    When I do it. yes, I have success. Have you read the book yet? If not, please do~ it explained so many of my problems, like why I can't stop eating once I start~ breakfast isn't something that 'keeps me satisfied' until afternoon~ even pure protein like eggs or meat has me back foraging in the kitchen for something else every half hour or so. Also, food doesn't give me energy~ after a meal, I get so tired, have brain fog, just want to nap. Better at the end of the day when I'm winding down anyway.

    Have been slacking off lately and I feel like crap, weight loss totally halted, regained some water weight ~ Getting back on track starting NOW!!!

    It's free~ just register and you can download it or read it onsite (PDF) I printed out two copies and then gave them both away. Finally bought the book~ but it's there for free!

    The book is free!! You just have to visit the website and download it. The facebook support group as wonderful as well. I do fast-5 and really like it. I was doing it before going primal and it was hard for me. Since I switched to primal it has become very easy. I some days will do a fat fast with coconut oil in my coffee during the "fast" and then eat a nice dinner. Some days are just straight up fasting until evening. For the most part I never eat breakfast as I am not hungry yet. Good luck!

    I am reading the book now. Good to know about the "fat fast". It might be a good way to ease into it or it sounds like you listen to your body and do it as needed. I was thinking that today will be normal since I have started but then make sure I have a nice dinner and start the fast this evening @6 or 7. Thinking of my average schedule a 2pm-7pm eating window would work. Of course its spring break for me, so schedules are out UGH! LOL

    Been doing fast 5 for the last year with a 5-10 eating window. at first I was eating my normal sad diet and it helped a little....but once I went primal, the fat just melted off. I found that I dont even really get hungry(stomach growling, have to eat hunger)until about 6:30.
