    How have you found using the MFP app helps during IF. I’m interested in starting IF, but I still use the app for calculating micronutrients (I’m on LCHF)

    I still count calories on if.. I find if quite easy though,, I never was a breakfast person any way.. So eating all my calories after work, works for me.. Although since I hit my goal I now sometimes have a bowl of weetabix cereal at midday.. You can still put weight on doing if. I have learnt a lot by tracking my food.

    Great job! I do low carb and intermittent fasting 1 or 2 days a week. Some days I’ll do a 24 hour fast. Eat breakfast then not eat again till the following day. It work great for me. I don’t have a schedule just choose to fast on the days I’m not feeling hungry.

    @wren176 When you eat breakfast and then fast the rest of the day, do you usually do the same thing the following day or do you do another fasting protocol?

    If I am someone that just loves food and can't get enough of it... how do you think I can start out? 16/8? Do I eat all my calories I normally need to eat during my 8 hours of eating(1500)?

    But what are you doing IF for? Is it just to help you with your calorie deficit? That's why I do IF, and I still have coffee with a splash of milk. I'm not one of these people who believe if I consume over 10 calories in the morning I'm "breaking my fast" therefore all these magical properties of IF will go away. I have my coffee with a bit of milk. I just save all of my eating for later in the day.

    So If you are doing IF to help you stay in a calorie deficit, just fit your coffee into your calorie goal. IF shouldn't make your life harder.

    I have a coffee with milk every morning too...some days two cups and I make it fit into my calories for the day no prob. 57 lbs down so far.
