Intermittent Fasting 18-Month Update | The Results are In


Six months have passed since I did my Intermittent Fasting one year update and I have so much more to share with you. I'm dishing on all of the positive changes I'm seeing in my health after adopting intermittent fasting for the past 18 months. 

Disclaimer: Please consult your doctor before trying intermittent fasting, especially if you are currently taking medications. Intermittent Fasting is not advised for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The last time I gave you an update, I shared that I lost 29lbs through intermittent fasting. When I reached that weight, I no longer wished to lose any more, so I made a few changes. Mainly, I introduced cream back into my morning coffee, which I was previously drinking black. I was curious about whether the weight loss would plateau or if I would continue to lose weight. I'm happy to say that the most I ever lost was one more pound and I have happily plateaued at my current weight.

Everyone will have different results with intermittent fasting and my results might not necessarily be your results. I have also seen major improvements to my health in other areas too. I used to suffer from chronic sinus infections, which contributed to an overall puffy effect on my face, as you can see in this "before" picture. 

I am not sure if there is a correlation, but my chronic sinus infections have ceased since I began intermittent fasting and you can notice the swelling and inflammation has left my face as is evidenced in this "after" picture: 

You can also see the weight loss dramatically in my old clothing, which used to fit me quite snugly. 

Overall, I am very happy with doing the intermittent fasting 16:8 method. It has become a way of life for me. In today's video I share details about all of the results I've noticed. 

I also answer many of your questions. If you have further questions, please leave them for me in the comments and I can potentially address them in a follow-up video.

I just watched your 18 month IF update and, like you, I had chills and tears in my eyes when you read Marianne’s email. I’m so happy for her. In 1910, Upton Sinclair began writing about fasting as a cure for various diseases. Although he had only anecdotal evidence, he wrote a book called “ The Fasting Cure” which I heard someone mention (Dr. Fung, I think) and read. When you read the excerpt from Mrs. Beeton, i thought of his book. Thank you for updating us on your IF and for sharing Marianne’s email.

Hi Jennifer... I have a question for you. When you have a late dinner... like when you go out and have dinner with friends (a special occasion)... Do you still have breakfast, lunch, tea time and dinner? Or do you skip a meal? Or would you do all your regular meals and just eat decently at your special occasion so you don't have a stomach ache for eating late?

Thank You for everything... always enjoying every video. :)

Hi Jennifer,

I'm such a fan! You look so slim and chic, but the thing I am always struck by in your before and after shots is that even thirty pounds heavier, you still don't look overweight or unattractive at all. It's really remarkable. I don't think I can pull off an extra thirty pounds as well as you can!
