Daily Food Journal | Week 14 | Breaking a Diet Plateau

Sharing is caring!

I hit a diet plateau and I decided to switch things up a bit in the hopes of restarting fat loss. Actually, I was trying to fast more often and for longer periods.

But on the first planned fasting day, February 25th, I was ravenous by 11:00. Apparently, dinner wasn’t enough either, as I wolfed down a snack of cheese and more pepperoni after dinner.

Black coffee usually works to quell the hunger pangs. On this day, though, I needed a snack within an hour. Ultimately, I decided to go with the 18/6 (fast for 18 hours, with a 6 hour eating window) plan for the week in order to break the diet plateau.

On Monday, I tried this simple fried mushroom recipe from Clara’s Great Depression Cooking. It’s an easy, cheap and delicious side dish. I’ve made it several times since.

I love grits with lots of butter and salt and I indulged a couple of days. BUT, I only ate 1/2 a serving. We’ll find out later how much effect those additional carbs may have had.
