Valerius Posted January 30, 2014 Report Share Posted January 30, 2014 Hi, everyone. I started alternate day fasting in October to lose weight, and since then from a start of 115kg (253lb) have lost around 17kg (37lb). I still have more weight to lose, but since I discovered that I was able to reasonably comfortably restrict my food intake I began paying more attention to nutrition and started thinking more seriously about CRON. I have just this week stopped fasting and have been using the CRON-O-Meter to attempt to optimise my nutritional intake. What I am finding, however, is that in eating for nutrition I'm really not hungry and have only been eating around 1500 kcal per day. I am concerned, however, by the mice study suggesting that sudden onset caloric restriction shortened rather than extended lifespans. My concern is that, in effect, when I started on alternate day fasting I imposed sudden onset caloric restriction on myself but without the optimal nutrition, which is obviously against the recommendation to ease into CRON. I'd appreciate people's thoughts on how I might mitigate any negative effects of that rapid onset calorie restriction, bearing in mind that I'm still overweight but now eating a heavily plant based diet and achieving close to 100% of nutritional targets.
