IF has some hype and I thought about giving it a try. I can see how keeping your diet on a strict schedule can help. I don't know a whole ton about the topic, but I have a few pieces of conventional wisdom that this diet goes against. So I am looking at how to avoid some of the negative of it.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
IF makes me skip breakfast. On a normal schedule I work from 9-5 workout after get home and eat by 8PM. I believe that eating after working out is really important so I cant skip this meal. Not eating for 16 hours would put my first meal of the day well past noon. That means no breakfast.
The thing is I am not doing this to lose weight. Skipping breakfast is just an easy way to cut down on how much you eat during the day. Breakfast kickstarts your metabolism, so I think that eating at least a little something would be better than nothing.
