good morning all............. I came across this link by accident while looking for Ideal Protein....... what is this fasting program? how does it work? I am 50 yrs old...... so not a fast metabolism.... and seems like I am carb sensitive. I presently only take in 600 cal a day or less and my weight is not moving... so HELP me if you can pass some info.......... almost desperate enough to do lapband.

I''m not an expert but 600 calories a day is really way to low unless you are doing a 5:2 or similar fast where you eat 500 calories to days a week but much more on other days.

I eat one meal a day but still get 1300 calories a day.

Please reconsider your current path unless under the care of a physician!

I agree with wvuchick. If you are eating 600 calories a day, that is the type of low calorie diet that needs medical supervision. Good luck to you!

However, if you're interested in making a change, there's lots of good information throughout this thread. We all do a different form of intermittent fasting, but the general idea is to eat within a specified eating window.

I have a slightly underactive thyroid, which I control with medication. Does anyone know what effect IF has on the thyroid?

I don't know from personal experience OR from any medical knowledge, but quite a few people on the 5:2 Facebook group I'm in have been able to decrease their medication because the diet has improved their thyroid. I don't think you're doing 5:2, but it leads me to believe other forms of IF should have a positive effect as well.

I'll let you know if I come across anything slightly more scientific on the topic!

Schmoopy - I don't know about the thyroid thing. Seems like a good idea to check with your doctor about that one.

As this thread has reached the limit of 500 posts, the time has come for some kind soul to start the new thread so that this one can be closed.
