I don't eat less, I just eat less frequently. I get a very large number of calories in between 11am and 8pm (but the times vary). My breakfast alone is usually 1500 calories or more. When I was tracking such things, I was averaging a 3000+ calories a day. I was lifting heavy, taking long weighted walks and still workout fasted, with improvements on all levels still improving after 8 months of fasting. None of my clothes fit.
