Research Links on Weight Loss, Nutrition and Fasting

I began researching weight loss approaches and fasting in particular in early 2017. Here are some links for the sources that I found most informative. I used periodic fasting (ranging from not eating until dinner time all the way up to having a meal Sunday evening and not eating again until dinner on Friday). 

I lost 40 pounds (and have kept it off for a year). I also used fasting to help improve my concentration when studying for and taking the USPTO Patent Bar Exam (I passed!)  I hope you find this information helpful.
