    Guess I've been inadvertently doing it for a few years now. On days when I'm on my own schedule and not particularly active physically it's a snack around mid-afternoon and a late evening full meal. It's just because that's usually when I'm in the mood to prepare something and eat it, not angling for particular health/weight benefits, both were OK before I started doing it and still are.

    i will say, that for most of my adult life, for at least 30 years, i have only eaten one meal a day– dinner and two cups of coffee in the morning. people used to say i was hurting my body, but i was always healthy,, so i knew it was BS. i ate primarily whole foods, plant based diet (love salads, no cheeze and watch the dressing) with limited amounts of animal protein. and i was always slim 5' 4" between 115 – 120. i'm trying to return to that model so, i think, this is a really great way to eat. the problem comes when you share a house with other people and what's in the pantry works against your will power– which is very real. sometime the craving for something salty, crunchy or sweet can derail your efforts. but i would say that if you can get past them initially, you can get to the point (maybe a few days to a week) where your body will be used to the new way you eat and adapt to it. with any change in diet it's the first 3 days that are maddening. haha. good luck to everyone and be strong. 😉

    Dr. Mike, as a female, my experience is that fasting, particularly intermittent fasting wreaked havoc on my hormones. It’s taken me one full year to finally regulate my hormones because I chose to do it naturally. It was a terrible experience, it’s definitely not for everyone, particularly women.!!! Please look into it in depth if you’re a woman.

    I never eat after 9 pm and I don't eat breakfast before school (I'm eating again at 2 pm) but if I don't eat at 2 pm, then my blood sugar is rushing down and I'm forced to eat/drink (diabetic type 1). I'm on a diet since 4 months and I already lost 5 kg (I'm not overweight, I just want to take down some weight, eat healthy and build up some muscles after that) but I'm so stressed out, because I often have school in the afternoon and I don't eat in school. Eating the right meals is so hard, so I am looking for a way that I don't have to eat during the day. Is anyone a type 1 diabetic and has some experience with fasting?

I’m working out daily and eating around 900 to 1000 calories a day but I’m doing the eating every 3 hours diet and I’ve lost about 7 pounds in the past month. Should I keep with this or try fasting?

    I retired 31 December, 2015. I weighed 270 pounds, give or take (6' tall). Since then, I significantly reduced crappy carb intake. I began time-restricted eating. Breakfast consists of half-a-pot of coffee, neat. I can usually count on one hand the number of sugared soft drinks I drink in a year. Water, unsweetened tea and neat coffee are my drinks of choice. I'm down to 230 pounds and have every intent to continue losing weight. My perfect weight is 165 pounds but I think that unlikely at 62 years of age. I'd be overjoyed to attain 190 pounds. Three more years and I should be there. My diet isn't the best and I don't exercise nearly enough but I hope I can get off of diabetes and blood pressure control meds.

    In the beginning of the video you stated that IF isn’t a new thing and has been a reality since the beginning of ages, then at 4 minutes you went on to say we don’t know of any long term side effects or effectiveness in the diet. That kind of threw me off.

    The way I see it is since the literal beginning of time humans bodies were only meant for IF, we are meant to be hunter gatherers going days between meals, our bodies have not been in their prime because of the ease of access and convenience of food being everywhere. I can’t see IF ever being detrimental to our bodies. Correct me if I’m wrong… I’m sure certain health problems like diabetes can’t sustain an IF diet, but if we were on IF since birth I doubt diabetes would even exist unless there was some form of pancreatic damage.

    I do circadian fasting, which kinda reversed from common IF, since I just skip dinner. I don't really aim for weight loss, but more of a better balance on hormones and insulin, as well as fixing my insomnia. So far, it's a wonder . I don't feel midday fatigue anymore, and I could sleep normally — albeit a lil bit earlier, and it has been undisturbed at all. I stop my craving, which usually happen in late afternoon, by drinking coffee and a lot of water, and stop seeing any foodporn.

    It's not for everyone, I understand. There has been some people that also do extreme fasting for a couple days in a week, like 24 or even 72 hours of no meal. Imo, I won't try it, since it's a bit bordering to eating disorder, and being someone with body dysmorphia, it could do more harm for me.

    Eat healthy doesn't mean you have to punish yourself.

    3:36:Side Effects: Yes you will experience side effects, that’s just within the first couple weeks of fasting though. That’s your body cleansing, actually fully detoxing and that’s why people will experience those symptoms. Because of all the bullshit we have put into our bodies and how frequently we have been eating over the last how ever many years. Your body when fasting is changing into a whole new mechanism. From using glucose for fuel to using ketones for fuel, a much healthier fuel source that provides more energy than glucose. Once you become fast adapted you will only experience those same symptoms if you consume junk again. What you put in is what you’ll get out.

    I've been doing IF since February and I've lost alot of weight like 60 pounds in 8 months. I also work out 6 days a week during that period of time as well. This diet is one of the hardest to maintain in the beginning stages because as someone who has always been obese and has had struggles with my diet this puts a shock on your body. Kind of makes you feel as though you are a drug addict. But the benefits are amazing I feel better less cloudy thoughts and overall more energy. Some of the downfalls he speaks of are true I do have headaches from time to time. Also have some really bad cravings that I give into sometimes as well. Also forgot to mention that I dont just throw food in my mouth for 8 hour window either I eat one big meal ranging from 1000-1700 calories then call it an evening. So if you are eating more then three meals worth of calories in the 8 hour window might give you different results.
