4 Ways to Intermittent Fast

The past two weeks I have shared my Keto vs Paleo vs IF Diet Cheat Sheet (See video below). 

All three approaches have merit (pros & cons) and there is no ‘one size fits all diet.’ 

I have spent much of my initial time on the Keto & Paleo Diets. However, I did want to discuss the finer points of Intermittent Fasting as well. hrat automaty online zdarma

The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting:

  • Can be applied by anyone
  • Easier meal planning due to decreased frequency
  • Requires no change in food selection (although this is a negative as well)

The most common types of Intermittent Fasting:

  1. Moderate 6-hour fast (breakfast 6am, lunch 12noon, dinner 6pm)
  2. Medium or 16:8 (Fast for 16 hours between 8pm and 12 noon: then eating window 12 noon to 8pm)
  3. Alternate Day (eat normally every other day)
  4. Warrior Diet (Eating only one large meal per day, fasting all other times)

The Negatives of Intermittent Fasting:

  • It does not address food selection (and all calories are NOT equal)
  • When a person eats they have a tendency to overeat 
  • Food obsession can become problematic due to long-hours of restriction

The greatest likelihood of success with Intermittent Fasting:

  • I have seen the most success with moderate 6-hour fasting when combined with low glycemic food choices
  • A person can eat three traditional meals per day (breakfast, lunch, dinner)
  • This typically yields both significant fat weight loss, increased muscle and bone mass with consistent energy and overall health.
  • It is also the easiest physiologically to repeat and make as part of a diet lifestyle and not a fad.
