    I agree with the above table - this is what I experienced. What also happened to me under the "conventional" column is "spend more money", "less free time", "feeling constantly exhausted", "sore joints", and "poor sleep". And then under the "Opposite" column I experience "more money saved", "more leisure time", "full of energy", "regained mobility", and "sleeping like a baby!"

    I was lucky to never put on weight until AFTER I'd seen a dietician. But I still had the blood glucose/insulin/IR problems, crap lipids, increasing BP while still being slim. One of the most noticeable changes is that previously if I went on long walks or otherwise exerted myself I would crash both physically and mentally after a few hours unless I carried food and drink and carbed up every couple of hours. On a low enough fat diet I was semipermanently exhausted and constantly hungry. Now I routinely go 6 - 8 hours and often 10 hours without feeling or being hungry and without symptoms (except of course for being a lot older) no matter what I'm doing. I don't need to do intermittent fasting, my body does it for me.
