Default Accidental IF trial

I accidentally tried IF (or something like it) today. Seeing that I did not die, lol, I'm considering giving it a trial. Could some of you with IF experience give me an idea what length of a trial you'd recommend before making a decision about it? Also, could you point me to a basic breakdown of 'rules'? Thanks.

I would post this in the IF forum. You will be more likely to get an answer.

I've been doing a 16/8 plan with some occasional 24 fasts... So I eat during an 8 hour window... for me usually from 12pm to 8pm and then I don't eat after 8pm until after 12pm the following day... Sometimes I adjust my eating "window" because of my schedule to 2pm to 10pm... But for me IF is more of a strategy to keep my calorie levels in check and hopefully, helping in a favorable change in body composition and not really about losing weight...

But definitely check out the Eat,Stop,Eat, Fast 5, Leangains , And OTHER IF forum here... it's pretty active...

Ok, maybe I'm blind, but I don't see an IF forum

I don't see one either, but there is a main support group for all the different variations of IF.

Eat Stop Eat, Fast 5, Leangains and OTHER IF
