Intermittent Fasting: when you eat > what you eat

By | Lifestyle, Men's Health, Uncategorized | No Comments

I used to think skipping breakfast was the dumbest thing on the planet.  Any of my close friends that did so usually got an earful from me about how they were “setting themselves up for failure” for the rest of the day.

Shockingly (not really), I wasn’t all that correct.

Recently I have been experimenting with a new eating pattern called Intermittent Fasting. I have chosen to utilize the daily pattern in which I eat from 9am until 6pm and then fast from 6pm until 9am the next day.

I am by no means an expert, but I have noticed a difference in the energy levels I have each morning and extending through the rest of the day.

If you would like to try it out, have added some links to the internet research I have done so far.

Some excerpts from the Study:

“There is an increasing amount of data suggesting that [Intermittent Fasting] could potentially be a feasible nutritional scheme to combat certain diseases. In the present study, both blood glucose and insulin concentrations decreased in the [Intermittent Fasting] group.

“In conclusion, our results suggest that the modified [Intermittent Fasting] employed in this study: [TimeRestrictedd Feeding] with 16 [hours] of fasting and 8 [hours] of feeding, could be beneficial in resistance trained individuals to improve health-related biomarkers, decrease fat mass, and at least maintain muscle mass.”
