A large metastudy has demonstrated that all mainstream diets work more or less as well (or as poorly) as each other.

And "keeping a food diary" also works about as well as any of them. In other words, the common factor in all successful diets is as simple as paying attention to how much you are eating.

Basically, the way to lose weight and keep it off boils down to: Pick a diet you can actually stick to, with foods that you like and will satisfy you. And be honest with yourself about what you eat.

Name doesn't check out :)

I took on IFD by not having breakfast (so 16/8). I have lost about 40lbs since November. Granted the last 5 have been very slow since we seem to have made having a glass of wine daily as part of our regimen since going under quarantine. But I have kept it off, I usually float between 190 and 193 when I was 235 last year.

Haven't changed anything else but the reduction of about 2-300 calories a day seems to work for me and I was expecting when I stopped eating breakfast that I would be famished by lunch but doesn't seem to be any different.

My breakfasts are large and in charge. Generally eggs with sliced potatoes or leftover rice and some fruit. Bacon on weekends. I don't each lunch. I have a normal but lower carb supper and a high fiber snack before bed.

It's like I'm observing Ramadan but without the praying.

So if I eat less AND skip meals I might lose weight?

This is truly revolutionary information

I did that for a while and was still confused why I have a bit of a gut. Then I realized I was not tracking alcohol intake. I started tracking that and quickly stopped when it got too depressing.

I may grab a snack around lunchtime if I'm really hungry but I've otherwise always pretty much eaten one meal a day for as long as I can remember. Intermittent fasting is basically just not eating between meals. I guess I've been Intermittent fasting pretty much my whole life.

Nice to see these kind of long-term studies...three farking days??!!  It took me a month before I could go that long without eating and not get shaky.

I used IF, cut out booze, cut WAY back on sugar, started walking 3-4 times what I had been.  Since last July, I've dropped 50#.  I'm not about to do multivariate analysis to see which had the most impact.
