I'm finding IF to be great but a little like making a deal with the Devil. You think you'll dabble in it for just a little while, or just a few days a week...and then it sucks away your soul when you try to switch back and forth.

I've been stuck in IF for a while now, kinda like Chevy Chase in European Vacation when he can't get out of the traffic circle.

Funny, to me IF'ing is like catching any of the Vacation movies on TV. Once you see it's on, you can't stop watching. I started IF'ing in April as an experiment and still do it every day (few exceptions).

Last night, saw Vegas Vacation was on; couldn't stop watching.

Yea...I think intermittent fasting really streamlines things...and performance/health is good.

That's the good side of IF....the dark side is like watching any Jean Claude VanDamme or Steven Segal movie.....you know it is going to suck....you have seen it more than Roadhouse....you have commercial breaks to walk away or turn the channel....yet somehow 2hours later you watch the whole thing and regret wasting your life energy like that...but then realize it's a triple feature and look forward to "Bloodsport" which seems to be coming up next....

As for vacation...."This is crazy...this is crazy...."...doing that at the apartment pool many years ago got me....(PG version)...a kiss on the cheek from a girl at the pool....(if it was after 10pm I would have a different version...)

I can't imagine trying to have the discipline to do IF without having the discipline to eat cleaner. Though I have noticed that after fasting I have a tendency to gravitate towards hamburgers and pizza then anything else.

I feel with the whole healthy eating/IFing that it is more like the Little Rascals episode where Alfalfa had the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other.

It is a war, take baby steps or set yourself up for failure.

PS: Just for the record, I got sucked into one of those crappy Segal movies you where talking about, just last night.

I wasn't aware Steven Segal made crappy movies.

Okay, so what is the best way to resist the temptation to eat during the day? I get bored and eat at lunch sometimes. I know all the benefits of IF but just struggle with the willpower to not eat.
