I found in the past that a Bad Trigger Food for My metabolism was empty Carbs- Like Jumbo Hot Bagels 🥯; After eating one, It Triggered My Appetite and Insulin To Crave More and was difficult to not have more.
I’ve been doing this intermittent fasting for a year now and have good results in lower blood pressure and small weight loss. But the interesting side effect is now when I have a day where I eat lots of white carbs, my sugars bottom out within 2 hours and I feel awful. I do not have metabolic disease but my doctor just chalks it up to me being very insulin responsive now.
I would love to try this but how strict is it? Would a morning cup of tea with milk plus tsp of sugar ruin the fast? That life long habit of tea when I first wake up would be harder to break than any meal schedule change which would be pretty easy.
Any amount of calorie intake, no matter how little, would ruin the 14hr fast
Yes, because the milk and sweeteners cause an insulin response in the body when the taste buds, the very first point of digestion, detect and prepare to digest whatever follows regardless of the calories. This halts the fasting process…
everyone eats with their individual tastes and more importantly, they must be nutritious and healthy
Not very practical if you need to eat breakfast before school or work at 6:30 am and not home again till about 6.
very good and informative blog.
