I am no expert, but if you plan to eat every day, I have only heard of either OMAD (one meal a day) or 16:8 (you can eat during a block of 8 hours a day but not the other 16). The purpose is to have large blocks of time when you are not eating. When I am fasting, I drink water or flavored seltzer - no diet soda. Also, you can have tea/coffee without sweetener. It also said no artificial sweetener, but I couldn't bear that. So, I do use artificial sweetener. Usually have just one cup of coffee in the AM and a cup of tea in the afternoon. As far as food, I follow a diet that is pretty much a Mediterranean, but I think you can choose what works best for you. Maybe others on this group will see your Q and have more extensive answers.

Thanks for the response. I was beginning to think that this group was in-active. I want to try elimate eating lunch. Just want to eat 2 meals a day, is that ok to do? Trying to read up on the dos and don't. You only eat one meal what do you eat and or drink during the day. I exercise in the morning, cardio, HIIT, Tabata, strenght training, etc, and I want to continue to exercise in the morning. But can you explain to me what I can do or not do especially regarding eating and drinking.

Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.

It has worked for me; so I recommend giving it a try. As you have probably read, there are different ways to approach this. I fast 2 days out of seven. I eat breakfast ,and then don't eat again until breakfast the next day. I could pick any meal to do this with, but breakfast works best for me. I have lost 37 lbs since August 1st. My losses are smaller now, but I continue to lose each week. In addition to the loss, I find the IF makes me much more mindful of food when I am not fasting and actually enjoying it more rather than mindlessly eating.

Hello Everyone: I've heard a lot of talk about Intermittent Fasting so I decided to give it a try. I've lost a great deal of weight and I seem to be stuck. The scales goes up and down in the same 5 pounds range. Also dieting for almost 2 years now, I feel myself getting tired of weighing and measuring and watching what I eat, and right now I only have about 25 pounds to lose. So I want to try the IF plan and at the same time learn to eat food again. I would appreciate any help that is given.
