We have a small but active group of intermittent fasters and we notice that group communication and sharing of experiences have resulted in better outcome in the fasting program.
I am happy to reproduce here my message to the group today:
“Broadcast on Intermittent Fasting:
I think it’s time to reflect and see what we as a group should be looking for at the minimum.
One thing we can say with confidence is that all of us want to get rid off the excess fat.
And we know that calories from food supply energy for the body to do even minimum things. And that energy from food gets exhausted after sometime, definitely in 12 hours if we don’t eat.
After 12 hours of clean starving we still do things and body needs energy for that. This energy source is there in us, stored as excess fat. So excess fat is taken if we continue starving beyond 12 hours.
And the energy requirement and burning excess fat will get accelerated if we exercise during the period.
Of course, we need to think what the body will do after all such excess stored fat are used up.
Well, we are at the risk of our body starting to eat our muscles. Good thing is that none of us are anywhere near that stage as we have stored enough and more fat.
So getting rid of excess fat is our primary target.
And then, what if the fat is taken from the belly side first! Great no!
What if that include the ‘love handles’ that’s around the waist. Divine! as we can handle it without that handle.
When we do clean fasting for minimum of 16 hours, fat and size reduction is inevitable.
By the way, this is better way than extreme dieting. A sick look is probable in a dieting, while we tend to do it with a nice look.
To give a personal example, a friend who saw me recently, after about 4 months, told me that I have reduced in a nice way.
Do clean fasting for 16 hours, 4 to 6 days in a week. Longer the time, the better. Please try clean fasting, no black coffee, green tea or dark chocolate, just water.
Let’s start using our fat for energy.
Our ultimate goal of course is autophagy.

1. Weight loss
2. Improved glucose control
3. Reduced cholesterol
4. Reduced liver fat
5. Improved blood pressure
6. Increased endurance
7. Better sleep

12. May prevent cancer
13. Probable protection against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
14. Anti aging benefits
15. Repair of damaged cells and regeneration of new ones (autophagy benefits”
