This guy I see at the indoor pool swims religiously every day for 45 minutes and never loses any weight. He has very bad knees and I think it must therefore sit a lot during the day. But wasn’t losing any weight at all, and was just enormous around the midsection. He must be at least 100 pounds overweight with a huge waist line. So a couple of weeks ago, I got up the nerve to tell him about intermittent fasting. Actually sat down with him and explained how and why it works to reduce body fat. And he said he would look into it. Fast forward 2 weeks and I run into him again at the pool. He’s all excited about intermittent fasting and is doing OMAD. I’m only doing 20:4 but he’s already passed me and doing OMAD! Will be interesting to see if he begins to really thin down over the next 6 months. Drop that 100 pounds of body fat. There’s a skinny person inside him trying to get out.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
