I would like to ask a question please - on a fast day i have factored in a small cappochino (my adiction at work - 140 cals) will this disrupt my fast - the remainder of the cals i save for my evening soup and piece of fruit.

He said he skips lunch on normal days too. Grazing keeps your blood sugar high so your body is constantly exposed to insulin which is one of the factors in developing type 2 diabetes. The fasting is intended to reduce the blood sugar for long enough to let your insulin drop. I think there is a good bit in the book about this. Anyway - the gaps between food are really important and 12 hour gaps seem to be good

Snacking, unless on very low carb snacks, is likely to result in constant insulin release to deal with the sugar being absorbed from the snacks, in which case the body is unable to release the fat to be burned so it would hamper weight loss. Even low carb snacks may not be ideal but carrot and corn are both high in carbs as vegetables go so if you must snack maybe turn to celery!
