Hack my (almost) intermittent fast

B: coffee with heavy cream / grass-fed butter + MCT L: 1 avocado D: a LOT of quality protein & green leafy veggies (but within reason)

So my question is, is there anything wrong with having that avocado at noon? I figured since it was mostly fat and had minimal carbs + protein, then it shouldn't do much to stimulate insulin and consequently, my appetite. I also need to find a way to incorporate more mono-unsaturated fat into my diet so any suggestions would be appreciated!

For the record, I have 5 pounds to lose at most and I found that this helps control my appetite. I just wanted to know if people knew of ways to improve/hack this meal plan.

IF you are indeed a fat burner, you should not need to eat pure fat for energy, b/c your body will be efficient at tapping into its own for fuel.

Needless to say, I personally would not eat the avocado. And what you are doing does not resemble IF. Fasting means not taking in calories and using your body's reserves for energy. IT does not mean "not stimulating insulin" like so many on here seem to be believe.

I would improve your plan by actually fasting for a certain window (16-20 hours) and then eating real meals during your 4-8 hour eating window.

Hope that helps clear some things up.
