Dear all, By now I've tried Longo's FMD, based upon data drawn from the patent application material and his book, data which I posted in another thread. Basically, as I construe it the daily diet is made up of about 3 pounds of vegetables, either raw and cooked, with few nuts (about 20 grams on the average), limited amount of EVOO, possibly avocado. I must say that, as far as the practical details go, the diet was a success. I felt the same symptoms of a water-only fast but far milder. Today, on my 5th day, I was pretty energetic whereas in my 5th day of water-only I was totally whacked and mentally unable to focus. I lost about one pound of bodyweight per day, whereas on water-only I lost twice as much. My blood glucose reading on the morning of the 5th day was 81 mg/dl, a little less than my last reading durign a usual day, 86 mg/dl. I'm going to post the cornometer details, On the 1st day I ate 300 Kcal less than the allowed quota, simply because I wasn't hungry. On the last day I ate 100 kCal less, whereas on other days I ate about 750 kCal a day, the allowed quota for my bodyweight range. I'm going to post the cronometer results of the single days, maybe you guys are going to give some useful tips for the next FMD, which I'll make sure to reply at the suggested frequency.
