New to this forum and new to this way of life. In my never ending quest for weight loss and growing older healthier, I've stumbled across the different fasting approaches and was intrigued - especially after reading up on some of the research reporting on the health benefits.
At the ripe age of 51, I've become acutely aware of the fact that I need to think about my health more serious than I have during my younger years, and I just loved what I read about the results of fasting.
So, January 3rd, I started with the idea of doing 16:8. That evolved in to doing a combination of 16:8 and 5:2 for the last two weeks. The results are great, but (at this point), I would love to see if I can accelerate fat loss a little bit - given that I have about 40 - 50 lbs to lose, and need that initial motivation. So, I've decided to do EOD fasting for a week or two and see how it suits me.
Posting on here for support and to keep track of progress.
