    Is this beginner stage IF?

    I haven't been hungry lately, so no after dinner snacking. That means I go from ~6pm to ~7:30am without eating. I do then still eat 3 meals. Is this considered fasting, or do I need to actually drop a meal? Really just curious as I'm currently breastfeeding so not too worried about major fat loss.

    i would call that a fast. i think the magic number seems to be 14-16 hours fasting, so you're pretty close. if you want to extend it a bit, try pushing breakfast a little later and eating dinner just a little earlier, and see how that works for you. otherwise, you're doing just fine.

    Sounds good to me, I'd agree with primalrob and say anything around the 14 hours plus mark is probably approaching a fast. Play with it, see what works, fingers crossed for you!
