I started doing 16:8 IF at the weekend, and just finished my 5th fast. Not only is this a good use for the immense volume of vegetables we have growing in the raised beds, I feel SO good. More energy. Less bloated. I've lost half a stone in the first 3 days (admittedly, a chunk of that will be fluids) and I'm drinking 6-8 pints of water a day. No sugar or simple carbs, lots of fibre, fish, and white meat.

In between that and 416 days sober, shit is improving (and not just literally).
