Keto since 2016, coffee carnivore since 2019. Menopausal woman. Lightly active and take several short hikes a week. Don’t drink, don’t smoke, take no drugs of any kind. Have no health issues other than deranged metabolism. Weight barely budged in all this time.
Tried increasing and decreasing aerobic and anaerobic activity, calories, meat, fish, dairy, coffee, vitamins, minerals, stretching, meditation, fat, carbs, protein, ritual sacrifices over a copper bowl, you name it. Depression and horrific cravings returned every night like clockwork. Felt like a failure but knew at a gut level it wasn’t something a doctor could solve and sure enough…
Shifted my eating window to 9 AM - 3 PM and BAM! Pants are already looser after only 5 days.
