Need help

Right I've started 16/8 diet. hours of eating seem to be 12-8. Now that's what the app set. I run 3 times a week which is usually early in morning. I also go to gym for strength twice a week after work. Usually 8pm. Is my 12 till 8 OK or do I need to tweek it? I can't tweek when I run or go to gym as I'm working around alot of things and these suit. I hope I make sense

You posted about this a week ago and several people replied. Was any of that helpful?

I did but that was to see if the diet was any good. I decided to try it, but was thinking about my eating times and fasting times. Is my eating times OK to get the benifets for my running and gym training

Good to hear those replies were helpful.

I'm afraid I'm not big on exercise so can't answer your specific enquiry. Good luck


Hi, I actually find my fasted state running times are better than if I eat.

Strength training at the end of the eating window should be fine as you'll have just refuelled.

Goid luck!

It sounds sensible so why not try it and see how it goes?

I fast 10:00 to 14:00... but whatever works for you.
