Intermittent Fasting Anyone?

Is anyone doing IF right now? I’ve been on the 16-8 for about two weeks and feeling great!

    Great. I've tried it in the past... I like the schedule aspect, but still struggle with the counting/managing cals part.

    Yup! Been loosely following 16:8 for a few years. I prefer having a large dinner, so I save more calories for the evening.

    Yes I am, inadvertently, and I sorta hate admitting it, as I detest the term and cringe at the wild claims, and as if the stupid term wasn't bad enough, it's becoming bastardized (14:10 and soon 12:12 too); but I'm eating breakfast, lunch and dinner 3-4 hours apart and that means I'm following the 16:8 or 18:6 protocol. Just silly. It's a perfectly ordinary meal schedule. Having boundaries makes me more relaxed as well as disciplined about eating, that's all.

    When I need to drop a few #, I cut calories by skipping breakfast. That creates a 250 cal deficit. AKA - IF

    Yarp, I probably attribute my fat loss so far due to IF, it's awesome. I currently do 16/8 minimum but aim for 18-21, I enjoy big meals and this works perfectly for me.

    Side notes: It helps my anxiety slightly, my appetite is decreased and overall just feel better! :)

    I prefer larger meals and breakfast has never appealed to me so I do it by accident.

    Been doing the 16/8 for around 6 months, love it! Nothing before 11:00 AM or after 7:00PM.
