hmm, in the IF groups, most people do lower carb, higher fat most of the time, but will have off plan foods occasionally, usually by plan. One difference I have found is that I have treats much less often. I had gotten to the point where I was treating myself to junk and high carb foods almost daily. When I was trying to lose weight, it was still at least once a week. Now its more like once a month.
Some doing IF just eat normally, but less often, (2 meals a day) and find that works.
I for one am still very carb addicted, but I do have some fruit and occasional oatmeal on my WOE with IF.
I guess the question is, how much do you want to keep the weight off when you lose it? will you be able to enjoy certain foods occasionally? of course, if you can do so and not get into a vicious cycle of carb craving craziness. That's me though, not you necessarily. But many find that once they get into the rhythm of low carb with higher fat, (don't replace the carbs with protein, you need more fat to satisfy you or its hard to stick to) your cravings for carbs go down. I don't have the same desire for baked goods and sweets that I used to have, unless I start eating them. (sometimes smells will trigger cravings though)
Wishing you good luck, in whatever plan makes sense to you.
