Hi everyone. I've been fasting on Monday and Thursday, but I'm going to try Friday this week instead. I'm just finding that I can go too far off the rails at the weekend, and 3 days of this can add up! I have much better control in the week when I'm at work.

Thank you CandiceMarie! My name is a childhood nickname, from having frizzy hair (thank goodness for hair straighteners these days!)

I'm doing 4:3, I fast on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. I's because I train on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and I cannot do that in fasted state (heavy weightlifting sessions). On these days I try to eat to my TDEE. Sunday is my free day.

hello and welcome @SonnyJim sounds sensible to fast away from temptation. Perhaps you could drop a wee note into the Introduce Yourself thread and tell us a bit about yourself, and get the full force of our friendly welcome. Your post may get a bit lost amongst this thread.

I fast during Sunday because I am alone at home. I just rest and watch tv.

I normally stick to Monday and Thursday, but if there are special occasion that force me to juggle things around, I don't have a problem doing so.

I am fasting today and wanting the time to pass so that I can eat my supper! Therefore I checked through all the 14 pages of this topic to look for my answer. I did not find it!!! :bugeyes:
that is weird because I remember what I wrote!!!
I maintenance fast on Thursdays. If I do twice a week it'll be Tuesday and Thursday. I know MM in the book recommended Mondays and Thursdays, but I cannot do Mondays. Because we have a social event on Mondays, which includes food. It would be too awkward to say 'no' every Monday.
I have been doing this for years now, and sometimes I do Alternate Days Fasting, or 4:3 or an eating window. But when doing the honest 5:2 it is Tuesday and Thursday for me.

I fast everyday of the week.

I keep it up for 20hours a day and allow myself a "cheat" day on Saturday. I still won't eat anything in the morning, but will allow myself a longer period of "food consumption" on this day.

So far I have been overwhelmed with the results and I am full of energy without any hassles.

Congratulations, @DidiToit, and welcome. How long have you been using 20:4 windows and how is your weight loss going? I used 5:2 for losing my weight initially - four years ago! Now I use a few days of fasting if I creep over my target weight and rarely have breakfast on any day. It keeps me more or less on my target of 147 pounds. Love this WOE (Way Of Eating)!

I usually fast Tuesday and Friday, that's my busy day.

Hello, @Madmily. I have fasted on Tuesday and Friday this week, although Monday and Thursday are my more usual days. That's just one of the things I like about IF. You can do it whenever it suits you best! :smile:
