    To anyone that hasn't dabbled in the 24-36 hour range yet, I encourage you to try it out. It almost feels like I'm on a high when I start to hit that point. Love it.

    Hi everyone. I'm an experienced Paleo eater who is trying Fast 5 to lose some weight. Today is my 5th day with an eating window from 4-9p.m. I am still starting to lose concentration and feel pretty darn hungry around 2 every day. I'd love some feedback about how long I can expect this to continue. I felt great this morning but it faded and I'm still waiting for that all-day energy high!

    Thanks.

    "Fast 5"...is that what it's called? Seems like every damn time I identify a hack that works for me, someone's got to go slapping a label on it.

    Start your window at 2:00-7:00. In a few days, make it 2:30-7:30~ then 3:00-8:00. By that time, it's your choice if you want to take it later~ if 30 min. increments are too difficult, do 15 min. There isn't any rush and you don't even need to change it if you're more comfortable having an earlier window.

    I might do this, but my window will have to be earlier as I go to Crossfit at 6.30pm, and don't eat too close. Am thinking 11-4 maybe.
    It will still work won't it?

    Thanks, Nady! I was trying to "train" myself for 4-9 because my husband doesn't get home until 7 and we usually eat around 7:30. But there is no reason I can't work up to 7. Any feedback on how long it might take to get the amazing, non-hungry energy?

    Thanks again.

    Ok, today the headache started and I find myself thinking about what I will eat when my window open...hmmm the scale at the docs was not kind. Can not wait to see the results kick in.

    Are people in this thread still working out and how does fast-5 effect your workouts? If you choose a later window like 4-9 or 5-10, is it hard to workout in the morning? Do you feel hungrier if you workout vs not working out?

    I usually lift around 12-1PM, then go about the rest of my day and eat around 6PM. Martin Berkhan recommends a Branch Chain Amino Acid supplement every other hour if you do that. I've tried it both ways and I don't really think it's necessary. Enhanced protein synthesis persists up to 24 hours after heavy lifting anyways.
