Thats really interesting info Rob!

I have a few of Perricones books, in them he advocates 5-6 'meals' daily to 'keep blood sugar level' and to blunt cortisol response.
Dr P has changed his tune it seems, where did you pick up the information?
Is cortisol not so bad after all, intermittently?

I've 24+ hrs fasted before, but never often enough, im going to try the approach you mentioned, skipping 2 meal every few days maybe.

Tony-
If one is not insulin resistant the cortisol domp is nto much of a problem. The folks who have htis problem are insulin resistant meal skippers...bad diet, starve all day and huge carb emal before bed.

Dr. P has some good stuff. he makes it all about aesthetics so people go nuts over it.

After reading this thread, I thought I'd give the WD another shot. I've been doing it for a week and I've had some mixed results. First, I've lost 4 lbs and 2 inches of my waist. I'm a teacher, so I'm really busy during the day which makes the undereating phase not bad at all. Early in the first week my workouts were tough, but got better as I adjusted. Also, morning workouts are much better than my usual afternoon workouts.

We have long meetings after a meal on Mondays and that has prooven to be a chanllenge to stay awake. I'm not sure if it would be any different if I was eating more during the day, but its a struggle nevertheless. Also its been tough to focus toward the end of a 3 hr practice, although again, I've been plenty rummy at that stage w/ more traditional eating patterns.
