I look forward to fasting long, feasting well & training smart with you.
It’s true!! It take no time to start looking better and more alive! I had seen my doctor for a 2 week follow up and he commented, “Well you look better than you did” and I said, “Yeah, I’ve been fasting” lol And that’s all I’d been doing different. Love this way of living #IFforLife
IF or life for sure.
Been intermittent fasting for about a year & it’s a lifestyle 18-20 hrs day. Extended fasting works for me to detox and reset. Keto about 3 months. Inflammation did not decrease with just IF has with keto. Just starting. In my later 60s. I felt great in my 50s so it’s a world away. I didn’t think of aging while I was enjoying life in my earlier 50s. That’s a great time in a woman’s life, at least mine. In my late 50s I inhaled a spore which turned my life upside down, coccidioidomycosis invaded my life & battling @10 years.
Being conscious of what we’re putting into our bodies while younger will be a great advantage . Sugar and processed foods has created a health crisis as diabetes and other diseases are rampid in our society. Hope to improve more the longer I live a keto lifestyle . Prevent before you have to hope to repair. Good video.
D Love of hounds and this is the beauty of creating a lifestyle that works for you! Congrats. Keep up the good work!
@Dy Ann Parham I can see keto is making a difference so now not to sabotage myself & keep moving forward.
My experience with fasting for the last 1 1/2 years! Can’t wait to see my results in 4 years 🙂
Make sure you keep us posting on how you are doing through the years….we will be here and excited to hear.
For me, I am simply am not having food for 15+ hours, starting with my last meal at night, and then whenever the 15+ hours ends. I don’t wake up hungry, so this is the easiest thing to do. I am slowly losing some weight and enjoy the benefits. I feel empowered and have lost a few inches.
Im feeling so much better! I am 55 yrs old. Ive been doing this for several weeks and just started pushing my fasts to 19- 20 hrs. I was feeling so bad for so long. Weight gain, severe fatigue, brain fog, bloating, inflammation has gone. Ive lost 13 lbs. Thought the scale would never move down!! I love the challenge, and how in control I feel of my health!! How many days do you reccomend to fast during tha week?
I’m 60 years. I’ve been every-other-day (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, water fasting with about a 6 hour refeed window. This ends up to be between 30-48 hours between meals. I love it.
I love it. That is awesome that you found what is working for you.
Thanks for nice concise comment. I will give it a try. I guess we just up it each time we plateau until we can get to our goal then just stay kept with IF. My GP is on board here in the UK so I am very lucky
vee ballard keep us posted on your progress.
I’m 52 and feel 20! Physically and mentally.. I do 30 day fasts and a few 15 day fasts but agree that fasting is the tool.. your mind and thoughts must line up too!
30 day fasts?? So, do you not consume anything during this time other than water? Can you please tell us what do you consume and how do you avoid night feeling hungry. Howdo we start? If I even think of fasting the next day, I wake up hungry and end up with a migraine!
smudigere I do not promote 30 day fasts. I teach intermittent fasting.
smudigere I do 30 day fasts for spiritual reasons …sorry I should have stated that but intermittent fasting for health
@Lizzy Flip Can you break down what you eat/drink in the 30 day and 15 day fasts? Or how you work it? Thanks 🙂
Rise & Shine for 30 day fasts I do liquids such as hot water with lemon or cold water and soups like butternut squash.. or bone broth 15 day fasts just liquids the first 10 and broth or squash soup the last 5 but now I do intermittent fasting just eating one to two meals a day
Thank you for all of your great information! So I’m trying to find the right balance…I recently moved from yoga to going to the gym regularly (weight lifting)…
I have been practicing keto and intermittent fasting for about 6 months now and it’s been AMAZING. I had worked up to only eating between 4/5 pm and 8pm… But now that I’m working out (and I go to the gym at 3:30 am 😝) I have been really tired trying to keep that fasting window. I had considered flipping my fasting window and maybe do the 16:8 window… But I feel so much better with the smaller feeding window… So… Sorry this is so long lol… Do you have any suggestions? Or do you know if I just tough it out… Will my body just adjust? 😅😂🤪
I always say go with what feels better for you.
