Intermittent Fasting. Yesterday, I had a commenter ask about how I approach breaking my fast after intermittent fasting:
So are you basically eating once a day? Or are you eating for several hours in the evening?
I eat a big SCD meal when I get home around 5 or 6 PM. For example, last night day I ate:
- ~2 cups of refried beans and salsa
- An 10-oz steak with sauce made of mayo + Louisiana hot sauce
- Half a bag of Green Giant Healthy Colors Market Blend vegetables
- A large salad (3 cups worth or so) of romaine lettuce, 6-7 pepperoncinis, real bacon bits, and Ken’s Steakhouse Creamy Caesar dressing
- Diet Barq’s root beer
I usually eat a snack later on between 8 and 9 PM. Maybe some salami slices, a spoonful or two of all-natural peanut butter, an Atkins bar (rarely), some almonds, or something else along those lines. The snack is generally pretty small.
The feeding window is about 4 hours or so but the vast majority of food is consumed in one big meal.
In the interest of full disclosure, I did go ff SCD a bit last night: two small cubes of cheese in the salad and 1/3 of a single dark chocolate Dove nugget. 😉
Question of the Day. How do you break your fast following IF?

Damn. Rained too much this morning and I couldn’t go out. I woke up, but the lightning convinced me that maybe it would not be a good idea to venture into the night.
