IF Start and Question
 
I did the V-Diet for the past month and have now transitioned onto a IF regimen where I break my fast sometime around 6pm and have a feeding window of about 4 hours. I was going to do a slow transition off of the V-Diet but after delaying my first meal until noon my first day, I put off my first meal until 5 the second and have had no problems doing this. This was surprising since I had tried the Warrior diet approach and was miserable. I definately think the V-Diet made it easier on me.

I did my first fasted workout yesterday at about 1:30 pm. It was a GS style kettlebell workout w/a set of Jerks and Snatches. I felt no different, and performed no differently than I usually do. I had two shots of espresso afterward and had a fantastic time coaching football for the next three hours.

I do have a question that I'd like some advice on. On Fridays I coach games during the time I would normally eat. Should I just move my window forward or back to accomodate my schedule? Moving it up to between 1-5 is more convinient, but i'd move it back if that was better. Thoughts?

if youre fasting every other day of the week - i would just move the window to whatever fits your schedule.

and it looks like you'll still hit 15 hours, assuming on thurs you stop eating at 10 pm, and then break the fast at 1 pm fri. a bit shorter than you're other days - but still getting a fast in, and its works for your schedule.

Check out how you feel by Friday, I personally would go by what is more convenient.
