When Do Hunger Pains and Weakness Go Away on 16/8 Intermittent Fasting?

Hi Everyone,

I am doing the 16/8 IF.

However, even after 5 days, the hunger is intense.

Even trying to move groceries and a big water bottle last night, I could barely have the strength to do it. I felt very fatigued, irritable, tense, and almost depressed and anxious. I was very hungry and want to simply break down and eat.

1. Leangains.com says it will go away within a few days.

2. Is there any actual science in it?

I know people say ghrelin has something to do with it.

3. If it is still a problem, at the end of this weekend, after seven days, I will give up and simply do a 6 meal of protein + carb program.


Is there any reason against this?

If this was Ketosis, people would say to stick with it for 14 days.

How often would you eat before you went fasting?
when do you wake up, when do you eat your 8 hr window?
Try adjusting it. Waking up and eating a breakfast and a light lunch may be easier to then wait till bed than waking and fasting till lunch and a light dinner

Sorry, when I post a new thread, it posts multiple times.

Sorry for over-thinking. I am just trying hard to find something that works. 16/8 fasting was too hard for me.
