Intermittent fasting 7 options (opinions?)

posted Jul 17, 2014 15:58:08 by Matinee
Here are a few examples of popular intermittent fasting strategies.

1. Alternate Day Fasting

36 hour fast. 12 hour feeding window.

2. LeanGains by Martin Berkhan

16 hour fast. 8 hour feeding window.

Martin has a far more scientific and skeptical approach than most other intermittent fasting proponents. He also doesn’t discount the importance of calories or macronutrients.

3. The 8-hour Diet by David Zinczenko

The same 16/8 timing schedule as LeanGains.

4. Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon

24 hour fast twice per week.

Similar to Martin, Brad is more reserved in his claims and still understands that calories count.

5. The Fast-5 Diet by Bert Herring

19 hour fast. 5 hour feeding window.

6. The 5:2 Diet by Kate Harrison

Two days per week, men eat 600 calories and women eat 500. You eat normally the rest of the week. This is closer to intermittent caloric restriction than intermittent fasting.

7. The Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler

20 hour fast. 4 hour feeding window.

The Warrior Diet really isn’t intermittent fasting given that you’re allowed to eat vegetables and fruit during the fasting window, but it’s close.

If u have time to do Cardio in morning fasted for past 6 months I lost about 70lbs natty 225 to 155 by eating from 12:30 mid day to 8pm. Do my cardio fasted in morning. Didnt start making gains till i separated my cardio from my weight training which I do about 4/5pm ish. Now I get lean gains and loose fat. I wana get lean as hell before I would start any cycles other then clen which ive been trying.

This is a fat loss gimmick. If you eat the same macros but don't intermittent fast you will lose the same amount of weight.
