Thanks Chris! Great information.
This is what I meant about my being too cavalier about taking coumadin and my clotting disorder. I think my INR went high because I did a total fast for 36 hrs just 2 days before I went to my Doctor, then started amoxicillin, which also messes with coumadin.
I will have to give up total fasts in exchange for a Down Day type of fasting where I eat dinner with a salad in the evening. I take my coumadin after dinner.
So it looks as if I will be moving to the 5:2 program as well. : )
