Is there any “fasters” out there? I started fasting about 3 months ago , just for weight loss reasons. I started off small 16:8 then went up to 36 hours. I do cheat at it and enjoy cups of coffee with tons of water of course. I finally broke my plateau doing a weeks worth of 16:8 , I feel so much better and can feel that goal line!!!

    I just had an appointment with my VA dietitian and she frowns upon fasting. Says that even at my size, I could end up malnourished.

    I am of the mind though, that if I do a 16:8 or even a 36:12 and it results in busting a plateau, then to go back to sensible eating habits, who is she to tell me that it won't be a good thing?

    Between your Blog and the comments below, I think I will continue.

    I've been trying 16:8 and felt good about it, finally making small progress in weight-loss, then I've been too slack about the 16 hour fast. I need to get back to it and be more dedicated.

    I fast everynight for 14 - 16 hrs. I've only been doing this for about 2 weeks. Trusting in the process to be as healthful as I've read that it is! Best wishes!

    I am fasting daily 16:8 sometimes one meal a day around 2pm. One longer fast for 3 days last year. I want to do it again possibly in June.

    I just finished a 16 1/2 hour fast. I am diabetic and have other health challenges, but I did well. Just water and a pinch of sea salt. I follow Paul Greene, but am unable to do the length that he does.
