You may have seen some of us fast. And think that's impossible. I did. Then I realised I wasn't hungry at breakfast and was only eating it from habit. So I skipped breakfast and broke my fast mid morning. Now I typically don't eat until after midday and sometimes mid afternoon. Eating keto makes it possible for me.

I'm hoping that not only will it help me shed weight - it will also help my skin retract through autophagy.

Here's some info if you are interested. https://www.dietdoctor.com/intermittent-fasting

Read Dr Jason Fung's book The Obesity Code if you want to know more about the science and why the diet industry and Big Food have made us fat.

Some interesting science on the anti inflammatory magic soup of fasting:

I agree Ali. I was always starving in the morning. Im now finished my evening meal by 7pm and have breakfast at 11am. The key is making sure you eat enough fats, so cheese or eggs or meat with some fats, a salad or just veg wont do it. And if i do eat carbs, well im starving again.
I go 16 hours on weekdays, i could go longer but my work schedule doesnt allow that. I eat dinner as soon as i come home. Breakfast is at my morning break11am, i wouldnt be able to fast until 2pm which is my lunch.

I can usually go until about 10.30am-11am without feeling hungry, but it's more convenient for work to eat B at 8am when i get in.

Mind you, the team I'm in eat ALL the time so maybe I'll try pushing it back, which would give me a 14 hour fast, is that ok?

I've just done week 1. Go from 6/7pm to 12 noon.

No sugar squash and water keeps me going until I eat my lunch. I don't know if it is because I keep myself busy or I'm not actually hungry I don't think of my next meal like I use to. :)

Well done! I don't feel the need to snack like I used to. This past week I've eaten more than I've needed - when I've not been hungry in my eating window. So this week, I'm going to focus on deciding if I'm hungry. I'm good at doing that goes my break fast - timing variable. So having only shed a net 1lb this week, I hope this focus will help me.

i find it happens naturally some days, not others!

I agree, i find weekends i tend to have only 2 meals as i eat when im hungry not when i have a break. Weekdays i dont eat before work and have breakfast at 11am, Monday mornings i might eat at my desk before break time as dinner may have been 4pm on Sunday.
