I belive in 16/8 ...i feel grate , energetic,more confident in one day fast..and have only 2 meals a day ..sometimes snacks in eveng..

Great but you don’t have to eat meat for high quality protein. Meat, dairy and eggs contain cholesterol. Try lentils and legumes.
What you eat is actually MOST IMPORTANT !

The camera is too close much of the time so the walking of two steps back and forth almost makes me motion sick

I have often used excessive exercise as an excuse for a bad diet. It stopped working and I was the heaviest I have ever been. 223.5. I lost 50 lbs by eating clean for the most part, and regular intermittent fasting 3-5x a week. Some workouts I stay fasted, others I need to top up my glycogen reserves.
Cut the breads, simple carbs, add some good healthy fats, and fasting is easy. You will save money on your grocery bill too. 👍

A nutritionist that is in shape, about time. Been doing the 16/8 for 24 months, started @ 198 ended up @188, never hungry. Worst thing is peer pressure to eat more.

Nuts are poison. Avocado is poison. Vegetables are anti nutrients.

It is a life style

I've been doing intermittent fasting )16/8 for more than a year now. It is SO MUCH better/more efficient than anything I've ever tried before. It keeps me focused on things that matter, and not when or what my next meal is going to be. My body naturally leans towards healthier foods. I spontaneously dropped the alcohol and sugar intake because it just does not make my body feel well. More energy, more clarity... totally stopped the obsessing over food and I also get to eat more when I do eat, which is a plus! :)

Been fasting since 1st Ramadan everything is good to me .

Intermitted fasting and how it restarts the body is biblical. Eating a plant based diet or vegan is also biblical.

''Real, whole foods. Ideally, organic or pastured meat''. That's where I completely checked out.

I try IF for a few months but then get really moody and angry easily after a few months.

This has happened about 4 times now as I have tried doing it for years.

Any ideas how to be able to do IF long term?
Bobby Taylor
I have been doing IF for a month now. Down 12 pounds, my clothes fit much better and I feel amazing. I make healthy choices when I eat and have weaned myself from sugar. I don’t feel hungry at all. My worst time used to be in the evening when I was reading or watching a ballgame. After my last meal I brush and floss my teeth and I have zero temptations to eat. You can afford the organic chicken and grass fed beef because you’re not buying all the snack foods you used to eat. This really works! It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change.

I am A Muslim and in Islam, we observe fast similar to this. It also has great benefits for our digestive system it allows it to rest and remove toxins from our body. It also helps our intestine to cleanse and strengthen its lining. It can also stimulate a process called autophagy, which is where cells self-cleanse and removes damaged and dangerous particles. This has been shown to protect brain cells and could reduce depression and anxiety, as well as the risk of developing dementia. In the long run, fasting, if done correctly, can improve one's digestive system and overall metabolism. We also fast 16 hours from dawn to sunset in the summertime.
M Palmer
Certainly IF is the way to live less time in the kitchen, more quality time for family n friends I find my brain is not preoccupied with what am I going to eat, but rather a sharper mind.

How to travel the world with almost Intermittent Fasting: Transformational Technique 1 day ago   18:19

Many people daydream about traveling the world, but all of them have the same excuse - lack of money. Tomislav, after traveling the world for years with almost no money, shows how it is possible for everyone to do the same, if they really want to.

Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of traveling – hitchhiking, couchsurfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way.

Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road. Find out more on his website:
