    -PK
    That's pretty much where I am at these days. One meal, eaten over maybe the course of three or four hours and a twenty or so hour fast. I came to pretty much the EXACT same conclusions that you did, albeit through a much less scientific route.

    I've been eating from noon to 8pm for about 5 months now. I really like it. I get more done in the morning and have great mental focus and very level energy levels (I was fat adapted before I started this but I think IF enhanced this). I have successfully used it as part of my strategy to get very lean without unpleasant hunger while maintaing/improving muscle mass.

    I find the daily IF better to manage. It's more a routine than an "oh, it's Thursday, sorry I can't eat today." I loosely follow it (I'll have coffee and a square of dark chocolate in the morning), but I won't say no to the occasional eggs and bacon being cooked up in the morning (I have such a nice boyfriend).
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.
