I agree. If you're jumping into a 20+ hour fast, it's no wonder you're hungry. It won't kill you - and it might even give you some valuable information about how to handle hunger - but that's a big step to take all at once.

I average 1400 cal and 110g carbs/day, with fairly steady weight loss.
Is weight loss your primary movitator for IF? I find autophagy to be a much stronger motivator for me. Thinking about my body cleaning up all my spent mitochondria is a great distraction from hunger.
