Predictor

Intermittent Fasting

Recommended Posts

I've started this IF diet.

 

The IF diet is reported to help repair the body, slow aging process, and lose fat. I am on the 24 day on/24 off cycle. According to the science (see Eat Fast and Live Longer BBC), that you can eat anything on the on cycle. I don't really get that hungry but I don't get satisfied easily. So when I start eating then I tend to overeat.

 

I notice I probably get less hungry on fasting days then on eating days most of the time. I get hungry about 2x per day really strong but that's about it. Workout went smooth on fasting day. I will eat a few pieces of fruit or almonds. I probably run below 200 calories on fast days so far but willing to up it to 500 if I need too.

 

I am hoping for some pretty dramatic results... nothing dramatic yet but I plan to give it about 6 weeks before making a final decision.

Studies shown about 1.5 pound per week loss about 4%-5% body fat % loss after about 4-6 weeks. So, I'm hoping for sometihng like that... but some people lost more.

 

So, weight loss without sacrificing strength, stamina, or overall health ?

yes, all that and more.

However, it is important though to understand that “fasting” is the surface process of the underlying intent – which is autophagy…

 

btw, most ppl who are prioritizing weight loss (or changing body fat ratio) will get better results on a different schedule than day on, day off ...

mostly because for them - especially in the early stages - it takes more than one day to get sufficient autophagy kicked in ...

 

ie using "studies" is not a very good validation or guide for your own application of the principles... even framing IF, etc as a 'die t' is careening off course... far better to get to know your own autophagy markers...

 

…If you need, I can provide niche guidance, info, and referrals to individuals via PM...

 

all the best,

That would be interesting ZDO.

 

I used to do a 3 - 5 day fast twice a year. Just cleansing. not weight loss. this was a few years ago, not recently.

 

Sometimes it bothers people when I say my problem is keeping weight on.

A friend of mine had this problem - turns out he had an insulin problem that did not get picked up - he has now fixed this and looks and feels much healthier with daily insulin injections.....not a recommendation to do anything more than ask at a checkup.

I have been down that road.. When I was younger doctors were always wanting to send me for Gloucose tolerant's testing. Always tested normal. Always felt great ( still do though nowadays the thought of an afternoon nap is hard to resist).

I thought I'd share my update. I've lost about 30 pounds since starting the IF protocol. I'm still not to my first target. But, I can say this is probably the best protocol that I've ever personally seen.

 

From having going to the gym for years (over the years), and training at various intensity levels I can say 2 things: going to the gym for serious fat loss is a waste of time -- without the proper diet in place and #2 everyone should go to the gym to improve their health. I know it sounds like a contradiction -- but its the truth. Listen everything you've ever read about fat loss is a total scam.

 

Cardio training for fat loss is a real waste of time compared to the results that one can get from a little bit of fasting. I can burn more calories sleeping at night then someone at the gym training hard for 2 hours. However, weight training is extremely valuable and those results can't be obtained from diet alone.

 

The only type of results that I've seen comparable to IF would be when I wrestled in high school. I trained 2-3 hours each day and then 2-3 hours on the weekend.

 

If you want to achieve "extreme" or "significant" fat loss: there are only 2 options I've seen work:

 

1. Extreme athletic training, i.e 2 hours per day 5 days per week. Works but most can't do it. Extremely hard on body and has significant risk.

2. Intermittent Fasting preferably with strength training. Works.

 

What doesn't work well enough to justify it is going to the gym 2x-3x per week and doing 30 minutes of cardio or exercise. You might lose a little but you won't achieve extreme fat loss unless the program is an extreme fitness style program.

 

I should also add during my non fasting periods, I've eaten normally or even worse -- just to test it. One week I had a milkshake almost every other day, I ate like 4 plates of spaghetti, and didn't do any exercise: I lost about 2 pounds that week. Of course, that doesn't mean that one can't overdo it. I've hit a few weeks where I leveled off. During these times, I just make minor adjustments: extend the fast, eat a little healthier, or increase my weight training or add some low intensity cardio.

Çheck out the warrior diet. Ive been following it for almost three years now and have never looked back. It is more of a way of life now not so much a diet. That plus crossfit has been a fantastic combo especially for a former athlete or a competitor and id like to think we all have a little of that competitive spirit in us.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th April 2018.



      FX News Today

      European Outlook: Asian markets moved mostly higher overnight, following on from a positive session on Wall Street and amid ongoing USD strength with a weaker Yen underpinning a 0.75% rise in the Nikkei. The Hang Seng is up 0.94%, the CSI 300 rallied 1.75% amid speculation that the government is considering easing some policies put in to limit the credit boom. The absence of any negative news on the trade front seems to have given stock markets some breathing space and U.S. futures are also up in tandem with U.K. futures. Oil prices are also up and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 69.14 per barrel. For now though bonds are getting a boost and stock markets are also higher, with most European futures posting gains in tandem with U.S. futures and after a positive session in Asia. Today’s calendar focuses on confidence data out of France, Germany and the U.K.. The U.K. also has public finance data and Germany auctions 2-year Schatz notes.

      FX Update: The dollar posted fresh highs against the euro and yen, and many other currencies after a bout of demand in Asia, which extending a broad rally the greenback has been seeing against for over a week now. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) posted its highest level since the first week of January, at 91.07. EURUSD logged a 10-week low at 1.2184, though euro demand has subsequently fuelled a rebound to the 1.2220 area. USDJPY lifted for a sixth consecutive session, making a 10-week high at 108.87. EURJPY is also firmer, though has so far remained below the two-month high it saw last week. The gains in USDJPY have been concomitant with the U.S. T-note yield nearing the 3.0% level, which has been generating headlines, which comes with the BoJ continuing to peg JGB 10-year yields near 0.0%. The Nikkei 225 closed 0.86% for the better, more than reversing the moderate loss seen yesterday. North Korea’s Kim said that he would be willing to accept IAEA inspections of nuclear facilities.

      Charts of the Day



      Main Macro Events Today
        German IFO – The German Ifo business confidence indicator, due Tuesday, comes in a new format this month, which includes the services sector now. For the new indicator a dip is expected to 102.8 from 103.2, and a decline in the expectations reading to 99.5 from 100.1 in the previous month. However, after the better than expected PMI readings there is a bias to the upside to the numbers. In any case, we don’t expect the April round of survey indicators to really change the outlook for the ECB, which is seen on hold this week, with officials seeing scope to leave the final decision on the future of the QE program open until July, when the risks to the global outlook may have become a bit clearer and the decision is becoming urgent. UK Public Borrowing – Expectations – at 1.6B pounds from -0.272B pounds last month. US Consumer confidence – likely declined to 126.0 in April, from March’s 127.7. US New home sales – expected to rise to 0.630 mln in April from 0.618 mln in February. Support & Resistance Levels