You don’t say what your aim is. From what I have learned (dr Berg, dr Berry etc. on You Tube) all that gym activity is not the way to lose weight, even though it may be helpful in other ways. If you are finding it difficult to fast for periods as long as you would like, it is probable that you are not on a diet that provides enough healthy fat to sustain you. I started by following the ketogenic lifestyle, and once fat-adapted, I moved easily to one meal a day. I am 89, have been on keto for over a year, and am continuing keto even though I have no desire to lose more weight. I found I couldn’t watch this video…..too fast, and volume too low.
Thank You, so glad I’ve come across your videos. I’m 64yrs young, having some health issues and of course the Doctor want to put on medications. I’m just not up for that, I know food is my medicine, as well as not eating or drinking for a 24, 48, or 72hrs period, water fasting or dry fasting also will heal my problem.
Anyway I’m doing this and feel better already.
Roxana Dwyer so glad to hear you are feeling better.
Great conversation!!! I just made 43yrs old and I’m always looking for information from other women and how they deal with aging. Thank you 😊
I appreciate you being here with us. Keep doing you.
Fasting was a huge help to me. In my early 50s and found that it helped me in so many ways. Losing weight was just a bonus. Clarity, blood pressure, thyroid and better skin. Just some of them. I’m only capable of about 24 hrs. Even 15 hrs is so so helpful. Kidney function improved tremendously. 👍
Monica Mag I love it! You are doing great.
Hi Dy Ann I like your channel. I’ve been fasting and doing Keto since February. I do love fasting it’s great for my mind, body, and soul.
YES, I love that you are feeling great.
Just wanted to thank you for these videos. I have slowly worked up to 20 hrs. fasting every day. My blood glucose is remaining in the mid 70’s which is great because I was considered pre-diabetic. Even though I have been fasting for 20 hrs a day for the last 21 days, I still have what I call waves of struggle when I want to feed and comfort the inner beast. That is when I find the greatest comfort in your videos. Thank you!
Dy Ann, thank you for all your valueable information…I’ve read through some of the negative comments about this video and I disagree with them, I love to listen to all of what you’re saying and I use some of it and I don’t and doesn’t mean that what you’re saying is a waste of time! Take some information and leave some, not all of what you’re saying may be of value to some but there are things EVERYONE can take with them from this video. People have become bullies behind their keyboards and it’s so unfortunate, they’ve forgotten how to use their manners. Take care and keep doing what you’re doing.
Wahoo!! I’ve never felt better since I’ve been doing intermittent fasting along with mostly clean eating 🎈and I’m 61 fast for 20 hrs and eat at the evening. I spend as much money as I did before but only because I buy now high quality food
I discovered that during my eating window I was overeating 😮now I started 20hrs IF I feel the difference in my body I can tell I’m burning fat now koz bfr I would stay full in my IF. I’m giving myself 7days 20hrs IF and my 1meal is 3eggs+spinach +avocado
My morning and 9t tea is turmeric +Cinnamon and ACV😊
58 and have fasted for 4 years. I change it up but my typical IF is 18 – 20 hours a day. What a difference!
Good for you. Sounds like you have found your groove.
Loving this talk! Thank you! I’ve been reading Jason Fung’s books and arming myself with some great reasons to start a fasting-focused lifestyle, and this adds to the inspiration! Thank you 🙂
You’re so right I spend so much money and equipment and DVDs and supplements and my twenties thirties worked out religiously six days a week cardio weight lifting three times a week and I wrecked my immune system to the point where I developed an autoimmune disorder because of all the bombarding that I put on my body because I was still not eating right I thought I was and I never achieved the natural weight loss that I always craved and now we’re fasting as I’m experimenting people are like you lost so much weight and I have to remind them that you know I used to be thinner but because I got sick and I had to take steroids when I turned 45 I gained over 30 to 50 lb for my size 160 from me then I’m built like a bodybuilder that’s a lot of weight for 5-4 so I totally like love fasting because I’m not thinking I’m just still trying to figure it out
Same! I’m still in my thirties but it recently dawned on me that I’ve been trying to lose weight for the past 10 years with no major body composition changed. Pounds have come and gone but overall I still carry too much weight in the middle.
Especially for Type 2 diabetics, longer fasts allow your blood glucose to stay lower longer and allow autophagy
