I’ve always heard good things about intermittent fasting for the purposes of weight loss and general health.  I’ve always found it really hard to keep track of when I should be eating or fasting.

However, tonight I just found that there is now “an app for that!”  — Meet “Zero” : https://medium.com/@kevinrose/introducing-zero-a-new-app-to-help-you-fast-209935e8245d#.oym5gfu5o

Starting tomorrow, I’m going to give this a try for the rest of the week.  I’ll be posting my weight measurements on this site soon.

Here are some good videos if you are interested in intermittent fasting:

Valter Longo, Ph.D. on Fasting-Mimicking Diet & Fasting for Longevity, Cancer & Multiple Sclerosis

Dr. Satchin Panda on Time-Restricted Feeding and Its Effects on Obesity, Muscle Mass & Heart Health

Ruth Patterson, Ph.D. on Time-Restricted Eating in Humans & Breast Cancer Prevention

Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss w/ Jason Fung, MD

Another really good blog about Intermittent Fasting Can be found here.  It comes with a really good/concise intro to Intermittent Fasting, as well as some suggested meals to get you started!



*** Update: December 31, 2016:  Only after a few intermittent fasting occasions, I’ve lost approximately 11LBS — however, this is most likely water weight.   I’ll be posting more updates ASAP.   My goal is to do 7-days straight of intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eatingand fasting. It does not say anything about which foods to eat, but rather when you should eat them. There are several different intermittent fasting methods, all of which split the day or week into eating periods and fasting periods. — In addition to the video links above, this is a good link to get started:  http://dailyburn.com/life/health/intermittent-fasting-methods/
