What Should Your First Meal Be When Intermittent Fasting?

When choosing your first meal with Intermittent Fasting, it's important to focus on high quality sources of protein, fat and fiber. Missing out on protein is specifically detrimental for a weight loss goal. Protein is the most important macronutrient when it comes to achieving a body recomposition goal (meaning, you're losing body fat, but not losing muscle mass).(1) Not to mention, protein causes the body to produce the satiety hormone called peptide YY. This helps prevent hunger and sugar cravings later in the day.


Whether your first meal is lunch or a more traditional "break-fast", each of the meals below are great options to break a fast or eat within the eating window to help support weight loss goals.
