The Fast5 Lifestyle

I’m trying the Fast5 diet & hopefully lifestyle. It’s super simple: eat within 5 consecutive hours. Outside that window, don’t eat & only drink water, tea, & black coffee.

I. The past I’ve tried to not eat after dinner (at 5pm) and it hasn’t worked. I’m always hungry later. Fast5 suggests that your 5 hour window be from 5pm-10pm, and that sounded perfect to me. I can still have dinner with my family, and snacks while watching TV or movies! Sure, skipping breakfast & lunch will be tricky, but it’s worth a try.

I’m done day 3 now, and it hasn’t been too difficult. Surprisingly, I feel more alert, I don’t have any crashes during the day, and my mood is better than usual! Good stuff! I’m also finding that I feel full more quickly, so even when I’m allowed to eat whatever, I don’t eat that much. I don’t feel deprived. I think I can do this :)
