This is a summary of my results from six months of following an alternate day fasting regimen. I'm just an average middle-aged dad-bodied schlub with limited willpower who has made serious mistakes, yet fasting has (so far) produced terrific outcomes and insights I want to share with you.

Very informative ! Thank You for sharing your story . Can I ask, How did you do with the final 30LB ? I looked at your Chanel to find out but all of your videos seem around the same time as this one ? if you managed please provide a link or point me in the right direction ? Many Thanks and Greeting from The Republic of Ireland
Ive had issues with intense sweets cravings too, turns out it can be a symptom of insulin resistance. fasting is really good as a part of a strategy to curb it, apart from cutting out refined sugar.I has really helped me. I do intermittent fasting every single day but alternate days would be awesome too.
Thank you sharing your experience and keep up the good work. I started with keto and now I am incorporating the internment fasting. I went from 210 to 180 lbs in 3 months with a 5'7" body frame, and I feel the difference already.
How much I want to tell you that I can relate with you 100%. I am in the same position and have started with intermittent fasting. Planning to move on to alternate day fasting. Hoping for the best. Thanks for sharing your experience.
If you want the science behind this read The Obesity Code by Jason Fung. I have followed the advice in this book and basically you can control how much weight you loose by how fanatically you follow it. In the beginning I strictly followed it and the weight came off. I then started eating foods I originally cut out. Two main things to remember: No sugar and fewer meals. The weight will come off.
Steve, How active are you on your fasting days? Most people talk about how to fast but don’t talk about activity and energy levels on those days. I have not tried fasting yet. I am a bit old school of eat less and move more. We are the same age and in two months I have lost 30 lbs going from 290 to 260 with just good old cardio, portion control, and healthier food choices . Oh and I cut out the alcohol. Good video with so much relatable truth. Keep the journey going strong.
I've been eating once a day lately, and I feel better, lost some weight, food tastes better, I sleep better, spend less on food (obviously), and noticed the difference between being actually hungry and just having an urge to eat.
Hope more people jump on board with fasting.
Thank you for your inspiration. God Bless you Abundantly. I hope to achieve results as beautifully as you. I’m down 11 lbs in 13 days ... losing water weight ... I began ketosis after day 2 and have remained there. I want to lose 20 lbs. I think this may be the key for me too. So I’m going to try a day on and a day off. I’m off sugar... intake only 20 carbs daily through vegetables and a few fruits of (avocado, cantaloupe, tomato). I am restricting all sugar, breads, pastas. It’s a journey! So happy you found what works for you!
Good for you but please remember that the body is not stupid, in fact quite the opposite. Although you will experience an amount of fat ketosis, unless you are doing some form of strength/weight bearing training your body will attempt to rid itself off excess muscle as much as it will fat. The body sees itself as going into lean times so to preserve its energy stores it reduces the size of the biggest energy users, ie muscles. This is the main reason programs like WW generate rebound dieters (clients for life). You need to keep reminding the body that it needs to retain the muscle and bone in order to maintain fat reduction. Otherwise you will get lost of weight loss it just won’t all be fat as the body adapts to its new environment.
We are now about 1.5 years since you made this video. I would be very interested where you are today weight wise and general health wise. I ask because I can relate to much of your story. Albeit, I'm much shorter, 5'8", I went from 210 lbs five years ago to 145 lbs in a one year period. Today I am around 160-165lbs. I am insulin resistant so it was natural for me to do a low carb diet. Also, I do notice that my metabolism has slowed and today if I carb up for a few days I will put on pounds quickly. My goal is to get back to around 155 and I too will do periodic fasting days. I notice fasting will get my body over long periods of weight stabilization.
So long term is of importance to me. I've had success over the five years now. Like you my asthma and energy level increased ever since I lost my first 20 lbs and has been consistent over this period. Naturally I am not recommending my low-carb diet to anyone. We are all different and my body being insulin resistant is not the situation everyone find them selves in. Albeit, a good indicator of my condition is most weight gain goes right to the middle section!
I see you have other videos on Keto as well.
Thanks again for sharing. With all your videos being at least one year old, inquiring minds want to know, where are you today?
That's what I was doing: Eating too much, too often, and the wrong kinds of food. I recently do the 16:8 or the 20:4 fasting protocols. But I like your practice of day on day off eating. I'm going to pray about this. Thank you for this post.
