I also make alterations to my daily food intake. For example, I don't have set times for meals. Some days I fast until noon, some days I eat early. Some days I eat a lot of food, some days not so much.

To me, that's not the same thing as changing eating plans.

I agree. I tend to have a 5 hour afternoon window, but sometimes I eat a big breakfast and then skip lunch.

Ditto. Since I do some business travel, I've gotten in the habit of having breakfast at the hotel, where I can order a LCHF ration, usually eggs with bacon, sausage or both. This protects me from the lunches that are usually served which are notoriously not LC. I started doing this when they served us a big serving dish of lasagna in the meeting room That taught me. This way, I can skip lunch and I'm on a breakfast dinner schedule for my usual two meals with ample time between. Being fat adapted enables flexibility without cravings.

If you're not into mouse studies, feel free to skip this one.

Up to sixteen weeks of intermittent fasting without otherwise having to count calories helps fight obesity and other metabolic disorders. Such fasting already shows benefits after only six weeks. This is according to a study by Kyoung-Han Kim and Yun Hye Kim in the journal Cell Research which is published by Springer Nature. Intermittent fasting in mice helped to kick-start the animals' metabolism and to burn fat by generating body heat. The research team was led by Hoon-Ki Sung of The Hospital for Sick Children in Ontario, Canada.

I like seeing Canadians involved. It's not just about dieticians going after low carb physicians here, you know.

They wanted to minimize spontaneous decrease in calories for the animals, so they fasted them every third day instead of every second day, to give them more time to make up for the deficit. It would be interesting to see this up against the more standard every other day fasting that's usually done in IF studies for mice.

Dr. Fung has a new article on Medium:

Fibre  the anti-nutrient

I've been using whole wheat white flour for almost all baking for my mother/brother as the alternative is my brother bringing home junk.

I see all these recipes for "healthy" muffins or whatever, with maybe a reduction in oil in favor of applesauce, but usually with refined white flour, so less fiber, less nutrition. No excuse for this, imo.

The new podcast is now available, the musical interludes still with us.

Inspiring story of a diabetic who had had WLS, still obese. Both her mother and grandmother died at 41, finally used fasting and LCHF to not go down that road.
