The fact still remains that one can lose weight by eating within four to six hours of eating window. You can begin your day with a big glass of black coffee then keep drinking lemon water, plain water and green tea till your eating window opens. Eat to your heart full during your window which can be two or three small meals or one big meal. That would stop you from consuming extra calories. Yes, you can do it. Include all your favorite foods in your diet if you wish to go slow and carry on long forever.
