Intermittent fasting/ paleo style/ fat loss

Hey guys! I'm finally starting to see some weight shed off me =] i have no weighed myself but i look leaner, finally it's been 7 weeks that i've been eating paleo with cheat meals once every 1-2 weeks. Anyways i'm considering to start Intermittent fasting, i'm seeing great things about it. I'm very active and am eating about 1,250 calories/day with one reefed day at 1,800 calories. that reefed day i keep my meals paleo and clean except for one meal, is my cheat meal. So if i were to incorporate IF to my current plan, i know i would basically just skip breakfast but honestly it'd be hard for me to get in 3 big meals from 12-8pm. I like to keep my meals smaller. If i were to have 3 of my normal sized meals a day that would bring me to only 950 calories. My question is, would that be so bad? or does anyone have any suggestions how i can do this? for fat loss and recovery after workouts. thanks! :]

IF can still be a good idea independent of weight loss. It seems that you still are looking for weight loss though so..

Seeing as your calories are already below maintenance If I were you I would skip breakfast and eat your lunch and dinner..but make them bigger than usual. definitely eat until your full!

Intermittent fasting is one of the best ways to lose weight and the benefits from it are huge. Intermittent fasting can also improve health and reduce the risk of illness.

If you are going to IF, I don't think you should try to eat abnormally on those days. IF, then just eat as you normally do. A lower calorie day isn't going to hurt you. Do your workout fasted, or some of it, and then eat after it, but eat like you regularly do. Maybe add a bit of carb to it.
