Well, heck. I was going to put a link and then remembered I can't. Jeniffer Eloff's blog has a link to a story in the Bangdor Daily News, about "Nighttime Fast May Beat Counting Calories to Drop Pounds." Here's a small excerpt:

My liver enzymes, which have been elevated for a few years, dropped significantly after following Dr Kruse's suggestions of
--waiting at least 5 hours between meals
It's a little harder not to snack on DDs, but since the calories and fat are low, I imagine that's not too hard on the liver. On UDs I usually only eat twice, in a 6-7 hour window.

I just read this article. Talks about 16-hour fasting periods. Study was done on mice showing not only weight loss and maintenance, but numerous other health benefits. Of course the naysayers were saying that mice are different from people (well, duh!) so "caution" is advised for humans. And some experts pointed out that this would be difficult for us poor humans inundated with late night fast food commercials, busy lifestyles, etc. Come on, people. No matter what method we choose to lose weight and/or improve health, doesn't it require SOME accountability/restraint on our parts? Everyone is still waiting for that magic pill...
"...had we been discussing disorders of growth - why some people grow to be more than seven feet tall and others never make it to four feet - the only subject of discussion would be the hormones and enzymes that regulate growth. And yet, when we're discussing a disorder in which the defining symptom is the abnormal growth of our fat tissue, the hormones and enzymes that regulate that growth are considered irrelevant."

Hmmm...so every day could be an UD if it was wrapped up by 8pm??? (assuming I don't start eating until noon which is totally doable for me) That sounds almost like a magic pill to me, LOL.

When stress is weakening your will and your knees is when you need the TLC of LC the most.
