Oh yes, I didn't see the video untill ambeast uploaded. 16 hours fasting comes under intermittent fastingOk, but to everyone laughing about Amber's 8 hour fast, it is (or would be, if she followed through) 8 hours before bed then another 8 while she slept, so it would be a 16 hour fast. That's not much of a fast, but people do 16 hour intermittent fasting, so it's not nothing. I'm assuming she sleeps for 8 hours because she's got nothing else to do, so why not sleep in?
For millions of people, an 8-hour fast is just another day at work. A lot of people skip lunch breaks at work, essentially going without food for 8 hours or longer (In addition to the 8 foodless hours they get while sleeping). If this is your routine, you don't even think about it as "going without food". You think of it as "getting more work done"I've never heard of an 8 hour fast in my entire life.
An eight-hour fast is called "sleeping a regular amount of time at night." Most people do "eight-hour fasts" on a daily basis. Unless our gal here has somehow discovered a way to eat while sleeping. I certainly wouldn't put it past her.she wants to fast for 8 hrs? she says "I don't recommend this"...
People who do intermittent fasting don't count the 8 hours of sleeping. You know what "sixteen hours since I last ate, slept eight of those hours," is called? Skipping breakfast. About half of the population does it.Ok, but to everyone laughing about Amber's 8 hour fast, it is (or would be, if she followed through) 8 hours before bed then another 8 while she slept, so it would be a 16 hour fast.

Amber complains about not eating for a few hours, so 8 hours is an unimaginable goal for her. For everyone else that's just getting busy at work, not having time inbetween classes, or simply having a slightly later dinner. It's evident by her lack of hobbies/interests/goals/employment record that she's not capable of occupying her mind with anything other than food or social media.I've never heard of an 8 hour fast in my entire life.
The unheard of practice of not eating between lunch and dinner.wants to compensate by not eating for the next eight hours (this is gonna go well)
Going to need a helluva lot longer breaks between lunch and dinner. Losing even two pounds in a week is not fun. At all.wants to lose 10lbs in her first week
Seriously, most people do not eat for eight hours. You can go to sleep for longer than that. Jesus, does this woman eat during her sleep, too?is successful in the "fasting situation"
She could easily go days without eating as long as she drank her precious water. However, that would take a modicum of self control and we ALL know that's just not in Hamber's wheelhouse.It's a stupid idea to fast if she's struggling to resist binges while not really hungry. Yeah, add hunger to that decision, I'm sure it'll help...
Her reasoning is odd, though. The blood sugar thing, and the general fear of fasting. I was under the impression that the fatter someone is, the easier fasting was, since there's so much available fat to be converted.
8 lbs is impressive until you remember she weighs almost 600 lbs. This is the equivalent of a 150 lb woman losing 1.5 lbs in her first week of dieting.Does she not realize that her audience would want more info on her "big meal"? She's on an 1,800 calorie plan and her first meal was 300 calories, so the big meal has to have been at least 1,500 calories, but likely more. She calls it a meal, not a binge, but gives no indication of what she ate. (Eating out with Rafe maybe?)
This was filmed yesterday, and in yesterday's live stream, she said she didn't have any junk food in the house that belonged to her. So when she was fighting off a binge Tuesday night, she was fighting off the urge to send Becky out shopping?
I will be curious to see if she's really managed to lose 8 pounds in a week. Has she ever done that in the past couple of years? I'd honestly be pretty impressed. But knowing her, she will have to celebrate her major loss with food. Or not lose enough next week, so fall off the wagon and binge. It's only a matter of time.
