A year ago, a week before my 40th birthday, I went on the scale and was horrified by what I saw.

This year I've learned more about nutrition and the science of metabolism than I ever have in my life.

Sticking to my eating plan, I lost 35lbs. I went off for two months and it took me another two months to lose what I'd put on, so won't be making that mistake again!

I have a long way to go before I'm of normal weight, but I'm steadily losing and my blood numbers are great!

@emacsen do you practice intermittent fasting?

re: Body/Weight/Diet 

@11backslashes I have a loose restrictive eating window of between 6-8 hours. Usually that means not eating until noon. Occasionally I'll eat a little earlier, 11am or so.

I've found that some drinks help me keep the fast longer (and I'm happy to elaborate if you want).

I did one 24 hour fast and found that extremely challenging. I've been considering it again but it's not something I think I'll do often (not like some rockstars who can IV every other day).
