I definitely don’t do that, it would be horrible. Fat adaptation had no effect, it’s not my thing at all, neither parts.
And IDK about others but being full is AWFUL (usually. I can imagine a nicer type but I don’t want that either). I definitely want to avoid that! I rather go hungry and I dislike that too.
I don’t write my personal complicated decision making but my end goal is long term perfect satiation. And try to eat accordingly. When to stop, that’s complicated.
When to start to eat is easier but not clear. I typically wait until my body seems to need food. I am rarely hungry and hunger is unreliable anyway but it is part of my decision making. If I am annoyingly hungry, I eat. But I usually just don’t get hungry so I need my “need to refuel” sign. It’s subtle but dizziness and weakness and loss of focus shows I reached it.
Well one surely can survive like that, the same as on high-carb but it’s not necessarily pleasant.
5 weeks rarely enough for most of us to be fat adapted (I did it after 7, it’s pretty normal). Fat adaptation tends to help with fasting, it seems, I have read it many times.
But we aren’t all the same. Some people can’t do IF (at least not a small eating window. 8 hour is very big if you ask me, I easily put 3-5 meals into it but I am abnormal, apparently) even after much keto and being fat adapted. While there’s me… My fasting abilities deteriorate as I eat less and less carbs. I could skip days easily on HCHF (they were even automatic), I can’t anymore. And I suspect that it’s mostly about my mealsize but it’s not the only reason. Oh well, I try to do OMAD but that’s trickier with less carbs too (it’s sure thing on high-carb if I want to do it).
It’s fine not to be like others. We all have our individual circumstances. As long as we find the style we are comfortable with and what works for us, we are good I think
I would wait for fat adaptation, maybe it helps. And maybe you need different food choices to skip breakfast without problem. Who knows?
My hunger changed a lot since fat adaptation, even since my early carni times! Now I get hungry (just a tiny bit, strong hunger is impossible for me without eating first) and I can wait hours without a problem, my hunger stays cute and innocent or goes away. It’s pretty recent, I never had this before, not even on carnivore and I actually had a changed hunger there (not always but often) but not like this.
This journey is full with surprises.
