If people have the power to heal themselves, we need to learn to trust ourselves and the experiences if millions. Trusting any organisation we have unfortunately learnt, is fraught with bias and self interest. Yes, ive just bern trying itcall out for myself.

    Dr. Ekberg, I have been doing the intermittent fasting for a little over a year now. I lost 40 pounds, but not only that – I feel much better: mentally and physically. Most of the ailments I had before are gone: my knees donโ€™t hurt, my feet donโ€™t hurt, I stopped snoring, I donโ€™t have the sleep apnea any more. I ususally do 18:6. Sometimes, if I eat at social gatherings, I eat only once the next day. And one important thing: I am almost never hungry. When I eat, I eat whatever I want, but I natutally and very organically started to make choices of real food: eggs, veggies and fruit, but I also eat bread and pasta and even cake when I want. But I noticed processed food just makes me feel yucky, so I donโ€™t eat much of it. I am behind you 100% and thank you for this wonderful channel! I do have to add that I also do physical activity once a day: walk, ride a bike or something like it for at least one hour per day. At age 50 now, I feel and look better than I did at 30! Thank you!

    Due to years of poor dietary choices, I’ve developed heart disease and atrial fibrillation. My heart is stented. Since learning from Sten about insulin resistance and what it causes, I’ve learned how to readjust my diet to low or zero carb and intermittent fasting. I feel much better and rarely need medication for Afibrillation. My weight is very good now at 9% body fat. 143 pounds at 5’10”, Im narrow framed . My energy and memory both much improved. I believe Stens’ elaborate teaching has much improved my quality of life and probably increased longevity. I believe this man needs to be very credited for what he is doing to alert so many lives to the many health and vitality woes caused by many of the very most common foods of our standard American diet along with his attentive dispelling of the numerous wrongful discouraging and harmfully counterproductive myths put forth by excessive conventionalist thinking of our standard medical community.
