I Am Not Cattle!

T.R.F - Time Restricted Feeding. It sounds like a corporate beef raising technique. Industrial farms. Strict feeding schedule for the cattle. Nope. It's a type of diet strategy. Fast for a certain number of hours each day, and lose weight by eating what you normally eat. So, for the past few weeks I have been fasting fifteen hours, from 7:00 ish in the evening until 10:00 the next morning. Is it working? I'll let you know at the end of the month!

Today I faced a dilemma. It was a teacher work day. I have a tradition. On teacher workdays I take myself out for breakfast before work. I dragged myself out of bed, activated the French press, and then opened the google and the yelp, trying to find the best breakfast sandwich in Portland. And then it hit me. T.R.F! Stick with the program and eat a frozen Amy's at 10:00, or honor tradition?

What can I say? I'm a traditionalist. At least where breakfast is concerned.

  1. Breakfast is important. Before I retired I ate the same breakfast every day, so I wouldn't have to think about what to eat -- since it takes me a couple of hours to wake up. Maybe it was boring, but it got me going. Other meals can be more interesting and different.
