I'm assuming this is a new group? well, to start things off I guess we should see what kinds of "diets/Lifestyles" we have going on in here ... ? I'm doing Keto, been doing intermittent 18hr fasts daily. what about the rest of you?

    hey, i have been eating pretty much whatever i want but i try to make sure i have a 50/50 split with my carbs and proteins, i have been fasting for 20 hours a day. my eating window is from 12-4. also im currently in college so i wake up and work out everyday at about 6 am so i always work out fasted. I have found t pretty easy as long as i get my calories in the day before. ive lost about 10 pounds in the month since i have started doing this, how has this worked for you guys and are you seeing good results?

    Wow that's awesome! My results have been crappy haha. But then again I haven't had time for working out at all in forever. I'm kinda sloppy with my feed window, it's typically from 2pm- 8pm

    I do allow fat in the morning during my fasting because I follow a ketogenic diet and fat helps fuel the ketones that eat the fat on my body.. Sounds weird. I know. But it's supposed to work so... Lol. Idk. I'm still new to it

    One day I'll get the hang of it all lol
  • I did a three-day complete water fast once to "jump start" my weight loss. Is that what the fasting is in this group? Complete water fasts?

    it took me a long time to get a grip on it, i started without working out and a 6 hour window and didnt see much results just a few pounds here and there but after i started working out the weight started falling off of me it just takes time and dedication

    No we aren't doing complete water fasts. We just limit when were allowed to eat each day. So if I had a window from 2-8pm that would mean I cannot eat after 8pm and therefore would be fasting from 8pm- 2pm the following day= 18 hrs

    Anyone around or still doing this? I am doing a 16-8 hour window. I have found it to be very easy!
    I have lost the past couple of week an average 2 pounds a week just by doing that. I have not been very good
    about my macros--I definitely stay within caloric range, just because it is so much easier to do that with pretty much two meals a day versus the three + snacks.
    My window is 11:15-7:15 but I usually am done by 6pm--so I have more of a 17.5 window.
    I would love to belong to an active group! Please let me know if it is somewhere else!

    I'm guessing no one is active in this group anymore?
