    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.
    I’m not sure that is correct but don’t have enough personal experience to say for sure. My goal isn’t weight loss (but if I drop a few pounds in the process it would be great), it’s actually the many other health benefits that come along with intermittent fasting. Now are the current studies overhyped? (Possibly so).

    I have four very close friends in two different medical schools right now, and they are actually teaching soon to be doctors the benefits of it.

    I've done a ton of research in it and almost everyone out there agrees that IF is very beneficial.

    I don't think the newer studies are over hyped. Fasting reduces the amount of money we spend on food.

    So this isn't in the interest of big business nor the medical establishment
    Which profits from you being sick and fat.

    I do IF. I find it keeps my rating in check. I have lost weight in the process.

    I don't eat before 10 am then I try and not eat after 7 pm. Nothing changed until I started drinking at least a gallon of water a day.
    Felt much better and dropped weight once I started with the water.

    I’d like to add that fasting intermittently isn’t a short term fix or something that’s done periodically (although people misuse it for those purposes).

    While it does help with over eating and what not it also give gut microbes time to work within their *cycle.* From some research it seems they’re only active for up to 10 hours at most. So, when you start eating for the day, they activate and will remain active for 10 hours. IF helps with insulin levels, and if you get it down to about 8-9 hours it’s shown to help keep/increase lean mass.

    Thats just a real general summary but if ya want good info from a real scientist and not gym rats, listen/read stuff from Dr Rhonda Patrick.

    Check out DR Fung and let him explain all the health benefits from intermittent fasting. Esp for people who may be diabetic.

    I'm down 100 pounds doing OMAD, eating good food, and a lot of it, no sugar. I got off track and put 7 pounds back on, now back on track going for another 40lbs and I should be golden.

    I did IF/Keto back in January 2019 as a new years resolution. I've never dropped weight so fast and easy. I went from 230 to 180 in 6 months. Was eating between 12-8 and was on a strict keto diet keeping my net carbs under 20 per day.

    I didn't notice any of the health benefits people said about IF or keto but I wasn't ever super hungry either. Of course when I quit the diet I gained some of the weight back and hovered between 190 and 195 up until February 2020 just eating like normal. Now with the working from home I've put on a bit of quarantine weight so I think I need to get back on it.

    Like all diets, it's all about calories in < calories out. IF helps restrict your calories and also helps restrict late night eating. Keto was helpful b/c being such a high protein diet the meals stuck with me long enough to keep me full and not hungry so I wasn't snacking. So the two combined were a pretty good deal at least for me.
