal day. So it obviously does get better! I’m so happy!
