    I was sent this podcast by my dear friend Jane Schachat! Thirty years ago I did intermittent fasting on my own, in an empiric way if you will, for three months and I lost over 25 pounds. I am fascinated to understand all the benefits I received and why it worked. The scientific background is very interesting. I am totally encouraged to do it again for I simply know that it works!

    This podcast has a lot of important information of which I was previously unaware. Thank you so much for sharing this — it is so hard to identify sound lifestyles practices to preserve and promote health. I have incorporated intermittent fasting into my weekly schedule.
