Thanx guys. Jay I knew I was opening myself up for punishment when I started this thread. But I highly respect both your opinion and the tamber of your delivery. I do like the feeling of IF and that is part of why I ask the question. I also feel IF has helped me become more efficant with my foods so I thought that could have some bennifits. I also have found lots of info which supports what you guys are saying I guess I just needed the lingering doubts beat out of my thick skull before my feasting. Honestly I am looking forward to eating non stop with the one fast a week for the metabolism check. However I didn't want to miss out on one last check in with the PMenu for some candid opinions. Thanx to Jay and the rest I will now keep my mouth shut and chew.
