    I think this only works if you don’t work out a lot.

    This is not possible for early-risers. I have been doing this but I feel its difficult on weekdays as compared to weekends as I sleep much more on weekends so 'the hunger time' is done fast.

    I am usually breaking my fasting at 11am and starting it again at 7pm and that works for me.😊

    I think it works so well with me, because my schedule is free in the mornings till about noon then I'm busy right till 8. So it kind of works perfect for me, I feel less bloated, I have more energy my sleep is great, and bowel movements are a lot more frequent! But for someone who works out early in the mornings, has to be at work at work by 8am, I feel like that's not attainable, I certainly wouldn't be able to do that! But props to everyone who does it! 🙌🏼

    I do 19 5 naturally, due to my health only liked food between 10 and 3 pm, preferably 2 00 pm, and now that I'm on keto and avoiding carbs, related to triggering insulin which stores fat, I am losing weight. The 19 5 by itself without the keto just maintained my weight due to my health and metabolism.

    I tend to go a full 24 hours without eating about once a month and not even realize it until the next day. I even have a very physical job on top of it. I just drink a TON of water.

    Apparently I’ve been intermittent fasting my entire life....however I don’t do it in the morning...it’s more about I don’t eat after a certain time at night. Like I don’t eat after 6 or 7 pm and I eat about a half hour or hour after I get up. I’ve never thought about why I have done that except for the fact that I don’t like going to bed with food in my stomach. It’s never been about intentionally fasting. I didn’t even know what that was until recently. I would never workout without eating an hour before either. That’s just crazy lol.

    I like your TheXvid channel and think your great. However I feel like you failed to mention whats the most important part of If. With IF you reduce how many times your insulin spikes. And the more your insulin spikes the more insulin resistance your body gets meaning your body stores alot of fat and blocks the nutrients needed for burning fat. ( so 2 thing ls you dont want). Furthermore what many people dont realise(or forget) is our body cant do two things at once. So when your eating your body cannot also start burning fat. So if your someone who's continuously eating/snacking you dont give your body time to burn the fat. It's even worse for people who are midnight snacker cos that's means your only giving your body a very small amount of time to burn fat before your next meal (break-fast). So what's great about IF is you can choose your own timetable to fit your schedule it's about when you eat. So that you dont keep spiking your insulin. Am not that good at explaining you should check out dr.berg or fledge fitness they give you all the information, the benefits, the "effect"(which is just your body changing) and how to avoid them. Been doing If and this is the first time I've actually stuck to something and am actually feeling great.

    its important to drink water while intermittent fasting... that hunger you feel in the morning is usually just thirst.

  • Alexia Siachami

    Well for the past 1 and a half weeks i have been following the warrior diet which is 20/4 pattern and so these 4 hours basically have two meals in them. It is going to be something i will be following because before i start this i was eating out of boredom multiple times a day. And no i am not binging in this diet, i can though as long as it's healthy foods. So ye no problem so far and i lost about 5 pounds out of it.

    I am a person who used to eat at midnight and i used to eat breakfast right after waking up. i have been intermittent fasting since 4 days. it wasn't hard. i feel hungry after 14/15 hours. i stop eating at 10 and eat after 2 pm next day. i started to feel more energetic throughout the day than usual also more focused. it have so many health benefits. and i plan to continue this always. my sleep cycle also got better. also my calorie intake is sooo under control i can't believe it.

  • Taylor Macko
    Taylor Macko 2 months ago

    I've been doing a method of intermittent fasting, but instead of the 16/8 method, I do a *20/4 method*.
    Its harder for me to eat within a larger time frame than a smaller one. Idk why.
    I've been fasting for 5 months already. I have noticed I've dropped weight, not significantly though, probably like 10 pounds at the most.
    At the most part, I stay a steady and constant weight.
    And I did not decide to start fasting because of watching this vid. This is the first time I'm watching it, even though it's been out for well over a year now.
    Life was like: 'hey, so you're gonna eat less food & stuff at diff. times from now on".
    I was like: 'yea, sure. bring it. less for me to worry about'.

  • Brenda Lee

    I do intermittent fasting few times a week and I have seen progress and I don't eat/snack as much as I normally would. But in order for intermittent fasting to SUCCESSFULLY work long term, you have to take your lifestyle/work/training schedule in consideration. I would NOT train fasted, then leave it for 3 hours before breaking my fast (you'd be super hungry and feeling faint, depending how hard you worked yourself in your training, this is also very dangerous if you have diabetes and your blood sugar drops). I actually have my first meal at 12-1pm similar to the time of when the girls did it, then wait 30 mins or so for it to digest, then head to the gym (so I have energy to lift heavy weights), then would have my 2nd meal around 3-4pm. Then dinner + another meal at 7-8pm. My meals are BIG and I cook whole food meals from home (also they are according to my calories and macros I have set for myself - I'm a personal trainer/online coach). I also drink about 3-4L of water before I break my fast at 12-1pm. It helps A LOT if you are constantly hydrating yourself throughout the times you are fasting. I would also like to add that I used to ALWAYS eat right when I wake up and would tell myself I NEED food straight away in the morning. But your body adapts just like exercise and the food you feed it. The beginning is always the hardest! You also don't need to do intermittent fasting everyday to see results. I do it 3-5 times a week, depending on my schedule and my lifestyle! :) hope that helps and is a better insight on how you can use intermittent fasting and how it's important you take your lifestyle into consideration when trying this out!

