Disclaimer: I'm Not a Doc

I am not a doctor, nutritionist, dietitian or any type of health professional. You should probably talk to your physician before trying any diet, much less alternate day fasting. You should especially not start any diet without consulting a physician if you have a condition like diabetes, liver or kidney disease, heart problems, or are pregnant.

My blog is in no way an endorsement or prescription of ADF for you or anyone else. You should not go on a fasting diet if you are not a healthy adult (21+). Your brain isn't even done growing until around 21 years old, so don't starve it when it is trying to grow. This blog solely describes my experience trying an alternate day fasting dieting and is NOT meant as a recommendation for you or anyone else to try this.

I am not funded by, associated with, or hired by the dieting or health industry or any other special interest to write this blog. I write it because I want to and have more time now that I am spending less time cooking. All foods and brands mentioned are not due to any paid or corporate sponsorship like some blogs. I am actually eating these foods and drinking these beverages. I do welcome suggestions of nutritious low-calorie foods for fast days though from anyone with them.

Also, this personal experiment is in no way a scientific experiment. There is no control. There is no incredibly accurate method of measuring my bodily changes. I like to cite scientific references in my blog, but don't confuse what I am doing as science.

I would also like to note that if you or someone you know is suffering from an eating disorder, please check out the information and support at the National Eating Disorders Association. Speaking as someone with friends and family that have suffered from eating disorders, you will need help to get healthy.
