    I too tried this 8PM to Noon the next day. No problem and I did not overeat for lunch. Going to see how far I can go, thanks Buzz. I little extra reading on the subject.
    From the article and my comments below the quote:

    A few months after Brown started intermittent fasting, he had a routine visit with his doctor. Without seemingly dieting, Brown had dropped 10 pounds, and along the way, his lipid and insulin levels also had dramatically improved.
    This is a very, very common thing you hear from people who have had issues with insulin levels. They dramatically improve without having to go on a special diet.

    Although the data looks promising for shedding pounds and improving metabolic health, intermittent fasting doesn’t perform any better than other dietary restriction plans that result in weight loss, such as balanced diets or the ketogenic diet, she said.
    I can't disagree with someone who is an expert in the field and I'm nowhere close to being one. But I will say this, it's been the easiest and most natural transition to losing weight and actually WANTING to keep doing it than anything I've done before. However, like I said earlier in the thread, if it works keep doing it. If not, find something else that does.

    “Intermittent fasting is not a diet. … It really is a lifestyle intervention,” he said. “It’s a lot easier to tell people just put down your fork for a few hours and then have your biscuits and gravy, rather than tell them, I want you to start eating only broccoli.”
    This is very true for me. I just don't feel like I'm on a diet and maybe that's half the battle.

    I haven't begun intermittent fasting at this point and only have attempted to understand the benefits other than weight loss which is not a focus for me. The top level understanding that I am seeing in the research from Dr. Valter Longo and at USC is that intermittent fasting or fasting mimicking effects mitochondrial repair within the cell itself and is an anti-aging longevity strategy. One comment I heard recently was diet and exercise aided mitochondrial repair but not to the degree of intermittent fasting. I have a lot more to learn on the topic.

    I to have a lot more to learn about the topic. From what I've read health science is really just now diving into the benefits of intermittent fasting. I don't think it's been at the forefront of health studies over the years like other forms of dieting have. However, whether for religious or health reasons or both. The act of fasting has been practiced for thousands of years by a lot of societies and cultures.

    Two intermittent fasting days down. I like this, hopefully I can lose 10-15 pounds in a reasonable time.

    I’ll finish my 7th fasting cycle at noon today. I’m even more encouraged to stay with this after reading more on the subject. I’m obviously eating less, and still eating healthy. I’m definitely hungry at noon every day but I’m not famished and not eating a bigger lunch. Last night I finished dinner before 6 PM and haven’t eaten since.

    It it may be my imagination but my mind feels sharper and I’m more alert. I wish I’d have known about intermittent fasting years ago.

    It's not. That is one of the most common improvements noticed by people who fast.

    How much are you eating in that time period if you can go from 7 pm to noon without eating?

    Do you notice yourself drinking more during that time period at all?

    Added thought about the ongoing discussion on obesity is the incredible increase of sugar in our diets from the 1800's to the present.

    It's a remarkably straight line, increasing steadily from 6.3 pounds per person per year in 1822 to a maximum of 107.7 lb/person/year in 1999. Wrap your brain around this: in 1822, we ate the amount of added sugar in one 12 ounce can of soda every five days, while today we eat that much sugar every seven hours.
    We don't need to look much farther in the discussion of obesity than to think about how ubiquitous sugar has become in hundreds of products on grocery shelves and how easily addictive it becomes from our first taste of baby food. I have seen it labeled as the number one health risk in the population.

    Wrapping up my third 16-8 fasting day in about 10 minutes. I could eat obviously, but I am not famished. I believe this is something that I can stick with, and hopefully realize some good health benefits.

    I know you didn't ask me, but I'll give you my experience with it.

    You would think by fasting that many hours that when you did eat you would be tempted to over eat and "make up for" the 16 hours of fasting. But that isn't the case. Most people find that it is very, very hard to actually eat that much food within an 8 hour window. Trust me, I tried. The crazy thing you find is you actually eat less. I know it doesn't follow common logic. But for me it has been the case and for many others who do the 16-8 method it is very common to actually eat less. Regarding the water, yes, it is important to keep hydrated during the fasting hours. Not necessarily to subside the hunger pains, but so your body will function like it should.

    I’m not drinking more. I drink water and black decaf at work, unsweetened tea if I go out. I do drink a lot.

    My wife packs my lunch everyday so I’m eating the same amount there. A turkey or chicken wrap with lettuce,tomato, onion, cheese, and tobacco. A box of raisins, some pecans, a pear, and some blueberries are my lunch four days a week. I don’t have time to eat until I get home then it’s whatever Cyndi fixes. Four of seven days it’ll be a big salad with chicken or shrimp.

    I think the coffee helps helps keep me from being hungry.

    Tobacco on a sandwich; is that a Milan thing? No wonder this diet works if you are going to chew then spit.
