My last post about my intermittent fasting "it's not a diet" weight loss journey was 2 months ago. It's fair to say I dropped the ball there! I had been doing mainly 5:2 (5 days fasting with 800 calories-ish, 2 normal days, and on average 14 hours fasting overnight) for 8 weeks, and had lost … Continue reading Intermittent fasting: 10 weeks to Healthy
