The team seems dead, funny since fasting of all sorts is so hot now.
Anyway, itís not May, but thereís not a June thread, and Iíve been chastised in other groups not to start the temporal threads as itís a leaderís job.
So, here it is...

Iím still experimenting. Iím not aiming for ketosis, I was forced to that style of eating as a child (seizure control, itís what high fat low carb was designed for) and I hated the diet.
I really want to relearn my hunger signals. And give my pancreas a break. Lol.

In April and May, I was basically OMAD, without aiming for it. I called it busy, but I paid attention to my extra energy. So Iím in what looks to average a 16:8 window. And I am working a lot of that time.
Iíve kicked snacks out of my life aside from hiking trips.
Working on soda, as thatís my hold out bad habit.
Many of my meals fit nutritarian.
I eat very very few animal products, lifelong.
In June, Iíve averaged two meals a day, although portion-wise that might be generous to call them both ďmeals.Ē Maybe I didnít really kick snacks out. I just renamed it dinner.

The Eat Stop Eat book is on its way to me.

Pretty much had one meal out and some samples at Costco today. I actually didn’t feel any hunger till nearly 9 o’clock and not very strong so a good overnight fast.

Had an apple and latte (my own recipe) for dinner. Did get hungry late at night. Don't like to eat after dinner time, but sleep is important so I had a few spoons of cottage cheese! I still met the limit for maintenance on an alternate day fast plan.

I have not been hungry for dinner in days, but have gone ahead and eaten it. Most days are still low enough that others would think I am purposely limiting calories.

It's after 5:30 pm and no hunger. I've decided to tough it out (just against those non-hunger desires to eat), skip dinner, and have a longer overnight fast than usual. I may amend my fasting window tomorrow, but I don't want to edge it earlier and earlier, so that I keep the option open of having dinner at regular dinner time sometimes.

I guess I'm the only one here? And I;m not even a very good faster!

This month, I am aiming at two meals a day with no solid food before 11 a.m. or after 7 p.m. I do allow myself coffee with milk/creamer by 9 am, so it is not a very long overnight fast, but it's what I think I can maintain. I am limiting snacking because I rarely do it out of real hunger. I had a slightly whacked day because I went to help a friend getting ready to move and she had bought pizza (and no "fillers" like salad-y items available; I didn't want to ask for anything because we were trying to keep things simple while we worked) AND because I forgot two small items I had added to my breakfast plan and got very antsy for food much earlier than I thought. I ended up getting a little more of a nosh on the way home. But it was so much better than the truly dysfunctional eating I had reverted to that I feel okay about it.

Also, though I don't usually track because I am experimenting with a different macro ratio than I'm used to in search of better satiety, I am at times planning meals with the tracker. It just worked out yesterday that calories were relatively low. That has happened before with no effect on morning hunger, but I got hungry very early today. I am willing to tolerate some hunger but it was a bit shocking how strong it was and how early it came!

I estimated the pizza and nosh and the ratio came out quite close to my original goal. It's all I'm willing to do as one of the reasons I fast is to avoid having to micromanage my meals. If I find the ratio satisfying, I will just keep using the tracker until I get the sense of the building blocks of my meals. That's what I did with 40/30/30 and I got very good at it with just occasional checking.
