I don't have a problem with people using fasting to lose weight. I did it my self. I have a problem with people using it has a quick-fix.
I didn't start to post to attack the OP. I gave her/him what they needed to hear not what they wanted. I shouldn't be the only way to do so to be honest. So many people in these forums are failing. They either give up or gain the weight back. If more people spoke up and gave them proper advice instead of leading them down the wrong hole the success rate would increase.
