Fat adapted

When I think of all the meals I ate when I was dieting that I really didn’t want to eat but did because I was told I would “slow down my metabolism if I didn’t eat 6 times a day”…it pisses me off. It’s 2:30pm and I am not interested yet in having my first meal. IF makes it so easy to keep off the 45 pounds I have lost. I am thinking maybe I can lose a bit more. No question, just validation for the method. Thanks!
