Yes…Dr. Jason Fung and Megan Ramos are great resources and it was Dr. Fung that introduced me to fasting. My experience was that alternate day fasting worked really well. Eat dinner every night, but then on alternate days skip both breakfast and lunch. On the eating days, you maintain a 10-12 hour eating window, while on the fasting days you're essentially doing OMAD. That really helped @lisaaase and me. Here's the blog post I did about our experience: http://social-media-university-global.org/2020/02/our-10-week-alternate-daily-fasting-experience/

I think this could make a big difference. Your body is smart, and if it senses consistent nutrient deprivation it can slow down metabolism to prevent starvation. So shaking it up with this alternate daily fast makes a lot of sense.

Let us know how it goes for you!

Hi Lee – Thanks for your great advice and encouragement. I figured out a new fasting schedule to try; and it's quite similar to yours, ie fast every other day, skip all breakfasts and eat lunch and dinner four days a week. This should shake things up. Regarding how smart our bodies are — One of the most amazing ideas I've come across in my journey to learn about functional medicine and food as medicine was the importance of detoxing in order to lose fat. Toxins are stored in our bodies in our fat. This particular researcher said our bodies are so smart they won't let us burn fat and release toxins that can harm us, thus it's necessary to get rid of the toxins in order to lose fat. I have no idea if this is true, but it's pretty amazing if it is. All of you on this thread really inspire me! Thanks.
