I've found another website about variations on IE, 5:2 etc. Look for iFasters.com. You can download a free booklet, and there's also a fasting app for smart phones. It's done by a scientist called Juliette Morris, and refers to several research paper.

The link to that video Eat Fast and Live Longer won't work. It says it has expired on the PBS site. I was able to find it and watch it. Here's the link I found:

This site has the 101 year old man running the marathon and looks at different types of fasts and how they help you.

Sorry I did not think of that.

I can't wait for weigh in on Friday. Gee I hope I've dropped some as have been trying very hard this week with exercise and diet.

My new weekly diet regime is 2 x 20 hour fasts, 3 x 16 hour fasts, and no fasts for 2 days. If I increase my ST and walk a bit more I shall see results. I am determined to see results!

Good luck to all who are 'having a go' and making the effort to become healthy, fit, and thinner. Good luck Kim on your W5F1.

W3F1 over for you now Susie and W4F1 over for me. I hope the scales show a bit of downward progress soon. I must drop as I'm also in the 5% challenge for 8 weeks and have pledged weight loss there as part of the challenge.

Good luck to us and good luck to all ESE Team members. emoticon

Is a great resource, he tried different ways to fast, 12 - 16 - 24 hours fast with his results...different strokes for different folks so try different ones and see what works best for you

Hi, this will be a busy week, so I am going to try and organise my self today! (ha ....ha!) I am going to start the diet by taking one day off a week and see how I go. I had thought I would (for example) start on a Tuesday and fast from 14.00hh to 14.00hh on Wednesday in the hope that it will make it bearable:) What do you think? Any advice will be gratefully received.emoticon

Hi and thanks for the welcome. The best way to see the story on the 101 year old marathon runner, is to google just that, as there is a lot about him, but the videos all seem to be linked to the BBC, which if you are outside the UK, you won't be able to access. Have a great day. I will be back soon to let you know how I get on with the If program. Susieemoticon

Welcome! There are a few of us who have been posting regularly. I hope that you find IF works well for you. Let us know how it is going. I do the the Fast 5 version and really like it. I've just been dabbling but am starting to do it more regularly and I am seeing more inches come off than weight. I was able to break through an 18 month plateau though. Can you share the name or story of the man you watched do the marathon?

OK! I heard about the diet yesterday after watching a 101 year old do the London marathon. I did a bit of reading last night and did an SP search this morning and here I am. Lots of reading to do and then i will start the fast next week when I know a little more. Fingers crossed!emoticon

It looks like no one has given you an answer so I will start. There are different types of fasts (we all naturally fast for about 8 to 10 hours when we sleep overnight hence the first meal of the day being called, 'break fast') for different purposes. For weight loss most fasts that I have read about follow either a 16 to 18 hour fast or a 24 hour fast. I follow the later, specifically EatStopEat (learn more at www.eatstopeat.com). During your fast you consume little to no calories. I drink black coffee, water, diet soda and I chew sugar free gum. So I probably consume 25 to 50 calories during the 24 hours of fasting (supper to supper usually for me so I miss two meals and a snack).
I've heard of people not eating for days on end but I've not read of any programs specifically recommending that action.
If you are interested in fasting buy EatStopEat. Read some of the blogs out there. Try going without eating for 16 hours or 24 hours the first time. I recommend that you chose a day when you will be busy but also not around a lot of food. (I find it hard to sit in a long business meeting while fasting when there are snacks in plain site). Also prepare to have calorie free beverages and sugarless gum on hand. Enjoy. It is a great way to lose or maintain weight.

PS To my old SP friends - It's been a very rough journey... My beloved, healthy, athletic, tall, dark and handsome husband died in August 2012 from a very aggressive cancer... In the many months caring for him I was stressed and didn't "care" anymore, and put back on 30 pounds I had just finished losing... And then even 10 more in the first year of grief...

These are 3 great videos of Alternate Day Fasting, 1, 2 and 3
(24 hour fast - eat dinner every day)

Highly recommended as these are the most concise way to understand lots of the research.

Alternate Day Fasting Videos

Note - Eat Stop Eat "allows" 3 fasts per week - but recommends only one or two per week, to prevent burn out.
Currently I am doing MWF fasts because that helps my asthma the most, so that keeps me motivated.

I fasted yesterday - because I was sick - I just didn't want to eat...and I lost 4.4 pounds. Gotta love it...

I am posting these articles to share the info- but also so I can easily find them again to re-inspire myself.

Here are some articles on fasting:

1) Study: Periodic fasting good for health, heart
www.ksl.com/?nid=960&sid=14994155

2) Routine Periodic Fasting Is Good for Your Health, and Your Heart, Study Suggests
www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/04/1104
03090259.htm

"...Doctors found that skipping at least two meals on a regular basis led to a dramatic increase of human growth hormone (HGH), which plays a metabolic role in adults, regulating glucose and insulin within the body, "so you are burning fat cells when you fast," Horne said..."
emoticon

That's cool for me because I tend to like the breakfast to breakfast fast (more than a complete water fast all day) On a breakfast to breakfast fast I tend to lose over 2 pounds.

Some scientists, so impressed by the health benefits of fasting, do complete water fasts every other day. I think there is something to be said for not eating at all - "just don't get started eating", etc... But I know that on a regular basis it tends to make me tired and cranky.

Check it out - even if you fast once a week it can really help.
