WOE: Healthy Low Carb

So, I take 850mg of metformin 2x day (mostly for PCOS not so much diabetes) but I was wanting to try the whole fasting thing and doing one meal a day. I wonder if anyone has done this while being on metformin?
Thanks in advance!

I take Metformin, and while I don't usually fast more than 16:8, I am able to take it without food and not have a problem with it. The pharmacist told me that the reason they say to take it with food is to prevent stomach problems. I also think you could probably skip one pill on the day you want to do OMAD, but I'm supposed to say "check with your doctor."

I have been doing Dr. Fung .Since Sept 4th.
Worked up and did my first 7 days. But I fast with just water. tea.
I just did my 1st 7th day fast and ate>and then Restart and did 1 day fast. Was going to do my 2nd. day today. And just Blew it all. First time too.
So have to fast next 3 days for sure.
I also walk,jog and some weights. I also detox{Sanua.
I watch cals too.

So after this bad ,bad day. Must now stay off scale and redo and stay with it.
Boy Do n't know why I fell this bad. I'm really strong and work my butt off to get to goals.
But One day.
Stay off scale too until3-4-days and see if i got back on track.
