Very interesting even if you do not plan to fast

We bought this book after we had seen the BBC production “Eat, Fast and Live Longer”. It was absolutely fascinating. In addition to the book, we would have bought a DVD of the show had it been available. Michael Mosley, M.D. explains the science behind intermittent fast...
We bought this book after we had seen the BBC production “Eat, Fast and Live Longer”. It was absolutely fascinating. In addition to the book, we would have bought a DVD of the show had it been available. Michael Mosley, M.D. explains the science behind intermittent fasting. He participates in three different fasting diets during the investigation and give us the results. He lowered his cholesterol, lowered his blood pressure and lowered his IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor), which ages us faster when it is at a high level. Oh yeah, another result was he lost some weight. He shows the link between aging and How and When we eat being as important as What we eat. He explains the beneficial affects of fasting on not only our body but on our brain’s aging. The co-author on this book gives the details of Michael’s fasting results and information on how to fast, when to fast, how to fit it into your lifestyle and more. I am in week three of the 5 days feast/2 days fast diet and have found it fairly easy. There are explanations and photos of typical 500 and 600 calorie meals. (On the fast days you are supposed to eat something.) The book is easy to read and understand and the scientific information is interesting. Another thing I liked about this book is you do not feel like you are being sold something. It is not hyper, loaded with exclamation points. I can recommend this book and wish I had learned all this information years ago.

Easier say than done

I read the book and started the diet but the fasting was really hard for me.
Maybe because I have two jobs and really long days.
After two weeks;I'm done did loose a 7 1/2 pounds but this diet it's not for me.
I felt tired,got headaches and couldn't sleep on the fast...
