If it can be cycled then that improves the lifestyle entirely.
If by cycles you mean doing 5 days out of 7 yes... it is really good.
I'm trying for a 24 hr fast and am feeling really restless like I want to eat something.
Pretty sure that cutting out sugar and flour is the most important part of your diet.
Intermittent fasting is incredibly easy if you just learn to skip breakfast and not eat til 12. That gives you all day to eat and not screw it up because friends asked you to eat outside of your window. Also leaves room for drinking.
Can you have black coffee while IF or just water?
I think there's a bit of a divide on this one. I would say no since coffee has substances in it that must be metabolized after you've drank it.
For only having an undergraduate degree in biochemistry/biology, he does an excellent job presenting research.
There seems to be some divide indeed, but personally I've not noticed anything irt coffee. I think a post above provides a link to a study which shows that coffee actually has benefits for IF and fasting.
coffee + cream/half half/milk is fine
in the 5+ years Ive been doing this, dont notice a single difference when I drink/dont drink coffee
I moved into the office recently, and probably will take up intermittent fasting once a week just to slash my body fat.
I have tried the 16/8 2 times this week and while I usually am very skeptical of these things this is phenomenal.
Too early to tell but it seems like it fixed my digestion one the first time WTF !!
Now I feel like pushing myself more. I found 16/8 pretty easy so far.
I would wait until more research comes out because the potential for diabetes is NOT worth it!
Where did you hear that? Does IF actually have a chance of increasing diabetic risk?
If so, I'm staying away from it. My dad has diabetes so the genetics are there for me to get fucked as well
I make tons of poo now !!!
No way !!
The "recomended" diet by many doctors puts you in more diabetes risk.
IF combined with 6 TBL spoons of coconut oil a day and sufficient training and exercise has helped me lose 22 pounds in 2 months.
I tried 20/4, too.
That one is more complicated to implement in terms of logistics and supplies.
Not sure it's so easy to get ~ 2500-3000 healthy calories in in 4 hours.
I like the idea, though.
