This isn't a political thread - a non sequitur post was deleted.

Laundry is in, next I'm headed into the yard. This morning I searched a little more for computers for Art, we're getting close to being able to make a decision and ship to his son.

This week on PBS they replayed Food, Inc.. The link is to a discussion about it on Now on PBS. It might be available streaming online from PBS, or you can find it at NetFlix, etc. Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd bring this up as far as the diet component we include with our fitness side of these threads. I've never seen it all of the way through, but always came in and saw big chunks of it. I still didn't catch it from the beginning, but it reminded me of something I've thought about myself - pacing yourself on eating by simply fasting every so often (looks pretty difficult) or having a day of modest eating every so often. This documentary film in fact puts forward a plan for a modified fasting day every other day, in which you would eat a meal of fruit or veggies in the middle of the day and the rest of the time drink water or tea. They say black tea, but I think herbal and green would also be good. On the regular days you eat your normal foods.

Has anyone seen this and/or tried that approach to eating? A plus in this is that it lowers some of the hormones that contribute to cancer growth (which is I think my top reason for thinking this is something worth trying).
