Intermittent Fasting Meals – Meal Plan for 16/8 Intermittent Fasting
- August 16, 2020
Intermittent Fasting Meals – my meal plan for weight loss success results with intermittent fasting using the 16/8 method.
I have been intermittent fasting for a couple of months now. I’ve found that what works for me is an eating window from 8am to 4pm and a fasting window from 4pm until 8am the following morning. I’ve been going this every day and LOVE this way of eating.
My day usually begins with a MASSIVE breakfast and then I’ll have a second big meal later in the day, usually between 12pm and 1pm.
Regarding snacks, my days vary – sometimes I’ll have something between my two meals and sometimes I’ll have a little something just before 4pm. It just depends on my day and what’s planned, as no two days are the same with my lifestyle.
In this post I’m going to share a glimpse at what some of my intermittent fasting meals looks like. And, I’m going to keep adding to it as I have more meals in the coming months/years. So, be sure to save/bookmark/pin this to come back to in the future.
Intermittent Fasting Breakfasts
As I mentioned above, I like starting my day with a BIG breakfast. Usually, but not always, eggs and a serve of vegetables, or three.
I spent about a year on the low carb keto diet, so my breakfasts are usually keto friendly. Here’s a look at some of my recent breakfast plates.
In the above big breakfast there’s:
- Fried Eggs
As you can tell I LOVE crispy fried eggs for breakfast. In the above breakfast I fried up some salami slices until crispy before cracking in the eggs.
If a veggie breakfast is what I’m after, then lately I’ve been loving fried eggs with creamed spinach. (Click here for the recipe or click play below for the video tutorial.)
When a lighter breakfast is what I feel like, then I’ll have yoghurt with berries and chia seeds, as pictured above.
Intermittent Fasting Lunch/Dinner
I tend to have one large second meal of the day either at around lunch time or close to 4pm – just depends on my day.
Above is a hearty roast lamb with vegetables – carrots and potatoes – a classic meat and two veg meal that’s perfect to see you through a lengthy intermittent fast.
I’ve started to slowly introduce bread back into my diet in the form of organic sourdough made by a local bakery. It doesn’t leave me feeling bloated and I have a piece every other day or so in a meal like the baked brie pictured above. (Get the baked brie recipe here and hit play below to watch the gooey recipe being prepared.)
Intermittent Fasting Snacks
Depending on my day, sometimes I’ll snack between breakfast and lunch otherwise I’ll have a little something just prior to 4pm. Lately that has been my low carb hot chocolate (click here for the recipe or hit play below to watch the hot chocolate being made) which fills me up for the rest of the day.
