  • Do you drink electrolytes? Are they necessary while eating carbs in the eating window?and how many meals do you recommend in the eating window?

  • thank you for not saying “eating carbs” is a mistake. really tired of the youtubers who talk about intermittent fasting while pushing just the ketogenic diet. that’s not possible due to cultural differences, in my case. im african, we eat a lot of carbs like rice, fruits and scratchy foods like pounded yams/cassava etc. cheese, bacon, heavy creams and all that other stuff that keto requires is not part of our diet. that would require a whole life change and when ppl say keto doesn’t require a huge change in diet, they’re only looking at it from an american view where eating things like cheese and bacon is common place already

  • Real good video but I think drinking coffee is not an actual fast. I’m pretty sure water is all you can ingest to get the full being it’s of the fast.
    In saying that I’m lucky to last 16 hours on a good day so if coffe works then good luck ��

  • Perhaps it’s helpful to point out that today’s carbs are not healthy aka over processed GMO and to differentiate between complex carbs and none complex carbs.

  • I would say that the 2 biggest issues are when people obsess about everything they put in their mouths.
    Both Jason Fung and Dr Panda stress the when not the what you eat, if I recall, so I don’t get hung up on the fact that I might have a slice of pizza, or a piece of cake. That said, obviously, it’s probably best to attempt to eat as healthily as poss.

    In addition, I’d say it’s not a good idea to obsess about exact timings every single day and to become totally inflexible about it.
    For example, ideally I’d stick to my eating window, but I don’t think anything horrific is going to happen if I go out for a later dinner with friends, or share breakfast/brunch with my family on the odd day….

    And, I’m also with people who stress that you don’t have to be vegan/carnivore/keto whatever in order to gain some benefits from IF/TRE etc.

  • 6:30 you cant drink caffeine if doing IF, watch dr. Rhona patrick on JRE she explains why, caffeine activates enzymes that interfere with the fast

  • I am Muslim we fast 19 hours a day one month I was thinking maybe that’s bad for body but I just realised that fasting in so good for health
    Thanks for your information

  • most chill and clear story about if, omad,carbs etc…..way to go Rayan…..only one thing, buy a better mic if possible:) greets,love from Holland

  • I tried the 16:8 before which I didn’t see much change with. But I saw really good results with OMAD. I would love to try the 20:4 soon. I think the reason that I didn’t see great results with the 16:8 is because I would gorge during my 8 hours LOL. And as you said you need to still be disciplined. Great video girl

  • Fasting is so amazing sis..agree with you so so much..we do the 20/4 most days and do 18/6 on the other days like weekends…90lbs down is awesome keep it pushing��������.keep the videos coming��

  • I definitely agree with your intermittent fasting ideas. As for Carbs, I think if are type 2 diabetic like me it might be worth trying the keto diet. It could be a video idea for you “do type 2 Diabetics need carbs when doing IF?”.. Love your content man..

  • Hello u showed a packet of sweet & low and said aspartame but that’s incorrect. Sweet and low is made with saccharin so which one will not trigger a response saccharin or Aspartame? Thanks

  • At the 4:40 mark u say full fat half and half wont break your fast but then u say its tricky cuz it well stop the atophogy but not kick u out of Ketosis. So does it break the fast? Please clarify?

  • everyone is different.

    i eat 6am to noon, with extended fasts on the weekends.

    i can’t tolerate fruit or grains. even cruciferous are limited to once per week, if that.

    occasional supplements.

    all this with a resistance training program and a bicycle ride a couple of times per week = humming.
