Introduce Yourself!

Our Frequently Asked Questions topic will answer many of your fasting & weight loss questions!

If you're new and have a question or need some advice, please give us as much information as you can about your situation in order for us to be able to help you as best we can. For example, it's helpful to know your BMI/weight, how much you want to lose, any medical conditions which might affect your weight and (if you've started fasting already) how you do your fasts in terms of splitting up your calories, what you eat etc. Thanks!

Welcome, @Beark. Tell us a bit about yourself. How much are you hoping to lose? In general, intermittent fasting doesn't necessarily promise fast results (~1lb/week on average, if I remember correctly), but people seem to be able to stick with it for longer than other diets.

Good luck! :clover: :clover:

Hi @Beark

How are you going? Difficult time to start fasting over the festive season. :party:
I hope all is going well with your fast days....let us know how you are feeling.

As MaryAnn said, this is a slow and steady way of life. But I do feel better and less sluggish when I fast a couple of days a week.

Yes, December is a very difficult month for many people. I don't even think about it in December. But my rule is I come back in January ready to behave :-)

Yes, December can be very mean! Don't let it discourage you, I think most of us have a couple of holiday pounds to take care of. Let's do this!!
