Please describe what you typically eat during that window. Do not say "whatever"
 Quoting: SinistarMcZaxxon


I'm on the same program, just started last week and lost about 4 lb the first week.

It's pretty easy, though I'm going to severely limit the carbs as well. I eat two meals a day, lunch and dinner, but dinner has to be finished by 7pm, that's when the pens are down. I'm now missing the "evening snack", which was probably responsible for an extra 10 lbs. at least.

I need to lose about 40 lbs. and this looks to be the best way to go.

The added bonus is I now freed up about 20-30 mins in the AM when I used to prepare food.
In the end, the truth is revealed. You might not accept it, but it will be right in front of you and undeniably true.

I'm spending less money on food. I quit soda, frichips, cake, sugar. Stopped opening fridge so often. Whole thought of food is gone.
 Quoting: Beautiful mind


Bingo. It's 98% mental and when the craving goes away...the fat goes with it. Eating is karma.

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
I do 18:6 with keto

But after 6 months I started at in the occasional low fat and high carb meal. I eat breakfast and lunch. Eat till I'm full. Hot tea or water with a splash of line when I'm in fasting. If really feel hungry, it's pickle juice or a pickle, or sauerkraut. But that's less than once a month.

Regular loss of weight and I'm eating like a king.

Egg, fast food, milk, juice, meat, fruits, vegetables. Sometimes I go without food till 2 or 3 pm.
 Quoting: Beautiful mind


I have been doing this for a while with good results as well. I usually have a teaspoon of walnut oil around 1:00pm to get my body burning fat for fuel, plus it is great for the heart and brain, AND it tastes awesome.. I also stay low carb high protein though.. No fast food for this guy.

Almost have my 6 pack back. I wasn't WAY overweight, but I was overweight. 6-3 and an athletic build, I was 213 2 months ago, I am 198 now.

I also do a 5 day split, but I don't take any days off.

Then nothing for 18 hours?

Coffee or water. I realized it was psychological thing. When consume all the time your brain gives you signal all the time to eat. You feel hungry every few hours. When you don't eat for many hours your body uses belly fat as fuel.

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
Couldn't lose it no matter how much run or train. Then started intermittent fasting since September. Lost 15 lbs with flat stomach. I chose 18/6 hour window. I eat whatever I want during 6 hours. I drink black coffee in the morning and drink water in the evening. Sleeping well.

I found if you work out intensely at 6 to 8 hour window after eating you are smashing your liver.

It is strained as it switches from food to glycogen. But once burning fat full blast liver gets a rest.

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
I had the same problem and was doing 16/8 as well and it helped for a while, but then it just stopped working. I'm not sure why.

So I upgraded the intermittent fasting to eating every other day. That was brutal and I lost a lot of weight doing it, but it's too hard to maintain, so now on fast days I just eat one meal, dinner.

As a result I've plateaued a bit.

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
Food has to taste good otherwise your not going to make it. I always finish with 1/2 cup Pure Leaf, sweet tea. Lots of popcorn got the ball rolling. It doesn't yoyo blood sugar like chips and pretzels. (keep yer corn lecture to yerself mkay) I'll drink 2 beers every 4th day. Lately the first meal is blueberries and a large bowl of popcorn. Usually beef and a vegetable for the 2nd meal. I'm 2-3 lb away from ideal weight, depends on the day.

Great job man!!!!

18/6 was a good choice!

I found although 16/8 made me feel great I didn't see incredible results until I stepped it up more to 20/4

20/4 Is the ultimate I think especially if you do a mild workout 3 times a week with nothing but Exercises using your own body weight like push-ups, squats, dips...throw in some light treadmill work or a nice hike/walk a few times a week and magic starts to happen

For people who want to really put some rocket fuel on everything do low calorie for 4 days (lower than maintenance intake whatever your weight is you can figure those numbers out with gooogle)....heavy calorie higher than maintenance three days in a row after that (no junk food whole natural foods). After a few weeks make sure your heavy calorie days don't land on the same days anymore to keep tricking the body from adapting. So you might extend your high calorie a couple days then start your lo-cal 4 day set again

Your metabolism will be incredible after a couple months and will be melting fat off

That's the old school tried and true way of losing weight and building muscle...all these other fads like Keto, Atkins, paleo, etc are just offshoots of it because the only way to really drop calories appropriately is to keep carbs under 50grams and elevate with natural fats from nuts, butter, non heated non seed oils without that starvin feeling

If we are all feeling our bests the evil scumsuckers out their lose of their power!!

