Who have tried intermittent fasting?

For those of you who have tried intermittent fasting, what have been the effects?





Jan 28, 2022


Personally, I have been fasting since I was 9 years old…to this day. I abstain from eating and drinking from 5:30 a.m. (this can vary by a few minutes) to 7:00 p.m. for 30 days. The result is amazing! We see ourselves looking a few years younger! And at the same time, we feel much better in general. Headaches.. stomach problems and others…

At first, it is never easy. And for a novice, it is preferable to adopt a bearable rhythm for the body which is not used to it.

Specialists even suggest that fasting allows the regeneration of certain body cells…but I wouldn't go any further. You can do more research on that.

I speak as a person who has fasted a lot and at the end of each month of fasting, I see myself as "new". I find my pretty features of young girls. Besides, people around me are often mistaken about my age. I am often given 5 years or 6 years less :)

Well, this is just my experience of fasting. There are many benefits that are known now but still need to be researched.

If you would like more information, please let me know.

For several years now I have been fasting every day, taking only one meal in the evening. Nothing in the morning, not even a coffee, or fruit juice, nothing at lunch either, sometimes a glass of water, and in the evening after 24 hours of fasting, I have a light meal. Every morning I go to work on foot, running 5 km and in the evening I return home on foot, always the same 5 km. For 1.78 I have 60 kg. I still have a lot of energy, I sleep 3 to 4 hours a night. I work a lot almost 10 hours a day nonstop. For years I haven't taken a single medicine, not even a pill. I have no joint pain, good memory, good reflexes.

One of the most curious effects is that I have to eat much less than before.

I imagine things go like this:

like most people in rich countries, I have been accustomed to eating often, abundantly, when I am hungry.

my body would have become accustomed to the permanent availability of food, drawing only when necessary from the digestive tract, without taking everything.

as of course at one time such a diet makes you fat, I had to start intermittent fasting, like skipping meals, or every other day (like Young born)

However, the more I lost weight, the more difficult it was to lose weight, and the more I had to restrict myself. Fans of unique fasting know a similar phenomenon called the yo-yo effect: you regain lost weight even faster than you gained it the first time.

So I imagine that the body has become accustomed to actually taking whatever it needs, as it happens. Digestion has therefore become much more efficient, contenting itself with a much more frugal diet. People in poor countries would be natively in this mode, which allows them to live on a much-reduced diet.

I do not know of any medical or scientific confirmation of the previous point. However, I have a piece of advice from my doctor: avoid large meals, because they distend the stomach. And a distended stomach will cry out for something to fill it. Avoiding large meals, therefore, reduces hunger.
