Thanks! Somebody said, "If you want to make time stand still, go on a diet". Of course, we're not supposed to think of this as a diet, but whatever to call it, I'm generally working towards a certain interim goal before which it feels intolerably SLOW. Inch by inch, we walk a mile. That's what it feels like.

Hello, all

Jumping back in after years away. "Officially", I'm following Dr Jason Fung's LCHF + IF, but not as rigorously as I need to. Started looking for a support group this afternoon, and the search reminded me that I used to be a member here, once upon a time.

If I maintain the LCHF, I find the OMAD IF is not difficult to do. Unfortunately, I haven't been very good at maintaining it. My son, who lives with me, disapproves of eliminating whole food groups from my diet, but was surprisingly positive about fasting. Who knew?

First mini-goal is 230, if I understand the guidelines correctly. I dipped below that level, briefly, last week, but had a rough weekend and blew it. <sigh> Back in the saddle again...

Hello MamaKenna ! Welcome.

Too funny about your son thinking IF is ok.... I like OMAD, and do it periodically. Very useful.

Putting you in. Fix your numbers whenever. Meet your goal at your speed.

Thanks for the welcome. I guess, because fasting is Biblical. My health coach (courtesy of Liberty Healthshare) doesn't like low carb, but gets positively spastic about fasting. It's effective, though, and about the only thing I've tried that is. I really want to get below 150lb ASAP, because then the health coach -- and the extra charges -- go away. At that point, I reserve the right to decide what my stopping point should be.

Love your go-go-go attitude !!!!

Fasting has its place. Dr Atkins talks about his fat fasts, where eating is a fat loaded snack every few hours, and adds up to about 600 cals a day. I can only tell you he cautions this should be done on a limited basis. Dr FUng has other opinions on this and is very detailed on his utube videos.

Happy fasting!!!
