Hello, I haven't read the book (will get it) but have read various articles and the website so I understand the principle of it. My question is, on the fasting days does it really matter what & when you eat as long as it is under 500 cals? I do understand that it would be easier to stick to if it were more filling or, say, spicy, tasty things than something easy and bland, but does it affect the outcome? I have seen lots of great sounding idea re poached eggs and aspargus, spicy lentil stew, various yummy soups etc, but would it work equally well to have 4 medium bananas and lots of herb tea over the day, or a <500 cal pot of bought soup and calorie free drinks spread out over the day. Thanks gurus!
If you're in it just for weightloss then you can have your 500 cals any way you wish and at whatever time(s). If you're in it also for health benefits then you should aim to not be constantly eating - to leave as large a gap between feeds as you can eg 12, 16, 24 hours.
