    Although the responses at the end from the medical profession are typical...

    “But I think the most sensible way forward would be to synthesize this effect with drugs. I am not sure fasting is the best idea. People are better eating on a regular basis.”

    Seriously? instead of not eating take some pills because that will be better for you..

    You really couldn't make this stuff up.

    Yep, it's pathetic really. I've been watching a few metabolism related lectures online lately and while they're fascinating, all of the research is aimed at finding drug targets in metabolic pathways. It's hard not to scream at the screen - keto, keto, keto - fasting, fasting, fasting :banghead:

    New reasons to fast just keep cropping up don't they. I'm trying hard to fully embed it in my life now. Miss breakfast most days. managed 36 hours at the weekend with just 300-400 calories of low carb snacks.
