I can only tell you what I personally do, and this is from reading loads of information on it, at least the first 6 months after switching over. - I put at least two feasting days between my Fast, with both days being TMAD, so basically I eat a minimum of 4 meals before starting another Fast. This doesn’t matter if I did a 2 day, 3 day or 5 day, or what I plan to do next? I just use this as a minimum once I break a Fast. … But this too I mix up, sometimes going back to OMAD after those two feasting days for a week or so, and then going back to throwing 1 to 2 Fast in a week. - At one time, I actually started wanting to Fast Monday thru Friday and just eat on Weekends, but this would be way too scheduled, so I decided against it. … And I do indeed love eating a nice meal, which I start missing mostly over anything else.
Fasting slowed down a bit following the Emergency Surgery I had to have back in January, since I had 3 Hernia’s repaired in my abdominal area, (all around the belly-button area) but I’m now getting back to Fasting much more again, plus I do plan to start working out too. Just will do so easing back into it, as to not do anything stupid, causing me any more issues. … But I believe there are other folks here that indeed agree with me on the 2 day/4 meal thing. - Actually, if she doesn’t mind stopping in, I think @Brenda could provide you with more information as to why making sure to feast for 2 days is so important and why they use this method as well. It’s what I’ve been doing since I started Fasting.
