@Muftanza, 16:8 just means eating only in an 8 hour window and fasting for 16 hours. More info here #sixteeneight.

I don't worry about an extra 50 cals and I don't do zumba, lol ;)

I'm fasting today and jealous of everybody that is finishing up for the day, it's not even noon here. :bugeyes:

Caroline, I think the tag you put in the original post was the numeric 16:8 instead of the text sixteeneight, I edited it and I think it works now...
