A double YES! from me.

The story of how I combined them, then hitting and maintaining a lower weight than in college, was published on Marty Kendall's website: https://optimisingnutrition.com/jul...driven-fasting/ (Julia is my FB name)

My recently added success story here delves more into the Nutritional Optimization/ food aspect of The P:E Diet and links the other threads on those two topics.

Hi Demi, just want to make sure I interpret your question correctly. I eat two meals a day with an 18-hour window between my last meal of the first day and my first meal of the next day, say last meal is 6pm and next meal is next day at 12pm. So, my two meals are at 12pm and 6pm every day. If you consider that IF, which some do, then I've been doing this with higher protein for the past 2 years with good results. I'm not trying to lose weight, I'm pursuing good health with stable weight and well-controlled blood sugar. During this time, I've also cut back on fat, not radically, but it's lower than before, also with good results. I increased my protein after reading and watching some Bikman and Naiman presentations and reading Naiman's book, The PE Diet: Leverage Your Biology to Achieve Optimal Health. One recommendation to increase protein as one ages got my attention, as I'm in year 70 and want to maintain muscle mass along with a healthy weight.

I feel great with more protein, a bit less fat, and my hunger is controlled very well. I don't limit what I eat, but I don't care to overeat with the exception of certain trigger foods. You could say my increase in protein and a few more healthy carbs supplanted my previous amount of fat. While I used to do longer IF periods, I no longer feel the need to do so. Hope this helps.

Except for the timing of my meals I eat like Rob does, 2 meals a day, high protein, somewhat lesser fat than previously somewhat greater carbs than previously. I eat at around 8 AM and 3 PM with no snacks. It's working well for me.

Janet, Rob and Jean, many thanks for answering my question

Always good to see what works for others in the hope it may also work for me.

My intention is carry on with IF. Although I've been eating OMAD for the last week because I have been particularly hungry, my usual regime is more or less the same as Rob's. Two meals a day, one at lunchtime (around 12.30pm) and one in the evening (around 6.30pm).

I give equal credit to Ted Naiman's P:E Diet and Marty Kendall's Fasting protocol using your BG pre-meal. Though now after a year I could fix the the time at 12 and 6, testing is a good reminder to be sure my 'fuel tank" is really getting close to empty. Happy to help you..think we already have meal ideas on the two threads in Semi-Low Carb forum
