    Did anyone watch this weeks Horizon? It was about fasting and IGF1. Well worth a watch. Think I might just embark on the 5/2 diet of fasting for 2 days and eating normaly for 5 although the fasting allows you some calories. Michael Mosley’s results were amazing.

    Not sure what to make of it in all honesty. Just seems like self punisment wrapped up in pop science. Having said that, if it works….who am I to judge?

    I could quite easilly do the 2 day fast on a Friday and Saturday when I’m down the cafe as I don’t often get time to eat all day. Must say, the IGF1 was an interesting bit. My son has to have daily growth hormone which I’m sure is all to do with this. Can’t say it’s made him any brainier when he wasn’t on it as he’s got special educational needs. Makes me wonder what he would have been like if he wasn’t diffy in the hormone lol. I will see about giving it a go for the next few weeks and will report back if I find anything useful happens. Be handy to keep the brain going though lol
