  1. TAMMY WOOD Contestar

    I would like to try the intermittent fasting but I have questions. A little about me. I am a 51 year old woman who is at least 40 lbs. over weight. I have had food allergies and intolerances that started when I was around 37. Including severe digestive issues. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 5 years ago. So I have been on a very restricted diet for about 14 years. Just recently I have started experiencing perimenopause symptoms including hypoglycemic symptoms. How would I begin intermittent fasting?

    Based on my own experience with intermittent fasting the past two years, I contend that a daily 18/6 regimen actually makes your body hyper-sensitive to food to the point where it generally senses most food as attacking your system. Prior to my fasting protocol I had almost no GI issues or food-related sensitivities. Fast-forward to today, I’ve been dealing with all kinds of mysterious “leaky gut” problems. I was tested recently for 25 different food allergies / intolerance issues and came back as mild/moderately allergic to 15 of those tested, and highly allergic to 7 others. On the plus side, I dropped from 228 pounds to 172 pounds and am very lean (6’1”). But, I would caution folks to be very, very careful about how they approach a dedicated IF lifestyle. You MUST take care of your gut coming out of your fast, i.e. consider bone broth as a starter. Consider a daily regimen of glutamine powder to strengthen your stomach lining. You also should rotate the foods you eat on a 3-4 day cycle. Do not just dump coffee or tea into your empty stomach, for example. Anyway, good luck to everyone on their quest.

    I have a good question-where do you fit all your vitamins and supplements into this schedule-i take multis plus some acidophilus (which sounds helpful to the gut health) and a couple other healthy supplements from time to time. since they are going into the stomach do they need to be taken during the eating times?
    Thanks

      Hi Cris, thanks for your comment. We recommend taking your supplements in your eating periods, as otherwise they might break your fast.

    I am from AP, India. 77 years old, 60.7 kgs. 5’-4” ht. I got many healrh problems,may be minor. Ostioarthritis, allergy, dementia in starting stage, stents in heart, etc.
    I started intermittent fasting (16/8)10 days ago without consulting my doctor.
    My body weight is reduced from 63.6 kgs to 60 .7 kgs.
    Can I proceed? Can I protect my muscles with the continuation of IF?

    Thanks for providing useful information regarding intermittent fasting.
    I think it is not required to consult a doctor to adopt intermittent fasting 16/8 to get rid of allergies but not asthma or diabetes etc.

      Hi Brett, thanks for your comment. It is correct that IF can reduce allergies. Simply give it a try and start with BodyFast. 🙂
