Intermittent Fasting??

I've read a few articles about this and it seems pretty interesting, they all mention skipping breakfast though (as part of your 16 hour fast) I like to train in the mornings and I usually ate muesli or porridge before I go in to help with energy levels. Instead of skipping breakfast would it still work if I had my last meal earlier at night? ie. 4pm then eating breakfast at 10am

I've intermittent fasted many, many times and really the time of day you eat doesn't matter as long as you conduct the fasting period. I'd generally have my last food/protein shake at 8pm and then wouldn't eat until 12 noon. That's with fasted am cv also which helped with fat loss. Add a stimulant to your training in the morning and getting to your first meal is easy.

Thanks for the reply mate. I started last night, I had my last meal at 4pm. I was hungry later on and around 10pm I got a slightly sore stomach (didn't matter as it was nearly bed time) I did wake up around 4am feeling sick though, it could have nothing to do with the fasting though or maybe because it was my 1st night. I'm going to do the same thing today and hopefully I'll feel ok later. I did have a good day in training, don't know if that was down to the pre-workout though lol

You may enjoy the change. I always train fasted in the mornings.

Yeah, I do feel like I have to change things up a little anyway. My diet has been good for around 6 months and in that time I've been losing fat. But lately not only have I stopped losing fat I think I've put some back on
