Default IF and low carb combo

I had a lot of trouble sticking to low carb. Definitely I was not eating enough fat to stay satisfied, but I will also say that finding out that I had coeliac disease and getting off gluten has save my life. I now get so sick from baked goods, even though I miss them and am as tempted as ever, I simply can't eat stuff without getting horribly sick, so it doesn't happen anymore.
Along with that, I have embraced IF (intermittent fasting) I "normally" eat 2MAD (two meals a day) within an 8 hour window. I also occasionally fast for 24-36 hours.
If you are interested read "the Obesity code" or "the Diabetes code" for more info.
After years in minimal success with WW, Curves, Atkins etc. I have found the code. I am down 40 pounds. I am no longer pre-diabetic. I am overweight still but not obese. My health has improved so much.
I am able to stick to this WOE (way of eating) .
I do agree that success can come in a variety of ways but being able to stick to what you are doing is the key.
I thank EagleRiver for directing me this way.
No, not all my problems are solved, my life is not perfect, but it sure is better.

Hi fatmad! I loved reading your post and am so happy low carb and IF work for you. I’ve read Obesity Code and several low carb books. I’m a huge Dr Jason Fung fan and he is well known among low carb-ers.

Celiac is so serious and requires such a strict way of eating, you were well practiced at healthy eating. And it is a “practice”.

I wish you all the best in your continued journey.

HI FatMad!
I started following Dr. Fung's plan (also 16:8, 2 meals a day) on dec 12.
I'm 55 and a WW Lifetime member ("in Remission") and I've try low carb diets, but
nothing was worknig for me. I'm now down 10 pounds (I'd love to lose 5-15 more).
I loved the Obesity Code, but wish there were clearer guidelines regarding what to eat.
I was wondering if there are any other sources regarding the carbs that he allows.
I eat sweet potato, legumes and winter squash in moderation. I tried lentil pasta
and gained weight (too processed?).
Any advice for a relative newbie?
Thanks!
