    HI Zak, I’ve done 16/8 IF for a long time, and for some months last year was alternating that with 20/4 (one meal a day!).

    I don’t quite get what you mean by breaking the fast. Do you only start eating at 5 PM? What’s your schedule?

    And speaking of meditation/reading – I’ve been a member of this channel since it started in September and so far, except for one member (Lucy Fleetwood, 16 years a Tibetan Buddhist) I can’t find anyone else interested in practice. Iain rarely talks about it and seems to have quite a limited knowledge of it – but it seems to me, if this understanding of different modes of attention is to have any real impact on the world at all, it’s going to be through practice, not through intellectual (whether LH OR RH) knowledge.

    I’ll get to your other comment in a moment.
