I am looking for a way to lose the extra weight that is sustainable in the long term and won't have me want to quit in a year or so....I think maybe intermittent fasting is it....
I am starting at 97kg (new scale 105kg) on 1 Jan 2019 with 36 hrs fasting three times a week while doing 16:8 the rest of the week. Let's see how it goes....

Update 28jan19 (down 3kg - 6.6lbs)
For the next 4 weeks I will be doing straight 16:8 everyday...

Update 4 Feb 2019 - I am gaining so I am changing it up to OMAD - one meal a day)

Update 25 Feb 2019 - since Jan 1st I have lost a total 9.2 kg (20.28lbs), 3kg (6.6lbs) in Jan and 6.2kg (13.67lbs) in Feb.

Update 3March19 - I have been doing mostly 20:4 fasting the past week, with a few days off fasting (3days) and keto. I weigh 95kg (209lbs) down 1.2kg (2.6lbs) since last week (I have a new scale so I had to adjust my weight accordingly). I will keep doing 20:4 with 1 or 2 days 24hr fast weekly for the rest of the month.

Update 7April2019 - Not very strict with the fasting this month, tried to stay on OMAD but mostly did 16:8 and had alot of carb days that i went off Keto. Weigh in at end of the month 90.4kg (199.29lbs) woohoo one-derland!! that's a loss of 4.6kg (10.14lbs).
Will continue with OMAD as much as possible with twice weekly 36hr fasts.

Update 2May19: April didnt go too good with the planned schedule. Mostly did OMAD but not very KETO this month, as you can see with the loss of only 0.5kg for the whole month. Still a loss though finally went below 90kg! I havent been here in so long. 89.9kg
I have to do better in May. I will try and maintain ketosis for the entire month of May and do my 3x36hr water fasts every week while keeping to 20:4 the rest of the week. Update8May19 - been doing OMAD most of the week, but struggling to maintain ketosis. Havent fasted 36hrs all week. I will keep trying

Update 1 June2019:
The first 2 weeks of the month didnt see any loss, i stayed OMAD for those two weeks but didnt do any longer fasts. I then figured I should up my game a bit so I started doing 2 x 36hrs fasts for the next two weeks and started seeing losses immediately. I initially wanted to do 3x36hrs but since i saw results with the twice weekly, i decided to keep it at that until my next plateau. So I lost 2.7kg (5.94lbs) basically over the last 2 weeks of the month. Current weight 87.2kg (191.84lbs)
