  1. Hi Kala,

    If you want to go from 3 to 2 or even 1 meal a day, it needs to be done slowly to give your body enough time to adapt. I personally get up by 6 or 7am, and eat my breakfast after 11am. So you can fast for few hours and eat your breakfast a bit later. Then ideally you can skip lunch and then eat a bit extra for your dinner. If you are having indian thali, you can simply add more of everything to whatever you eat. Eat slowly and stop when you are full. Try this pattern and let me know how this works for you.

  2. Hi Akash,

    I am 47 yrs old female with 5’5 height and 81kg weight. i am doing IF for a month now. havent reduced even one kg so far. i eat full lunch and full dinner too. i want to know what kind of breakfast i can have in place of lunch as i am avoiding milk these days and am a vegeterian so dont even eat eggs.

    my eating window is 12 to 8 pm. I was also wondering that if i do yoga or weights generally between 8 to 9, do i need to eat immediately or i can continue with fasting and have my food at my time 12 pm? does that harm?

    Best Regards

  4. Hi Nisha, if you sign up free for my newsletter, you will get access to the FAB-D Course which will provide you with many veg diet plans.

  5. hey, try to clear out your environment of junk and fast food. If its in front of you i.e. in your fridge or kitchen you will most probably end up eating it. Managing your environment is very important and will help you drastically reduce foods high in sugar. Also include a higher percentage of calories from proteins and fats which will keep your satiated and help curb the cravings and hunger. All the best.

  6. Hi Akash, what’s the FAB D course?
    I have purchased your UDEMY course for Weight loss. Checked ghis very helpful article. Would definitely love to have some Vegetarian plans.


  7. Hey Lavanya, You can check out the header tab for 4 free courses. You can subscribe free to my newsletter where one by one I’ll email you free links to the courses including the FAB-D course…which talks about a diet I created for people who want to lose weight. Its a variation of a standard ketogenic diet, however more than a diet, its a set of dietary guidelines that can be useful for anyone trying to lose fat.

  8. Thanks for wonderful article and sharing of your experience. I’m female, 50 yrs old, struggling with hormone issues etc, etc and I find that IF is great lifestyle. I’m practising it about 3 yrs, first by introduction of 12 hrs eating window and 12 hrs IF, now I’m on about 18-20 hrs IF daily, with 1-2 meals per day. During IF hours I drink only teas and water. I also tried prolonged fasting and 3 days is my top, not because I was unable to control hunger, but because some issues raised, like muscle weakness, pain in cartilage area. Just to mention, during these days I had light activity, including short workouts and walking (I do not run due to health issues). And it is very, very important to use supplements with essential minerals and vitamins, particularly Mg, else, you could feel sick (dizzy, severe weak, muscle aches, sleep deprivation).
    I’m performing this type of fasting every 2-3 months, something like detox. After 48 h and especially after fasting breakage, I feel extraordinary, but it takes time to get back into routine, particularly when eating is considered (about 2-3 days). Now I do not have hunger attacks during fasting, I learned and developed my model. So it is best for someone to try, experiment and develop something what works best for him/her.
    Fasting is not just to lose and manage weight, it is style of complete body, spirit and emotional regeneration. I think that fasting has helped me to improve my health overall, physical performance, and a way how I see the world.

  9. hi,
    i wake up at around 9:30-10 am and eat my first meal at 11 which is mostly just fruits. Then i prefer a heavy lunch which includes 2-3 chapati, sabji, a bowl of daal and then i eat a very light snack at 7 in the evening. is this okay? and also what if maybe once in two weeks you can’t follow the IF hours and eat a late dinner? how should i go about it?
