    @sijomial thanks for the info. I will keep an eye on things then.
    So far I’ve managed some long walks on my fast days and I’m going to slowly ramp up to more intense workouts over time. I think I will follow your pattern and do my workouts after at least some food. I’m actually surprised by how much food you can have for 500 calories!
    I don’t honestly know exactly what my maintenance calories are and I don’t know how much you can trust the tdee calculators (I get a range of 1900-2500 calories for maintenance spending on which site I use) so I’m planning on trying things out for a month and then adjusting based on the trend.

    might be able to hone in a tad quicker and avoid water weight issues (water adds weight but no calories in it of course).

    Just TDEE Please spreadsheet - better than rough 5 level TDEE charts from 1919 study.

    Im noy specialist in physiology my field is way far from this, i found those statements somewhere in a site that refers to Dr Fung a famous nephrologist. He's a world-leading expert on intermittent fasting and low carb, especially for treating people with type 2 diabet.

    Those statements are correct or wrong?, im not an expert to confirm it and its not the purpose of my post and i dont want to talk about this anymore.

    SO forget the last part of my post (the physiological statements) and focus on my personal experience :smile:

    Thanks anyway

    Not Dr Fung!!!
