I’ve been doing 16/8 for almost 4 weeks now and it definitely gets easier! I try to make sure I eat between 9:30-5:30. Eating dinner earlier in the evening can make it hard when I want to snack while watching tv, but knowing I can have coffee (with creamer!) by 9:30 the next morning makes it easier. I also don’t obsess over it, I’m “good” probably 80-85% of the time. There are nights I’ll have a small (100-150 calories) snack around 8 or 9 and then have coffee the next morning as usual. I know I’m not utilizing IF as well as I could but it keeps me from feeling trapped by it.

i love IF. been doing it for over a year. i do 16/8 have done 18/6 before and have done OMAD a few times. it does get easier im the beginning i wanted to eat my arm. during the work week i drink lots of water and green tea. on weekends or days off i workout i the am and by the time i'm done its time to eat. also, i was jumping out of my fast eating and not breaking it properly. i now break it with mct oil, bone broth, acv, etc. very informative info i got from fledge fitness on YT. good luck. it will get easier and you'll be able to do it in your sleep
