    Doing great - lost the 10 and want to lose 5 more as a "margin." Keto breath is the only down side I've encountered, but that won't last much longer. This plan is so easy to stick to because the element of choice is controlled - it's gotten so I don't even think about food during the fast periods. Lots of energy. Those books you recommended are great. Congrats on being in maintenance mode, 45 lb down!

    Those unintentional weight losses - or weeks when you lose more than you expect - really keep the incentive up. It's a nice surprise to find out you can eat more calories on your maintenance plan than you figured, too!

    I just have to sing the praises of IF for losing belly fat. Even at my thinnest, I looked 20 lb heavier because of scoliosis and being stooped over, all organs pushed downward and sideways. Bloating and acid reflux were huge problems. After a few weeks on IF, which is basically a keto diet because the fast makes you burn fat instead of glucose, my abdomen is looking flatter than it has in years of only counting calories. My left leg has not been swollen since starting the IF plan. Keto breath is an issue, but breaking the fast early on days when I have appointments, etc. takes care of it. Only 2 more lb to lose and I'm actually having fun at this point. IF accommodates any dietary preference, just don't eat between certain hours or on specified days. It can be tailored and tweaked for any lifestyle, even on the fly when unexpected things come up. Slip-ups can be reversed right away. Big cheerleader here!

    agreed, IF is a fantastic sustainable lifestyle. imo, especially well suited for SCI.
    ive had a few pm's asking me about my weekends and overall weekly cals. below is my "rough" breakdown.
    im maintaining now, but actually still losing so im tweaking my cals weekly to level out. yes, my metabalism has drastically increased from IF.

    MWF[FAST DAYS 24 HR DINNER TO DINNER] 700 cal clean meal- dinner only
    t/th- 1200 clean cals
    sat/sun- 3800-4000 cals day. includes cocktails and ANY food i want, not clean at all.
    breakdown daily total- 1850 per day give or take 2-300 - im 6'2 46 yo 195 now.
    down 47 ish lbs....... once i level out i'll keep a 5lb buffer.

    That's great, having to tweak the plan in order to stop losing weight! My 5-lb margin will probably be reached next week, 2 to go. I'm going to have cocktails on that day, for sure!
