I'm very routine-oriented. I tend to do my physical activity in the mornings, usually fasted, and I'll graze from around noon until 5-6. I tend to then have a huge meal each day, probably 60% or more of my intake in the evenings once I'm done for the day. I love to be in the kitchen, create different things and enjoy it. That's tough to do going from the gym to the office and running errands.
I've really taken to IF, so besides a cup of coffee with a tablespoon of heavy cream, most days I fast from 8PM until about 5PM the following day.
23 pounds lost in 89 days so far.
I eat lunch and dinner every day. usually that's about 1/2pm and 9pm.
In between I may have a whey shake before a workout and some sugar like coconut water or honey water post workout.
The first meal is smallish, around 5-700 calories. The second, dinner, is pretty big. I'll do 2000 calories at dinner. Then sleep.
1-2 meals a day, depending...usually just one. Big and well balanced- meat, vegetable(s), sweet potato(es).
If feel I need a boost, I eat fruit, NOT nuts.
I am well "fat adapted," but that does not mean carbs do not play an important role in my diet. They provide nutrients, calories, help facilitate nutrient uptake, reduce cortisol, and definitely help make the meal satisfying.
Very lean and happy with my physique.
I do 18/6 intermittent fasting. I usually eat one big meal and one smaller, snack-sized meal during my 6-hour eating "window." It works really well for me, plus makes it a hell of a lot easier to keep the kitchen clean.
Never more that thrice a day. usually twice, and sometimes once. If you are eating real food and are fat-adapted, you won't be hungry in 3-4 hours. If you want to keep from being fat-adapted and always dependant on being able to find paleo food options, keep snacking.
When hungry. But usually 18-20 hour fast till the evening. Some days I get a fatigue-hunger, and usually then I just eat. Normal hunger is enjoyable and not a problem. But fatigue is another story.
