I’ve just started this due to pre diabetic fasting blood (high 6s). I have about 1.5 – 2 stone to lose. Nearly at the end of week one (feeling grim TBH!). But, having read the book and done some more research, I am wondering what people’s experience of doing the MATADOR (Minimising Adaptive Thermogenesis And Deactivating Obesity Rebound 2 weeks – on, 2 weeks off) style fasting is. The thought of doing this for 8 weeks feels me with dread and if the results are as good doing the MATADOR then it seems a good way forward.
I’ve only lost 3 llb this week and have been super strict. But… a bit gripey that the book (whilst it does say to limit carbs) does not emphasis it like this forum does, so Days 1-3 I ate 1/4 apple or small amount of sweet potato. This forum seems much more Keto based so last few days have only eaten v low carb veg and salad.
Any thoughts on 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off plan would be much appreciated.
