My name is Tina, I am type 2 diabetic, and almost 1 year recovered from open-heart surgery. I want to lose weight, bottom line and I have about 100 pounds to lose.
I want to live the rest of my life, happy and healthy and at a proper weight.
I am learning all I can about fasting, to promote weight loss and hopefully get healthy. I was reading some of the information on the site today and I am very interested in maybe doing the 16:8. I dabbled in IF before but I am sure I was not doing it correctly. I didn't take the time to research and read like I am doing this time around. I assumed that fasting meant not eating at all. When I read on your site that on fasting days calories were consumed but at a very caloric deficient level, it made sense. When I did it before I didn't reduce my calories by much, just reduced my eating window. Looking forward to being productive in here.
