I did my masters thesis on the relationship between fasting and aging.

I was browsing your interesting and useful (and generally, in my opinion, well balanced and informative) website on nutritional Q&A, but I was troubled by one item that you may have missed the target on: In the Q&A item where the questioner asked about the possible benefits of fasting, you said, basically, that there are no...

I needed to lose weight because I was eating very badly.

First, thank you for the most helpful website I have found on the Internet. In a nutshell, I needed to lose weight because, to put it bluntly, I was eating very badly. Daily trips to MickyD's. I hurt my feet in Tae Kwon Do and was letting them heal (I should have warmed up). I...
