Diet, intermittent fasting 

Ignoring scientific literature—I'd rather believe in the usefulness of intermittent fasting than any other diet out there.

Intermittent fasting doesn't sell you on anything. No magic vegetable, no powder only a specific company can provide.

Just, 8 hours eating, 16 hours fasting.

And again, then there's the scientific literature… such as DOI:10.1056/NEJMra1905136

@yarmo A friend of mine, 70 years old, did it and lost closed to 10kg. Losing so much at that age usually only works if you have cancer.

@yarmo I tried it for a bit and the weight just fell off. The first week can be quite tough, but after that it's not even that much effort.

Diet, intermittent fasting 

@yarmo I have been intermittent fasting for about 8 months now. Initially, I lost 8 pounds. Now, I am holding steady at my current weight. If I were to exercise more, I am sure it would go down.
