First-time intermittent fasters often find the first 10 days of a time-restricted feeding or alternate day fasting regimen to be the toughest. According to Dr. Krista Varady, it typically takes people an average of five fast days to become accustomed psychologically and in terms of experiencing normal energy levels during fast days. However, after the first 10 days most individuals can adhere to their fast days or fasting windows and exercise as easily while fasted as fed.
