    Name: Harry
    Weight: 289
    Height: 5'10"
    Goal: 225
    OMAD 4-8PM

    I just started today for the second go around. I only got less than a week in the first time as I had to stop for other reasons. My plan is to do 20:4 fasting where my off time is from 4P to 8P. It was working well with my work schedule and seems to be the best fit for me. Anyone else in their late 60's -70's doing this here? Curious as to how well others have adapted to this method. I look forward to the discussions. I know that everyone is different and what works for one may not be suitable for another. However I do get good ideas from others and willing to try another method if I'm having trouble with keeping up. I look forward to the discussions and hope to be counted as one of those success stories soon.

    ...your name or preferred username - Lori
    ...your weight - High: 172 Current: 148
    ...your height - 5' 3"
    ...any past struggles you've faced - Sugar Addiction, Hot Flashes
    ...your goal weight range - 130-135
    ...the time of your OMAD - Not Sure Yet - I'll experiment. Anywhere from 2:00 to 4:00pm.
    ...and your OMAD start date - Today

    You might elaborate on what brought you around to OMAD as opposed to other weight-loss methods. This thread lets others know they are not alone in the struggle.

    Struggled with sugar addiction for as long as I can remember. (8 hour glucose tolerance test when I was 19 - doctor told me to quit eating sugar. Yeah right :D ) Menopause issues more recently. I read Jason Fung's book in April 2018 and tried to fast for four days right off the bat. Failed miserably of course! Not sure exactly when in 2019 I read an article that I should ease into it. Started with 12:12, no snacks and gradually decreased my eating window. I've been doing 20:4 for awhile (2:00-6:00pm eating window) and realizing that I'm just not hungry after I get done eating at 2:00 for any more food later. So the next obvious stage is OMAD! So glad to find this group! Oh yeah, and I never have hot flashes anymore and I haven't eaten any added sweeteners (white/brown sugar, agave, honey, artificial, etc.) since the end of June 2019. I LOVE IF! :):):)
