Hi All, I'm not usually a fan of anything that sounds even vaguely like a fad diet but this one has me intrigued enough to give it a try. One of my daughter's vet colleagues recommended she try it as her IBS was out of control. She's been doing it for quite a short time and seen good results so far. It was first researched as a life extending regime and the weight loss came along as a pleasantly-surprising side effect. Research has suggested it improves cognitive function so staving off, or at least delaying, dementia etc and improves cell regeneration, lower BP and blood glucose and a host of other benefits. Asked the nurse lead at work if she'd heard of it, expecting to be told not to be stupid, but was surprised when she was enthusiastic and said she'd like to try it. So my little pallies I'm going to set myself up as a guinea pig and if the fibro fog improves my memory enough I'll try to report back on my progress. Thought I'd find it totally impossible as I get very grumpy if I don't eat but had my first fast day Monday and it was OK. In fact after I'd had another really crap day at work yesterday and stuffed myself silly on Chinese instead of cooking something healthy I lay in a bloated heap trying to get to sleep and found myself looking forward to the next fast day! Think I've been abducted by aliens and cloned as this is definitely out of character. xxx
