Hi. This method of weight loss is very interesting. You can eat anything 8 hours and then break 16 hours (you can drink water or vegetable juices). Here two weeks have passed and the result is remarkable, minus 4 kg. It is especially difficult to rebuild in the first days. It's been great in a week. Who will say what about this method and what are your results?

It is interesting. Would love to hear how it goes after another week and another...

I was looking into this. Great to see you share your experience with it.

Do you feel hungry on it?
What are the cons you experienced?

In the first days I wanted to eat just monstrously, drank water and held on, and on the third day it became easier.
Cons - it's only difficult to rebuild, and otherwise only the pros
I used to stick to other diets, such as a keto diet or even spent money and bought a diet called keto fit pro, everywhere it was advertised, but everywhere there were many strong restrictions, and I was lazy and so I found this option

Thanks for your reply. I'm looking forward to see your future updates, hope it goes well.

It's called intermittent fasting and hands down the most optimal way to lose weight. I work out in the morning and actually perform better on an empty stomach as well.

Please bare in mind that you have made a mistake here. You should not eat anything you want in your eating window. Your body will gain weight if you eat too many calories, as always.

Additionally in the 'fasting' window. You should not consume any calories (vegetable juices included).

The main reason the structure of IF works is because you skip 1 meal a day (usually breakfast) and thus consume less calories because you have a shorter time to eat in.

I've been eating like this for years. It really works well for my lifestyle.

I would do some more research as you seem confused on the protocol.

Same. I work out on an empty stomach and find I work out much better and actually eat less afterwards. I did IF 12 months ago to give my body bit of a weight loss jolt and it worked well. I went from 91 down to 80kg over 6 weeks I believe it was. Now, thanks to the 75 day challenge, I got myself down to 74.5kg and looking to build muscle back up!

I agree with you, but at first it is very difficult, but every day I eat less and less and the result is better and better

I've been doing it for over a year now. My favourite thing is the extra time I have in the mornings from not needing to have breakfast. I've started following the leangains diet with IF and that's helping shed the last bits of bodyfat and also gaining some muscle.

This ^^^ Other than that, from what I've read, it's all about calories in/calories out, and it doesn't seem to matter when you have them. But fasting will help eating less, so overall it tends to work.

Does it work so well? And you are completely accustomed to that? Can you forward your diet charts?

Intermittent Fasting is an awesome example of great marketing.

Weight loss is all a result of caloric deficit, not because of your meals' timing.

The reason why IF "works" is because you skip breakfast and do not eat until lunch (if you do the standard 16/8). In other words, you skip around 250-500 calories on average. That's why. Not because of some underlying magic they try to make you believe.

I integrate it alongside a protein-focused ketogenic-style diet (low carb.)

I have lost over 120lbs, more than 50kg, over the past few years.

My personal opinion is this:
Is Intermittent Fasting magic? No.

Is it a fantastic way of managing your calories to ensure that you're only eating within a controlled eating window? Yes!

I used to snack all the damn time. I would also have breakfast, and then I'd have lunch, dinner, and 'supper'.

With IF I simply have a good-sized lunch, snacks within the eating window, a good-sized dinner with a dessert, and then not eat anything for 16-ish hours.
