I keep thinking I should pop back into this thread, but I don't really have anything substantive to add. I am, however, totally entertained by the conversation. You guys seem like much more disciplined eaters (or periodic non-eaters) than I could ever be. Not that I over eat much, nor do I make really bad choices, but do tend to be a kind of "what's for dinner tonight?" kinda of girl. Luckily I love fresh foods simply prepared and both the husband and I are great cooks. My fasts have to be well planned and prepared for, as noted earlier. But I guess that actually describes most of my life, come to think of it
I hear you about the booze consumption with a smaller body mass. After I loss 35lbs (20% of my body mass) during which I pretty much abstained from alcohol, we celebrated with a glass or 2 of a great chardonay with apps, and split a bottle of shiraz with a perfectly prepared steak - I don't remember the rest of the evening, but I hear it was great!
