IF Update: Day #53 (Eating)

Yes, I know. It's a Monday, and I'm eating. Given the lack of posting, you might be thinking I fell of the wagon. In truth, I did fall off the wagon last Monday, but it was an intentional attempt to try to get over a back injury that just won't go away. Due to my inability to gain muscle while doing IF, I decided it might be worthwhile to eat for a few days straight to see if it would improve my back's condition.

Unfortunately, I never found out. By the end of Monday, I was dealing with a full-blown stomach virus, and it dug its nails into my guts for the long haul. In 24 hours, it knocked me back by 10 pounds. Today is the first day since last Monday morning where I've felt anything close to normal and could eat normal food.

As of this morning, I was 186 lbs, 13.3% body fat.

I'm still deciding how to proceed from this point forward. Almost all of my weight loss during the illness was muscle which is easily confirmed by looking in a mirror. As a result, I need to put the muscle back on which may require eating on my fasting days. One option I've considered is using protein shakes or possibly high protein Naked Juice on the fasting days to help build muscle.

If anyone has any recommendations, let me know.

Hey hap, the expression 'off the wagon' is usually used with drinking isnt it? The first time I heard of it was from a Seinfeld episode and I always forget what on and off the wagon means! ;)

Hey Simone. I like to mutilate the language to the greatest extent possible and repurpose colloquialisms to suit my needs. Now, what Seinfeld joke did I just miss?? ;->
