The big breakfast meal is really the key for me. I love getting up and not having to wait to eat a rm. I am still going strong. Anyone eating a big breakfast meal here?

Oriana, I just got a notice that the book came in from the library, so I'll be reading it. I'd like to pick a day to try it, but I'm not ready yet. For now I'm eating a 400 calorie breakfast and a "large lunch" as MIW says. I'm following your progress, though! Do you have all your food cooked in advance? I think that would be the key to eating before 9 am.

I am up a couple of pounds to 215.4 lbs today but I attribute that to eating salty meats last 2 days. I am sticking with the early meal and now most days 9:30am I am done.

Not sure if anyone is still here doing Fast 5 I have been doing this for the past 3 weeks. My eating window is 3:30-8:30 (or so) BUT I only do fast 5 on work days. That's just what I decided would work for me and not go continually off plan on weekends. If I make it part of my plan to eat whenever on weekends then I didn't go off plan

That being said I am a pretty healthy eater so I don't eat much junk but I want the option to if the occasion arises (does it sound like I want my cake and eat it, too?) I also love wine so I can have that within 5 hour window.

So far I've lost 5 lbs, 3 of which was the first week then no loss until this morning. So it may be slow going but I remember reading that the losses start after about 3 weeks, so hopefully this will happen.

I'm giving it a go and have resolved to be patient, because any other plan I try I give up because I feel deprived in one way or another. With Fast 5 it has worked for me to just say I can whatever I want when I get home. And I usually don't end up overdoing it anyway. And it works for most social situations (another plan derailer for me)

Hopefully there are some Fast 5ers still out there! Makingitwork, if you don't mind me posting this on your One meal a day thread I would love to join you there (even tho I don't just have one meal a day).

Best to all!

I posted this over on the Fast 5 thread but it's pretty quiet over there so I hope you don't mind me joining you here! I Fast 5 Mon-Fri only. My hope is to lose at least one lb. a week. I try to stay mostly LC in my eating window but so far it I haven't truly been LC. I usually have wine in the evening and there have been a couple of popcorn incidents!! On the weekend I have whatever, whenever but I really don't go too overboard. I think this is the only way I can stick to a plan. We'll see how it goes, I know it will be slow.

You can post and join anywhere. Not sure if I answered here or the other thread but one meal a day is not something you have to follow religiously. It is used by many types for intermittent fasting, and instead of having many small meals throughout the day (bad for those of us with hyperinsulinemia) you have one big meal, and if needed, other small ones that are low carb. It is basically the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet but I have found most days I can go a complete 23 hours without eating and just eat my entire day's supply of calories AND carbs and still lose weight and control hunger!!! It is awesome! No cravings for sweets/chocolate either because I eat those foods each and every day in my one hour time frame along with enough protein/fat and veggies. I am actually eating MORE fruits and veggies and good protein sources and the SAME amount of carbs as always and still slowly losing weight instead of just maintaining or gaining. I am a true believer after 11 months of doing this and losing 20 pounds eating 1800-2600 calories a day and 100-300 grams of carbs.

I went a little outside my window last night because I went to my Bible Study (2 hrs. in the middle of my window) so I had some sunflower seeds and a glass of wine when I got home (and yes, I can eat enough sunflower that the calories count)

MIW-boy do your meals sound yummy! Love me a big juicy ribeye!!

Thought I would clarify in case some people are following this thread that I do have a couple big mugs of coffee w/ 4 Tbl. 1/2 & 1/2 in the morning and some broth (10 cals/cup) in the morn and sometimes at lunch if needed. The salt seems to help the sour tummy feeling I sometimes get when my tummy is empty.

Ok everyone, today is MAJOR bragging rights day for me.

Today I am 211.8 lbs. That is my lowest weight in over 7 years. I also rechecked my measurements and lost another 1/2 inch off my waist and hips and 1/4 inch off my thighs.

