Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!

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..

Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!

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

Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!

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.

Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!

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

Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!

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!

Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!

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.
