So far 3 core challenges can be felt for these original fasting strategies. This is after only one day of testing and a few things come up already.
The first one: energy drop
not eating my normal diet when I feel like my body calls for energy gives me a GAO within the next few hours to 24 hours.
This morning, 24 hours after starting with these light smoothies, I already feel an energy drop. It's not much yet, like being at 80% rather than 100% but I definitely see it affecting my level of energy and motivation in my morning routine.
Challenge 2 - overating after a few light fasting hours.
I already observed that last night as well with a bigger evening snack + tendency to go for a bit of cheese rather than just a normal snack.
Challenge 3 - choosing the right time of the day to have light smoothies...
That's not a real string challenge but simply something to consider...
2 more essential points to consider...
Being at 20% hunger level is managable - the desire or need to eat is totally sustainable for a few hours. That's ok.
The main challenge again is an energy drop rather than hunger feelings.
