Does anyone do intermittent fasting and count their macros?

Asked 4 years ago

I currently count my macros but would also like to start intermittent fasting. Does anyone else do this?

I tried intermittent fasting for about 3 weeks and really struggled to eat enough food during the eating window, so I stopped fasting because it caused me a lot of stress for very little benefit.

I follow intermittent fasting and macro counting. I found that it is much easier to fit all of my macros in if I start eating earlier in the day, so my eating window starts at 11 am and ends at 5 pm.

If you're following intermittent fasting correctly, then it isn't necessary to count your macros. That's one of the advantages of following intermittent fasting!

The fasting itself isn't what causes fat loss. The reason that people lose weight when following intermittent fasting is that they tend to eat in a calorie deficit as they have less time to eat during the day.

Tracking macros and following intermittent fasting is a great way to make sure that you are in fact in a calorie deficit, whilst ensuring that you consume sufficient protein and fiber.

I followed a 16/8 hour intermittent fasting period with macro counting and saw great results! I chose to eat between 12 and 8 pm so that I would be able to have lunch with my colleagues and dinner with my family.

I don't count my macros but I have been doing intermittent fasting for about 2 months now. Sunday's are my rest day, so I fast for the whole of Sunday every week. I have already lost 18 pounds in 2 months!

I have been doing intermittent fasting for a year now and I have learned that I have to count and track my protein intake regularly to make sure that I am eating enough of it. When I don't track my protein, my recovery is very slow and I get a lot of aches and pains after training. I only fast during the week and take weekends off to relax and enjoy food with friends and family.
