I'm not certain I would be starting a fasting diet right now.

I'm not a physician, but everything I have read suggests the best way to maintain a strong immune system is to eat a healthy diet, perform moderate exercise (nothing too extreme i.e. running a marathon) and get adequate sleep.

I'm actually trying to tone down my exercise a little bit. I was going to try to do some speed work to ramp up my 10K times, but figured this was not the month to be fooling around.
Water fasting is supposed to help build your immune system. The thought process is that the induced stress of going into a ketotic state helps your body get rid of damaged/poorly functioning cells more rapidly, leading to increased proliferation of new healthy cells, thereby boosting your immune system. I read a couple interesting meta-analysis studies that show little to no harm, with potential prolonged benefits of improved glucose metabolism, lower blood pressure and lowered cholesterol. Here's an interesting NIH article on it: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5819235/

It's obviously a very fringe-y topic, but I am in good health, young -ish and in pretty good tune with my body. I'll tap out before any badness happens.
I have a colleague who swears by partial fasting. It seems to work for him so who knows?

I'm just trying to minimize my variables and not rock my immune system boat as it were.
There's more data on intermittent fasting. UC Health here in CO is currently conducting one of the biggest academic studies ever. A friend has been doing it and has lost about 40# in the past year.

This is a very temporary thing. I'll be back to drinking and eating red meat by the weekend :cheers:

I started int fasting in mid January and I’ve lost 20lb so far.

It’s not drastic at all.

On my work days I don’t get home until 830, put kids to bed, take shower... I wasn’t eating dinner until 10pm on those days (3-4 days a week).
So I don’t eat dinner on work days.
I eat lunch and don’t eat again until breakfast the next day- i sometimes I stretch it out to lunch for a full 24hr.

On days I’m home I don’t eat breakfast. So I’ll go dinner on day one (6-7pm) to lunch on day two (1pm or so).

I’m not strict, so i average 14-16hr in between meals.

Besides the weight loss I feel better overall and I sleep better at night.

It’s also helped me stop drinking as much. Except for this stupid pandemic. I’ve been drinking more and sometimes breaking my fast for beer. I need stop that because I really like my results.

Ok. Gonna be the dick. How about if mod deletes posts going down the arguement road. Stick to topic. Unite against thread-jackers.
Sorry - thought the topic wasn't political in any way at all.

DWC is kinda known for threads going off topic, but if you want to be the topic police, go for it.
You think I'll get my own nickname? Nah, I'm sure I have enough already. Proceed.

Seriously though, I don't feel good tonight. I have a bunch of tightness in my chest and my lungs itch.

I realize rationally I'm probably just having anxiety and allergies, but fuck this is getting to me being in New York. I'm so glad I'm not in NYC.

“Footage” is a bit generous a term, isn’t it? Wouldn’t “inchage” more appropriate?

Intermittent fasting works, but most diets that you can commit to will work.

I know. I hope you are fine, but every time I watch the evening news I leave feeling convinced I’m both sick and likely going to die.

Of course this leads to the consumption of half a bottle of wine, which leads to waking up with a headache, further reinforcing the death sentence hypothesis.

Try your best to tune out and stay healthy.
