    My biggest personal takeaway from fasting, is, that I no longer need to go to work with a cooler bag filled with food for the day...

    In the 'guess your age thread' I'm being pegged as 8-12 years younger than I am. Been doing IF for 2.5 years now.

    I am usually pegged as about 10 years younger than I am and I have never done IF. Your point?

    Apparently IF slows ageing - that's the point

    no.
    i graze all day. i'm 37, and i've been asked recently if i'm old enough to drink.
    genes. good genes

    Apparently raw vegan diets do it as well. I'm not raw vegan but I do do IF 5 days a week.

    point being IF does not slow aging.

    Does IF impact telomeres or telomerase?

    Think what you want and feel free to not do IF or anything else you don't believe in. Interesting that the anti-IF crowd are so bothered by it. If you don't believe in it why do you care so much about it?

    I did intermittent fasting for a while and I may do it again. I used it as a way to break my food addiction. It's harder to eat as much in a smaller window and it also made me obsess less about food when I knew exactly what time my next meal was.

    Aside from that I don't know the benefits.

    IMO...for what it's worth...exercise will do more for slowing down the aging process than eating within a certain window. Combine that with a healthy diet that is appropriate for what you are trying to accomplish then that will assist in hopefully aid in slowing down that aging process.

    For me...and I speak only for me...it is not about looking younger it is about feeling younger and being able to stay mobile as I age. Then there is that "bucket list" that I still want to accomplish.

    I do IF/TRE/SkipBreakfast/Whateveryouwanttocallit. It fits my lifestyle and has helped me get to where I want to be. I am under no illusions though that it is some mystic way of eating that will make me look 20 years younger...I am 67 and I own every wrinkle that I have.

    I didn't start doing it for anti-aging reasons either I did it to burn as much fat as possible (Leangains). The fact that people regularly tell me I look a lot younger than I am I credit to IF seeing as there is research saying that it does that. maybe it doesn't and maybe it's the lifting - or a combination of both. I don't really care as long as it works.

    The fact that the notion of IF having any benefits at all appears to be upsetting people is interesting though... If you know what works for you why care so much about what other people are doing?
