Eating less often to improve mood

Being physically healthy including having a body-shape we can live with is good for mood / having the moods we want to be having. Watching this video it seems Thomas DeLauer is on a 16/8 diet as I was on for a while. Except he is eating between 4pm and midnight.

Isn’t everyone else saying “Do not eat late in the evening”.

Yet… What I’ve found (along with many (most?) others) is that skipping breakfast is relatively easy… I mean… eating later is easy… compared with avoiding food in the evening – that often seems an impossibility.

So, have we all been conned by big food businesses who make more money from us eating earlier in the day, with claims like “Breakfast – The most important meal of the day“?

Is intermittent fasting in its easiest form (for most people) simply a matter of going as long as possible before the first food of the day. Many months back I was not eating before noon and it was doing me good. So… I wonder what would happen if I dispensed with any rules about late evening eating? Would those awful gut pans come back? Or maybe with my gut repairing between about 10pm and noon the next day, I’d feel great?

More realistically, for me… a kind of resolution (on January 1st)….. I wonder how many days I could >>> ALWAYS GO FOR A WALK BEFORE EATING ANYTHING AT ALL <<< Now that sounds simple, yet I am thinking that is a powerful idea… why? Well just one reason is that when I fail to walk I feel awful.

This video from Steve Mitchell kind of starts slow, but for ordinary people (those of us without massive muscles) what he shares about intermittent fasting seems very useful.

So… today, is kind of the first day of a new life for me… nice long walk at sunrise, some coffee and no food so far… feeling great!
