Have a watch
Michael Mosley lowered his cholesterol, blood pressure and IGF-1 levels (insulin like growth factor 1, linked to cancer & longevitiy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin-like_growth_factor_1 ),and even witnessed DNA repair etc from just 2 days fasting, 5 days normal eating a week.
I've dropped from 14.5 stone 18% bodyfat to 12.4 stone 13% bodyfat in around 6 months. My diet hasn't changed, but when I eat my food has.
I now skip breakfast (black coffee on waking) drink water all morning, then break the fast with lunch at 1pm. I then eat as normal throughout the day, and even consume my missed breakfast porridge when I get back from work, i'll have my last meal a bit earlier at 9pm. Then no food till 1pm the next day.
16 hour fast, 8 hour feed. As opposed to my old routine of breakfast at 7am, supper at 12pm and food all day 17 hour eating window LOL!
6-8 small meals a day, constantly grazing/snacking, gives your body all day energy supply from recently ingested food, and little chance to dig into the "use fat for energy mode" along with repair mode.
Anyone else tried it with good results?
