intermittent fasting with breakfast

Answered on July 27, 2014

Does anyone here do intermittent fasting by eating breakfast and lunch but no supper. I find it easier to do this because I often do exercise in the evening after work (generally martial arts classes) and it's hard to fit in a meal afterwards and not be eating super late in the evening. I just wondered if any of the benefits of intermittent fasting are lost by doing it this way around.

I'm thinking of giving Kruse's leptin protocol a shot which is basically doing what you're doing but keto aswell, should be interesting, I like the idea of fasting at dinner even though fasting at breakfast/lunch comes more naturally to me.

I'm never hungry that's the problem! I eat about 1.5 hours after I get up. Then eat later leaving plenty of time for my food to go down before I have to be bopping about.

I myself only eat breakfast, which isn't porridge, but contain lots of meat, fat and decent amount carbs. I useally eat organs as well, such as kidney, liver and tounge. On a workout day I sometimes eat something meaty in the evening. Works for me.

Calorically thick breakfast lose more weight than the individuals who didn't. The espoused theory for the results was that the higher caloric admission at a young hour in the day headed individuals to nibble less frequently and brought down caloric admission generally. A bigger breakfast prompts more level general caloric admission. On the off chance that weight reduction descends to "calories in" versus "calories out," then the arrangement of the sustenance shouldn't matter.

It sounds like you eat when you're hungry and stop when you're full.

Are you trying to adhere to a specific eating window? I myself IF 16/8 regularly, not because I was trying, but it's the time frame that suits me naturally.

When I eat, I have my biggest meal for the day first, and I have it roughly 2.5 hrs after I've awoken. The meal itself is usually 60% of my calories for the day (1200-ish) and then I eat about 6-7 hours later...to me, this is normal.

Truth.

I ask because there seems to be a lot of talk about breakfast being the least important and your body being more ready for food later in the day. I don't eat the way on do on purpose to fast, I simply do it because it is convenient. I'm not super hungry in the morning but it's my main chance for a hot home cooked meal. And then because I'm moving around all evening I eat lunch because my digestive system seems to be very slow and I like food to have a chance to go down.

As long as you're getting good sleep on an empty stomach then i'd imagine the benefits might be even better then someone doing the reverse like myself, i skip breakfast/lunch & just eat dinner. When we sleep our body obviously rests & repairs, if you're also giving your digestive system a rest at the same time i'd imagine that your body can focus even more on rest/repair during sleep. I'd imagine over time that you'd need less sleep aswell for the reasons above and whenever i do a 3-5 day fast by the end of it i only need a few hours.
