Proud Dad And IFing
My son is pretty committed to his sport, swimming. He’s a junior in high school and his weekly practice schedule looks like this:
- Monday: 5:30am – 6:30am AND 5:30pm – 7:30pm, total 3 hours
- Tuesday: 5:30pm – 7:30pm, total 2 hours
- Wednesday: 5:30am – 6:30am AND 5:30pm – 7:30pm, total 3 hours
- Thursday: 5:30pm – 7:30pm, total 2 hours
- Friday: 5:30pm – 7:30pm, total 2 hours
- Saturday: 7:30am – 10:00am, total 2.5 hours
Folks, that’s a total of 14.5 hours per week training! Yesterday all that hard work pays off in the form of a meet where he swam in four events. I’m so proud of his dedication! 😀
So what the heck does that have to do with intermittent fasting? Well, instead of eating my first meal at noonish, We ended up eating much closer to 3:30pm, which means I fasted from about 8pm the previous day until 3:30pm, over 18 hours. Here’s the thing, I was never dizzy or light-headed–basically, I never suffered from the typical “low blood sugar” symptoms. This proves to me I have successfully converted my body from a sugar burner to a fat burning beast! This is one of the reasons I stay lean and mean!
I hope your weekend is going well and, as always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
