I don't think they ever actually say "reverse" because they only believe in management.

Doing things Silicon Valley elitists do makes me feel a little sick to my stomach, but I guess we also have breathing in common.

Do artificial sweeteners affect blood sugar?
Amazing - 150 pounds lost, or half her original weight. You think this saved her life?
I am currently enrolled in the Tufts University ADAPT (Adhering to Dietary Approaches for Personal Taste) study, run by non other then Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging. In short, a bunch of USDA frauds. It essentially consists of 12+ surveys about my diet. I just completed a 24-hour dietary recall.
I just took the 24-hour recall survey. Needless to say, the USDA feels I'm already in the grave. Some interesting stats (though some of the actual nu...mbers are off - including the fact I typically do not fast on the weekends).

I'm sorry but I have to comment on this link the Diet Doctor linked to a CBS article. I have been intermittent fasting for a couple years now, and I do NOT jump out of bed when I wake up. I have never been and will never be a morning person. The inference of a huge energy boost is simply not true across the board.
Secondly, the article cites a doctor following individuals intermittent fasting - eating 500 calories every-other-day! So, a low-calorie diet to boot? Definitely would not recommend. Look at how much 500 calories is - nothing.