The last time I weighed this much was my first year on the dog sledding trails in Canada. I have done WW, Zone, JC, juicing, whole foods, the pH diet (eating more alkaline foods) all in that time frame and the lowest I got with that was 213-217. I can say I finally busted through that several month long plateau. I kind of figured my body had that weight range as a "set point" because that had been my lowest weight in the last few years. I expect to see "set points" at 200, 195, and 180 because those are other milestone weights I had got to in the last 15 years and was able to stay at for over a year or more and I do think the body has a memory on those things.

I have recently switched my RM early morning. I still do one meal only most days, and try to have a CM snack (if I need it) before 3pm. This is based off of The Big Breakfast Diet that the Heller's recommended in their The Stress Eating Cure book. However, I still follow CAD/CALP rules and stick to one hour, "aim" for balance. I do eat my entire day's calories (usually) in my one RM, so we are talking 1800-2600 calories most days with 100-300gms carbs. I do not think of myself as a binge eater but I do know this is MUCH different than how I ate for my entire life leading up to this point and probably way more food in one sitting than a lot of other folks. But, I want to share my success at doing HIGH CALORIE eating because that is what I set out to prove if it could be done or not and I can see that it CAN be done!

Wow, congratulations!

One meal at night works very slowly for me and I know switching it to the morning would speed things up tremendously, but I just can't get past being hungry in the evening.

Do you work late or are you eating all this stuff at work?

I am lucky I only work 2 days a week so it is easier for me to do this at home. This is my 3rd try at doing my one meal a day early but I have been doing it for over a week and now can go 23 hours with only eating and being done most days by 10am. I am seeing loses way faster and I won't lie, it was a bit different but I found the trick is to eat at least 7 ounces (not grams) of protein/fat and that is what control the hunger. I eat as many carbs as I want otherwise and am done in a one hour time frame and NO huger the rest of the day! I even wake up hungry now! LOL

Ok just updated my profile picture. Goodbye soaps and only one person here ever got it right what it was! LOL

That pic is one of my more recent favorites from about 7 years ago when I weighed 207-212 lb range which is near where I am at currently. My hair was dyed blonde there and now is my natural brunette but you get the idea. I am 5' 2.5" and have always been big busted, wide hips and shoulders. Pretty sexy huh? LOL

Looking good, MIW!

So the big breakfast appears to be successful, eh? My routine is eating right when I get home from work around 3:30pm--I'd love to try eating the RW before work, but am afraid I'd end up eating 2 big meals, out of habit for eating when I get home. I'll give it a shot tomorrow and see what happens. There are many days I crave a big cheeseburger at 5 in the morning!

If you wake up hungry you could benefit from this as it is your body's natural rythm and I have been told it means your cortisol level is low which is good! Also- just be sure to eat eat eat till you are really full and get AT LEAST 7 OUNCES of protein: a large steak, OR 3 eggs and 4 pc bacon, OR 2 cans tuna and lots of mayo, etc etc. Not getting enough protein (and fatty seems better) will be the downfall as you will crash later! However you can still eat later if you need to. I have found how to eat like this and have carry over the other 23 hours so for me it is working. The other 2 attempts I tried over the last 3 months I just wasn't eating enough food nor the required 7 ounces to have it work and I would get voracious later so watch out!

Well, I had a big hamburger and 2 fried eggs for breakfast yesterday...and was sooooo full--felt good all day long. Then I messed up big time by caving into some ice cream when I got home from work. Felt guilty about that, then talked myself into having 2 scrambled eggs w/cheese. grrr.

Funny thing though...I weighed the night before, and today--no change on the scale. I think this big breakfast thing might be something to work harder on. I don't even think I was "hungry"...just fell into the habit of eating, or bored.

Will try, try again!

I know a gal who would eat ice cream for another meal and still lose! She thinks it had to do with the high fat content. If you need another meal go ahead and eat- I'd just be sure to confine carbs to one meal a day and the other to be protein and veggies. Don't worry though, if it is working run with it and find a plan that works for you!

I think I should join you posting what I eat. I think IF is the way to go for me- I don't have time to eat during the day at work anyway and even if I get hungry I am so busy it is no big deal to power through.

