any tips and advice would be appreciated. I suffer from mild anxiety but I drink chamomile tea to calm me down and it really helps. I am good at occupying time during the fasting period and I can stay busy. Should I be aight? Ill be eating around 2,000 calories a day. I heard some people go crazy during it...shouild I still aim to lose a pound a week?

I been doing it for a while now

did three 24 hour fast back to back. The morning after my first 24 hour fast i had lost 5lbs off my total weight. dont get too excited as the first initial pounds are mostly water but once it picks ups you WILL see great results. Trust me. Macronutrients arent so important right now, just eat at a caloric deficit and keep fasting, patience is the biggest test on IF just wait it out and stay persistent and he results are coming

been doing it since this past wednesday. If your really on your calories and keep track of what you eat you should be good. I was good till this morning I had a crazy hunger pain. I just started drinking green tea 2 days ago. Believe me that makes a big a$s difference. Im not a cofee guy and plus it can mess up your teeth so I think Green Tea is the best appetite stopper. I drink it when I wake up and sleep. I dont excercise fasted so I don worry to much about bcaas or protein powder. Tho I have some that I will use.

Thinking bout starting this next month, 6 am workouts before going to work with my feed period from 11am to 7pm. I take BCAA's intra workout, and I've heard this doesn't break the fast. So I'ma give it a shot.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I dunno.. but Hodgetwins are right... All you're basically doing is skipping breakfast lol... I lost 5lbs the first week (Shooting for about 1-2 pounds a week but no matter what I seem to dip pretty heavily... Even eating like a king). I have struggles eating breakfast anyway (because of school) so it works pretty easily for me

Started like maybe 2 weeks ago..I feel great man, I get up early go to the gym 4 days out the week work out on an empty stomach, come home and do my work around the house and don't usually get my first meal in for about 1 1/2 2 hours after I finished working out. I usually have a 4-6 hour eating window since I've never been a heavy eater anyway and it work perfect for me.

The hunger pains and shyt. A lot of it is mental with some people acting all weak after a few hours and so on and then some people tend to over eat when they start the fast

this was me in the beginning.

you start justifying and looking for reasons to give in to urges.

my first few days i went from 244, 237, then 235. keep in mind I wore the exact same gym clothes everyday

another story i want to share is that I was unknowingly doing intermitten fasting back in 2009 when i had first started a new job. I had no disposable income to eat during lunch breaks, just enough to get to and from work until my first paycheck. I had no choice but to eat only during the evening when i got home after intense manual labor outside . My family was shocked to see how the weight was falling off of me. My face was getting a bit flushed my neck and forearms were getting more vascular and i had superb energy despite working from 8 to 5 with nothing to eat. And when I did eat it was mostly whatever was cooking or leftover like pot roast, beef and noodles and i would slam down a couple large cups of some fake kool-aid drink mix. I didnt think anything of it and as soon i got my first check I it was back to eating #### all day and spiking my insulin levels from sun up to sun down. I though it was the pysical work alone responsible for the weight loss, but the one factor that changed when i gained all my fat back was that i was eating #### like pizzas and 32 oz smoothies all day despite doing the same physical labor.

so im back at square one and now looking back i see why i lost the weight

SMH at believing that if i didnt give in to my psychological cravings every time i felt what i percieved as "hunger" was gonna starve to de@th despit i was prolly at my healthiest and leanest when i was surviving off whatever was left in the fridge and only eating in the evening.

Don't sit up thinking about the food you want Drink a big a$s glass of cold water and do some type of physical activity or something. Hit some push ups or sit ups and chill....
