Random musings of a fast dieter
Will wait to get my thyroid checked again as it has been sub-clinical for years now, as I know from previous informative posts by you that thyroid function slows after fewer hours than the 16 hour fasting time, so not too sure if this would be a viable permanent alternative for me.
Thanks for update.
I'd been wondering what 16:8 is and having it explained so clearly is very helpful - and makes it seem eminently do-able.
Do you know if there's any info out there about other health benefits of doing 16.8 v 5:2? ie: Does a daily 16 hour fast with normal or slightly reduced calorie intake have the same impact on health indicators as 2 days of 500 cals?
I could swear I've seen something on probably more than one thread but can't find it now. Bit reluctant to start another thread though, if it's already out there.
And as for feeling guilty about being a 5:2 mod doing 16:8, for heaven's sake, don't! You do a great job, and experimentation is what it's all about, surely.

@Wolfie OH is half Swedish so we have a share in the family summer house on an island in the Stockholm archipelago.
Gives me hope for my next holiday as I may try 16:8 I'm not bothered not losing weight but would prefer not to gain either.
But as I did on my last hop in may I won't get on scales on my return
because I ALWAYS. gain when I look at the plane Lol
My oedema plays havoc but since I began this WOL I know I can repair any damage quickly enough Sue.