  • Bee Bee
    Bee Bee 4 months ago +1

    Currently, I end up eating at around 11am after a workout and I eat my last meal around 4:30/5:30 and don't eat after that, so technically it seems to be intermittent fasting, although I just did it naturally without realizing that's what it was called.
    I end up eating 2 meals a day plus a snack inbetween and I'm not really hungry during the fasting hours. I'm also losing with the addition of 30 minutes of a morning workout

  • rachel cuccia
    rachel cuccia 4 months ago

    You don’t have to eat 12-8pm 😅 I intermittent fast 9-5 or 9-6 BECAUSE I workout from 8-9am every morning. This way I can just go ahead and get my protein straight after my workout! It definitely makes you feel less bloated and more controlled. I’m soooo glad I started it :)

  • Joana Roshi
    Joana Roshi 4 months ago

    So I practise intermittent fasting. You don't have to eat stop and start eating at the same time everyday. For example if you have breakfast at lets say 9 and then your last meal at 5, you will end up fasting for 16 hours until about 9 the next morning. Although if you have an important for example at 7 then you can have a longer fasting window. I use an app called "zero" and it keeps track of fasting and window eating time. Otherwise it can really be a hassle.

  • kitty girl
    kitty girl 4 months ago

    Idk, they make it seem a lot harder than it is, at least for me..I just started this about a week or two ago and doing the warrior diet with 20 hours fasting and 4 eating, and its been easy not eating or drinking while fasting, and i dont get hungry. And when i do eat in that 4 hours its normally just my dinner which is pretty light. Nothing else usually. The only complaint i have is the empty stomach breath/taste in ur mouth. Ive just been using mouthwash throughout the day. But its still pretty easy to do for me. The hard part is the most important part! Exercise lol.

    One more thing it’s easy for me because most of fasting time is night so when you went to sleep once you are okay but when we fast in our holy month then we start fasting very early like 3 am we eat and then 8 pm we open our fast and we didn’t even take a drop of water 💦 but in this intermediate fasting we can drink whenever we want 8 hours we can eat so basically it’s really easy at least for me because I am use too

    Try a water-only fast? It should be medically supervised. There’s a place in Santa Rosa, California called True North. I think that would be very interesting to see you touch on and would help dispense with some of the stigma. Love the channel! Good luck!

    I've just finished a week of intermittent fasting. I made the fatal mistake of not taking enough food with me to work today. I won't make that mistake again. Other than today, it has been awesome. It's rough making sauces, prior to breaking my fast...👀 And remembering that I can't TASTE it!😆😒

  • Coryl Addy
    Coryl Addy 5 months ago

    Unless you continue fasting forever, there's no way to "skip breakfast". You can skip a MORNING MEAL, but breakfast is literally just a meal that breaks the fast you're in overnight. When you take it... doesn't matter. Not bothering to copy paste the research on it, but the "breakfast" meal for the morning isn't grounded in any science as beneficial or necessary.
    Eat when you feel hungry. I intermittent fast naturally when I'm not trying to eat on a schedule. Everyone is different.

    Personally I don't think fasting should be done in such a short period. It usually takes me two weeks after starting to adjust. After that the hunger really goes away largely especially if you get in enough water. I'm down 20 lb in a little over a month and a half specifically down almost 5 percent body fat and up 2 percent muscle mass over the same period.

  • Clancy Slay
    Clancy Slay 5 months ago

    I can see how this would make sense if you need to drop a few pounds late notice since you’re not consuming as many calories during the day. But everyone always says how breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and to me this just kind of sounds like skipping breakfast. Then Michelle says she ate as many calories in the 8 hour period as she would in a normal day so I don’t understand how this is supposed to be beneficial? Thoughts??

    The things I find exceptional with reference to metabolic cooking recipe compilation is because it permitted so that I was able to quite easily plan in advance my daily meals and so work the prep time and work into my own busy timeframe. I could put together certain parts of the daily meals before hand to cut back on the prep work while i was hard-pressed for the time. The electronic copy on my smart phone made searching for the ingredients very simple not to mention many of those ingredients are effortless to locate not to mention mostly more cost effective. I hunted and just couldn't get hold of this type of a really good number of recipes such as this anywhere. Find out more at the following truehealthreport.com/metabolic-cookbook-review/

    honestly i know im a bit late to the video but if you think about it this is easy af and yes i have done it. and fuck grammar im on hella adderall and dont have time for that shit rn. so there are 24 hours in a day and they did the 16/8 so 16 hours where you cant eat seems like a lot but when your asleep for at least 8 of that 16 that only 8 hours without eating. if you wake up at 6 you could eat from 6am-1pm then fast from 2pm-9pm and go to bed at 10 pm and sleeping the rest of the 8 hours. EZ AF.

    how the hell are these two "dying"? 16 off and an 8 hour window is sooo easy! Example: eat dinner at 8pm. and not again till 12pm. YOUR ONLY SKIPPING ONE MEAL! And with an 8 hour "on" window you can eat again at 8pm. THATS IT! EASY. NO BITCHING. Try a 48, or 72 hour juice and water only cleanse. Now that you can gripe about.

Though i have already been counting calories for the last 4 years and lost 25kgs from that. Hoping IF will help my snacking habits so I don't gain it all back.
