If you are hungry at lunch, eat at lunch...make it workable. Any movement this direction, deleting a meal here and there while eating cleaner will provide benefit.

No rules, just what helps make life better.

Hey Jeff!

Like Robb and MOD said, if you're really hungry go ahead and eat. However, you also mentioned getting bored at lunchtime. I definitely struggled with that a bit at first, but for me it was just a matter of getting over the psychology of the noon meal. You've just been programmed to eat then, but you don't really have to if you're not hungry. I've been able to stay on top of my required office notes much more effectively b/c I'll crank from 12-1 while everyone else is scurrying around for food.

That being said, we get reps to cater lunch to our office about 6 times a month, and if it looks tasty, that's the day I break fast at noon. I have a strict policy about turning down free (good) food.

William,

Thanks for the advice. Sometimes I work through lunch too and I'm good as long as I'm busy. Sometimes I just plain get hungry so I might pop a handful of nuts or something. The biggest problem I'm having is making myself workout before I break fast in the evening. I'm really looking to cut some fat over the next few months.

BTW got the family moved back to GA. I still haven't called your MMA friend because I won't be there until around January myself.

Jeff

I found coffee helps to curb the hunger...must be the caffeine..

I find myself WAY too sensitive to caffeine when fasting. When hunger pangs strike, a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar in 8 oz. of water does a pretty good job.

i agree with mike. if you are able to handle the caffeine, iced americanos and drip coffee are the only way i get through the fast during the workday.

ill even down the caffeine pre/during a workout in a fasted state. i havent been too successful getting through a fasted-workout, otherwise.

I love coffee but can't drink it straight black all the time and I also find it gives me terrible heart burn on an empty stomach. I may try some unsweetened tea or soemthing like that.

I've found this helpful also.
