    It seems like when we find a balance of everything our body changes and we have to discover a new balance.

    Well, due to the amount of meds I take, I cannot afford to skip meals, otherwise I become ill I tend to have 3 meals per day, but no snacks.
  • IF works for me. I'm still eating the calories I need, but skipping breakfast (I have coffee and that's it outside of water until lunch). I'm more alert and active and I don't have any cravings. I've lost 3.6 lbs already and I'm seeing a real difference in my clothes already. I've been doing IF for 2 weeks now.

    I've been struggling to lose weight by eating 3 meals and I've tried 3 small meals and 2 snacks. It just makes me hungry all the time. But with IF I will feel hungry once in a while, but then I will drink water and be not hungry anymore.

    This isn't for everyone. It's just what works for me. I took a resting metabolic rate test and the energy I burn is 84% from fat and 16% from carbs. That's optimal and it puts me in the best position to lose weight.
  • Wondering about the reality of fasting for altering blood sugar and insulin in the body...?! Seems like NOT eating 1 or more days of a week, keeps the body refreshed and able to better handle what comes.

    I believe that healthy eating (extra fruits & veggies) combined with fasting 1-2 days each week can really make a difference in stubborn weight plateaus.
  • For me, eating throughout the day is crucial. I get hangry very easily and need to maintain my blood sugar in order to be nice! One thing I do to make sure I'm not overeating is to try not to ever feel full. Once the headache, stomach pains, moodiness, and color come back to me...I know I've had enough (and I eat as slowly as possible).

    A spoonful of peanut butter or a granola bar on the run usually do it. Meals usually consist of a side of veggies and maybe some rice. It's easy for me in restaurants because I order from the "sides" part of the menu. I'm also a lifelong vegetarian, so that may have something to do with it. However, I've lost a ton of weight (over 45 lbs) & still eat all the time. I also never feel so full I'm sick, and I can still enjoy meals with family & friends. It works for me so I thought I'd share. :)

    This is a great article, but being almost 71 years old, it made me feel like it will take forever to lose the weight. It is coming off very slow. I need to lose at least 50 pounds. At this rate I wonder if I will ever get it off.

    See a real live dietitian to help you lose weight. All extra exercises are fun if you don't need your job or have anyone to take care of and can go and do as you please...reality bites, the writers of these articles need to find some reality !!
