I don't think that's right for me now, but it does have merit. Thanks for sharing!

Its not a one meal a day approach. I eat normally every day. 3 meals + snacks. Sometimes more.

I fast once or twice a week for 24 hours. I never go a complete day without eating. Today I am going to eat a meal at 2pm and begin a fast, I won't be eating again until tomorrow at 2 pm at which time I will resume eating. My next fast will likely be Sunday.
