several common styles of IF

Post by jpatti »

There's quite a wide variety in how people implement intermittent fasting.

Some just skip breakfast or dinner, eating two meals within 8 hours, thus extending their ordinary overnight fast to 16 hours (16:8).

During much of the time while reversing my diabetes, I ate OMAD (one meal a day), doing 23:1.

You can also alternate between breakfast and dinner, getting in several 36-hour fasts each week while still eating daily.

In general, the fewer times you eat in the smallest window will produce the most rapid healing.

But it's not a contest! Most importantly, choose a way of eating that is sustainable for the long-term as reversing diabetes is not something that happens in a few days or weeks and it may take some time for you to get your diabetes in remission.
My diabetes is in remission; yours can be too! :D
