I was similar to @Rebj, but when I started 8 years ago, I thought it was healthy to eat many meals per day. So, I’d have a pre-workout drink, eat immediately afterward, always have breakfast, etc.
It wasn’t until I found Dr. Fung, about 1.5 years into low carb/keto, when I started attempting to skip meals. Then I started >24 hour fasts, longest 5.5 days. Many 3.5-4.5 day fasts. Many 36 hour fasts, 2x/week.
Now, I rarely eat “breakfast”, though lately I’ve been exercising 1 hour 20 minutes on Saturday (body weight raining to failure and HIIT). I’ll eat sometime relatively quickly after that. And I’ve even eaten 3 meals the last two Saturdays.
But this morning, I only did 45 minutes (aerobics, no body weight training to failure, only back/abs). That was 3 hours ago, and I’ll be eating my first meal soon.
The one thing I’d like to change is when I eat dinner, but I can’t. Tonight, I won’t get home until 7:30, so I’ll eat then. Tomorrow, I’ll eat just before 7pm. Wednesday, I hope to fast 36h hours, so no meal.
I often am eating right before bed. Would love to move that back, but cannot. That’s when my kids get home.
Even with eating right before bed, I’ve lost a lot of the weight I gained while trying The Croissant Diet. Not back into many of my 34 waist pants, yet, but back into most/all of my 36 waist pants.
