Intermittent Fasting Progress Report and Fitness Q&A

Intermittent Fasting Progress Report and Fitness Q&A featured by popular Atlanta fitness blogger Happily Hughes

Ok so update on intermittent fasting.  I am still doing a 10 hours on 14 hours off at least 5 days a week.  I try and do all seven days, but sometimes the weekends get crazy and I’m not going to stress about it too much.  During those 10 hours of eating I focus on macros.  My split is 40% protein, 35% carbs, 25% fat. Some days I increase my fat a little more if I feel low in energy. 

My Intermittent Fasting Schedule:

  • 6 AM wakeup- Detox tea.
  • 8 AM Breakfast: bowl of whole grain cereal with a scoop of protein powder and almond milk
  • 9 AM workout
  • 10 AM Snack: post-workout protein/spinach shake
  • 12 PM Lunch: Salad with chicken and balsamic dressing, with a side of hummus and carrots or GF pretzels OR Ezekieal bread sandwich with turkey, paleo mayo, cheese, spinach and a side of sweet potato fries (baked).
  • 3 PM Snack: almonds and apple OR celery and peanut butter
  • 5:30 PM Dinner: We’ve been doing a lot of meal delivery services lately as we’re SO burnt out on our normal chicken, sweet potatoes, and broccoli dinner.
  • Total calories come to about 1800 cals-2000 cals

Exercise: I do workout 5 days a week.  Typically it’s crossfit for at least 3 of those days and the other two will be spent at the gym doing HIIT and weights.  Most of my workouts burn at least 400 calories, but tend towards 500+.  The great thing about crossfit (and my trainers in particular) is that I am burning calories ALL DAMN DAY.  If you live in Atlanta, and haven’t tried my gym yet, I would love for you to come join me to see what I mean.  Basically, weights mixed with high intensity cardio cause your body to continue to burn calories at a higher rate throughout the day.  This is so ideal for fat-burning, as well as cardio-vascular health! If you have any other fitness questions or questions about intermittent fasting, please ask them below!

    I have never heard of intermittent fasting. I thought all fasting was simply not eating.. Very informative! I love how you expand on your days and how it works for you!
