I skip breakfast each day and eat two meals, the first around 1pm and the second around 8pm. Then, I fast for 16 hours until I start eating again the next day at 1pm.

Intermittent fasting is a pattern of eating, it's not a diet. Schedule your meals so you get the most out of them. It changes when you eat and not what you eat.

People misunderstand intermittent fasting and think it's a diet. It's not. It has a lot of benefits and actually builds muscle mass and decreases body fat. You may not be eating breakfast but your body has energy to do what you need to do.

Missing breakfast for me is a no no. I need to keep my energy up and I don't think this will work for me. I do know of it's benefits but I don't want to take the risk of skipping meals.

Fasting does have benefits. It uses up you stored fat and keeps you lean. It doesn't mean you will starve yourself but there are certain times that you eat. It's a matter of getting used to the timing of meals.

I don't believe in diets and fasting. I like to eat. I workout so I can eat what I want.

Intermittent fasting is one of the simplest strategies we have for taking bad weight off while keeping good weight on because it requires very little behavior change.

You just need to follow the time when you can eat. It will not kill you to wait for the proper time. It would make you leaner. I've been doing this for 6 months now and I feel great.

I've never tried it but I had people who swear by it. They've felt that it was better than going on a diet because you can still eat what you want to eat unlike diets.

I'm big on behavior change, simplicity, and reducing stress. Intermittent fasting provides additional simplicity to my life that I really enjoy. When I wake up, I don't worry about breakfast. I just grab a glass of water and start my day.

The good news is that intermittent fasting activates many of the same mechanisms for extending life as calorie restriction. In other words, you get the benefits of a longer life without the hassle of starving.

I haven't tried any diets and fastings. I just try to eat as healthy as I can so I live long. These may be diet fads.

Intermittent fasting shines because it's remarkably easy to implement once you get over the idea that you need to eat all the time. Yo can easily adapt to it.

Daily intermittent fasting is done every day it becomes very easy to get into the habit of eating on this schedule. You're probably eating around the same time every day without thinking about it.

You can do intermittent fasting daily or weekly. There are schedules that you can check on the internet in case you're curious to try it out. I do the weekly fasting but I just started a few months ago.

I can stick to an eating routine if that's what it's about. It would be easy to adapt to the time that I need to eat. It eventually becomes a way of life when your body gets used to it.

This doesn't mean you need to stave yourself. It's having intervals after every meal so you burn off the calories you eat. You won't have all that stored fat.

Fasting has been practiced by various religious groups for centuries. Medical practitioners have also noted the health benefits of fasting for thousands of years so I think this is safe.

Fasting isn't a very marketable topic and so you're not exposed to advertising and marketing on it very often. The result is that it seems somewhat extreme or strange, even though its really not.

it’s a great way to get lean without going on a crazy diet or cutting your calories down to nothing. In fact, most of the time you'll try to keep your calories the same when you start intermittent fasting.
