You're doing a spontaneous intermittent fast, nothing wrong with that. Just make sure you're getting enough food for the whole day when you do eat, and avoid bingeing on only one type of food (i.e. tons of carbs), and make sure what you eat are... (more)

I have recently experienced how low magnesium can trigger binge attacks. Stress can cause magnesium loss. Epson salt soaks might be a good way to go about it if you can't get the stress reduced.

Hmm, I doubt that eating something with FODMAPS yesterday would make you hungrier today. Is it possible you ate less yesterday because you were bloated and full-feeling, so today your body is just trying to compensate for the shortage?

I have noticed it increases my appetite too. I am not sure why, but I am guessing because the food is being digested properly leaving very little hanging out in your stomach?

Good news, you don't have a problem. For maximum growth hormone potential, you're not supposed to eat for at least two hours after a workout. (The insulin spike would blunt the growth hormone release.) Keep up the good work!
