Intermittent Fasting

Anyone else doing Intermittent Fasting? What's your regimen? What do you think?
I've been doing it for about 2mo and have lost 15lbs, I usually fast for 18-20hrs/day.

I do a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. I started the keto diet around the first of the year and started intermittent fasting about 3 months ago after seeing my wife's results on it. I usually go ~18 hours without eating. The wife does one-meal-a-day (OMAD). I've lost ~45 pounds so far this year. I've got a few more pounds to lose, but I'm sticking with it primarily for the health benefits (autophagy) and the way I feel.

Exactly when I am doing.

biggest challenge is coffee in the morning. For Autophagy, in my opinion coffee breaks the fast.


Do you follow Dr Peter Attia?

GREAT result! I tried OMAD, but I end up feeling hungry the next day during my fast. For, me I.F. is just a lot easier to maintain than counting macros, specific diet.

I've been doing this for about a month, I've lost 10 lbs, I was hungry for the first week or so but can easily go 16-18 hours now. Don't stick to it n the weekend either.

I drink my coffee black so from what I understand that has zero impact.

I've been doing it for two years now. I don't feel like it's negatively impacted my energy levels or my performance. I go pretty hard at the gym and my numbers have gone up since. While I didn't do the IF to lose weight, I have happily maintained my weight at 170#. I have tried to do IF + keto, I didn't like how dehydrated I felt(I drink plenty of water).

I do 18 hours no food on the weekdays and 16 hours on the weekend but typically it doesn't matter because I'll have my meal before I sleep and the day will reset. I do drink black coffee in the morning, I don't believe it breaks the fast either.

I agree with everyone here, I don't think black coffee is a breaker.
Are there any "gurus" or youtube channels y'all like i.e. Thomas DeLauer or Fledge Fitness?

I started about 4 weeks ago so I could get down on the weight and be able to still run. 200+ was just murdering my lower extremities, and I almost quit soccer (I still LOVE playing) because the Saturday morning plantar fasciitis was BRUTAL.

I lost 10 real quick, then have hit a plateau. Dinner is normally done by 6, 6:30 then I eat again at noon.

I'm insulin-dependent diabetic, so it was kinda scary for me to "skip" a meal, and I found that even with a fasting bs in a good range, I still need to take a small bolus around 8 if I wanted to maintain that respectable bs.

In the morning I have a cup of decaf with some creamer, and a yakult.

I was hungry the first couple days, but soon I adjusted and then was hangry for lunch. Had to concentrate on SLOWLY eating that first meal. Energy actually went up, I wasn't tired all the time at work.

This week, I regressed. I'm on my 3rd foofy caramel macciato this week, and actually had a breakfast sandwich with that on Monday. Oh, and I dozed off a few times that morning. . .

Hang in there, it gets a lot better. I've heard a couple studies actually show better bs control with IF.

Do you follow Dr Peter Attia?
From what I have read, black coffee (nothing added whatsoever), which is what I drink in the morning, doesn't break the fast nor does it affect autophagy. Do you have evidence to the contrary?

The following link and associated references suggests coffee has the opposite effect - it enhances autophagy.

I am not familiar with Dr. Peter Attia.

These are doctors I subscribe to and follow on youtube that promote a ketogenic diet + intermittent fasting:

Dr. Jason Fung
Dr. Sten Ekberg
Dr. Eric Berg

I don't really count macros, but rather just limit or avoid foods that stimulate a large insulin release. No grains of any kind, period. I also try to get plenty of healthy fats in things like locally grown eggs from pasture raised chickens, beef, pork and wild caught salmon and sardines. I eat lots of salads with avocados throw in to get extra fat intake and plenty of olive oil based dressing. I never count how many carbs are in a salad as the fiber far outweighs the digestible carbohydrate in green leafy vegetables. We cook with coconut oil, olive oil, and lard that I render at home. We avoid seed oils like soy and corn oil.

I did IF for 3 months while I was cutting weight, lost 30 lbs. I stuck to an 8-hour eating window (many times less) and made sure that the very first thing I ate was a banana (with nuts) every day.

Worked wonders for me.

Life app is great. I think Fung is one of the leading "thinkers" in IF.

Familiar w Fung, but also check out Rhonda Patrick. The real challenge, no objective measurement of autophagy yet, but a lot of good research in that direction.
