    You know, I kind of agree with this. IMO, unless you are doing at least 24 hours+, all you are doing is skipping a meal or two. Don't get me wrong, that's a good thing to do, but it's not a fast.

    To the OP if they are still alive and interested, IFing should be something that evolves naturally from not being hungry as often. Instead of watching the clock saying, "I can eat in exactly 47 minutes.....46......", you should be looking at your watch and saying, "Wow, it's 4pm already. Have I had anything to eat today? I guess not. OK, that can wait til dinner."

    Yep this

    I'm psyched that I completed a 2 hour IF today between lunch and a snack I had at 2:30. I think I will celebrate by measuring my body fat.

    It's good you got through day 1 of IF but it's more about long term benefits, I feel. So consider it a success and start figuring out how to do it more consistently and/or longer without feeling effects. I IF everyday and have gone 24hrs+ without true hunger (I have learned what a pang is vs. hunger), but the question for me is whether or not I want to or need to go to 24+. I like to workout in some form everyday if its light, heavy, fast walking, stretching...so longer term fasting has worried me. Is there any reason to do some consistent regimen of 24 hr+ fasts vs. the 18-20 I do everyday now?
