    Hard for me to lose unless I do OMAD (20:4 for me) at least 5 to 6-days/week. I can maintain with a slow gain doing 16:8 7-days/week but to truly maintain, I probably need to do 20:4 2-days/week and 16:8 5-days/week.

    I did make it tell 5:00 pm today fasted. Fasting to lunch is easy for me. Going to 5 has never been real easy. I remembered my favorite trick and that is a 1/2 tsp of coconut oil as needed to get me through. That worked today. I did that twice and probably only added 100-kcals today (I still had a container at work). Not a true fast but a lot better than what I've been doing. I think the goal is fast tell five again for me and drink lots of water and use the coconut oil as needed.

    Good luck all.

    Thanks all!

    Fasted tell 5 on Friday. Saturday was splurge day at the lake. Sun and today were fast tell 5 days. Did use a little coconut oil on fast days. Bought new digital scale. Didn't like the old analog one. I cheat on the analog one leaning on one foot and it will read 5-lbs less. I don't know why I do that but I do so now I won't. I also think my old scale was off by about 3-lbs. So my weight this morning with a good scale and not cheating it was 217.4-lbs. That is my new baseline and a lot higher than I was thinking but probably accurate. I will start with that. I should loose a few lbs this week since I'm having a splurge day. My past experience doing that was gain 3lbs on splurge day, lose 4 the rest of the week for a 1-lb week's/loss.

    Down to 215.0 yesterday morning. Was lowest for the week. Lost a couple of lbs this week. The coconut oil helps me a lot when I get real hunger feelings and when I get must eat cause I'm stressed feeling. I only had one day of not fasting tell 5 and that was when the boss was visiting and I went to lunch with him. My plan is to fast tell 5 6-days/week and use the coconut oil as needed. One day I ran in the morning and was still able to get to 5 fasted so that was good!

    Well went hunting for 3 days and ate a little on the weekends so haven't done the diet much this last week and ended up about 1-lb for the week. Will get back at it. Didn't get anything hunting (like usual) but had fun. Good luck all.
