    A Best kept secret to Losing weight

    Thanks for the interesting Instructible!Regarding the comment about consulting a qualified medical professional in person before starting any radical diet... My feeling on this is that we are in charge of our bodies, we now have the internet with mountains of information to sift through, but along with common sense, we can make intelligent choices, which are just as often as good as the qualified medical physicians.We can be pretty certain without a physician telling us that. If we have half a brain we can decide to eat a healthy diet. We get fat because we eat more calories than we process through our daily exercise. This is an increasing challenge with the sedentary life styles, desk jobs, screen times, etc.. The smartest things is obviously exercise more in a smart way. Eat less in a smart way. When you get injured or older our metabolism slows down, and more and more of the emphasis has to be on not overeating.I was struggling with how to reduce calories on a consistent basis. I discovered the same thing, intermittent fasting was the only thing that was working for me. I do use a different fasting window than you. I see no point in eating late, before going to bed. I always eat my breakfast, but choose to stop eating at a certain point in the day. I need the calories to function during the day, so I have a decent breakfast, and a healthy lunch. I might have a snack at 3, then I'm done for the day. I do this 4-5 times a week, and my body starts losing weight slowly. I've done this for several months and gotten down to my target weight. As in any weight program, once the weight is off, its better to maintain that weight than to fluctuate a lot. But we're both using similar windows of time for fasting and feeding.
