Intermittent Fasting: Day 4


So, a few days ago my wife and I started 16:8 intermittent fasting. Basically, we fast for 16 hours and eat within an 8 hour window. During the fasting period, I drink water and black coffee, that’s it.

Things I have noticed in just a few days;

– I rarely feel hungry, and when I do, it’s usually for maybe a minute or two.

– I have more energy than normal

– I feel more energetic at the gym

– I haven’t craved any types of foods or snacks

– I lost a few kg already which is insane

– I can see big changes to my body already

But best of all, I feel fucking great!

I am quite new to this and I have been researching a lot online. A lot of people say certain things and some contradict each other, so basically, I found some actual studies on IF and I made a plan for myself, so I will see how it goes over the next few weeks. If something isn’t right, I will adjust accordingly.

I will attach a picture from day 5 on the bottom here, I can already see some differences and I’m excited to see how my body reacts over the next few weeks.

It is important to stick to our Macros during your eating window, and I have been eating good carbs, fats and proteins, I haven’t had a cheat meal yet 🙂

As I said, we are pretty new to it so if anyone has any advice let me know, or if anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to ask.

Cheers,

Gary

idlers 12hour endurance race – Motegi 2015 part 1


  
So, I made the trip back to Tokyo last week to attend my fourth idlers 12hour endurance race with RWB at Motegi. I didn’t have much time off work so I was under a little pressure time-wise. I flew out Friday morning, arrived in Haneda Saturday morning and found out they left my bag in London, with my race gear in it, nightmare! Met my friends for breakfast at the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi before hooking up with my friend Royze for lunch..

  
God Pistache is beautiful and has come a long way since he bought it! Okay, time to head to Chiba(with no aircon)..

   
    
   
Met some new guys and a lot of old friends, and took a look around the cars we would be using 🙂 Instantly fell in love with both the white and purple 964s

  
At about 10:30 we headed up the road to the local Ministop where we all met up and bought food and drinks for the few hours ahead. Next stop, Moriya Parking Area..

   
    
 Met this guy.. 

 

Time to leave for the circuit..

  
When we got off the highway I said to Sean(naritadogfight) that our car sounded weird, it was only when we got to Motegi that James from the UK said one of our exhaust tips came off on the highway and almost went through the windscreen of CHARLENE he was driving! Here is the other tip that we broke off..

  
More stuff in part 2, thanks!
