My experience with fasting:
(keep in mind this is my experience. I am not saying do it or don't and that your experience will be the same as mine.)
▪️I did it for a little more than a month. Other than a few days when I was sick.
▪️I fasted for 16 hours. The time varied depending on what time I had to have supper.
▪️when I first started, I found I lost some weight, and started to drop a bit of body fat
▪️I found my energy levels dropping, but that leveled off after about 2 weeks
▪️I do think not eating before my workout affected my strength a bit
▪️I found after a week or so, I wasn't all the hungry before the 16 hour window was up, and sometimes could/would go longer
▪️after 3 1/2 weeks I noticed that one I started eating it's like I couldn't get enough. I would come home and snack before supper because I couldn't/wouldn't wait ▪️I also found that it was getting difficult to control my cravings for chocolate, chips, various junk food. By this last week it was really bad. I justified it in my head(often without thinking about it) that it was within my eating window so it was ok.
▪️I don't think I made enough effort to prepare. If I didn't have leftovers for lunch, I would just eat some fruit and a protein shake or bar, being at the gym, and because I still can't drive, stuck there if I didn't have a long enough break. ▪️I was definitely eating in a calorie deficit at the beginning, and definitely not at the end
So taking everything into consideration, fasting like that just doesn't work for me. It may for you. It does for a lot of people You can't know unless you try. I may revisit a type of fasting in the future, possibly a solid fast on a rest day or something, but we will see
