I learned yesterday that coffee has nothing to do with my IBS as I spent too much time in the bathroom after lunch. I am exhausted this morning and will take a well deserved day of rest. I will also break my intermittent fasting today with a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I may even readjust my fasting schedule to just every other day rather than every day. Even though my weight has dropped significantly I am just not happy with my early morning glucose readings.
Maybe the issue is that a fasting regimen is meant to be periodically and not permanent, I don’t know but I will learn. For each of us our bodies respond in different ways and I what I am learning is that I cannot practice intermittent fasting on a constant ongoing basis. So this switch is yet another attempt to figure out just where I belong. It may be that all I need to do is reduce calorie intake each day and that would be enough to keep my body burning fat. If I were working a physically demanding job each day I know that I wouldn’t even have a problem with burning fat. Our ancestors were not paper pushers and even chipping away on stone takes great effort. They worked hard each day and developed a w
orking body throughout the years and I am a result of this genetic development as we all are. Working physically hard each day is the human norm and most of us just aren’t getting the same results from the workouts we do each day at the gym. Even up to just a few hundred years ago the normal working day was some type of physical labor.
