As of today 2/25/13, I've lost 43 pounds and successfully kept off 40 of those :)  In other words, I'm tightening up my "maintenance" efforts to get rid of those 3.  Still Fast-5ing -- for so MANY reasons!

Since 2/6/12 I've been following the Fast-5 plan of eating.  I eat during a 5 hour "window" and fast the other 19.  Here is one article about lab testing (on mice) that supports some of the thought behind the plan I'm following.  As of 5/23/12, I've lost over about 23 pounds w/o feeling hungry and without strictly limiting my food choices (though I try to make relatively healthy choices).  rlg

  1. When I successfully lost 41 lbs. a couple of years ago I ate 6 small meals/snacks a day. That Grazing helped me keep my Glycemic Index steady, I did all the Action Points you listed too. I wish I could do the Fasting Plan because it sounds so sensible, but with having Hypoglycemia, if I were to Fast for 16 hours straight I'd probably be in trouble since my sugar level would surely plunge dangerously low.
