so I started using the 16/8 method 2 weeks ago. I got a new job tho and I need to work from 14 pm to 10:30 pm. Right now I eat at 1 pm and at around 9 pm. Now my question is would it be possible to to stretch my eating intervall from 1 pm to 11 pm? So I can eat just before and right after work? Would I still get the same, less or possibly more benefits from the 16/8 split.

If instead of trying to work around the 16:8 on a new schedule, why not do the 600 calorie/day 5:2 Fasting regime? It might solve some of your problems. If your goal is to lose weight and get the other benefits of Fasting, I recommend the standard 600 calories/day, for 2 days/week.
Ah i just noticed i forgot to mention that i always go to the gym before my 1st meal. I want to build muscle while loosing fat. If i do the 5 2 split will this work if i just supplement accordingly on fast days?
