I get so many questions about Intermittent Fasting, so I decided to devote an entire episode of Live Lean TV to discuss the IF basics.
Lets get right into it. Intermittent Fasting. Does it work? Can IF double your fat loss results?
Well, I can’t personally answer that for you (yet – keep reading) cause I haven’t yet applied it to my own body. As you know, I believe in coming to conclusions based on experimenting and analyzing personal results rather than just being a “what the research shows” kind of guy.
Remember, everything I talk about on Live Lean TV, I have used in my journey to Live Lean 365 days a year.
I truly live my message.
Now, to get to my current health and physique, I’ve followed a meal cadence of eating every 3-4 hours for 5-6 meals a day.
This has worked for me.
But does that mean it’s optimal for maintaining lean muscle, optimal for fat burning, and optimal for increasing mental performance and overall energy?
Well I know it helps. But the question is, is it optimal?
And since I’ve been eating every 3-4 hours for 5-6 meals a day for a few years now, could I be experiencing performance plateaus, since we all know when the body adapts, benefits can decrease.
Here on Live Lean TV I’m always looking for optimal results in all areas of my life’¦so, with that said…I’m going to take my own advice and for at least…
Now if you’re not aware of what intermittent fasting is, let me explain.
Many people have been experiencing dramatic fat loss results via increased insulin sensitivity…
As well as increases in health and longevity via lower blood pressure and reduction in free radicals within the body.
The 16/8 intermittent fasting approach simply means using a limited feeding window of 8 hours, and a larger fasting window of 16 hours.
For example’¦the typical fasting period would be 8pm-12pm where you don’t eat any calories.
And the feeding period from 12pm-8pm where you eat your calories.
I have experimented with this 16/8 intermittent fasting method earlier this year for a few days, but I didn’t maintain it for a long enough period of time to give it a good assessment.
Check back in 2 weeks or so, and I’ll have a full recap on my overall experience with the 16/8 intermittent fasting method.
