I was scrolling through and I found this thread, finally. I know I haven't had Any Snacks cause from the 1st to this week, I only ate one meal a day. A few days in there were fast days too. I'm eating 2 meals a day this week. I try to eat one at 4, then another at 6. I've been a bit late on some cause I've been working outside and time slipped by. But I'm doing good. I do not snack. I only eat during my meals. I try to keep my eating window short. Not more than one hour. Sometimes less. I fast from about 7:00pm to 4:00pm the next day.

Kathleen I don't think it matters. Whatever you want to do. There's no weight loss challenge associated with this, just an "aha - that's what happens when you don't eat all day long!"

April no snacking Challenge:

1 - Lunch 1240 - 110; Dinner 425 - 455
2 - Lunch 1140 - 1210; Dinner 5:15 - 6:15
3 - Lunch 135 - 200; Dinner 615 - 650
4 - Lunch 1140 - 1200; Dinner 415 - 450
5 - Lunch 1150 - 1210; Dinner 6:15 - 6:45 plus one glass of wine at 9:00
6 - Breakfast 900 - 930 Dinner

Way to go Kathleen on losing 2 pounds already!! I'm back down to where I was the beginning of March. Now I start to lose hopefully.

Wow that was quick! I like to stretch it out a bit. And now I need to make sure I eat enough in three meals to cover my calorie requirements.

Wow, I've never seen that at any of our Walmarts in Kansas so that means we won't see it here for at least 1-2 years after it appears on east or west coast. Sounds like an interesting product!!

I just read James post about having black coffee to cut out those calories.
I stopped using all dairy--BUT my SIL told me about NUT PODS … NO sugar; unsweetened,
(She was on Whole-30 and had to cut dairy and sugar; so I ordered some and it is good,
and I feel like I am getting away with something! emoticon …



…:::And to think I ordered it online and find out Walmart carries it! emoticon
(I got original; don't like the sweet flavors)

I think the point of this challenge is to eat 3 (or 2 for some) meals a day, no snacking. I'm going to view snacking as consuming calories before breakfast, between any meals, or after the last meal of the day. Not a matter of how chewable those calories are.

The challenge for me (among others) will be to not drink 3 or so cups of coffee in the morning. I consume about 300 calories from that. I'm going to look at that as a snack. So I'll either drink my coffee black, or with a bit of Mio, or I'll have it as part of breakfast with cream.

I think the point is not to spread the calories out, but have them at 3 distinct times or meals.

I'm in if controlling snacking is the goal here. I usually only eat two meals a day.
Would having a coffee with butter be considered a snack? I often have one after dinner if I feel I want something more. Dinner for us is about 4:30

Limelite and James - that's just an extra bonus!! TRE of 12-8 or 12-6 or 1-7 or whatever...

I usually eat only lunch and dinner. For me - that looks like 1 pm lunch, 5-6 pm dinner.

I'm fine with those parameters.

Hi friends! Sorry to be a stranger. I'm 100% in for this challenge, as long as it's cool that I do two meals per day, every day. I'm definitely enjoying this intermittent fasting thing, and I'm going to be cutting my eating window down a bit and try 18/6, rather than the 16/8 I've been doing this week. :)

I'm in. Are we trying to limit the feeding window too? Intermittent fasting style? I'm in for that as well, and even if that isn't part of the challenge I'm planning to do that anyways.

I love the April challenge. I will find it a bit challenging not to take a bite at 3PM and after dinner.

For me breakfast & lunch are easy 30 minute meals but I take one hour for dinner.
I am assuming that all liquids are okay between meals and not considered snacking.
Of course NO smoothie type drinks? LOL

Count me in!

Bev Anne this is what I do every day. 2 meals. With a little snacking now and then that I will attempt to eliminate. On weekends, maybe 3 meals. In any case - the hard and fast rule will be NO SNACKING!!

Can I participate in this challenge by only eating 2 distinct meals a day? I have been eating this way for a long time and it works for me.

Julia the point of the challenges is just to try something that may be new, or different..some wont want to do them...others will.
I have said many times...as much as i hate that i'm alone, i think its one of the main reasons keto was so easy for me.
The man that i was with for 10 years was forever trying to "fix" his bad stomach. he tried every fad, every supplement, everything he could..he is norwegian, and his entire family has always had trouble with their stomachs. I think he may even have tried keto for a time, but i dont think he gave it enough time...
anyhow..it was sad for me that he wouldnt eat what i ate, wouldnt eat with me. it made it very difficult. i can really sympathize.
on the restaurant thing...i've found that the few times i get to go out, first they bring bread...i just dont eat it. then comes the salad, and i usually have that...then the main comes sometimes when i'm still finishing. so i eat that. then dessert..which i dont eat. so i'm still in the eating window. but thats me. at home...i get my plate..go eat, and am done. usually in about 20 mins...
but other cultures...a supper might take 2 hours!!

do whats comfortable...this is more to get out of the snacking habit than anything...

OH!! and AS ALWAYS...if you are diabetic, or have other problems that you need to snack, please, PLEASE know as always what your doctor says comes first!!
I tend to be a free ranger, and find myself eating just because i walked in the kitchen. this is why i had to give up all nuts. too easy to grab a few. then another few the next time i walk past. and before i know it...i;ve had half a cup...and am over in carbs and protein.

Most restaurants (unless you are at an "all you can eat trough" errr I mean, "buffet") the experience pretty much limits "snacking" because you are there waiting for the food and if you take an hour to eat and talk, there's not really much of a snacking opportunity (other than fighting off the "fresh homemade bread" or the "baskets of crackers" etc that most of us are used to requesting not be served...)...

It is a challenge for me, mostly because I'm herding cats here... husband is on one time cycle and son is on another time cycle so who is at which meal tends to be random. Sometimes I just want to eat by myself just to fuel with what I know I need, rather than what would be "popular" with the non-keto family...

absolutely! i was thinking that..that if you were at a function or whatever and being served it may be more than 30 mins. i think the point is...dont stretch the eating time out so far that you are calling a snack a meal...

Love this challenge - but can we have dinner have a one hour time limit? This allows for more conversation and going out for dinner as well. I love the no snacks. Sometimes you just want to nibble on something - when you're not even hungry. This will eliminate the problem.

I'm posting early while i'm thinking about it..so people can prepare.
I will make this a sticky on the 1st...if i dont please give me a prod!!


This month's challenge may be hard for some. Pretty much every one of the successful experts will tell you to eat 3 distinct meals a day. No snacking. the reasoning is that every time you eat your insulin goes up. this prevents fat loss..But, you also REALLY want to keep your body fueled. So 3 is the number they feel is the optimum for steady fat loss.

so, your challenge this month is 3 distinct meals. you pick when. No snacking. And limit your meal to 30 minutes.

Now..we are not looking for perfection here, but progress. If you are used to snacking this may be difficult for a few days. Try to eat enough at your meals so you wont be hungry in between.

Posting...let us know how you are doing. how many meals you had and for how long you ate. Again..there is no bad or good or judgement..just do your best!!


A big thanks to KD for suggesting this challenge!! If you have an idea for a challenge please let me know!!
