    that means i dont eat all night till 2-3 PM and from 2-3pm untill 8-10 pm i can eat atleast twice.

    it depends what u want anyways.. u wanna loose fat? bellly fat? then it will help..
    its all about why u wanna do such a thing
    Anything that helps lose fat is always a bonus.

    But there are other benefits to IF too. I'd copy/paste but for some reason I can't post the info.

    my wrists are huge problem (seeing the GP for 'progress' in sha Allah it'll be ok, have to use stylus pens/and soon splinters for support) I have to give it time like you said because i'lll injure myself but I can't do push up as it HURTS SO BAD, this is a problem for people with chicken wrists (mine are small lol)

    yeh I will try to get back on it **I think

    no, in sha Allah I will when things settle (a lot of stuff going on and some days I just like sitting in a corner reminiscing like a mad woman)
    Okay, but don't stop exercising due to your wrist hurting. You can use weighted balls, they look like a normal football but are heavier. You can try low impact exercises with that.

    Start at 3kg and work up In Sha Allaah. This way you will be using your hands, more than your wrist.

    I'm not expert though, so ask your GP beforehand.

    What do you eat for the four hours, protein based food?

    Have you tried macha tea? Comes in chocolate and vanilla flavour
    Macha tea - haven't tried it, is it any good? What does it do?

    Yup, a lot of eggs and fish. Maybe some carbs like wholegrain bread.

    Do you want to gain muscle? What's your goal?

    Yes, I do lift weights, loads of sports and martial arts. Food is no problem but not drinking water is hard, gotta admit that lol ( there's a rule in IF, you gotta excercise before breaking your fast) . Also you gain weight lifting, but it's cuz muscles weight more than fat. I suggest you look at your shape and not the scale cuz it can be super missleading.

    Train your wrist before doing any heavy exercise, or you'll end up hurting yourself.
    do pushups with knees on the ground first and get used to them. Regular pushups comes after that. There's also special pushup bars you can purchase, puts less strain on your wrists.

    excercise is good, don't give up sis. just start slowly.
    thanks

    Do you sisters lift weights while fasting? And how much?

    I struggle with 10kg (lol I understand this is nothing for most people that lift weights) due to my wrists, hip and some slobbishness I have temporarily given up

    I cannot be bovvad no more

    Tea without sugar and milk is hard to swallow

    Tell me about it

    Have you tried evaporated milk?

    You can get light version, gives it a little bit creaminess without extra fat

    sadly 20:4 did not cure anything. I had to cut it and make it 12:12. My mid could handle it, but my stomach gave up so I ended up shortening it. Also, I need energy for studies, it's har without food for 20 hours

    Fasting Mondays and Thursdays is equivalent to the 5:2 diet. Whereby you fast two days and eat normally for the remainder of the five days. So you can do dry fasting which is the Islamic practice, and gain rewards and reap the health benefits too.

    Intermittent fasting is done every day - it becomes an eating habit.

    Tbh, when I had looked into it a while back before trying it, it seemed people's experiences with it were mostly positive or very positive.

    I know it does help in keeping leaner, but for me, other than the somewhat conflicted thoughts on the fasting mentioned already, the working out fasted was/is a big factor.

    It could likely be that I needed time adjusting mentally and physically to it, but after trying to lift heavy in that state, I didn't really see myself continuing.

    I know other do manage it, though, so like I say, it could be that (getting used to it).

    I think the general impression I got when looking into it was that for hypertrophy/mass building it would help stay lean while putting on size (and strength) but that it would be a slower process...

    So, the way I saw it, cardio on an empty stomach and continuing a regular diet/training program would be more suitable, especially since enjoying doing the weights is quite a big part of it for me... Going all out while fasted, it wasn't the most appealing way to train, even if there are a lot of benefits we'd get by doing that.

    Non-enhanced ( :p ) brothers who train on the intermediate-heavy side ...Would be great to get your thoughts on the training while fasted aspect of IF if You've been doing it for a while.
    It's not difficult at all - most people do IF without even realising it.

    Say for example your eating window is 12-6pm, and you work out in the evening at 7-8pm, you won't really feel the hunger pangs, as you can drink as much water as you want to, and sleep thereafter.

    Although tbh it is better to work out during your fasting period.

    Most people I know who are into losing fat and gaining muscle just eat a lot more protein in their eating window.

    As with anything - it's better to stick it out for at least 6 weeks before giving up.

    It has to be black tea/coffee without any sweeteners.

    I normally drink boiled water with apple cider vinegar and some cinnamon. Or just green tea (unsweetened).

    Anything else and your 'fast' is broken as it spikes your insulin levels.

    I think it becomes a lifestyle if you continue it non-stop, and there are a lot of health benefits of eating within a certain time window.

    Also - working out in the 'fasted' state has more of an impact on your training - you see better results in short period of time.

    the difference is that intermittent fasting is a lifestyle. You just eat food in a different time during the day and fast the rest. Water, black coffee and tea without sugar is alright to drink during the fast.
    So if you need 2500 KCAL a day, then you gotta eat that much before fasting. if you're fasting for 20hours then you need to eat 2500KCAL during the 4 hours you're allowed to consume food.
