Thanks for looking at my site and coming to this page. I would love for you to leave any questions or comments below.  In addition, I’m open to new topics to research and comment on as they pertain to fasting, both extended and intermittent.  Please share your interests and questions in your comments.  I also love to hear others stories about how others handle their own fasting journey.  I will be sending out a monthly newsletter starting in 2019.  If you would like to receive that email newsletter, you can sign up here.
