    my uneducated but probably wise opinion(lol) is that you have a damaged metabolism...IF will only make that worse and your body will hold onto whatever you give it. this is especially true considering you BF and gain is in your love handles. i recommend you stop IF immediately and start eating throughout the day....get fixed and maybe try IF ...ONCE a week

      When you guys first IF'd was it difficult to get to 8 hours or more? Also, has anyone seen great results with IF and weight loss?

        Did you eat right before you went to bed AND right when you got up? Confused how you wouldn't have gone at least 8 hours prior PB.

        I'm only occasionally IFing, since I loves me some cream and coffee in the AM, and I try to eat dinner by 6 at the latest, but that puts my feeding window at about 11 hours. My goal for now is to switch to green tea a few days a week, then just grab lunch at the regular time, noon-ish. I wanna scare my fat cells.
        Because if you didn't know, of that is life made: only of moments; Don't lose the now.

          added question......what if you lift weights 5 days and sprint 3-4 days per week? I am an assistant strength coach at a college and need to be working out this much. My lifts are fairly short and to the point but I would love to try IF to lose the extra fat. I basically lift for one hour 5 days per week and then sprint either 12 hrs later or 12 hrs b4 a lift. What would be a good schedule for IF? trying to lose BF.

            Ok. May have damaged metabolism. What do you mean by damaged metabolism and "get fixed"? Did you mean that I have messed up my metabolism rate with my IF diet and eating as you suggest, may reset my metabolism to burning more calories thus reducing BF? I do have a little fat increase in the front of my belly, too.

              too many calories can increase BF
              too few calories can cause stress and thus increase BF


              overtraining can cause stress and increase BF
              and on and on and on.......

              so many ways that this can happen! And, IF tends to exscacerbate and magnify any of these problems as well. I suggest posting a thread with as much information about yourself and your diet and lifestyle as you can to get the best possible answers, then you will be all set and can continue with IF and see progress.
              Thanks for the suggestions. Just curious: How do you know if IF can create problems with BF? I've never seen anything that suggests IF can become a problem with BF.

                its not that the IF itself is causing increases in BF. Its that it is often implemented unwisely, before other, more important parameters, such as adequate sleep and nutrition, are dialed in. IF is not a quick fix. For IF to work, the other aspects of your health need to be pretty much in order first. IF tends to magnify any stress or nutritional deficiencies, thus increasing BF through indirect mechanisms.

                  Thanks for your insight! I don't recall seeing prior to this, that if a person is not getting enough sleep, etc., then IF could magnify the BF issue. Interesting thoughts.

                    i meant STOP IF altogeter.....if your gaining weight and fat obviously it is not working for you. you cant 'make it work' just go back to primal how you did before
