How I began IF - 18 months ago!
My blood results, after 12 months on IF:
Finally got to see the doc yesterday (4/4/13), to get the results from my recent fasting blood test - taken on the day exactly 12 months since I began IFing, 27th Febrary. He'd been on holiday for a week, and then it took a couple of days to get an appointment.
BP 127/79 - which he described as 'perfect'
Cholesterol: HDL 1.7, LDL 3.1
Total cholesterol/HDL ratio 2.9
The doc said these results were as good as he’d ever seen. I’m guessing he meant for a 75 year old male.
On the subject of my low heart rate - 45 a couple of weeks ago, 48-49 yesterday, the doc was quite relaxed. No need to worry.
My 10 year prognosis is that I have a 21.9% chance of getting a heart attack or a stroke. Given that someone of my age is automatically given 20%, I’m quite happy with that.
Whether these results can be put down to IF, I can't be certain. One thing is for sure, though, I shall carry on with this regime with renewed gusto!
