  1. Fasting as well as skipping meals can cause gallstones. The bile is in your gallbladder ready to be transported but since you don't eat it stays there, can harden and form "stones". It's better to simply cut calories by choosing the right foods and eat every 3 hours or so during the day.

  2. HI 👋 👋 👋 I been asking Everyone for 1 week I need help please I did intermittent fasting it’s a diet u skip breakfast to loose weight and

    I did it before 1 month was ok and started last week I did it for 5 days and forgot to drink water only 1 cup and I I started eating normally on Saturday. Had sides effect chest pain and dizzy. And now it’s happening again this time my left chest.

    I checked my doctor last week checked my blood pressure and mid chest where it pained and to take big breath and take Paracetamol.

    Can you please tell me what to do?
    I’m worried

    Sorry it’s long

  3. IF has made my sleep better. My biggest issue has been binge eating AND social eating. My IF schedule is 2pm – 8am. This works great for me. My body does not work well if I eat anytime after 5pm. However, all of my friends and family eat between so its hard when family/friends dinner is between 6pm-10pm. Help Please :). The acting bro. Hahaha.

  4. Strategy is definitely an important key component! I always plan my meals just before fasting and the meal I brake my fast with, it’s important to eat the right things! Great vidoe

  5. Thank goodness you cleared that up! I've never had heartburn in my entire life. I was a six meal a day person. And I am just a couple weeks into, but thrilled with, intermittent fasting! Thank you so much

  6. I’m on day 7 and I’ve just noticed mild heartburn now. I do have more mild headaches now as well and I rarely get headaches. TMI but I’m also having way more bowel movement than usual which is actually good for me since I don’t have a bowel movement everyday. The first few days though was more like, um, wet poo.

    Overall I feel better way better than I used to! I have way more energy now and I can feel my body reshaping itself. Not a bunch of progress quite yet but I’m hopeful.

  7. I have been working the OMAD diet for the last 2 months and honestly have not come across much of an issue other than wanting coffee more then i usually do but for the most part i have had nothing but positive results and i wake up extra happy unlike before lol

  8. A side effect I get is after eating, I need a nap, lol! When I break my fast, I will get tired. I usually eat 1 or 2 real meals a day. I figured it was due to my insulin spiking too high or something. I tried breaking it with something light, maybe even juice, and then eat a meal (not too big) a little while later and it's not so bad. I'm gonna try to limit sugar when breaking my fast and see how that works.

    Other than that, my energy levels are very good – I literally have been walking 5+miles everyday consecutively for the last 14 days while fasted for more than 16 hours, so no prob with energy. And I don't drink a lot of coffee, but whenever I am able to, it's for the taste, rarely, if ever, for the extra energy, lol! Now coffee does help to curve my appetite, although I rarely use it for that anymore, if at all (but I prob would if I wanted to do a 24+ hr fast) 🙂

  9. I didn't get headaches, heartburn or cravings because I eased into it.
    Here's a real downside of intermittent fasting: When your results are undeniable because you look lean, it can make some people feel comparatively inadequate, causing them to label it as "an eating disorder".

  10. The only thing that happens to me is when I break the fast I would feel like I was gonna puke.🤢 Maybe what I was eating was too heavy, but I'm going to try something lighter like tuna or tilapia. I would break my fast with heavy meats like steak and such, bad idea.

  11. Just an FYI, you might want to research the part about heartburn and why it happens so that you can educate your followers the right way. When you fast the acid in your stomach decreases so much that it allows the “door” pyloric sphincter between your stomach and esophagus open up this allowing the acid in your stomach to get past and into your esophagus. A high acid content is what keeps that door shut. Drinking lemon juice or apple cider vinegar gets rid of heartburn right away during a fast. DONT TAKE ANTACIDS or you’ll make it way worse.
