As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

I wonder how much difference there is between a daily 24 hr IF warrior diet style and this plan? Anybody compared the two?

I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.
I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.
So Sabine, I think I am correct in my memory that under 500 calories is still within what Johnson considered a fast? Is there science to back this up or was his an N=1 experiment as well.
I did my first fast yesterday, along the lines of it being only 500cal over 36 hours. It was suprisingly easy, more so than last time I tried - perhaps because my thyroid is better medicated these days? When I got up this morning I didn't have a raging hunger, which I had kind of expected, so I went for a walk pre breakfast.
