    for me, I bike faster in the morning after a cup of coffee and empty stomach.
    heading home in the afternoon, I feel sluggish after eating (best if I wait an hour), usually facing a lot of headwind so maybe another reason why it's harder for me.
    Ditto... but also way more uphill on the way home haha, close to 50m difference according to Strava

    Reading back through this thread makes it seem like I should be dead. I've never followed any diet regimen and really don't have any set eating patterns. I don't work out although I have a somewhat physical job. My weight hasn't varied by more than 8kg over the past 20 years though my previous GP said I was borderline obese, 181cm and 93-97kg. Sleep, about 5-6 hours a night.

    So all things considered, how am I still alive because it sure sounds like I shouldn't be. Have never smoked, that's probably a bonus, haven't done any recreational drugs in over 20 years and lucky if I have one drink in a month. Still borderline obese though.

    One caution I will say, I've been doing it just about 13 months now. Lost ~30lbs overall but more importantly didn't have the usual 10-15 lb swing that I get from summer to winter and vice versa. I got lax in my tracking and started to just 'go' with how it felt. I didn't eat breakfast much, would usually do 20:4 during the week. Nothing on weekends. However I am not sure what happened but I put 7 lbs back on. Granted not nearly as bad as normal swing but I think what I thought I was doing and what I was actually doing were quite different. So I don't know if maybe I went too far and my body went into survival mode or if my idea of 20:4 was actually more like 10:14. Either way I'm back onto 16:8 schedule and tracking it. Already seeing and feeling improvements.

    Maybe in your 20:4 you end up eating more than when you were doing 16:8? Best to track it.

    This right here. No matter what your goals are, if you aren't tracking it and paying attention to it, you are not doing as good as you think you are.

    Read "thinking fast and slow" if you want to learn more about the unconscious decisions that you make thousands of times a day, that are almost all focused on finding the least effort solution.

    IF is not a license to blow your caloric budget. A few people I know have fallen into that line of thinking.

    Yeah, I use it as the easiest way to reduce my calories, and I find it really successful at that.

    Two weird things:

    1. Corona anxiety has almost eliminated my appetite. I can't usually force food down until about 2pm nowadays. So now I guess I'm IM?
    2. I randomly stopped drinking coffee last wednesday. For no reason at all. lol
