Fasting.

How do I stop fasting? (16/8 diet) I have so many fears and what ifs and it feels horrible. I know I can not truly do IE while doing IE (I was lying to myself believing I could). I've been doing IF for over a year now, and I am hungry in the morning but won't eat until 11am/12pm even after the gym. I want to change this, I want to change my mind set about fasting, any advice?See More

Grocery Freedom!

Yesterday I had one of the most fun grocery shopping trips ever.  It made me excited to take care of myself and experiment with food (knowing that I don't have to be perfect at knowing what I will eat and knowing what I like).I had an awareness that sweets weren't the only foods that I was forbidding.  I was still forbidding stuff like regular yogurt, fruit juices, certain cereals, frozen-pre-prepared meals and other things I can't remember at the moment.  But yesterday I felt free to get…See More

IE + 1 .... Emotional Eating/Binging + 0!

Hi All,Today I had a great moment. I was leaving a 2+ hour breakfast where I ate something and then stayed at the restaurant to work on some paperwork and prep for going into the office. The paperwork and prep was a bit stressful and I was getting geared up to face the challenges to come when I arrived at the office. (Nothing terrible, but stressful nonetheless.)As I was leaving the restaurant, I thought about a 1/2 sandwich I had in my car for later. I imagined getting into the car and before…See More
