I’ve been doing intermittent fasting for 2 weeks 20/4 and not seeing any results. What am I doing wrong? I do have 1 tbsp of heavy cream with my coffee every morning (I read and was told 1 tbsp doesn’t break the fast). How long does it take before the pounds start coming off? I’m loving the energy I’ve and don’t mind the fasting part at all so overall I love it but just need the weight to come off.

I'd give it a month before you drastically switch tactics. I've always heard (who knows if it's true) that as your fat cells empty out they can essentials fill with water, and then a week or so later your body will flush all that out. So you may have lost fat, you just don't know it yet. I will say, anecdotally, that does happen for me from time to time - I'll be stalled for a couple weeks and then suddenly have a pop that brings me back on track. If your energy level is good, then you should be getting into keto just fine.

Thanks SC1 - that does make sense and may be true. I’ve noticed it in myself some weeks (down 17 pounds so far but not all of it through intermittent). I was working out quite a bit but it’s gotten busier now and so had to cut down a bit and also ended up with a sprain so that’s limited activities I can do for the time being.

I’ve read that realistically to maintain the fast black coffee or herbal tea is okay, but once you have additives like sugar, stevia, dairy, etc you essentially break your fast.

Yeah I guess by the time I drink coffee, I’m probably around 16/8 anyways. I usually stop eating around 7pm and drink coffee around 10am ish so that puts me around 15 hours. I will take into account what SC1 said below before making changes - I love my coffee with cream too much.

Hello! Any women here in an executive role within a FAANG/tech organization? Over the past year I've had interviews with Google, Uber and Amazon/aws- and so far I've always resolved to stay within 'consulting' because I'm unsure if the 'exit' would be the right move for me. My question is, what is it like being an executive female leader inside a FAANG - and any guidance on moving into a FAANG as an external hired executive. Thanks & happy friday!
