2 years of daily fasting. This is a quick glance backwards via graphs and pictures of my log.
I introduced you to Time Optimized Feeding (TOF) soon after I completed 666 days of daily fasting. In that conversation, I recommended that you too keep a log of your own progress if you wanted to give it a shot. Here is a quick overview of mine having completed 2-years last week.
I may write in detail about some Healthspan aspects of it in the months ahead.
The Log as Pictures and Graphs
First, here’s an image of a snippet of my log. There are typically only 4 entries in a day – the place and time of the start and end of the TOF windows. At times I needed to make manual adjustments for time-zone changes (with international travel). Everything else you see is automatically calculated. You could maintain something similar quite easily. In fact, if you are lazy, you could maintain only the Start and Finish times.
Here’s how my TOF progressed over the course of 2-years. The purple region is my eating window. You can see how it progressively narrows. [Ignore the graphing glitches during the UK Ramadhaan period.]
If you are wondering what this really means for you, I urge you to read the main article. I sincerely hope that you do not have a window that looks like the following, below. [Who knows, perhaps your well-meaning but poorly informed “dietician” sent you down a dangerous path with that often heard unscientific advice that “you need to eat every 2 hours”!]
I had mentioned that my goal with TOF was not to lose weight or fat. Fat loss, if any, would be incidental. And any muscle mass gain would be great to have. The change in Kg has been of the pattern shown below. If your goal is to lose body fat, I strongly recommend that you master Time Optimized Feeding and include it in your portfolio of protocols.
OK, so that Kg graph (above) is all that I am going to show you besides the time-window information from my log.
I hope you will include this zero-cost time-saving Healthspan extension intervention into your own life in a sensible, scientific and safe manner. [For the usual disclaimers, please refer to the main article.]