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
This is a bad and dangerous diet if you have any hint of diabetes or blood sugar issues.

My wife falls in that category and she's required by her doctor to eat numerous small meals/snacks throughout the day. Otherwise she'll get dizzy or faint. Years ago she was overweight but since switching to a super healthy diet with smaller portions (and doing lots of walking) she's back to her old self.

We in the US are eating bigger and bigger portions which are being pushed by the food manufacturers and fast food places. Our fridges are overstuffed with unnecessary food.

20 years ago a typical muffin was about 1.5 oz and 210 calories. Now it's 4+ oz and over 700 calories. A cheeseburger was around 300 calories. Now it's at least 800 calories. Some McDonalds and Burger King burgers are over 1200 calories.

There are plenty of articles about how portion sizes have become ridiculously huge in this country.

Intermittent fasting absolutely works.

If you add a keto or carnivore diet to it, then you will lose body fat super fast.

But its not easy. It would require solid discipline and a lot of dedication.

Disagree. Intermittent fasting is indeed unsafe because of the severe spike in hypoglycemia during the fasting period. The best diet for diabetes is still low carb.

There are studies to prove that:

Excerpts:

"The reason people on insulin and sulfonylureas really cannot safely do intermittent fasting is because of the risk of hypoglycemia."

I do something similiar to that. I skip breakfast every morning and instead just have black coffee. I'll eat lunch and dinner, rinse and repeat daily. I basically fast for breakfast. My stomach is fairly flat, but not perfectly flat. I weigh 160 and I'm 5'10". I've been doing this for years.

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
How do you prevent getting a headache or the irritability/nausea feeling from low blood sugar? If I don’t eat, I definitely get a headache and sometimes feel nauseous.
 Quoting: Little Red Hen


I was doing 2 meals a day, laying off the carbs, and doing very well, slimming down, feeling better.

I just kept putting off breakfast until lunch time, nothing severe.

Then I went to a baby shower and ate some of that lovely cake, and it has been almost a year getting back into the routing. I can get into a real sugar binge at the drop of a hat/ My blood sugar has been going up and down and I've not been feeling very energetic, just kind of Yuk .

So back to 2 meals a day which does not bring on the low blood sugar and also not the cravings. Maybe I will move to OMAD later, but for now, I just want to get stabilized here and begin to experience the benefits again.

I do eat a sizable lunch, lots of cheese or cottage cheese and veggies, peanut butter (yes, raw peanut butter), curried lentils from Costco. The lentils are very helpful in stabilizing blood sugar. I would suggest plugging them in on a daily basis to avoid the low blood sugar blues.

Try sipping a little apple cider vinegar in water before eating. Maybe 3-4 tablespoons in 1 cup water, a weak solution. It helps to do away with that. Your food gets digested with that little bit of extra acid.

i have been making waist beads... they go way back in history to the egyptians i think.

they are for women only and are used for weight control (and decoration).

when they slide up, you have gained weight and when they slide low you are losing.

they are beautiful, designs and colors are unlimited, they do help women lose weight without a scale and they make you feel very sexy.

Re: I lost my belly fat by intermittent fasting
Anybody heard of "Every Other Day Diet?"

Anybody ever tried it? I went that way for a couple weeks, but there's too much chaos in my life/home right now for me to stay on this. It seems simple enough. One day - eat "normal" (altho you probably want to eat less than you are now), then next day you keep calories down to 400-500. It makes sense (and was easy to do), cause when you want to eat something on diet day, you can tell yourself, "Just wait 24 hours, then you can have it." Thing is: next day (NON-diet day), you mostly don't want the thing you were craving the day before, so you forego it.

And once you start eating (on diet days) only about 500 calories, you find it's not that hard to eat less calories on non-diet days.

If I ever get my life back, I'll try this again. Seems easier - to me - than this intermittent fasting.

Fasting right now. Drank herb tea on day one, herb tea on day 2 and a homemade chicken soup at night. I'm so hungry. Im at 48 hrs, I need one more day. I hope I can make it.
