Loud stomach noises during fasting


My stomach has always been very noisy, and I have always noticed it. Now that I am intermittent fasting, it gets louder as I get closer to the 18 hour mark. I plan for longer fasts, and don’t have an issue on the weekends, but the weekdays are harder as I work in a very quiet office with open floor plan. I know my emotion is embarrassed and I end up eating a snack; handful of nuts, to quite my stomach. I have 20 more pounds to lose and would like to go for 20 hour fasts, as my weight loss has stalled. I think I have 2 options; 1. Reduce my fasting window and make sure I plan the snack and eliminate 100% of the grabassing; mostly sugar and flour. 2. Go for the 20 hour fast and coach myself through what I’m making my noisy stomach mean and why I am choosing to be embarrassed.
