BBC "Eat, Fast, and Live Longer...fasting ratio

Hi, All!
I am currently on a 010 water fast. I started on Ash Wednesday, so I have had two fast days, and today is my second feed day.
Today I finally tracked down the hour documentary "Eat, Fast, and Live Longer", that everyone has been talking about. I was blown away. Great Stuff!
My question to you: What is the best IF ratio for you? I need to find the best IF for me.
I am rather thin, and running the risk of ending up underweight in a week or two, doing a 010. I had thought on a feed day I could bulk up with some heavier eating, but as most of you probably already know, that's not how it works. I don't find myself overeating.
I think if the 010 is too much for me, I may try the 5:2 ratio. This seems to have the amazing benefits of fasting: reduced bad cholesterol...reduced blood pressure...lower IG1...but with slower and smaller weight loss. Anyone know about a 6:1, or other ratios? I would love fasting to become a regular part of my lifestyle, while maintaining weight. There must be a good ratio for me to discover for myself.

"Keep moving forward!" -W.D.

So glad you managed to watch that documentary. From what the Fast Doctor has mentioned in the past re finding the right IF formula for you I think you are on the right track. So it would look more like this 011101110 The main point is to not leave it more than a week before the next "zero" day.
