    Anyone intermittent fasting?

    Anyone intermittent fasting? If so how’s it working out? How about anyone that gave it a try and it didn’t workout “thoughts”?

    Worked great for me when I did it. Lost a good bit of weight. 500 calories every other day. Eat what you want on the other days. No time constraints. Easy-peezy. I was losing at least 5 pounds a week. I need to get back to it....

    I find it super easy and when I am on it, I usually feel great.

    At the end of the day it's all about calories in vs calories burned. I use int. fasting just to cut breakfast out so I have 300ish calories less to budget for per day.

    Are y’all doing the *16/8* intermittent fasting?

    I do one meal a day and sometimes fast for as long as 96 hours a week. It's far easier than cutting calories for me. I get very angry and aggressive
    While on calorie reduction. Fasting chills me out plus the weight I can lift goes up during a long fast.
    I consume salts to keep me strong. Sodium chloride, potassium salt and magnesium salt.

    I'm not very scientific about it. I try to eat my last meal before 8 or 9 at night and not eat till 11am / noon the following day. I generally have a cup or two of coffee or tea in the AM. If I am still actually hungry after that, I'll eat. Most mornings the coffee works just fine. A big help is drinking a full glass or two of water when you are "hungry." Lately, I've been trying to go through three 32oz Yeti's of water per day.

    As for trying to lose weight, I had a lot of success with the "Lose It" app. The biggest thing is accurately logging what you eat, which requires eating everything from a box or using a food scale. I picked up a $15 scale on Amazon and just weigh all of the major components of a meal and log it.

    The Krotsman idea sounds good to me---at least something I could stick to---not really overweight but I'd like to loose this "early stuffed holiday feeling"---good luck
    an Happy Holidays to all!!!

    I don't do anything fancy with times and stuff. I usually eat a 6 inch subway turkey sub with lots of vegetables and mustard, no cheese or mayo, for lunch and dinner. iIs a bit more than 500 calories total, but it's under 600. Then I eat basically whatever I want the other days, maybe trying to moderate a bit, You tend not to eat as much on off days, too, because you're thinking about it. Hell, I even occasionally hit a buffet and still lose weight.

    Or you can just eat right and do moderate exercising 3 times a week.

    fasting is a short term goal and you will just put back on pounds quicker, as your body is going to store more fat from anything you eat as it thinks you are starving. Not a really good thing to do.

    low carbs, fruits and vegetables, and protein. Cut out sugar, and trans fats and you will keep weight off.


    it’s easier said then done but it is what it is.

    You should check up on your research a bit relative to intermittent fasting and the benefits related to it. There are a ton of studies that point towards IF being very good for you. Also, many studies are finding that extended fasts are actually beneficial and work almost as a cleanse for your body. The old idea of your body going into "starvation mode" and wanting to store everything as fat doesn't really hold as 100% truth like people used to be taught.

    At the end of the day, it absolutely doesn't matter what you eat if you want to lose weight. It matters how much you eat.

    If you eat 2000 calories of doughnuts every day and burn 2200 calories, you will lose weight. Conversely, if you eat the same thing and burn 1500 calories, you will likely gain weight. Of course, simply eating doughnuts (or any one food) is not nutritious and isn't sustainable.
