    Fasting

    Has anyone ever tried this as a dieting tool and if so how about the results?

    Someone told me last week that they fast every Sunday to help maintain a healthy weight. I have trouble maintaining a healthy weight so I'm giving it a try today.

    Sounds pretty toturous. Why don't you have a day or two a week where you just eat fruit and veg and drink only water?

    From careful observations, it seems to me that modern Westerners spend far to much time concerned {and manipulating} their state of well being - instead of just being well.

    I am slowly losing weight ( intentionally ) - no sarcastic comments from E.G. please- Alternate days of fruit and water / normal meals - it works !

    Call me old-fashioned, but the "varied diet and exercise regularly" regime has worked well for me for over 40 years.

    Seriously, am I the only one who obsesses over things that are forbidden?

    To answer the original question, I know someone who fasts regularly for weight control. Really often...like once or twice a week. It doesn't make sense to me because it seems it would slow her metabolism down, but she is very healthy and looks great.
