    Anyone here ever try intermittent fasting? I did it for a solid 9 months. Lost some weight. My blood pressure improved along with my cholesterol and pre-diabetic numbers, but I hit a plateau after about 6 months with weight loss. I was fasting around 19 hours a day only during the week. Summer came around and I stopped, but about to startup again. What’s been your experience?

    I just started it about 10 days ago. Eat at my meals between noon and 8 pm and then fast over night and in the morning. So far so good but this weekend will be tough, will be in a cocktail heavy environment.

    Anxious to see what the results are in a few months.

    I've been doing 16/8. Eh... Some say no treats after 6pm but if your going to restrict eating to 8 hrs, don't tell me what I have to eat on top of it.. Lol

    Best of luck. I felt it was easy to do and had good results.

    I've been unintentionally doing it since I was a freshman in highschool. The medication I took on academic weeks killed my appetite so I just wouldn't eat lunch when I was in regular classes, I wouldn't take my meds on shop weeks where I was studying landscaping and working my ass off so I'd eat a ton on those weeks. I'm 5'11" and was about 170-180 throughout highschool. Graduated in 2018 and stopped taking my medication for ADD and just kept the habit of really only eating a lot every other week. I've stayed a consistent 180-190 for the past year but that's probably just my metabolism slowing down or I've been building a bit more muscle. I remember reading about intermittent fasting back in school and realized it was basically the same thing my meds were making me do anyways. few years later and the habits still there

    I do it and have done it for over 2 years. I didn't do it for weight loss but just to feel better and I like the ideas behind it.

    You might have stopped losing weight do to your body adjusting to not eating. Your body then wants to store fat because it doesnt know when it is going to eat again.

    Check out Dr. Eric Berg on youtube. And if you want to ramp it up further maybe give Keto a try. I now do some 24 hour fasts and try to eat a ketogenic diet most of the time. One meal a day has a lot of advantages for me.

    Thought about it. I did Keto for months about a year ago and it was ok. I feel like exercising regularly and cutting sugars, watching carbs is the best way to get to and maintain an ideal weight.
    No one likes being told what to eat or when to eat it. Lifestyle changes for the short term that evolve into long term habits.

    My brother is on a OMAD schedule... One Meal A Day. I do a 18/6. None of it really makes a difference unless you are committed to the fasting time (absolutely NOTHING but water). When you do this the right way the results are phenomenal. The entire purpose of this is the let the body use the stored resources within itself by denying any excess meals or snacks. Whenever ANYTHING other than water is put in your system, your insulin spikes and your body shuts down digestive actions and puts the machine into consume and storage of fuel mode. You train your body to use what it has, and complete it's tasks (digestion, metabolic burns, muscle growth). Because you give it time to do this without stuffing the bird with useless calories that it doesn't need, the body becomes incredibly efficient at these tasks and the results are: less unnecessary weight, better sleep, lower BP, less bowel movements, more energy. Just to name a few.

    I've had really good luck with it, I just make sure that I drink plenty of water during my fasting period. I also do a good bit of cardio to go with it, which has also really helped. I haven't seen more than a ten pound difference on the scale, but my overall health has increased along with muscle mass. But I'm just a 25 year old meat head so take it with a grain of salt.

    Haven’t done intermittent but do fast. Usually 7-9 times a year 48-72 hours. I have been doing it for 7 years. I always feel better after I fast. I lost about 30lbs the first year I did it. I went down another 15 after that but felt underweight so I cut back from every month to most months.
    It was an adjustment when I first started. Once I figured out they were not going to stop making cheeseburgers it got easier :rofl:
    The upsides are great more energy. Less appetite and a good will power test.

    I do hear a lot of people combine fasting with keto. My only concern is the lack of fiber and other nutrients when doing keto. I did Atkins many years ago and I did shred some fat, but got tired of the eggs, bacon, cheese etc.

    Yes. Starve ur body; which in turn, holds fat longer as it chips away at it. Lack of proper nutrition etc. unless it’s religious based, I say no

    I have heard it may not be good for people who are advanced in age with severe health issues who may require meds to keep the engine running.

    You can eat plenty of fiber. All leafy greens and dark greens have fiber. Cauliflower

    You’re not really holding back on proper nutrition. You have a window to consume your nutrition. Outside of that window your body is busy processing and rebuilding. Lots of good info out there on this.

    I’ve always felt that reality was just for people who cannot handle drugs and alcohol. Besides, facts are more important than the truth any day.

    To send your body into a state of ketosis is dangerous. 5 years from now, we will all be wondering why we even entertained the idea. Everyone wants a shortcut around burning energy through exercise. Human nature (including mine). But the fact is, if you consume less calories than you burn through exercise, you will boost your metabolism, lose weight, and feel better. Burning calories through starvation and ketosis is unhealthy, especially to your nervous system, which regulates every other system in your body.

    Dr Jason Fung has tons of research showing that IM is not only healthy but ideal for the body.

    It is not starvation if you eat nutritious food for meals.

    Intermittent fasting is amazing. 16/8 schedule is easiest to do. Ive found that it is only sustainable on a high fat low carb diet. No grains, no sugars.

    Funny you say that. My friend has been in ketosis for about 5 years. They are using him in a study.

    This is a short term thing. What happens is that eventually you eat more because your insulin is being pegged up constantly. Your body cannot burn fat reserves when insulin is in the blood.

    Ur body literally eats preserves for nutrition to feed the brain, blood flow, etc.

    High fat, no carbs, sugar would be a keto diet

    I was overweight for numerous years. Got my shit in check, and I was stage a couple months later and did great. I get it. I get it all- as someone who struggled with nutrition for years, I can tell u he’s full of shit. I’ll stand by it all day long.
