The last time this happened, the doctor ended up steadily reducing my dosage and eliminating it over about an 8 month period. Wish me luck!
1. After 3 days total fasting the fat burn of young healthy weight men rose from 5.1 g/h to 5.7 g/h while their metabolic rate fell from 73.5 kcal/h to 67.8 kcal/h. Carbohydrate utilisation fell from 3.1 to 1.5 g/h reflecting a shift from carbohydrate to fat as fuel.
2. Obese women dieting using VLC diet showed a reduction in fat oxidation from 2.0 to 1.2 g/h while resting energy expenditure fell from 1246 to 1076 kcal/day. Carbohydrate oxidation increased from 5.0 to 6.3 g/h. Values are before / after a 13 kg weight loss / 10 kg fat loss.

I know it's not super fancy like other online blogging systems, but it's quite a nice little addon and easy to use for people who are accustomed to using the forums.
Do let me know if you find any bugs etc. Yes, I know sometimes the blue bar on the left doesn't have anything in it, that's just...
