Welcome Newbies: (Intermittent) Fasting (aka Not Snacking All Day) FAQ

Welcome to our friendly, active, rapidly-growing forum.

There is now quite a bit of information available on the internet - and I try to "guide you through the maze."

If you are not on an intra-venus drip - and been fed 24/7, you are Not Eating All Day aka Intermittent Fasting - it does not have to be extreme!

Please start a separate post to introduce yourself, or ask specific questions.

This one short video by Dr Jason Fung gives you many of the answers:

How to Fast, by Dr Sten Ekberg:

How not to fast (mistakes to avoid):

To lose weight we have to eat less and/or move more, but the basic "calories consumed minus calories burnt" does not (always) work... and eating fewer meals – or eating in a window of fewer hours a day (or fewer days a week) is what we call Intermittent Fasting (IF).

Intermittent Fasting works best in combination with a Low-Carbohydrate diet, see:

How to Start Fasting

With enough incentive or motivation (e.g. diabetes or cancer) you can go straight into Fasting (Dr Jason Fung puts some of his diabetic patients on an initial medically-supervised 14-day fast) but most of us transition into Intermittent Fasting over a few weeks... as our bodies get into "fat-burning mode". See "How to Start Fasting":

I'll delete this after, but would you be able to add the question: 'What if my nearest and dearest don't like the idea of me fasting?'

Hi, just a request for a tiny tweak from me. I now understand your 'not eating all day' to mean, 'don't mindlessly snack all the day long'. At first I put the emphasis in the incorrect place and read it as 'don't eat all day' which more put me in mind of 24 hr fasts and longer, rather than 16:8 protocols etc. Would it be worth rewording for anyone making the same error as me?
