  1. Great video and very informative, as always! Many people I know have seen great health benefits from IF but it didn't serve me that well since I have quite a sensitive stomach and, through trial and error, I have learnt that my body works best if I eat small frequent meals. I love that you pointed out that no diet is is one-size-fits-all and highlighted the importance of listening to our bodies.

  2. Love your videos! I've done a lot of research on intermittent fasting because I have about 100lbs to lose. I like the way you organized your information. I haven't gotten to a plateau yet because I am still early in my weight loss journey. I didn't think about switching things up to get the weight coming off again. Thanks for all the great information!

  3. Everyone always thought I was crazy growing up, but I've always been a "never eats until 12" person, even back in high school when I would wake up at 6:30. It's what has kept me a healthy weight my whole life. Now, with current IF studies, I am not longer seen as crazy by everyone.

  4. Watching this as inspiration with 3 more hours left of my fasting window for today. I'm not hungry. I just like to eat and my lunch for work looks really good. 😜

  5. Intermediete fasting is great way to lose weight + keto to maximize the effect. The challange i facing in my beloved country is every food cousine always have added sugar. Instead phobia to sugar which i cannot avoid, what i do intermediete fasting with one meal a day, strictly 100% no carb at all, rice, bread, potato and etc. Go for vege + protein just in that one time meal a day and work for me. Down 14kg for me. Not great but at least working. If you stay country like me Malaysia which also sugarholic like USA, at least to try to adapt it instead phobia on it.

  6. What do you think about the gallstone problem? My mother always warns me to not skip meals because she used to do that, and she had to get gallstone surgery.

  7. This is right on point. Been doing this for a year. Have lost weight, am no longer hungry all of the time. I eat clean unprocessed foods, low carb (20 max), no sugar. It took months for my body to adjust to IMF. The longer I do this, the easier it gets. My fasting window is expanding on its own without suffering hunger or energy loss. I eat twice a day. And happy with the results.

  8. Eating 500 calories a day sounds like anoraxia. I am no specialist but i suggest people double check other recourses before trying that

  9. I fall in that last category. I'm on a good plan now that I can finally stick to. Fasting has always been a breeze for me since childhood, but as I got into being a working adult I got into just eating dinner for many years and things went so bad with my health,leading to surgery and many medical issues. I had good reasons for just eating one meal,drinking and eating foods/juice highly acidic as well as years of diet soda,coffee and addiction to chocolate. Sleeping only 3 hrs per night. When I did burn out from this combination,I end up in the ER.
    Thank God I didn't die from not listening to my body. I had to be taught how to eat,how often,and when. I could still go for hours without even a drop of water,but now I would feel sick. If I fast it's not for a long period,and not often. Everything in moderation. I'm on a good healthy road.

  10. Prophet Mohammed peace be upon him used to fast two days a week (Monday and Thursday) . Also one month a year. It purify your soul as well as your body .

  11. Endlessly creative and delicious recipes and easy meal prep. I love meal prep, makes cooking easy. I no longer dread cooking because its complicated and so time consuming.
    Thanks Alyssa

  12. Thank you for putting your time and energy into the videos you produce to share your knowledge. You're good at what you do!  We would like to try some of your recipe ideas and are wondering where we can find the ingredient measurements? Thanks a bunch.

  13. This was a great informative video! When is a good time to work out while on intermittent fasting? I just wonder if someone could be more at a risk of exhaustion while getting in their daily workout during the hours/ days they are fasting vs hours/ days they are eating. Is choosing to work out at one time over the other generally more productive and beneficial for fat burning? (Or safer and easier on the body?) Truthfully, I'm unsure of good times to work out in general lol. Also, what pre-workout and post-workout beverages/meals are good to have around workouts? For example what best can fuel you before specific workouts (ie. Cardio vs. Fat burn) or what is good to eat to replace and recover what is lost. I think one thing I get really confused about is whether or not it's good to have a protein shake before your workout or after? Or does it matter ? Or can it actually be more beneficial to not eat before or after you workout at all such as if you do so first thing in the morning or at the end of the night? I've heard some people say that they like to work out first thing in the morning without anything on their stomach and other say it's good to have a couple of calories in there I guess to jumpstart a little energy. Now I'm wondering if the latter is a myth or unnecessary since eating breakfast in the morning doesn't necessarily kickstart your metabolism. I know there's not one answer and everyone is different when it comes to the limits they can push when working out or requiring different nutritional needs due to certain conditions, but more information on this would be interesting! Sorry for the length!
