I’m at BMI 22-23 and aiming at 20 just because I feel so much better at 120lbs than at 137. My husb and I eat organic vegies and fish primarily.
Good luck to everybody doing this - not easy but also so interesting !

I never feel hungry (perhaps because of very high level of fats and low to no suagr I'm consuming on the Keto diet?).
I also just let myself eat as much as a want during the 8 hour window, which for me is about 8-4pm. I eat an enormous breakfast and enormous lunch plus snacks if I feel like it (probably about 3 meals worth in two) and drink as a much water and herbal tea as I want (peppermint, green, ginger, jasmine etc.) plus one morning coffee.
The liquids I consume daily probably equate to around 5/6 litres. I know this sounds excessive but I'm also living in a hot climate.
I know that not everyone's schedule/work allows for an earlier eating window BUT I think not eating later in the day has been a contributing factor to why the diet is working so well for me. I feel like by the time I'm going to bed, my body is focusing on regenerative work, not digestion. I wake up with no bloating and feel actually hungry in the morning.
Also, when there's a birthday dinner etc. on, I also just let myself eat and drink a bit of alcohol and trust that the rest of the week/fortnight is enough to balance it out and so far it seems to be working and I'm still losing weight. Giving myself that permission makes this diet feel a lot more sustainable.
