    How many of the ladies here IF?

    Primal Fuel
    Based on observations it seems to be something a lot of the men here do and a few ladies. I'm just curious to see how many ladies IF and do it on a regular basis? How long do you fast for?

    I've done 24-26 hour fasts three times in the last two weeks and I find it fairly easy to do.

    I do, infrequently, until I get hungry basically. Most of the time I'll fast simply because I can't be bothered to make something to eat in the mornings.
    So in answer to your question, probably around 3-4 times a week for about 17+ hours.

    I'm about the same as PixieKitten. A lot of the time I'm just not hungry when I get up and I like to workout fasted. Between my dogs and whatnot, most of the time I can't get my workout in until 9:30-10:00am or so. By that point, it doesn't make much sense to me to eat. I just wait until lunch. But it all depends. Before I started PB though if I didn't eat breakfast someone was going to die. Now, I just eat bacon and eggs (and steak, yummm) for lunch!

    I fast from 7pm to 11am most days. Then I eat at 11, 3, and 6--very helpful pattern for me.

    I have an eating window of 6-8 hours. Generally, I don't start eating until noon and then I have 1 or 2 meals. I flex my start time, depending on my schedule/activities.

    It took me a few weeks to realize that most of my hunger signals were from ghrelin surges and I wasn't really "hungry" for food, just hungry out of habit. Johnny writes about it here:You Will Be Hungry | The Lean Saloon

    This is me too - most days I'll eat dinner around 8 - 9 at night, then not eat anything again until 2-3 the next day because that's when I finally decide I'm hungry and have the motivation to actually do something about fixing food for myself.

    When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didnít understand the assignment.

    I told them they didnít understand life.

    I eat at 12pm-1pm and 6pm-7pm, ideally with no snacking but it tends to happen. This pattern makes me feel really good. I'd like to do some 24 hour fasts but I am surrounded by snack food at all hours of the day so if I don't eat a meal earlier on I'll just start shoveling those down.

    I fast once a week from 6pm Thursday nights to 6pm on Friday then I have a resonable dinner. It has helped with weight loss.

    I drink coffee with cream in the morning ... then eat lunch and dinner. On the weekends I will eat a late breakfast and early dinner and then fast from 4ish until the next day (not every weekend, though... just depends on how I feel).
