Intermittant Fasting question



Recommended Posts

I started back with IF about a month ago, once I felt I could consume enough nutrition in a limited time. I am doing 16/8 or there abouts. It is going just fine with plenty of energy and no hunger at all in the mornings, However, when it is time to eat, I am usually feeling pretty hungry. Even though my Portion Control is OK, I am getting a bit of tummy upset/foamies/slimies with the first meal of the day. I suspect I am eating too quickly. This doesn't happen with other meals. I know I need to slow down, but I wonder if the empty pouch just gets a shock when food enters for the first time each day. Anyone else experiencing this with IF? Do you break your fast with a regular meal, or do you ease into it with something soft like a smoothie?

I used to break it with a non IF approved drink before the meal but not a smoothie or Protein Shake.

However

There is a huge thread for IF with a lot of participants, search there for a wider range of answers.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