This was yesterday (Thursday):

7:00 coffee with butter & MCT oil

4:00 protein smoothie with Jay Robb pp, coconut milk, scoop of greens powder, MCT oil, and frozen berries.

7:00 cheese & tomato sandwich on Udi's, left over enchiladas, gf cupcake, beet chips & chocolate covered almonds and cherries.

I usually eat a better dinner than that, but no one was home and I ate on the couch watching Seinfeld.

The afternoon smoothie seems to help because I am not overly hungry when I get home. The real challenge for me is the weekend.

6:00 couple handfuls of trail mix (waiting for DH to het ready to go to dinner)

7:30 green salad and 3 slices gf pizza, 3 sour gummy rings

I'm not getting the protein food in like you are. I get about 18-20 grams in my smoothie, then there was meat and cheese on the pizza. I'm not overly hungry during the day though so maybe it is enough.

So are you eating at those times? That seems like you are eating spaced out over 12 hours??? That is how I used to eat but now to minimize release of insulin and deter fat storage for intermittent fasting I may eat breakfast by 9am and try to eat again and be done by 1pm (so start eating one meal at 8am and if I need to eat again do so at 12) that way my total "eating window" is over a 5 hour period. Then no eating again until the next days. But that is only if I need to eat again. Most days I only eat the one time in a one hour timeframe. I do have rare days where I need to eat again later and outside of the 5 hour timeframe but I rarely do that.

I am doing fat outside my window (hence the mocha) and "opening" my eating window with the smoothie while I am still at work. It gives me a good shot of protein and nutrition (I add a lot of my supplements to it) and keeps me from being famished when I hit the front door. It gives me some energy to run after work too before I get home to have dinner. I can do a lot of things in a fasted state, but running is tough for me (I also can't run full). Then I try to finish eating by 8:00 for a 4 hour window. Aside from the few berries in the protein shake and cream in my morning coffee, all the carbs are at my main meal and eaten within an hour.

We'll see if it works. If not, I've got somewhere to go.

Hi all. Still here. Up just 0.16 pounds this week but started TOM and usually GAIN over a pound so I am extactic with this amount! My weight all week was 212 "point something" and I don't think I ever had a single week where I had such minimal fluctuation of weight. Most weeks I would see a 2 pound difference in weights usually 2 or more times that week so to be 212.... each day was interesting. When I get caught up I will post my weekly avg list for all to see. I cannot believe this WOE it still blows my mind how well I eat and don't feel deprived and the weight just keeps slowly burning itself off!!!

Ok everyone, here is my "almost" entire year's worth of daily, weekly, AND monthly averages. You can see I am losing only a bit more than a 1/4 of a pound a week the last few months on average but no matter how you analyze my averages, my weight is going down down down ever so slowly. I keep getting encouragement from a gal I know only via emails who has done one meal a day for years now that there will be way less saggy skin this way so I am happy about that. Plus I truely do not feel like I am on a diet! The one month where I actually saw a gain was during the vacation where I took 4 days off so that kind of messed with things and those 4 days took my body 16 to get back on track so I won't ever make that mistake again!!! That even includes me NOT recording those daily wts until I got back into the same zone I was in when I left so mega-yikes...

MIW, those numbers are impressive, especially when you look at the big picture--1/4 pound here and there adds up! Nice work!!

Oh, and I'm finally getting the hang of the big breakfast--I actually had a whoosh on Sunday, but it's TOM this week so I'm not going to jump for joy yet! But was soooo nice to see! I'm slowly learning to ditch my creature of habit way of eating--I'm finding other ways to keep me busy when I would normally eat my dinner--and when I do have a snack outside of that big breakfast, it's a protein w/fat.

I've been doing intermittent fasting for the past 3 years.

Doing so, I've managed to stay very learn... even without doing cardio. Last year, I got down to under 5% bodyfat (and have pictures from that time). Since then, I maintained about 10% bodyfat year-round... until I cut calories 2 months ago (~ I got leaner as a result). I'm definitely a fan of its simplicity (though I do struggle to eat enough to match my caloric expenditure).

Narkissos, what is a typical meal plan for you (including the IF'ing)?
