Join Dr. McDougall along with fellow McDougallers in lively discussions and share your opinions.
Im really into getting lean and strong. There are alot of people getting these results by applying different methods. Im a really fan of the Intermittent Fasting approach wich is you fast for 16 hours and you eat the rest of the 8 hours. Usually 2-3 meals or whatever you are happy about in that feeding window. People are doing this with very good results. I also want to use this approach while doing the McDougall program but as i know of nobody has done that while on a no meat super high protein program.
So would be cool to discuss and also if anyone have tried it, please share

I couldn't find a 6 month (or longer) report on your experience. Did you ever write that up?

It's not clear to me that you were McDougalling at the time. I'm intrigued - but just not sure why it's necessary to fast if one is completely following the McDougall principles.
I've read some info on the CRON folks and fasting. And it kind of makes sense in that case - if you are trying to get below the set point for the calories you are eating.
Any scientific info on IMF???
Did you see this. There is a free book you can download. You just have to register. I read the book and it gives simple straightforward advice on transitioning into a fast.
