    Anyone trying it?
    How'd you go?

    5 days 1200cals (or 1500)
    2 days 400 - 500cals

    I'm trying the 'fasting day' today.
    So far, 115cals spent.
    This is hard going!

    No I'm breast feeding so don't think it would work

    It doesn't interest me at all. I don't see how it's healthy. 1200cals is the minimum for daily intake for the body to function well. So doing that 7 days a week would be better than getting your body to starve itself 2 days a week. It will anticipate this and store energy. Good luck with it though.

    Yes, I do this. Some days are harder than others. Sometimes it is really easy. There is plenty of science behind it and for people like me, where the traditional weight loss advice does not work, it can be great.

    I like that there is a lot of research behind this. I'm not a fad dieter but, the study on reducing the occurrence of cell abnormalities through the practice of intermittent 'fasting' is pretty wicked.

    Oh and; so far, I've used 280cals.
    4 x almonds
    3 x slices of a mandarin
    80g lettuce leaves with 1 can light tuna
    1 coffee (no sugar) and skim milk
    And craploads of hot water.

    For guys it's easier IMO.
    They get 600cals!

    Yep, and the study on the delay of dementia through fasting. Weight loss is a bonus for me as the health benefits that have come out of the studies are pretty awesome.

    I don't have the book on me as I lent it out.

    The doco was great. It is called Eat, Fast and Live longer by BBC Horizon, if you can get a hold of it.

    There are quiet a few studies, mostly abstracts.
