Being a guy who is willing to try anything, as there haven't been any real solutions available. 8 days ago, I decided that I would almost quit eating. I had a boiled egg in the morning and cereal for lunch and dinner. Amazing results!!! I started on the 15th and have had a few bad moments when I pushed myself when I felt too good. I am retired so I can get away with things and I have a wonderful wife that takes great care of me. Yesterday I forgot to rest around noon and also had some pizza and a diet pepsi. I know, I know. It's all in my head, but I had a reaction which started with the pains we all know about and then a wave of total fatigue that just wiped me out for the rest of the day. The next morning I went back to what works for me and other than a few rough times, it has been so much better. I go to the pool 5 days a week and have eased up on my exercises. Thanks for the support.

That is interesting. I don't eat much at all during the day. Carbos totally wipe me out so I only eat them at night. I've heard so many times that we are supposed to eat regular meals but I feel much better when I don't eat until late afternoon or evening.

Strange, huh?

A couple of things I'd like to add here. These results are for the persons who post them and are not recommended by this forum or the ownership. Please follow the advice of your doctor or a registered dietitian before trying any eating plan that is not balanced and shown to be healthy. There is no research on the type of diet mentioned in this post. For more on healthy eating here are links to a couple of sites.

American Heart Association:

US Nutrition site:

and this one is GREAT! It's a menu planner by the NIH (National Institure of Health)

Hope this helps...
