In 2012 I lost 50 pounds following the eating patterns in the first version of this book. It took a few weeks for my body to adjust to the pattern - I lost a pound a week at first. After I adjusted, I lost a steady, painless 2 pounds/week all the way to goal.
Not bad for a post-menopausal, low exercise, female.
In fact, quite healthy. I experienced several life-enhancing non-scale victories on this journey. For example: I achieved very stable and consistently high energy levels. And arthritis from an injury decades ago - that was crippling my right hand - just went away.
By adjusting my Down Day/Up Day calories I have maintained the weight loss effortlessly. And pleasurably. DH and I love to cruise. The last three cruises I ate what I wanted and returned weighing - lol - exactly what I weighed when I left.
During 2012, a lot of scientific studies about intermittent fasting were published. By reading the first version of this book, and many studies, I learned a tremendous amount about how my body, health, and weight all work together. I bought the new version of this book because this is a life style I intend to follow for the rest of my life...and I want to learn more and more about it.