Excellent video thank you. Just like yourself I started intermittent fasting at the beginning of the year and absolutely love how it's changed my life. I fast between 16-20 hours a day only drinking water during the fast and all the things you mentioned have been experienced. The cure for on/off depression, which most people seem to suffer from these days, along with a naturally induced feeling of euphoria. I initially didn't start it for weight loss, although that's a bonus, but rather to start living healthier from within and correct modern day abuse to my bodies. This all started after watching a video about autophagy and now I preach about the benefits and merits of fasting to all who'll listen. My partner is large and I kept going on about how it is helping me, mentally, physically and so on, but never once did I suggest to start it, choosing to gently coax the idea by using myself as a modal and now we're both doing it. It's funny how upset it makes you feel on days when breaking the fast it a little earlier than planned, but the good thing about this is not to beat yourself up too much, because of how easy it is to pick up from where you left off. Great video :)
A common misconception of hunger is most people believe they are hungry when their stomachs growls, churns, etc. This is FALSE! What is actually happening is their digestive system is working on what's left over in your system. True hunger is when you get stomach pains and feel nauseous.
That was AWESOME. "My problem was not 'will-power'; my problem was not disciple; it wasn't that I wasn't exercising enough or anything like then. My problem was that I was eating too much, too often, and the wrong kind of food. Food that is toxic to the body."
Can you please write down all the authors and YouTubers you mentioned?
A amazing video you look great. Also better than the man in the flag pants. Anyway I'm on my 3rd day of fasting. I like the idea of fasting every other day. And will consider it when i finish my fast. Trying to do 10 days. Do you think i could add lemon to my water?
Hello Sir, so when you began you just ate anything you wanted and it was ok? That didn’t cause cravings on your days off? With Keto it makes sense to reduce cravings but not really only ADF. Pls explain! THANKS
Boy are you a text book case of too much sugar !! And yup , fasting is our bodies way of fixing itself and modern medicines arch enemy !! Nice work fixing your body and life with unconventional knowledge. It takes a smart cookie ( lol , no pun intended ) to do what you’ve done , congrats !!
Thanks for this video it's really helpful for me I just started to fast and I felt great. But after doing a one meal fast I worked a night shift and I started to feel dizzy is that bad could you please advise me.
Intermittent fasting has done wonders for me. I started in June of 2018. It's March 2019 and I have lost over 30 lbs. I worked out for a while but injured my shoulders and left knee. But I kept fasting and walked 3 to 5 times a week (30 minutes)...I preferred working out more but injuries kept me from doing so. I learned to enjoy walking and it's fun too.
I lost 145lbs and reversed my type-2 diabetes without medication along with my high cholesterol doing intermittent fasting and a low carb diet. That's it. No meds, no counting calories. Just intermittent fasting and lower carb choices. That's it. My spouse was also type-2 diabetic and now that is reversed as well.
Hi I just found your video I been doing intermittent fasting in the last 6 month, but due to my Raumatriod arthritis u have not started to walk, but I wearing a size 16 18 now size 14 which for me is a big deal.. I do feel better and have ton of energy I will start to walk
I can totally relate to the shakes and irritable temper when having sugar lows. I've lost my temper many times when hungry. We call it being hangry. I wonder if part of that is not only the addiction to sugar but maybe an increased level of HGH hormones being dumped into the body?
You’re awesome man, I’m doing IF. I wasn’t huge but 195 was my threshold- I’ve currently lost 27lbs with my goal being 165lbs. I plan on building muscle- I’m doing short workouts and yoga which helps my aging back- not bad for 47yrs old! Congrats
I was getting offers to have it published on many other sites, asn well as in hard print. The popularity grew, and today Astrology Onlines free horoscopes are one of the most popular places on the internet. And for that, I thank you all. It is my sincerest hope that this becomes the only astrology and horoscope web site anyone will ever need. This is a huge project, and as you might imagine, we will be "under construction" for a long time to come! Please be patient as we grow, the more time and care I put into this, the better it will be in the long run. I do work another job, but I will be making time for this sites construction and updating.
As some of you may have noticed, we now have free Horoscopes, (by popular demand), and writing these takes time each day.
How to use this site This is an extremely large site, and being so, I have endeavored to make it as easy to navigate as possible. Simply look at the row of options in the green on the left, choose the topic that most interests you, and click it! When you are in an area with more options (or "branches") you will find a text navigation bar at the bottom of the page with links to other areas pertaining to that particular topic. Also within each page is links and discussion on how to proceed. Note: The free horoscopes page is the most popular btw.
