    Thanks so much for saving this thread, Bill! (And yes, I hoped instead of starting a new thread it was okay just to bump this one!)

    I like the idea of eating during limited hours. I just recently found out breakfast was for "breaking-the-fast" of overnight fasting.

    I went walking this morning and I feel so good. Sugar may get you high but so does burning it off!

    I think it’s all about “Non Violence”, what Buddhists call Ahimsa.....

    All kinds of rigid diets, where you have to skip many kinds of food, or even eat just one kind of food, is violence to the body.
    It’s difficult to keep up with and doesn’t make you feel happy or satisfied in the run. And often it’s a disaster to your social life as well.

    Eat what you love and what becomes you, which is what you know and feel is good for you. But then .... HALF THE SIZE you usually take.

    2 pieces of bread = one piece
    1 piece = 1/2 a piece
    2 drinks = 1 drink
    2 spoons of whatever = 1 spoon.
    1 cookie. 1/2 a cookie
    So you can eat and drink what you like, just half of it.

    You won’t lose weight very fast, but usually one doesn’t gain weight that fast either. However, it’s not difficult to sustain and nobody will notice you are on a “diet”.

    You will be hungry at the end of the day, but only for the first 2 or 3 days. By then your stomach has shrunk and the hunger is over. You will enjoy your food by eating everything you love, but in moderation.

    Being vegetarian changes lives. I am slim and healthy. I look 10-15 years younger than most people my age.

    Eat healthy foods and your body will crave healthy foods.

    Great. You must be an active but moderate person with good genes, like me ...... and I’m not a vegetarian anymore (for try to be a vegetarian , living in France !).

    I have a friend who has been a vegetarian by birth, since both her parents were vegetarians. And guess, she has weight problems too and can reduce them only by eating the same food...... bud half of it.

    Have your thyroid checked if you gain weight rapidly for no specific reason.

    Dr. William David, Heart Doctor and author of "Wheat Belly" says it is the worst food for you... It triggers hunger pains, spikes blood sugar worst than a candy bar... causes diabetics, inflammation and digestive problems.

    So I thought... No Hunger.. Well, I can do anything without hunger. Sure enough.. it is true. I have been on it about 6 months and have had Zero Hunger pains...I lost 24 lbs... Now I need to cut back on fruits and sugar.

    He also wrote the most important medical help book I have seen... "UnDoctored"... I recommend it on CD.. as you can learn driving around. He is outspoken and warns you about the dangers of our food system and medical system. He also has a superscription blog.. and post answers for common medical problems.. Cheapest health advice you can get.. Sign up.. but don't complete the process.. go to close the site.. and they will off you a 50% saving the 1st year.. for about $18.
