Since the school year started, I thought it would be a good time to start trying to IF.
I'm 100% Paleo, no dairy (except butter) or fruit, and have been for a while.
I go to bed every night at 9-9:30. Usually eat my last food around 7:45. Every morning around 5:30 I'll either do free weights or HIIT for a half hour or so. Then I'll have coffee, but no food until around 2:45 PM. So I guess it would be a 19 hour fast, but with sleep included.
Anyway, I first want to know: does this seem okay? Am I setting myself back by IF'ing post workout?
Also: My parents are freaking out about this. It was hard enough getting them to let me eat Paleo, but the notion that I would dare contradict the 'breakfast as day-determining' belief is outrageous. What can I show them to make them more open to the idea of IF?
