re: 16/8 fasting
Every day. I don't really even think about it. In other words, I seldom find myself intentionally waiting for 16 hours to pass, before breaking my fast.

My eating window now is typically about 1pm to 8pm. And I often do OMAD. I am considering moving my window so it ends earlier, but that is tough with our schedule.

Good deal !! I’ve done bodybuilding for 10 years but for health reasons I’m quitting it and starting to train my body and mind in better ways.

re: 16/8 fasting
It just feels like a "natural" (I know that's a nebulous term) way for me to eat.

I started fasting during chemo treatments after studying what they're doing out at USCw. It could be totally coincidence and/or placebo, but using it as an adjuvant therapy seemed to work. I was cancer free very early on in my 6 months of chemo, after being diagnosed w stage IV Hodgkins.

The science is very promising. And if nothing else, it is a good way to limit caloric intake and enjoy the meals you eat more.

I regularly run half marathons (slowly) on a fast. And I didn't really change my routine that much for full marathons. Just brought fuel with me. I can't speak much to body building, but check out Peter Attia's routine w fasting and lifting.

As McLemore has stated, this is fairly easy and completely within our ability. I mostly live on a rough 16-8 schedule. People eat one meal a day, nothing wrong with that either. After getting past that first hunger or false hunger signals, I’ll get sharper. Way back in our history, we most likely ate one meal a day or every other day. Early American colonists ate two meals a day, a schedule I would enjoy. They’d wake up and work while the sun wasn’t beating on them, depending on the time of yr they may stop to eat at 10 or 2. Then back to work until roughly an hr before sundown.

I usually eat 2 meals a day. Lunch and dinner. If I eat breakfast I feel tired and lethargic.

I read in one study that fasting prior to chemo had crazy good results in patients.

I do but I find that more of a 20/4 works better for me. If I eat at lunch I can still find a way to over eat if im not too careful. If I wait til after work before I consume my first calorie it's almost impossible for me to over eat before bed time and I don't even have to really think about it. Just eat a big meal that's not absolutely ridiculous.

I have just started it in hopes of breaking through a weight loss plateau. I fast every day except the two days a week when I have two workouts. I eat breakfast that day for the fuel.

I'm on my 3rd week. I really like it so far. The Zero app is pretty cool.

I was doing 16:8, and bumped it up to 18:6 (in conjunction with keto). Keto already kills hunger, so it feels easy & normal. I want to incorporate longer fasts to get autophagy benefits.

re: 16/8 fasting
I do it every M-F 12noon-8pm and it’s pretty easy. Only time it’s challenging is when I run early in the AM. On Tuesday I ran 12.5 miles at 4am and that fast to noon was terrible, but I bet I burned a shite ton of fat in the process. On the weekends I train early and just end up eating brunch with family around 9:30 or 10 so as to enjoy life and let loose a little.
