Right, that's why I always state I'm pre-op and I'm not sure how what I follow will translate to post-op people because a post-op person's physiology is completely changed.

But you responded with that advice to @SteveT74, who is post op ....

If I could go back and edit my comment to clarify, I would. I was explaining what I currently follow (pre-op) and how I handle calories. I did mention at the end that I don't know how pre-op keto translates to post-op since most people follow low-fat post-op. But I understand...I'll be more careful.

I tried IF one day several months ago and actually felt empowered that day. However I've been too scared to try it since. I'm ready to give it a try again but have a few questions. When I'm fasting, can I have coffee and Water and flavored waters? I assume Protein Shakes are out but sort of seem to recall that the coffee and waters are ok. Thoughts? Why am I so scared? lol.

Thanks. That makes me very happy. Why am I so scared to do this though?

No idea why you think that but there seem to be quite a few people who think that not-eating for e. g. 16 h or so is kind of scary or weird or whatever.

Why do you want to do IF, btw?

I've had regain and can't seem to get it off. I want to try IF to get the regain off again but hope it also makes me more mindful of what I am doing.

Why do others do IF?

There is a whole thread on IF on this board. GreenTealael postet quite a few videos about several benefits of IF despite calorie control. That said, not everyone loses weight on IF because of over-compensating later in the day.

Here's a great thread from my keto community about IF and ketosis https://www.ketovangelist.com/fasting-destroys-your-cells-and-thats-a-good-thing/ Also, Dr. Jason Fung, MD is the be all, end all when it comes to IF. Tons of videos and books https://www.dietdoctor.com/authors/dr-jason-fung-m-d :1311_thumbsup_tone2:
