Blood results after 12 months on IF

Breadandwine created the topic: Blood results after 12 months on IF
I began Intermittent Fasting, on 2 days a week, on the 27th Feb 2012 - half-heartedly, because a quarter of your daily calories seemed so extreme! :ohmy: Wholeheartedly after the BBC's Horizon programme on IF in August last year. :)

I tell my story - and all I've learned over the past year (not just about IF, but about how the cells of the body work) - in several posts on my blog:

http://nobreadisanisland.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/eat-less-live-longer.html

And yesterday, I saw my doctor, to get the results from my recent fasting blood test:

BP 127/79 - which he described as 'perfect'
Cholesterol: HDL 1.7, LDL 3.1
Total cholesterol/HDL ratio 2.9

The doc said that these results were as good as he’d ever seen. I’m guessing he meant for a 75 year old man.

I forgot to ask what my cholesterol was 12 months ago, but, from memory, it was 'OK'.

On the subject of my low heart rate - 45 a couple of weeks ago, 48-49 yesterday, the doc was quite relaxed. No need to worry.

My 10 year prognosis is that I have a 21.9% chance of getting a heart attack or a stroke. Given that someone of my age is automatically given 20%, I’m quite happy with that.

Apart from these results, I'm absolutely on top of my game - I feel about 40 instead of my real age, and, where ever I go, there's a spring in my step. B)

I'm looking forward to the next 25 years! And, as someone else said, I can't envisage a week when I don't fast at least once! :)

Ps. I should add that I have mild COPD from smoking over 40 years ago - but that is well under control and does not affect my prognosis.

Breadandwine this is really a great testimonial for the IF lifestyle. Love the 'spring in your step' I bet you love walking too.

ps hope you haven't made the good Doctor too jealous :)

These are excellent results and endorse the health giving effects of IF. I fast 3 days a week to maintain my weight and I had similar tests done last autumn with great results. It obviously works!

It would be most interesting to see the before and after blood work on the 12 main bioidentical hormones.
