My “turning point” was June of 2018 and I was so uncomfortable in my own skin and my clothes had gotten tight...again (3XB shirts that I had to buy just a few months earlier). I decided to try Intermittent Fasting based on advice from a good friend who has been bodybuilding for decades. I started at 330.2 pounds on July 1, 2018. I started with 16/8 (fasting for 16 hours and eating all of my calories in an 8 hour window) daily and was highly motivated which helped get through the initial retraining of my habits (snacking throughout the day, 3 big meals and eating a lot of processed food). It became a “less hard” than easier...than just the way I live my life. I slowly moved from 16/8 to 18/6 and then 20/4 to my current 22-24 hour per day OMAD schedule.
I’ve been doing some duration of IF daily for almost 18 months now and have lost 167.2 pounds as of this morning-12/12/2019 (from 330.2 pounds to 163.0 pounds at 6’3”). I am still working on reducing my body fat % and getting healthier but no longer looking to lose any more weight (something I never thought I would say).
The picture on the left (a purple shirt) was at the end of July 2018 at 310.0 pounds- after already losing 20 pounds. The picture on the right was taken on November 24, 2019 and I weighed 165.1 pounds that morning
