By sep. 19 (28 days), i had lost the 10 lbs that i wanted to lose, and went on to lose 5 more as a margin. If you add up the fasting hours per week on 16/8 (16 hours fasting x 7 days =112 hours), the fasting hours actually come out to more than the full-day fast plan. I think the choice might come down to lifestyle and preference. But i'm no expert - and i'm not great at math, either, so i hope i've crunched the numbers correctly.

    Right, that could be the key to how it's working with your metabolism. It's fascinating to me that IF is so versatile - just about everyone can find a way to tweak it so that it works with their lifestyles, as long as extended, consistent hours of fasting are built into the tweaks.

    I'm not good about frequent weighings as I only have a floor scale in the garage so I have to get in my manual chair, weigh me in it, then get my wife to weight the chair (weight varies with what's in my huge under-seat bag). I don't use my manual chair much during the week as I use a standing power chair at work along with a standing desk so I can vary my position throughout the day.

    Been doing IF as well for a few months. Staying away from the scale and not counting calories though. A shirt that was tight AF is now loose. I can really see it in my face and neck.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Yay lyniffer! That's fantastic! Are you doing a full-day fast plan, or a variation of 16/8?

    Well, admittedly this is easier while sick - lol. The longest I fasted was 53hrs. Normally I like to go 30hrs, then eat. Essentially I'm sticking to every other day.
