Not intentionally, but I may go 18-20 hours without eating just because I'm not hungry and don't think about it.

Not normally. I hear it has many benefits such as getting the body to repair things that it might otherwise plan to just replace. But I have reservations about going too long without good, complete protein intake.

I've read a lot about it on mark's daily apple. I don't know if I really want to do that. I'd much rather eat when I'm hungry. Sometimes I skip meals because I'm not hungry, but I don't think that's fasting. Anyway, I have heard good things about it. Let us know how you do, Kerry!!

I responded to you in another post, Kerry, but I will do it here, as well.

Through intermittent fasting, I have lost approximately 10 pounds in less than a month. Sure, it is some water weight, but what I REALLY like is that I am also a weightlifter and my lifts AND body measurements (the good ones, not my waist, lol) have increased. In other words, I am gaining muscle and losing fat, which is VERY difficult to do at the same time.

Obviously, I also watch my macronutrient intake and choose to go paleo (which I have been doing since May). I don't eat anything processed and keep my carbs fairly low. I usually fast for 16 hours, from 8:30pm until 12:30pm the next day. It is not difficult, and this is coming from a former BIG eater. You get used to it. I feel energized. I have IBS and the symptoms are so much less than what they used to be.

It's no cure all, but it works for some people. I am one of those, I guess. For anyone who prefers to eat all of their meals in a relatively small window of time (and doesn't care much for breakfast in the morning), this may be the way to go for you.

Yes and no. Not intentional structured IF, but I tend to only eat twice a day, usually 15-16 hours between last meal and first meal the next day.
