We're glad you joined us!
I'm on a combined low-carb / Primal lifestyle ... but I don't follow it "strictly", either. I think most people in either half of that are accustomed to modifying for their own unique metabolisms. At least some of us are listening to our bodies rather than the "expert advice" we've been laboring under for so long.
I've also recently started a bit of IF ... mostly in an attempt to break a stall. Like you said, I actually feel better on the days I'm not eating. Go figure! So far, I'm satisfied with it ... although it hasn't started to produce results yet. If things don't change soon, I may have to just lengthen the duration! I'm getting annoyed with it now. lol
Good luck to you, and congrats for choosing to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
