Are the benefits of fasting due to less stress on your gut and if so would a low calorie form of fasting be as beneficial, say eating a few egg yolks and coconut oil/butter a day? Or would this confuse your body and negate the positive effects of... (more)
I go walking everyday on my lunch break, when i eat VLC i find i don't have much energy, i lack that spring in my step, if i go up to 200g carbs then it comes back, but then the last 2 days i've been fasting, all i've eaten is one avocado... (more)
tatical energy is a survial mechanism. Your body responds because it needs to in order to get more energy (food). Carbs are not the devil, 5 day fasts are not health seeking.
I've done ketosis before and am trying it out again for a few weeks before my trip down to San Diego. Honestly I'm trying to get from 10% bf to around 8% or so (not a Paleo reason...sue me). My main concern is loss of muscle despite hearing it is... (more)

I'm wondering if the benefits in fasting, can actually be achieved with zero carb diet as well? Such as, DNA repair, HGH, brain function and so on. Doesn't ketosis arrive when your in zero carb diet, or fasting? So maybe, as long as you don't eat... (more)
When I eat less on certain days I'll still eat throughout the day but eating less then usual. Sometimes I can get by with a small breakfast, hardly any lunch and have a large meal at dinner time. I tend to skip meals on various days.
During the week I train fasted at 5am and have absolutely no problems. However, when I go to the gym on the weekend at around 10am or so, I have bad diarrhea (TMI??) afterwards. It typically lasts for a few hours and...well...it sucks.I don't do... (more)
Did you drink coffee before your workout by any chance?
Simple question, would there be a benefit to eating only vegetables and a little fruit once or twice a week and then the other days eating a paleo style diet? Intermittent fasting allows 500 calories during the day (without protein) and that would... (more)

Hi, I suffer from "carb face" and generally have to be on a very low carb diet in order to reduce the water retention predominantly in my face. I've noticed that 2 things help. The first is 24-hour water-only fasting. The second is high... (more)
