    Awesome on the weightloss.

    So true about eating nothing vs eating a little. That's the whole point of fasting and what so many people don't seem to understand. Eating nothing, makes controlling hunger easy. Eating a little, makes controlling hunger very difficult.

    Glad this thread has helped!

    I’ve lost 10 pounds so far. My goal is 30 more to get me to 200.

    Down to 223 from 240-245. I don’t feel deprived. I did find myself looking over the food offerings on grub hub last night.

    I have generally eating four meals a week sometimes less, as to those meals, other than a couple of cheat days, I have been eating Keto/low carb.

    The good is it is working; the good/bad is that by eating every second or third day my digestive system revolts; the bad-quite unpleasant; the good-I-am-likely passing a lot of those calories before my body can absorb them.

    I have lost 40 pounds in the past 49 days. I hope to keep up this pace and lose another 28 pounds by the end of the year.

    I do about 15 hours (give or take an hour) fasting 80% of the time as just my normal not even trying. 6pm eat dinner and around 9am for breakfast.

    I am not much of a snacker worse case I eat a small apple at 8pm.

    I'm sorry, but that does not compute. It takes 3500 calories to equal one pound of fat. A typical adult male takes in 3000 to 4000 calories a day. If you are a super high exerciser, a little more.
    Taking in zero calories in one day CANNOT account for a loss of five or six pounds.

    I’m not a nutritionist. I’m simply reporting what my (decent) bathroom scale indicated. I’ve done this twice, on occasions that were maybe a month apart. 6 lbs the first time, 5 lbs the second time.

    If you don’t believe me that’s your prerogative. I have no reason to lie about it, and I am not.

    Down 50lb so far. My blood pressure and sugar are stellar. Last time I was tested my A1C was in the normal range (5.1).

    Got another 20lb to reach what I consider my ideal body weight (22 BMI). My weight loss has slowed down so unless I change something (eat less desserts), this is probably going to take about as long as the first 50lb took (6 months).
