Very happy to find this site

I am Julie, an IF and low carber. I started my journey first as low carb in 2006 and went from 249 to 165 today I am 190. After a few stressful events(death in family and job loss) in my life I am back on track including intermittent fasting with low carb after reading the emergency diet book. I found that I can consistently lose between .8 and .6 pounds every other IF day. At first it was difficult to do the IF day and also cut the carbs, but I feel so much better on this diet. I found the IF day a challenge but keep telling myself that the next day I can eat the low carb without counting calories...
The basics of this diet
all days (20 or less carbs)
day one IF - equal or lower than 400 calories
day two low carb no calorie counting

Typical menus:
Day one:
coffee (with coffee creamer (powder 4 tsp))
around 10:30 chew some SF gum
broth for lunch
between meals (water or some type of crystal light drink)
just when I am getting hungry for dinner I have a SF cola type drink
dinner 2 eggs with Waldens on the side
black coffee

Day two:
breakfast - coffee/creamer, bacon, eggs
lunch - burger (or other meat)
dinner - steak, salmon...etc
with small salad(olive oil, red wine vinegar) with either dinner/lunch
SF LC chocolate for dessert or homemade LC SF cheesecake

vitamins - B-complex, Vit D, Omega-3, reservatol, turmeric, coconut oil

6am to 6pm --eat
6pm to 6am --no eating, water only

Thanks for this site and its support!
