re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
Eat only during an 8 hour window. 16 hour fast.

I can’t do it

You can have warm liquids (Tea or Black coffee) to help stave off the urge to eat in the morning.

It's not as bad as it sounds. I was nervous at first because I generally have a ravenous appetite, but once my first little wave of hunger subsides in the morning I'm fine. It doesn't last long, I haven't gotten any headaches and I don't get weak and shaky like I used to if I got hungry. I just have good, steady energy all day and feel great.

I find it to be pretty easy.

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
I’ve been doing IF for probably 6 years now. It’s just become the way I eat. It’s not even something I think about anymore. For me, it’s easier to abstain altogether than to try to limit portions. The only real purpose I have is in easily lowering weekly caloric intake. Any other supposed benefits are just icing on the cake for me.

I actually feel MUCH better on days I fast. I usually skip both breakfast and lunch on MWF. On TTh, I may or may not skip them. Just depends on whether I come across something worth eating.

I’m really not super conscious or religious about it. If I cheat and eat on a fast day because a business lunch comes up or something, I don’t sweat it. That’s why I like it. It’s relatively brainless.

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
I'm starting the 16/8 method to see how it improves my energy and overall wellness. I have questions about calories during the fasting window. Can I have green powder and BCAA's during the fasting period? Is there a benchmark for calories that is considered breaking the fast? Thanks.

I would not take green powder if you are trying to fast. BCAAs are fine

Preferably 0 but anything less than 30

This is me too

I rarely eat breakfast. Turns out I've pretty much always been IF without even knowing

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
Thank you. Good to know. The calories per scoop on my green powder is 30 but I won't push it.

I'm in the middle of reading The Complete Guide to fasting by Dr. Jason Fung. Tons of good info in there about the positive effects of fasting on the body.

EAT Stop Eat and Brad Pilon were my first exposure to IF.

I do something similar. Last meal is around 7/8 and first meal is at 12p the following day. I would suggest to look into bullet proof coffee if you do IF.


Does bulletproof not break your fast?

I had great results on IF. I’d wake up in the mornings and do fasted cardio and wouldn’t eat till 10 or 11. If I could have some bulletproof at work to start the day after I do cardio that’d be extremely helpfuk

So far, I have noticed nothing at all.

There is a YouTube video by Primed titled "Why Some Top Athletes Eat Only One Meal A Day" and it explains Intermittent Fasting for 23 hours and eating in that last hour. Looks cool. I just don't think I could do it.

I really want to give it a try. But I'm not kidding when I say I'm hungry ALL the time.
