We breakfast eaters only support IF if you select your feeding time to be during breakfast time!

How long have you been doing IF for? And what's the program you follow, 8/16? I'm about to start that and just wanted to see how it's working for you..

I've been doing IF for like 3 days (16/8), so far I really like it. I don't have to worry about preparing breakfast while half-awake (not a morning person) and can focus on work and then get to stuff myself silly in the 8 hours post-workout :D

My breakfast everyday with only slight variations.

4-5 Eggs
1 Sweet Potato (half depending on size)
1/4 - 1/2 Bell Pepper
chopped red onions
hand full of baby spinach
either 8oz Smoked Sausage or Steak.

Chopped and scrambled together. I need to run it through a calculator to see what the counts are on it.

Doing IF too, although, once a week...usually Saturdays I eat breakfast, it involves pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast or toast with some jelly...and chocolate milk, and maybe a piece of fruit if I'm not feeling too full :)

Ian, the fish oil doesn't bother you with no food? I am IFing too and my fast breaking meal includes a lot of eggs. I would miss brekkie too much to forego it altogether!

Can someone explain the basics of IF? What do the 8 and 16 mean?

I dont know anything about IF, but given the conversation, it sounds like 8 hours of eating and 16 hours of fasting each day

Correct, it's the approach advocated by leangains.com, and they seem to be doing well.
