I lost a lot of weight previously using LCHF in the past but fell off the wagon and gained it all back. The pandemic didn't help matters. It's an ongoing battle for me and I've made some progress lately. I've been restricting my eating window to 8 hours after reading Jason Fung's books on the Obesity Code and Intermittent Fasting. I stop eating by 8 pm and then fast 16 hours. I am also watching my carbs but as a vegetarian, it's challenging and that's why I'm trying the IF approach. I've lost 20 lbs with the restricted eating window after 55 days. I'm going to continue with this experiment as it seems to be working. I started by setting up two Google calendar events with alerts that repeat everyday and send notifications to me. 1. 12 pm. "Congratulations, you have completed your fast. Your eight hour window is now open." 2. 8 pm "Your eating window is now closed. Wind down and let your body rest."
