Thanks for that info. I don't see anything about alcohol though. Assuming one is leptin sensitive, then how does alcohol affect IF?

I was just working from personal experience on b. there. I'm a big fan of the stuff personally, but alcohol has caused a cascade of sugar and then bread cravings in me before. I think once you've put your sugar cravings to sleep it shouldn't be a problem though.

Don't get me wrong, I wholeheartedly agree with your answer (but I think the first point is the end of it). I just get a little tired of hearing the "don't have alcohol... because you might eat something else" argument. Maybe I'm just an outlier and people really do have issues with alcohol and self control, but alcohol tends to have the opposite effect on my appetite. It's also a way of dodging the question altogether. "I can't tell you whether alcohol is good or bad, but 50% of people have a resulting action that is bad so I'm just going to call it bad." Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

Context certainly plays a role here. He says he just started fasting, if he's not deeply keto I think he'd feel like he was starving.

Do people really lose control that badly with alcohol? I'd reckon that alcohol has reduced the amount of "cheat" food I've consumed over the long haul. I can see social situation plus alcohol being a bad idea, but just alcohol only leads to poor food choices when I'm absolutely starving.

a) I don't think it would be a fast anymore. Booze has calories.

b) It all depends on if that one drink is going lower your inhibitions enough for you call Dominos and then eat a whole pizza.

I went to a wedding in the fasted state this summer. I was drunk before I had finished my first glass of champagne, it was ridiculous. I would not do it again. Next time I know I will be having alcohol I will eat a steak with heaps of butter before.

All depends on your definition of "intermittent." As Bill Clinton sort of said, once upon a time.
