    What if you are already lean and an athlete. What's the general consensus for fasting post 50 for those women that are around 15%-20% body fat and perimenopausal or menopausal?

    I hadn’t heard about keto, until I was stay-at-home during COVID-19.

    I was running out of fresh food, and no food delivery. I had a supply of meat in the freezer, and some canned vegetables: julienne green beans, pumpkin, and in the freezer: okra, julienne green beans, and blueberries.

    I was concerned as fresh vegetables and fresh fruit were used up, and that was very soon.

    I purchased supplements online.

    There was no fresh food delivery, to order online, for this zipcode.

    In YouTube, I stumbled on your channel and Dr Sten Ekberg, and others.

    I decided the food I have on hand could be keto.

    I had olive oil.

    I like brunch or a mid-day meal emphasized and a light supper.

    Using what I had, I made my food intake match keto and 18:4 internittant fasting to stretch the food I had as long as I could.

    I chose the fatty meats in smaller amounts, and a 1-2 oz protein snack of steak I cut up if I wanted something, anything, to eat.

    I had some fish in the freezer, but not enough so I ordered a supplement.

    I kept going, and finally the grocery store arranged delivery outside our door.

    By then, I was on keto.

    ..and I felt satiety: not cravings.

    I had good energy.

    I had started to “feel my age”.

    ..that was gone.

    I felt like I did in my early 20’s.

    I was concerned I had lost weight so fast, I purchased more supplements and I started walking outdoors early in the morning 3x a week, to not lose muscle.

    I hadn’t tried to lose weight.

    Now that we have access to go out to grocery stores in the early hours, I was looking for “cheat meals” to slow my weight loss.

    This is what I search for now.

    What “cheat meals” can I do to slow weight loss and get right back to keto?

    I did not get energy from a cake donut. I felt old again.

    I think the frozen cubes of banana squash is along the lines of the right idea.

    I think no carbs with fat will need to be “the rule”.

    I feel it go right to the places that would “broaden my horizons”.

    I have decided much more quantity of zero and low carb vegetables may be the answer.

    What do you say?

    Does Intermittent Fasting slow down our metabolism? Does the body get accustomed to eating only fewer calories forever?

    When do I work out. I have been doing intermittent fasting but I have a bullet proof coffee in the morning so I can work out. I will add a pre-work out if I am struggling also. So what do I do to get energy in the morning when I work out?

    Dr. Becky, I am 57 and have just started intermittent fasting, and I have a question. I drink coffee with cacao powder and sugar free Torani vanilla syrup, is that ok with IF? Love your videos.

    I'm 58 and overweight and new to intermittent fasting. I tried doing 16:8 after being introduced to it by a friend of mine. I feel terrible growling in the tummy during the last 3 to 4 hours, resulting in heartburn and pain in forehead, which worsen after eating at the end of 16 hours. I would be grateful if you could help me in this. BTW it's my day 6 of IF. I keep sipping on cold water in these 3,4 hours but it's not helping either.

    Today will be my 5th day of fasting, and I feel great! I need to join a group of fastens so I can see what others are doing; specifically, what vitamins I should or shouldn't take. I started straight out with 18/6, but I am not doing Keto.

    Dr. Becky, thank you for your insightful videos I'm a huge fan. I have type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease which is due from the diabetes. I do intermittent fasting as well, 16/8. my question that I hope you can answer is because when you intermittent fast you should drink a little salt in water, I add half a teaspoon of pink salt and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to 2 cups of cool water every morning. My question is because I have CKD, and I have to watch my salt intake with CKD, is it safe to take salt when I'm intermittent fasting while I have CKD? I'm confused lol. I'm 61 yrs old. I hope you can answer my question because I'm not getting answers from anybody else. Thank you so much!

    I started yesterday on the 16/8, but didn't quite make it to 16. Hoping to build it up over the next couple of days, until my body gets used to the new eating schedule. I do dinner at 4 pm and plan breakfast at 8 am. Up til now I did breakfast between 5 and 6 am or even earlier.

