Me me!! LOL
At the moment I do 6:1, which is the maintenance version of 5:2 (500 cals 2x week, TDEE the other 5 days, but I only 'fast' once a week). But I've done 16:8. And still do sometimes - it's more of a lifestyle thing for me, it happens when it happens lol
It all depends what you want to get out of it. Fasting can give you lots of health benefits and in terms of caloric intake, if you find it hard to stick to your limit, restricting yourself to the 8 hours can really help. As with anything though, it takes planning and depends on your overall goals.

So soccer was canceled which was fortunate as I spent most of the day arguing with hubby. We should not have the same day off . It is bad for us. I just wanted to eat lunch together . And not spend 250,000 remodeling our house. Which is perfect

Elsie--congrats on meeting your mini goals. What are you using to track body fat?
My daughter's birthday was today and she loves the kids area at the gym so much that that is where she wanted to go tonight. Part of me wants to celebrate--the part of me that did not have to do the run today. Lifting Friday.

Wowza, I can't deal with multi quotes....
Have had an emotional, tired day. Called out for a birth at 1.30am, home at 6am. Then woken at 8am by my Mum calling - her brother is very sick and she is flying back to UK today to be with him :-( Have spent the day helping her get packed, organised etc - been hard work with my tired brain fog and her kind-of-panicked state. Sad times. Uni is hard, home life is challenging and honestly, wine and lifting are the only things getting me through right now! And apparently I'm not doing so bad - spoke to one of the Uni tutors yesterday who said that the current third years (my peer group) are "falling like dominos" to the stress of the course right now. So the fact I'm not in a white coat yet is probably positive. Everything is one day at a time right now.... I just keep churning out work and hoping for the best. *kitten*, it's a good job I'm awesome ;-)
