Yes, another Intermittent Fasting Question

Friends, Romans, IFers lend me your ears...those who do IF do you find it easier to eat later or earlier? For example, during the workweek, I have breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack and I'm done for the day. What's been working for you?

    I’m a late eater. One active IF’er at our Intermittent Fasting group here at MFP follows a 9:00 am to 3:00 pm feeding window which I’d like to try. It’s all good and there’s no rule to follow so each should determine what works for them based on their goals.

    I'm big on eating my calories in a one hour window (or less)! I do it usually for lunch. I love to see how long I can go and I believe it gives me a very positive experience with eating and also discipline. The rest of the time I'm chugging water. Saturday & Sunday no fasting for me so I can enjoy time with family and not stress that I "cant eat yet". Do you, experiment a bit! :)

    I do on average an 18 hour fast so I eat lunch about 11:30 and finish dinner by 5:30.

    Definitely prefer eating a little later (usually around 12). I'd much rather skip breakfast alone than dinner with friends.

    I'm always less hungry in the AM and more hungry in the PM, so when I was doing IF I skipped breakfast.
