I have been intermittent fasting for over 8 years now and because of that lifestyle change I dropped around 30 lbs and have maintained the same weight, within a few pounds, for that time. Always fought weight, since puberty, some due to the gene pool I was swimming in. Like many of us yo yo diet and weight loss and gain, Atkins, low fat on and on. Fasting is the only way I have been able to maintain my weight at a time (69 years old) that many of my peers are gaining weight. I also believe the fasting has had a positive impact on my overall health with all my vitals In proper range. I also gave up alcohol 5 years ago when I retired. Alcohol can be insidious, especially in early retirement. I saw so many guys moving 5 o’clock earlier and earlier and I was slowly drifting from a glass of wine or beer to a lot more. It was personal for me and I never question others in their choices nor am I suggesting any of this as being “right”. It just works for me YMMV.
