Intermittent Fasting - 2018!!

Hi everyone!! I have been here on the boards a few times in the past...but I just restarted Low Carb on this last Sunday, January 7th, 2018. And starting intermittent fasting 16:8 today! (First time fasting). ������

I hope others can let me know progress they are having with IF and successes! I am very excited about this way of life! I have been through a lot last year, well actually, last 4 years, physically, and I know this is my time. Thus is the year. I will not fail. Because I know, if I could quit what I quit last year, I can do anything. ��������


So please all, I can't wait to keep enjoying this trip with everyone and look forward to your positive comments and posts!! ��

Much love!

Amber 273/250/175 ✌️✌️✌️��

I am a 16-8 girl most days

I find if I cut my food off after my 5pm meal I have more energy the next morning to work out.!

WOE: LC & IF 16:8
I do a minimum of 16:8. I used to be one of those people that forced myself to eat breakfast because 'they' said you were supposed to. Now I simply eat when I am ready (which is usually around 1PM) and then I make sure I am done with my evening snack by 9PM. Easy peasy.

Once I got that in a routine, I found it easy to even go 18:6 or 20:4 sometimes by eating my snack earlier. I think it has helped boost my rate of weight loss in combination with my LC WOE.

Awesome - how are all your results with the IF? Have you all done it from the beginning of going low carb?

I find the minute I tell anyone I'm doing IF they are quick to judge...I guess it's something I can only share here!

My first full day of doing it went great, I actually felt really alert the last couple hours of it.

Thx for the link PrincessBrendag, I'm going to take a look st it now! I find myself obsessing with watching YouTube vids of the journey of other IFers!

I tried IF but didn't stick with it. I was getting good results though. I'll give it another go by eating between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. I only get into trouble if I eat anything after 7:00 p.m. anyway!

Maria527- yes I hear and see the good results with IF, it sure is a change in a system of estimated. I find I usually fast normally, but end maybe 3 hours earlier then my 16:8. I think it's kind if like working out, where when we push a little more, work a little harder then we get even more amazing results! ��

I did low carb for the first 3 months and then LC/OMAD for the remaining 6 months...I didnt lose more by doing that but the reason I changed to IF was because I can eat a lot at one time so to just have one meal was the best choice for me

sounds a lot like my story, started Keto and over about six weeks I narrowed my meals down to just one which made the fat come off quicker. when I started extended fasting on week ends weight started melting off this last month or so. 40 lbs since thanksgiving. I try to not go too crazy and walk a fine line but I feel good and no fainting spells or anything adverse. just staying true to my process that I have been following weekly, don't fix what is not broke

By extended fasting do you mean no eating at all on the weekends?

I've been doing 16/8 intermittent fasting since 10/1. I can't believe how well it's working for me. I still have a ways to go with keto, but I finally get that it's not about the calories. My weight has really stabilized since I've been doing IF. And my cravings are GONE!

I have been doing the 16:8 for about 10 days now. It was hard at first but I am now settling in. I find I am not hungry and do not obsess over food. I only weigh myself twice a month so I don't know the pounds lost, but it is substantial. I can tell by the way my clothes are fitting.

So exciting to see all your results from IF,

Brenda - I must check into Omad because I don't know much about that type of fasting. Which IF are you doing now? 16/8 etc..? I am sane with the one meal thing, that's why I'm now changing to 18/6, it's easier for me to just deal with k e meal and a couple lil snacks.

Jshaf - soooooo amazing 40lbs!! I feel I need to stick with my 16/8 or just changed to 18/6 because I dont think I could do the whole weekend because I am extremely active in my job, it's very physically taxing. I think I need food for it lol!

Shirl , Stevie - I love that clothes are looser and craving are gone! I find that my face has shrunk since suddenly yesterday! Lol It's crazy how you'll just be chugging along then bam! something very noticeable happens. I love it

What I love most about IF is just knowing that the longer I push thru the hours of not eating, until eating again, that I'm just burning pure fat. And eating no sugar as well, it's doing double work!!

WOE: Low carb/DDD/IF
I have started intermittent fasting/OMAD on the day after Thanksgiving. I fast for a minimum of 22 hours daily with only water, black coffee, or black tea. No artificial sweeteners at all during the fast. In my one meal a day I have anything I want. No more counting calories or carbs. I probably could lose more if I watched my carbs, and it was a struggle to get back to allowing myself to eat carbs again. A good book on the subject is "Delay Don't Deny" by Gin Stephens. She also wrote a book called "Feast Without Fear", and has 2 facebook groups.This plan has changed my life! If I stall I will probably do low carb as my one meal a day and am glad to have learned the ins and outs of low carb from this group.
