Could be, but in any case it makes no sense to eat a meal every 3 hours, no matter how small. Anyway I can't afford that much time, floss and toothpaste

Its a chicken or egg situation. When you fast the nagging hunger disappears


I know its been a while but, for me, I need some time to pass before I have new comments. Shoot, I just ate my first meal of the day today at 2:00 and dinner will be ready at 6:00 and I definitely do not think that I am going to be hungry. My first meal consisted of a 6 oz piece of steak, 10 small shrimp, turnip greens with turnip roots mixed in. I also had an 8 oz glass of coconut/fruit smoothie. Yet, I am not stuffed but I am definitely full. I noticed that I lost another 2 lbs last month I workout at Curves and I have been walking. I exercise during my fast and do not eat until an hour after my workout.

I've IFed out of necessity for most of my working life. I cannot eat while working as I work in an isolation chamber and it would take too long to decontaminate and get to food - so I have 8 - 12 hour fasts every working day as it is. The times I miss breakfast I fast for 23 hours straight. This happens more often than I'd like.

But I have never, ever stopped being hungry during the day. It's been years of this schedule and my body has never liked it and probably never will. When I eat at 7am and then again at 7pm I'm okay, but still not great. My body simply prefers more, smaller meals throughout the day. I wish it were different because it's darn inconvenient, but this is the way it works with me.

I'm really glad to know that it may be prolonging my life though!!

That's a good plan; I often start eating as soon as I am done exercising, but I workout at home.

I think the hunger issues are directly proportional to the amount of carbs consumed. Exercise also seems to be a factor, at least for me. If I bike in the evening I am starving the next morning. I am working on increasing protein by having some sardines with my meals or Jay Robb's protein powder if I get less than 80 grams / day.

I am back with another update. Well, I have not lost any more weight but I am keeping my weight down. I was reading a blob by Dr. mike about IF being an anti-inflammatory diet. It makes sense to me now that my fibroid cysts have become less noticeable...they are not inflicting pain nor am I cramping like I used to. TOM is shorter as I have said. It is just something that I must repeat. Something else I noticed, are my joints continue to be less painful even to the point where they do not ache at all. They have felt much better since beginning low carbing but this is the first time where there is absolutely no pain.

I continue to do the same exercise routine where I exercise while IF and eat no sooner than an hour after the workout. I also make sure that I keep c oconut oil in my dietary regimen. I am looking pretty good in my clothes, too.
