I have been trying this out for two weeks and really am getting into it!

I eat dinner and that is it. Not doing the 16/8 version that is so popular. I want to jump right into the advanced level. No snack. No breakfast or lunch. Water, Topo Chico and green tea. Then when dinner comes I dont go hog wild. Just try to eat real food and in normal amount. Real food meaning not from a box. Salmon, spinach and a baked potatoes have been my go to.

The hunger comes in waves but passes pretty quick. I had tried carnivore, low cal/low fat, keto and they all work for a period. Two weeks into this experiment and down 11 lbs. Hoping this is something that I can adjust to doing longer term. Once you get "use" to it...its manageable. I actually feel sharper actually! Physically and mentally. But I wont lie... you can feel the hunger at times. Gotta work through it.

I read a great book by Dr. Jason Fung called "The Obesity Code" that was really informative. Lots of data based on the best research out there. Its not too dry and gives you a really well rounded understanding of body weight and how its regulated. And get this... he says that calories do not make you fat, insulin does!

Anyone read this book or have any experience with fasting for health and weight loss?

I started out two weeks ago at 243. I am at 232 now. Ideally 215-220 is a good place for me to be. So about another 15lbs roughly.

I am 6'4.

So far so good! I really got used to the not eating after a week or so. Lots of Topo Chico, green tea and water with lemon can make you feel full. The hunger comes in waves. After a 5 minutes it passes and might not come back for a few hours or more.

I feel pretty good and weight is still coming off albeit more slowly now.

Makes you really excited about dinner and making sure whatever it is you do eat is excellent. I am not being too restrictive on what I eat other than staying away from the obvious; added sugars and highly processed foods. Just eating real food. I have also found I feel "fuller" more quickly than I thought.

Its really about keeping blood sugar low and consistent and not spiking insulin levels all day. Just doing it once a day.

Again for info I suggest reading or listening to Dr. Fungs book. Its not fringe stuff. He is a respected guy. He has the data and studies etc. that show this is healthy, normal for humans (to limit feeding windows and not always be eating from sunrise to bed) and works for weight loss and offers many other health benefits.

Good job, Danno. I'll get back to the IF as soon as we move outta the house and into apt. If I'm gonna be gazing at the young wimmins at poolside in our new place, I want them gazing back at this fat, hairy legged, beer bellied, gray haired wanna be GQ.

Keep up the good!

If you can reverse when you're eating, things might change quicker. We burn more calories during sleep than you think. A 200lb man can burn up to 450-600 calories during sleep.

Eat a late breakfast and early lunch then nothing for dinner. Your body will be hungry during sleep and that's how calories are burnt.

I'm doing a healthy keto plus intermittent fasting and can feel a difference after the first week. Stay off the scales, it's all about inches lost.

Yo thanks for the advice Roller! What I am doing works for me in that I can have dinner with the wife.

Did a 48 hour fast that I broke yesterday at dinner. I wont lie...that was hard. The 24 hours I have been doing is not cake but got to be pretty easy. The 48 was different. I did not feel great and even after eating still feeling a little meh. Think I am going to stick to the 24 and mix in some 16/8 here and there.

Its really made life simple... you only have to plan for one meal a day!

The scale is just one tool as mentioned. But mine this morning shows 230. So down 13lbs in 16 days. I can almost see my goal of 220. I am thinking this is a little fast to lose that much but outside of the "fasting flu" I had toward the end of the 48 hour fast I have felt just fine. Blood pressure is normal, heart rate is normal, nothing outside of norm.

I would suggest folks research this and give it a go! Its really not that hard once you get a few days in. The 48 hour deal... thats another story but one meal a day is not too hard.

Thank you sir!

I am sure they will be all over you! Big personality gets the women. Look at that Pete Davidson guy... he looks like someone plucked big bird but he gets all the ladies. Big personality.

Dan your statement about "Its really made life simple... you only have to plan for one meal a day!" is so true. I have a egg, sausage and cheese soft taco for breakfast and then a sensible meal for lunch. Wife and I both like not having to worry about supper.

Keep it up.

Thanks you sir! Sounds like you and the wife found something that works for you! One of the cool things about this is it does offer you a lot of ways to approach the plan and still get results on the scale and be healthier!

The first person who I saw this really work for, first time I heard of it really, was from a friend I worked with some years back who after her second child really got into shape fast!

She told me all she did was eat whatever she felt like from 6am to noon so breakfast and lunch, of course not pigging out just eating until full, and then not eat again until the next morning. Sounded crazy to me at the time but turns out she was just ahead of the curve actually. She was doing an 18/6 and did not even know it. How do you like that.

I guess what I have been doing is considered intermittent fasting. I have been eating 2 or 3 meals (healthy) a day, with my first meal at 11:00 am and last meal by 6 or 7:00 pm. No snacks in between and way less beer. I’ve lost 55 lbs in 6 months. Not sure if it’s the fact I eat mostly chicken, fish, veggies and egg whites or the time frame I’m eating but it has worked. No more weight loss as I’m 170lbs now so been hitting the weights much harder.

So since about the end of last August I've been doing it - No breakfast, maybe a slimjim for lunch, then dinner. My problem is sweets... There's always something sitting on the counter. Anyways - I've lost about 25 pounds, just by cutting lunch out. Before we were eating huge take-out lunches. I think once it warms up I'm going to start riding again and try to get back in to the low 200's.

Starting in 2016 I went from 270, got down to about 210 and stayed around 220 till covid, then gradually got back up to 270 last Aug... Being healthy is tough working and raising kids full time.

Good luck to all of y’all. I’ve finally started my IF again on Monday. 4th day and already feel better. Got a ways to go, though. Weight is embarrassingly at 240lbs.

I’ve done 3 day fasts, water only, several times when I’ve gone through my dieting phases

After the first day, your body gets used to the hunger pangs and by the third day, it’s not bad at all.

Being lightheaded is a problem though
