Quick hello, I have been doing intermittent fasting and healthy keto for over a year now. I have lost 70 pounds since Feb 5, 2019 and have tried other eating plans with the IF. I eat two meals a day, first meal depends on when I had my last meal, so basically, its between 10 and 12, since I will eat supper between 5 and 8. Occasionally, I will have a snack of peanuts or pork rinds in between meals but in order to get the benefits of fasting I hardly ever snack. I am after the growth hormone that will burn fat, tighten your skin and other benefits that come with fasting beyond 12 hours. I think eating healthy keto is the eating plan that works best with IT in order to not get hungry. Obviously, the less calories you consume the more you will lose. Fat and protein calories will stay with you longer and keep you from getting hungry. Healthy fats include eggs, avocado, olive oil, butter, ghee avocado and coconut oils, nuts, meat fat in moderation(includes bacon and beef). For example, first meal (breakfast because I love the breakfast foods) 2 eggs, ham, bacon or sausage up to 4 OZ. 1/4 avocado, 1 slice of keto toast (I make it or buy thinslim zero carb bread), pat of butter. Drink minimum 64 oz water plus take vitamin, magnesium and potassium supplement. Green tea, coffee, regular and decaf. Second meal is 4-6 ounces of protein, 3 cups salad or cruciferous vegetables, I like rice cauliflower or smashed cauliflower with cheese and almond milk in place of potatoes. Full fat dressings no more than 2 C per serving of 2 T. I have dozens of recipes from on line at drberg.com, and a few other websites, blogs I subscribe to. Recently I have added vshred fat loss extreme workouts to my walking regimen. I think you could use weight watchers new purple food plan with IF and make that work for you, however, they want you to eat 5 small meals a day every three hours to avoid getting hungry but you could start eating at 10 and end at 6 and eat all your meals in that 8 hour window since two of the meals are actually snacks. Check it out, it lets you have a lot more carbs but mostly they are vegetables and whole grains so not too bad, just depends on what works best with you. Still lose about 2 pounds a week. Hope it has been working for you. Good luck.
Wherever I go, that's where I will be.
