Please Ė feedback on my first IF day
Iím trying IF for the first time. This is what happened during day 1:

I had coffee 9a and fasted until 11:45a.
1st meal: 3 eggs, 3 slices turkey bacon, coffee (is that enough?)
Snacks/ no real second meal: Two apples throughout the day, 1 atkins bar
3rd meal 8:30p: Beef stew (just the beef, good portion of it), mushrooms, sugar free ice cream.

Here is my problem that makes me nervous: I was completely starving before each meal. Maybe this takes some adjustment, but that makes me feel Iíll lose control one day. Once I got home, I wanted to eat EVERYTHING on the counter top. I wont, but thatís the feeling I felt before dinner. I felt full as if I overdid dinner/dessert. As the weeks go on, I will completely shorten my window. I told myself I would start 8.5/16.5 for the first week.

Is this correct for day 1?

Hi! I just bought the IF book so it is good to see someone here who is also trying it. I have never been much of a breakfast person, so this sounds like it fits right in my lifestyle. I think maybe you just have to get used to it.

I'm not on a specific eating plan (that I know of--it may be called something) other than eliminating fried foods, processed flour, sugar, and red meat, and making it a point to eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables, fish, and chicken (grilled or baked).

I think you'll do just fine!

Millena, I don't think your meal plan for that day qualifies as being IF.
