Default IF “Menus”?

Hi! I started IF in October, 2019. I had great success for a few months, but then, well....COVID. Now, I’m back on the horse, hoping to shed the “COVID 15” in addition to what I originally wanted to shed 😫. I do the 16:8; I’m a teacher, and our lunch is at noon. I’ve never been a breakfast person (although I love a good Sunday brunch!), so just coffee and water in the a.m. works for me. I’m looking for meal suggestions for that 8 hour window, that are filling and healthy. I’m not a “keto/paleo/etc.”, I’m just looking for “normal” meals. I’m a single parent, on a strict budget, so cost-conscious meals are important. Thank you for any suggestions!

Also, is this the best thread for IF support? I’d love a place where I can be held accountable!

Hi Redsoxnation. Welcome back to 3 Fat Chicks! I do IF but I hate to say I'm not good at sticking with it. I don't follow any particular meal plan. I eat things I like trying to eat healthy. I have to limit carbs,because I have diabetes, type 2. I post in the Diabetes thread with a few other women. 3 of us do IF. You are welcome to join us even if you don't have diabetes. We welcome one and all. It always helps to have more posters, comparing ideas. You can read through the posts and see what you think about joining in. Maybe we will see you there.

Thank you. I was wondering why their was no fasting on here. I do 16;8 too. I can only stay on a diet for about 2 weeks then I always go off. Even though I love this plan. Lost 15 pounds in 2 weeks and did not gain it back. I have been on this site for many years. Under the screen name classykaren. I remember you

I was wondering the same way

I returned and wondered the same. Maybe we can re-start the board with a new thread.

Greetings all. 1st time poster. Hope I'm doing this right. I've been intermittent fasting 6:18 for about 3 weeks now with absolutely no change in weight. After all I've read I'm a bit surprised. I work nights and eat between 8am and 2 pm. Just a regular bfast and lunch, then nothing until following day. I have also added a 5 day/week workout session, daily walks, and my Dr prescribed a weight loss Rx. I can't fathom why nothing is budging in the last couple of weeks. Is this the menopausal effect I hear so much about? I'm feeling extremely discouraged 😞 any pointers welcome! And props to all you folks who are having success with the fasting. I'm jealous, lol! It seemed to work for me years ago...

Hi all, I'm Irishcurls and I'm new here. Having a wander through the site before I do a formal introduction. I do IF and am following a keto approach but am not nuerotic about it. On a weekday I eat at 1pm and 6pm. On weekends I may just have one meal, it could be 12pm, it could be 4pm...it depends on what I'm doing that day. I have no problem at at skipping breakfast or being hungry, in fact it gives me more clarity and more energy. Will have a wander and "find my place" here. Do we have a specific keto or IF forum? Thanks

Anyone out there?
Hi!
I am restarting intermittent fasting. I haven't been to this forum for about 5 years I think! I was cleaning up old bookmarks and it was kind of amazing and disheartening at the same time, the number of bookmarks that are no good at this point in my DIET folder.

but my son used intermittent fasting and lost 20 lb. I am mostly doing low carb although I was checking out
a diet I had saved called the seven day rescue plan. I might try that. It seems to be low carb but also low fat which might be a good idea. Do we have other intermittent fasting people on this board?
