    I am considering giving it a try, Im just curious about peoples experience with it and if anyone has any tips on getting started. Why do you only fast on Mondays?


      Oh no... strictly 16/8 fasting from tuesday to saturday (meals between noon and 8 o'clock). Mostly make an exception on sunday (having breakfast with my wife). Complete fasting day on monday (drinking water/tea/coffee, no sugar, max. two glasses of juice).

      Choose the times of eating/fasting that it fits to your life.

      I feel great...

        ah, ok...i see. Was it difficult to transition to IF?


          "Just" try to make it a habit. Avoid exceptions...
          Compared to a completed fasting day it is relatively easy.
          For sure there will be hunger at the beginning but your body will adapt.
          Right now I'm down to two meals a day (... plus some chocolate / peanut butter / cookies)

          Mostly no hunger but drinking (water) is important!

            I try to hit 14h fast, but I do not take it seriously, some days I have to shorten, some days I can extend... play around, to see what fits your schedule.

            I eat dinner around 6pm and breakfast is at 8 or 9am, when I am at home. and at 10am at work.


              May 6 >>>>>> 52 <<<<<<

              Walking during lunch hour - walked a little over a mile during my break. It felt so good to get away from my desk!

              *Sigh* I had high hopes of doing Vitality and possibly starting 30 days of yoga, but I got lazy (AKA- Got wrapped up in a video game) sooo...yeah, not much else went on for me other than taking the dogs out for a brief walk.

              BUT it has been about 13 hrs since my last meal (we ate late last night) and I have only had water. I had not planned on starting this today, but I gorged myself on pizza late last night so I figure my fat ass can wait a little longer before I eat today. It hasn't been horrible, but I am hungry. Luckily I have enough distraction at work right now to ignore it(mostly). Usually if I am at work by this time I have already eaten a banana for a snack, possibly have had hot chocolate with marshmallows(depending on weather) and have eaten whatever breakfast(normally an egg biscuit or a bowl of Special K w/ Protein cereal). Wish me luck, i will need it lol
