Just do two days of fasting, and eat normal meals the other days. It seemed like you were trying too hard. I will soon be fasting on Mondays and Thursdays. tomorrow I will have, for my fast day, baked Salmon and grilled vegetables. It will be a wonderful under 600 calorie meal. You need to find a plan you can live with. Remember, it is a marathon, not a sprint. Allow some flexibility. Don't be too strict with yourself.

Eat less. Try a method like Alternate day fasting. No pills, no charts, no bullshit. Eat regular diet on feast days, 500- 600 in one meal on fast days. You can do it every other day, or 5 days feast, 2 days fast. I'm doing it now and have lost 20 lbs. I haven't had to feed big pharma, or buy some diet guru's book.

They are not trying to save the Post Office, they want to kill it. If you remember, it was the Republicans in 2006 that passed a "reform" bill that forces the Post Office to put $5 billion a year into a pension fund to pay for pensions 75 years into the future. They want the fund filled within a 10 year period. The Post Office already has a pension fund and other worker funded retirement plans. The Republicans created the problem, and now they are using the shortfall as reason for attacking the Post Office. Post Office jobs are good paying middle class jobs. If the Republicans succeed in killing the post office, hundreds of thousands of jobs would be lost, including businesses that depend on the Post Office and the buying power of postal workers. It would also hurt UPS and FedEX. They use the Post Office for the last mile in regions they find unprofitable.