    I am 61 years old and have been doing IF 16/8 for almost four months. My goal has been to lose 10 pounds or so. I have been trying to follow all the guidelines for success, but I have not lost a pound. I weigh the same as the day I started. I stopped weighing myself everyday because it was quite discouraging. Do you have any thoughts as to what could be stopping my progress? I do take Bioidentical Hormones.

    How do you get through the night hungry? If I'm hungry at night I cannot sleep. There's no discussion of hunger while fasting?

    I do OMAD, so I guess you can call that intermittent fasting ! All my bloating is gone and my pants are significantly looser, and I feel better. The scale is my kryptonite so I am going by how I look and feel through this as my goal is just to get healthier and feel better about myself. When you bend over to put on your shoes, have trouble doing it and you get short of breath, it's not a good thing. I am very hopeful with this, and it's easy for me because I was a breakfast skipper anyway. Now I skip lunch too so it's not a big jump. Good luck to everyone !

    Thank you for your videos. Recent blood results returned high cholesterol, low Vit D and normal blood pressure. Do you think high fat is ok for me? I am concerned about getting enough calcium.

    I’m a 62 year old cyclist. Post menopause for a decade. I wanted to lose a pesky 9 lbs that I acquired since I had to stop running in 2012. IF has helped me lost 6 lbs over the course of 6 weeks. I’ve been keeping to about 1600 calories during breakfast and lunch and then fasting till the next breakfast. Doing the 16:8. I notice a significant decrease in muscle and joint soreness in the mornings and increased aerobic capacity during my workouts. All in all nothing bad to report except hunger pangs here and there

    I've been doing IF for one week (16:8) with amazing results, but as I listen to videos on utube I'm getting more confused about it and wonder if I'm doing it right. I don't want to lose weight, I just want to be healthy, and I wonder what I should eat during that eating window, in which order and how much for optimal health and 'cleanup'. Some videos say that authophagy kicks in only after 48 hours of fasting?! So what is the truth? 12, 16, 24, 48, etc hours of fasting? I'd be more than grateful if you answered my questions… thanx in advance 🙂

    Stress, in its extreme form, is the main course of health probs i am thinkin, yes, the rite food is our medicine/balance, absolute, for sure..but, i hav lived this heathy kind of way of eating, as in lovely n most excellent knowledgeable/intuitive Dr Beckys way, since i was diagnosed by medical professionals as having a few months max to live wen i was 21yrs old, that was the early 80s, i sort n followed ancient n as of 80s, then, new info on hebal etc n organic/healing body ie massage n bowen techniques etc/metaphysical ways since that time, plus, my own intuition, which we all hav as our personal guide to being well..i got weller n stayed well enough, until menopause, at my menopausal time frame i lost the love of my life to cancer, had to take boarders/strangers into my sacred home to cover my now single persons costs, became run down frm stress of all that, plus, grief, plus woman hormonal changes, next minute, went frm fab figure by 50yrs to fat as house by 54..stuck to good diet of healthy fats, organic greens, intermittent fasting etc, all by mostly intuition plus sum health research, but alas, nothing has helped with the belly fat etc..so, if it helps anyone, i hav been an example of how big cortisol increase due to stress at menopause hormone change can affect the body weight increase..my latest remedy idea/advice is to change the life to suit a less stressful situation, plus, also learn to accept in a relaxed way the body changes that u cannot change due to a natural process n still walk in nature n continue Dr Beckys advice n do anything to alleviate excess stress..also, i think genetical imprints may play a big part, as, i have 2 menopausal friends in mid 50s, who are still in great fit looking shape n energy, even tho they hav loads of excess work related stress, but, they both exercise at gym n eat according to wot their bodies say, nooo belly etc fat..

    You mean I can have a brownie hot fudge sundae as long as it's more than 3 hours before bed time? 😀 . Just kidding.

    In all seriousness though, I have been doing intermittent fasting 12-14 hours, the rest eating and sleeping, for one week so far. I have already lost 3 pounds. I'm a 58-year-old female post menopause. I was skinny all my life no matter WHAT I ate. Most of my life I was actually TRYING to GAIN weight, believe it or not. I hit 50 and the pounds piled on. Now I need to lose at least 20-25 pounds. I think intermittent fasting is what will finally help me. Thank you!
