The award to Italian performance artist Dario Fo in 1997 was initially considered "rather lightweight"  by some critics, as he was seen primarily as a performer, and Catholic organizations saw the award to Fo as controversial as he had previously been censured by the Roman Catholic Church .  The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano expressed surprise at Fo's selection for the prize commenting that "Giving the prize to someone who is also the author of questionable works is beyond all imagination."  Salman Rushdie and Arthur Miller had been strongly favoured to receive the Prize, but the Nobel organisers were later quoted as saying that they would have been "too predictable, too popular." 
Exactly!! I know what you mean, when I was anorexic I did feel the high of not eating, you feel super awake and aware and with lots of energy despite being very weak. I beat that and started to get healthy and then about a year later I heard about IF. When I tried it I got the same high off it, which I really enjoyed but it also made me so anxious because I felt I was slipping back into old habits, it all seemed too familiar… Also, I lost my period for a few months and it came back the week after I started eating normally again.
I know it works for some but I wouldn’t advise it to
1. Anyone (man or woman) that has had an eating disorder
2. Any pre-menopausal women, there has been too many cases of hormonal imbalances due to IF
