After I watched this video, in which this M.D. (Nephrologist) explains why “eat less, move more” diets don’t work and why intermittent fasting does, I ordered his book which I’m avidly reading.
This week, I started my own experiment with fasting and … wow, do I feel good! Most notably, my chronically swollen, painful left knee is markedly improved. Usually, I have to strap up my knee to walk Daisey and can’t do it at all when it’s rainy. This morning, I walked her half a mile without bandaging my knee first and it’s rainy!
Fasting is a powerful tool for diabetes, which thank God Dearest and I don’t have, but it also helps inflammation, blood pressure, and cholesterol, which we do have. If you’re overweight or struggling with a chronic health problem, I encourage you to look into this.
