Heard alot of hype about IF, is it really that good?
I always train about 4pm so my eating window would be like 3-9pm?

Started a few weeks ago. Essentially I cut out Breakfast. This has cut out 3-400 calories a day which does make cutting easier. I'm also pretty busy in the morning so I don't really notice being hungry until right before lunch."Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor."

burning more calories than you take in - rule 1.
Eating enough protein to heal your body under harder training and to aid the immune system .5-1g per LB of LBM - 2
Eating enough fat for a substrate to synthesize hormones - 3
Exercise will increase number of mitochondria in cells and will also cause your body to use fat more efficiently. - some cardio is good.
I would stay away from fructose, it converts to BF and liver glycogen as part of it's chemical process, even if that is burned as part of your deficit.
I would stay away from anything that makes you unmotivated. For some people it's a meal with a huge amount of fat or carbs.
IF helps some people satisfy their appetite. However a more steady stream of amino acids available to your muscles is better for strength training (get on pubmed) and if you are training longer sessions or double sessions, or for sports devided carb intake to smaller meals will probably be a much better idea.Mirin'triceps peak?

I enjoy a morning breakfast when it's convenient (usually when I'm staying away from home), but I can't imagine going back towards the limiting dependence that you describe yourself as having.

I think besides that, besides the fact that it helps with satiety (as you're consuming a huge meal at a planned time), it allows you to further increase your calorie deficit while keeping it managable.
For example, if you're maintenance is 3000 calories a day and are used to eating 3 meals a day, that'd come out to 1000cal/meal (assuming meals are calorically equal). To cut then on 2100 calories for example over three meals would push each meal down to 700~…a pretty noticeable downsize. With IF, not only can you consume 2100 calories in one huge, satisfying meal, but you can go further and cut it down to let's say one 1800 calorie meal--a meal that, if planned smartly, can still be completely filling. Just make sure to hit your protons.
There's also a lot of people arguing about the benefits of chronically low insulin levels. But that's not what we're here to discuss.
