I lost 129 Pounds
I do not follow mainstream doctors, but follow Dr. Berg and Dr. John Bergman. Besides the up and down pattern, my biggest thing is in making sure to eat 100 g protein per day, which helps my metabolism. Before I
started my journey, i barely ate protein. i supplement with whey isolate when needed.
I was metabolically challenged by the foods i ate, PCOS, obese family, etc. I’m not sure exactly why this just worked for me. Typically when I’d go on a diet, my metabolism slowed down to accommodate for the lowered calories, within days. All my life, when i followed other mainstream diets, I’d lose about 1/2 lb per week in the beginning stages, which was very discouraging. When i tried this method, I could tell within a week that something was different. This pattern (intermittent fasting - JUDDD, which is a type of ADF, also referred to as EOD) changed my life. I wish more people would give it a try before resorting to weight loss surgery.
