Intermittent Fasting



Recommended Posts

More research obviously needs to be done on this type of diet modification, but the early results definitely look promising. My interest lies in the health benefits more than anything else. I also like what Dr. Fung says in the book about learning your hunger signals better when you fast for longer periods.

I see my endocrinologist next month for a check up and I can't wait to see where my A1C level is at. I am prepared to make any modifications that are necessary to my diet and exercise to keep my A1C at non-diabetic levels without medication. I have had great BG readings for the most part, but I am not checking 24/7 so I could be missing some spikes and be unaware. IF could be another tool to help keep insulin and bg in check.

Oh boy....well, that was interesting.

Thank you all for posting your links. Gives me more to read up on (even though I’m a full supporter of IF-as I have done it and seen pretty awesome results from it). I’m always up for more info to better my health.

This (IF) applied to changing the gut "chemistry" was the subject of three one-hour science/medicine specials over three weeks (in Australia). Its final part was today.

There is a great body of supportive evidence.

I'll post some links in the next 24-36 hours.

That special sounds very interesting. Do you know the name of it? I wonder if it is possible to view it online? Thank you for posting about it.

I mentioned YESTERDAY (Saturday 28th Oct) that I had been watching a show about modern gut science.

Well, TODAY (Sunday 29th Oct), I am up early watching the FINAL of the under 17 (male) FOOTBALL World Cup on TV and I did a search for the URLs for those programs.

Here they are:

1. Catalyst Science Show

The Gut Revolution - Part 1 - Melissa’s Story

http://iview.abc.net.au/programs/catalyst/SC1602H010S00

Is your mood influencing your gastrointestinal health or is it the other way around? Can a nutritional intervention provide help to sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome where modern medicine has little to offer?

2. Catalyst Science Show

The Gut Revolution - Part 2 - Garry’s Story

http://iview.abc.net.au/programs/catalyst/SC1602H011S00

Garry has tried to lose weight, but could his gut bacteria be keeping him fat? Nutrition scientist Dr Joanna McMillan explores controversial science suggesting gut bacteria might be affecting our appetites and mood. This episode also explores types of intermittent fasting [IF] that have tested positive benefits.

I just finished watching the one about Gary and the intermittent fasting. It wasn't captioned, but I watched online. They are very good. It was interesting to learn that some of our gut microbes flourish during fasting periods and feed off of the gut secretions when our intestines are empty.

They are captioned. Unless you're hard of hearing, you won't need the captions. Except for the bogans and rednecks, we speak great English in this country.

It was captioned. You maybe set the CC [closed captions] button to off.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
