My stricter carnivore style (stricter for me, no dairy!) works well now, I automatically do IF with 1-3 meals now. That’s it, I still can’t fast longer but I am quite happy I stopped that nasty late night eating, it was weird but stubborn, returning. I am an afternoon eater, sometimes early evening but that’s it.
I am not particularly interested in food on this woe (eating food, at least, I still like to think about it, cook and stuff :D) so it’s up to my need if I can fast eventually. I very often walk just before lunchtime and that always triggers hunger or need to refuel (hunger is the hungry feeling in my belly and stomach, the other is very subtle weakness, dizziness and totally not subtle loss of concentration. so I just can’t function well anymore)… I can’t just ignore that when it feels serious (I know I would survive but my body is very demanding and gets pissed when I have food and don’t give it to it).
BUT I definitely won’t break my fast just because it’s time or I fancy something, it probably will help. I just want some tiny occasional EF… Wish for. A real WANT would surely trigger one. Determination is powerful.
I hope in a nice, IF-every-day September with some OMAD days. It’s realistic enough unless I mess it up on weekends when I tend to have lunch earlier (being home alone is so extremely helpful, I almost never do that then).
