I would like to thank you also. I am a normal weight female and very active in the gym. I tried IF and I felt miserable. I have such a hard time function which lead me to this site. I kept trying to convince myself that this is going to take willpower and I just have to get through the training stage. I don’t even know if it’s worth continuing after reading this article. I think that I will stop because it’s simply ruining my workload. I can try again later in life when there’s better research geared towards normal weight, active females. However now I know that eating breakfast is not an absolute and we can beat Market America if we choose to.
