This is the companion thread to Alternate day Fasting- Support and Chat.

If you think the whole idea is questionable, throw up your comments here. If you want to talk about the details of the science, or talk about a study, likewise.

The main gene affected by alternate day fasts is SIRT1(in humans, Sir2 in non-human animals). I think most people who IF would be interested in ADF, as the longer period of food restriction seems to do some interesting things in the area of cell repair. However, I am not much into debating the science(just reading it), so I will leave that for others.
