When I started fasting it was before my previous prep (July 6th, 2019) and knew I wanted to continue it as part of my daily behaviors. It helped keep me on track and not eat outside my feeding window. Knowing the drawbacks of breaking my fast too soon kept me honest and I was able to experience the benefits.
Using IF for my competition bikini prep proved to bring positive results and I have continued to keep IF as part of my daily eating schedule. There are other time windows to try with IF and I recommend it to anyone trying to become healthier with more than just exercise and recovery.
Other fasting/feeding time frames
20 (fasting) :4 (feeding), 18:6, 16:8, 14:10, 12:12
If you eat breakfast regularly every day then starting with a 12:12 time frame is a good place to start and each week increase your fast by 1-2 hours.
