    Including sleep it's really not that hard. If you eat dinner at 6 and skip breakfast you're up to 17+ hours by the time lunch time rolls around.

    I eat a meal at 12pm and a meal around 6pm. After a day or two I got used to it.

    Hmm thinking about trying this. But maybe instead of skipping breakfast just have a late lunch or early dinner

    Its not crazy at all, Its actually really easy. When you eat less your body will adjust. I dont even get hungry until lunch time.

    I started doing this 4-5 years ago.

    I also stopped drinking anything but water during the week. If I want a sugar drink I have to wait for the weekend.

    For example yesterday I had a regular sized bacon and eggs lunch and for dinner I had a cesaer salad and a baked potato.

    After both meals I was full and I didnt have to be hungry.

    After you start reducing your food intake your stomach will shrink and it will become easier with time.

    There are some promising health benefits in the studies so far.

    Pretty interesting. Not sure how it protects cells from DNA damage, but if so, that would be awesome. Not only for reducing cancer risk but I also imagine it would have some kind of anti-aging effect

    Well in any case I'm sold. I haven't eaten lunch yet today so I'm just gonna skip it and eat an early dinner this evening

    Do you mix in low carb / keto with the fasting or do you eat however you want / relatively clean and still lose weight?

    Most teas and black coffee are fine. Water is a must. I usually have some matcha in the morning.

    I’ve been eating a lot more vegetables ie soups and stews, seeing the results has inspired me to improve my diet. And I’ve noticed I am happier eating smaller portions now. I typically fast from 9pm to 1-3pm depending on how I feel.
    The weight loss happened quickly. I feel amazing for it tbh

    I was never heavy per say at all, but I lost 13 lbs of extra fat, following a very similar diet and in only 90 days... the first week is tough, but after your body adjusts it’s quite easy really... sometimes I literally have to remind myself to eat... the mental part is def the hardest

    I go through my day pretty normal like, I'm a normal guy, I'm a swell guy, I'm a nice enough guy, I'm a cool kind of guy, I'm a pretty groovy guy...but then I get a little SUGAR in me and start to go KOO-KOO. Doesn't have to be much, this time it was two of 'em Fiber One brownies. Only 90 calories each but they do the job. Do you know what I'm sayin'? They get me goin', they get me riled up, a little KOO-KOO, a little WACKY, start gettin' me a little KOOKY, a little, y'know, LOOPY-- OOO. Hey, somebody get this kid in a padded cell! Someone get him a straitjacket! He's gettin' a little WACKY..ooo...a little KOOKY! He's off the walls, bananas, loco!

    We make our own protein bars with chickpea protein, flax, almonds, etc. We also prepare overnight oats, with bananas, various berries, and protein.

    Usually we eat one of those, sometimes i make juice, either veggie or fruit. We also make protein pancakes, we freeze them. And in the morning just put em in the toaster.

    A giant blended frozen fruit bowl topped with sliced banana, lots of dry coconut flakes, goji berries, and cacao nibs. It's absolutely delicious and easy to eat in the morning, plus the coconut flakes add lots of healthy fats and calories to get me thru the morning, and the cacao nibs help with digestion.

    Before work, two breakfast muffins with either slices of German salami in them, or ham, cheese and mayonnaise. I'll have a milk coffee with two sugars along with that.

    On my days off, my girlfriend makes me three bacon, three sausage, two fried eggs or cheddar cheese omelette, a tomato and four slices of toast.

    You won't break fast with those unless they're doused in cream and sugar. I used to bring broth and shredded cabbage to the office when I started. It was less than 50 calories but changed to lemon water when I needed that flavor kick.

    When I have time, 3-egg omelet with meat and cheese in it, big ass cappuccino, youghurt, and if I'm still hungry, some toasts with ham and cheese.
