I see a lot of conflicting info on this. Does IF slow down your metabolism? Does it matter if you are a male or a female? Please share your experience.

IF does not lower your metabolism, sustained caloric deficits do. Prolonged fasting actually has been seen to slightly increase your metabolism. If you’re really interested in learning more, pick up The Obesity Code by Jason Fung

Your metabolism slows significantly after 72 hours of not consuming a significant amount of carbohydrates. (Ketosis may be an exception to this, but I don't know enough about it to comment there.)

This is due to falling leptin levels. Leptin is produced by fat cells, and since women have a higher body fat percentage than similarly fit men, I would expect the effect to be less pronounced in women than in men, but haven't researched that directly.

Science and medical journals say that you have to be at a calorie deficits for over 24 hours before it will affect your metabolism. That’s actually why it works.

Since the fasting periods are not that long- you can really gain traction and not mess with your metabolism.

There are 500 ways to do it.
But for me. If I eat a heavy breakfast and lunch- then I drink fluids at night and I lose tons of weight naturally… so it will be different for everybody. Look for the long term solution for YOU .

Curious if this happens to anyone else - I workout regularly (mix of cardio and strength training) and eat healthy 90% of times. I make sure to eat veggies and protein in almost every meal, alongside some carbs. In general, I’m a big foodie and do love food. But I am CONSTANTLY hungry. No matter how satiated I feel after a meal, I’m hungry again in an hour. Not sure if this is psychological more than physical, but I’m trying to lose weight and this is making it so tough!

I grabbed dinner with a friend during restaurant week (first time in ages!) and completely blacked out/fell on the floor waiting for dessert. Medics who arrived said my vitals were fine. The only thing I did differently was have a couple glasses of wine (first intake since NYE). Has this happened to you and do you know the cause? I’m getting a full physical with blood work. In retrospect, I’m glad I was out when this happened instead of alone at my place.
