As to the "OK"...thing. It was just to point out that WHAT food you eat still matters.

I'm glad you asked....check this out http://cogitoergoedo.com/2012/04/22/intermittent-fasting-a-primer/. Scroll down to Why would you fast intermittently/The scientific answer. He lays out the changes noted from a study on Ramadan fasting and the physiological/metabolic effects. I can't find the original literature off hand, but this sums it up. Not to mention his site is completely devoted to the science of fasting.

Thanks you guys! And well, I'm not eating a bucket load (but I got your point haha). For example, today I consumed a kiwi and a half a peach diced over a salad. I am making sure to get lots of fats and protein in though. Kabobs and grilled eggplant for my first meal and leftovers with a diced peach over a 2 parts olive oil/1 part balsamic vinegar salad with pecans. – Farrah 25 mins ago

By "what you regularly eat"; I eat paleo to begin with already.

What type of physiological changes? and what do you mean by, "OK"? Is there a better strategy I don't know of?

True......I seem to tollerate more carbs with a narrow eating window.

Holy crap batman, not this fructose nonsense again. Farrah, don't worry about it. The amount you'll get from eating even a bucket of fruit is not going to make your leptin invisible or whatever other nonsense Lustig is pushing these days. @BoneBrothFast: Who cares if it stops ketosis? Ketosis is not a prerequisite for fat loss by any stretch of the imagination. Once again Farrah, DON'T WORRY.

Honestly fruit is not good for weight loss and fructose pretty much stops ketosis (not a good thing if you're looking for weight loss.) I don't see why fruit would be allowed during IF when other foods are not. Fruit is a whole food. If you're consuming food during IF you're not doing IF.

Thank you for the brief answer! I can't help but think that the added fructose may slow my weight loss. Am I wrong? Either way, it's not like 1 kiwi is going to really slow me down THAT much, right?

Current goal is weight loss. I have been paleo for about a year and half now and would like to increase my results. Introduced Intermittent Fasting into my diet yesterday. Today is my second day. I am fasting from 11pm-4pm, eating from 4pm-11pm. During my eating time, I can usually only eat two meals (only hungry enough for two meals without feeling over-full).

Depends on your goals with IF and your current regimen. Care to elaborate?

Eat what you regularly eat, keep it clean and don't overeat. I.F. is a great tool when it comes to losing weight and maintaining a good state of health.

As a weight loss strategy IF'ing is OK, but it definitely contributes to some physiological changes. So back to your question ....yes you can eat fruit (IF'ing allows for a bit more leeway in this regard IMO), just don't forget to eat all the other stuff.

Studies on fasting seem to indicate positive physiological changes regardless of the makeup of the meal (some studies show the same calories and foods consumed in that smaller window). Its kinda cool, cause it seems just limiting the hormonal array associated with processing food has a positive effect.

Have you looked at any of the IF sites liked "Leangains"? -http://www.leangains.com/2010/04/leangains-guide.html Another useful IF link -http://rippedbody.jp/ The IF calculator is useful for determining your macronutrient intake. -http://www.1percentedge.com/ifcalc/

Hope this helps.
