hey! love the blog. i was wondering if you noticed and muscle mass loss because of the fasting..or was it mostly body fat? Also, how many hours a week do you work out..and do you think working out made a huge dent in your weight loss.. or was it mostly the adf? thanksss

Thank you, Cynthia! :-)

I think it's largely fat loss. I have a scale that measures body fat and weight. My BF % has dropped significantly - even in the relative absence of exercise.

At the beginning of my ADF experiment, I was exercising regularly. Lately, I haven't been able to find the time due to business and family issues. I'm doing the best I can to stay active. But I'm not engaging in any structured exercise regimen (unfortunately).

I'll post this week's weigh-in information later today.

You should try a healthy lifestyle. It is more convenient for the long-term.
Eating more raw veggie, carrots, celery like in a salad with a little bit of salt and lemonjuice will help you a lot.

Thank you for your suggestion. I appreciate it!

A side salad works on my program. Though I'd probably opt for a dark green leafy veg (arugula, spinach, etc.) as the base, avoid the carrot (too high in sugar) and only use celery if it was organic. Also, I'd need to add some olive oil or another fat source (avocado, etc) in order to fully benefit from the veggies. Otherwise, many of the antioxidants (carotenoids) won't be absorbed efficiently.
