I have been doing 16:8 for past week and love it.I do not miss breakfast and over the past few days have been sticking to around 1300/1400 cals and finding Im not that hungry as much between meals anymore.

Tomorrow was meant to be a fast day however due to change of plans I am now having chinese (mmmmm) so I will make it a 16:8 day instead and have fast another day. Here is where I need advice:

My 16 hour window started at 7pm tonight and would normally go till 11am, however to maximise fast can I extend that fast window for as long as possible...say till dinner time around 5 ish tomorrow (maybe earlier) and still eat my meal within those hours left till 7pm??

Thinking that way Id still get benefit of some fasting (20 hours max) and as I would only have a limited time to eat my meal Im un likely to stuff my face (hopefully) and should therefore minimise calorie intake and keep it to an ok level reducing much damage.

Does that sound ok?? Guess its a mini fast day lol
