  1. I started intermittent fasting almost two weeks ago and already feel better. Haven’t really lost weight as I need to start exercising but overall I feel better. Better sleep too.

  2. I've loved all your videos on intermittent fasting. So many websites just talk about "you can lose weight!" but I want to know exactly what it does to the body and mind and why. These videos give me enough information to know how to look deeper at scientific journals and studies.

  3. I’m down to a 7 hour eating window every day, but having troubles getting all my calories in that window. I don’t necessarily want to lose weight, but would love to one day get down to one meal a day. Would my body eventually adjust to one meal a day if I say, keep reducing my eating window by 30 minutes every month or so?

  4. I do intermittent fasting and it has improved my TBI symptoms. I still have a long way to go, but I do notice an improvement. Fasting is very easy for me since I lost my sense of taste, smell and hunger due to the TBI. Eating is a chore when you have none of these senses and I forget to eat, so I have alarms to remind me to eat.

  5. I'm getting ready to do a lengthy fast & I can honestly tell you that once you've finished a lengthly fast you feel great & you look years younger (than others your age) that don't do any fasting. Your energy levels increase as well as your endurance & you also lose weight.
    All win wins for your body. I do juice fasts as I was born with Acute Intermittent Hepatic Porphyria & I was told I couldn't do any kind of fast. I've been doing 40 days & night fastings for the last 4 years. I'm a bit late starting this year as my husband was worried about the AIHP attacks I've been having.
    He's seen the results I get from them. I have NO attacks after the the 1st to 2nd week of fasting & to me this is amazingly wonderful ❣ This is what keeps me motivated to keep on doing one lengthy juice fast a year. I may start to do shorter fasts as I'm getting up in my years & I have to make meals for my husband daily. He can't afford to lose any more weight as he's always been on the lean side due to his being an athlete & active most of his life.
    Dr Sung, you've rekindled my eagerness to start my fast & soon.
    Thank you for this video it reaffirms my own experiences with my lengthy fasts & your timing is perfect❣
    To everyone's good health 🥂 ❣

  6. For about 10 months now I’m on a 20-4 (sometimes 19-5) intermittent fasting schedule and it did wonders for my energy levels. Counter intuitively it gave me more energy, evenly balanced throughout the day and I’m never hungry.
