Okay… so i have naturally fallen into a fastinf pattern that looks like this…
Th - 20:4
Sat- 16:8 Eat up to calorie limit
Sun - no fast; keep carbs under 25 eat as many calories.
So on my 20/4 days i am eating around 800-1000 calories
On my 24 hour days im getting 500-600 calorie days.
On my 16/8 saturday im getting around 1600
On Sunday im eating around 2200
So ive noticed that my body loves the 20 hours deal. My issue on 24 hour days is that i have to end my fast after my swim and my swim ends at 9 which means eating at 930 by the time i get home. So i only really have an hour before i need to stop because my body needs to digest before bed. And on my 20 hour days its higher but not beyond 1000 calories. I just dont have an appetite ect.
So… my question is… 20/4 and 24/1 okay to do 5 days a week permitting that sat and sun are high calorie days? And what i mean by ok is that it wont cause BMR slowdown ? I do have 75 lbs of extra weight on my body at least to access for energy.
Just want to make sure im not going to kill my metabolism by eating so few during the week but boosting it on weekends?
