I started intermittent fasting about 3 years ago.
First I was on the 5:2 diet for a years and a half when I switched to 16:8 (about a year and a half ago), because it seemed easier to maintain – which it was. I lost weight just like I did on 5:2 and was quite happy with being able to eat what I wanted (sort of) every day, and not having to count calories.
I’ve now reached a plateau and can’t seem to lose those final pounds. I’ve been considering combining 16:8 with 6:1, which might be what I need to get to my ideal weight.
When I was on 5:2, I didn’t eat at all on my fast days, because I found it easier not to eat then to eat a little bit and then stop.
Today is my first fast day in over a year, and it’s going well so far 🙂 I did realize that the combination of 16:8 and 6:1 would mean that I’m not eating at all for 40 hours straight (16+24), but I don’t think that’s a major problem.
I wanted to ask if anyone else has experience with combining 16:8 and 6:1? And if it has made a big difference compared to just 16:8?
Thanks in advance for any responses,
