Daimere-whatever it takes to motivate is great. Glad to see you here with us!! What type of IF do you do?
I have been doing a combination of 12-16 hour fasts and 5:2. So usually I will have a 9 hour eating window give or take. Sometimes I go longer because I am busy working and don't eat till later. It helps me not stress about food so much and I get more sleep sorta! I haven't incorporated the 5:2 yet this time around. At this moment, I am just tracking what I eat during my eating windows (I still track because I have a history of binging and emotional eating) and sticking to 8p-5a. As long as I am motivated, the IF is so easy. I used to stress on my 12 hour days about having enough healthy food, etc. Now I don't. Although I make sure I have something good to eat to break the fast. And this time around, easing my body into IF was easier. It took two weeks for my body to stop overproducing stomach acid
