Here is an IF success story from one of my readers which was posted in my food blog on July 9, 2011. This is indeed one of the most encouraging comments that I receive ever since I blog on IF and food. So I’ve decided to copy this comment from my Hong Kong Food Blog and post it here.
Hi Anna, I didn't know where to drop this, so I'm just going to leave this here.
Back in September, I had this massive craving for Cantonese food while I was at school (without my parents' cooking). I googled around and came to your site. Then I read about IF. I've never made an effort to lose weight, but I decided to give IF a try. I did it for about three months. Then Christmas break came around. After that, I reduced my fasts and eventually stopped because juggling my semester schedule and IF was too much for me.
However, I just wanted to thank you so so so much, with every ounce of sincerity that I have. When I stopped IF, I started eating healthier (and I'm not just saying "eating healthier," I really mean it.
Lifestyle changing, healthy eating, not just dieting - "healthy eating", if that makes sense. I don't think I could ever ever have done this if I hadn't stumbled on your blog.
IF taught me how to look at food differently every single day. It taught me about hunger and bored eating. It taught me so much, in only three months that I did it seriously.
I'm down 30 lbs now. I lost 10 pounds on IF, then the other 20 lbs by eating responsibly. This is a leap for me because I had never lost more than 5 lbs at a time in my life. I have a long way to go, but for a girl who has never really put an effort into weight loss until I saw your blog, I really just wanted to thank you. I wanted to write to you for a while, but I didn't know how to thank you, and I really still don't. Thank you so much! Also, I just came back from Hong Kong and the food was delicious! :D
