New to this group and to clean IF

Just joined this group. I’ve been doing clean IF for a week now and have been able to do 16:8-20:4. I like this group for women my age (turning 60 in May) because our hormones and bodies don’t work like those of the younger ladies. Hoping I have some new numbers to show my doctor in April. (He’s a proponent of less calories in than calories out = weight loss. That just isn’t true for me!) I’ve been on MFP for quite a few years and calorie restriction doesn’t work!

    I started IF Jan 1. After losing 15 lbs over the last 5 years (slow because it is hard)
    With the fasting I am down another 9. I set my mind and now it is easy. I feel better.

    I hope it works for you. I find it the easiest diet I have ever done. I am hoping to lose at least 2 stone and at most 3. Good luck Annie
