Anyone else doing it?

Kind of hard at work with snacks around. But I’ve been doing 16:8 for 3 days. Hoping to keep it up and see how I progress.

    Once you get past a week, it becomes more manageable. Avoid simple carbs. Else, hunger kicks in real quick.

    I've been on it for about a month, def helps cut down on the snacking by not opening that can of worms until after lunch

    Just drink lots of water etc before noon, down about 5-7 lbs so far (though tbf it's all stuff I had gained very recently so I was above typical maintenance weight)

      Mostly that is water weight that you lost.

      ^Highly misinformed assertion. Unless FB is consuming a ton of carbs or higher than average amounts of sodium, water weight is lost within 3-5 days based on body composition. And losing this water weight is necessary in order to begin to start burning fat anyways so I'm not sure why you're trying to discredit his progress.

      Google just gave his/her opinion. There was no malice. Why are you so jumpy?

      Eh I don't think it's all water weight, I'm pretty familiar with how my bodyweight fluctuates (I've had extended periods of weight loss/gain), it's been steadily around 1 lb/week (after initial water weight dump)

    Been doing it a year now. Moved to 18:6. Lost a bunch of weight. Helps with energy since I don’t eat heavy anymore. Abs are showing. No snacking at night or junk food. Not the best socially but obviously you can turn it off once a week

      Eat within 1 hour every 3 days.

      I have a big meal at 7 pm on this cadence, about 4000 calories

    I do 20:4 a couple of times a week. Weekdays is easy, just drink lots and lots of water

    16:8 is easy. Just only eat at work.

    But honestly? The easiest way is to just skip breakfast. Don’t go cold turkey though, you should ramp down.

    How 18:6 works?

    16:8 from 2 months, loved it after a month , but I have been on no sugar diet for 3 months. Feels so much energy and focus before 2 pm, lost about 15 lbs without hitting gym, but I followed it pretty seriously and I don’t eat garbage . Now I am not hungry usually on fasting, just eat my two meals with good balanced portion of everything. Make sure you eat lots of veggies and water ( potassium is the key )

    I do 16:8 with 20:4 sometimes on weekends. Works great and easy to do as long as you don’t break the habit.

    I have been doing it for a month. Definitely helps in fat loss but my gains have slowed down as well.

    I did it for a few weeks to help increase my blood pressure...yes I know it sounds weird, but it helped. My blood pressure was always on the lower range on normal, but for a period of 3 weeks, my blood pressure would drop to 82-85/35-40, leaving me dizzy and nauseous. Coffee in the morning and eating between 12pm - 8 pm really helped me bring my blood pressure up to 92-95/50 ish

    Intermittent fasting + protien for the meals = helps reduce those cravings
