Update on my fasting 16:8 for steadier mood

It is hard to know if intermittent fasting does steady the mood. I am sure it helps with self-discipline and that has to be a good thing.

I believe the main benefits for me have been:

  1. Clearer thinking in the morning while stomach is empty
  2. Digestive system will be repairing better while stomach is empty
  3. Far less tempted by junk food as I am not eating between meals

My graph is looking busy as there are now a lot of points, as simply write in my diary the time I have my first and last food each day. Mostly first food is anywhere between 10am and 2pm. Last food is usually close to 6:30pm.

This next week I am going to be experimenting with finishing eating even earlier to see if that helps with sleep.
