    If you've ever wondered about fasting, why/if it works, or how it works. Then this is the video for you:



    I read about fasting a couple of years ago and started implementing it as soon as I could.

    I first started with what I'd call a "moderate" fast where I made sure to not consume any calories for 12 hours every day. I didn't use the 5/2 method, and I didn't go strictly "Paleo" either.

    The result? I lost 40lbs in about 6 months. The majority of it fat/water weight (FYI I didn't use one of those BMI tests to be exactly sure).

    The video above is about as good an explanation of why and how it works as I have ever seen. If you've got 30 minutes to watch it, I suggest you do. Unless you're an adonis already of course.

    P.S. Please forgive me for trying out a tiny bit of copywriting in the process. I need some practice :).

    I've been following Dr. Fung for a year or so now!

    This man really is a genius and it's sad to see that the U.S has blinded a vast majority of it's residents to the miracle of fasting paired with weight loss and a HUGE score of other benefits with it

    Great post!

    I wouldn't say I "follow" him, but this video is truly remarkable.

    There's also a hidden lesson in it; how to take a complicated idea and present it in a way that a five year old can understand.

    It's true, I actually do the intermittent fasting diet where I eat a small breakfast at around 6-7am then nothing besides water until 6pm and I feast until 10pm getting the remaining calories for the day have helped tremendously with losing body fat and a better sense of well-being.

    Fuck it. I'll do it. This is January 10th and I weigh 295lbs. When I was in shape I weighed between 210 and 220. I'll stop eating entirely and post results. I've been trying to lose weight for months now.. Let's see what happens.

    Thanks for the vid If I get back down to where I want by doing this I will give you Rep. If I die no rep for you.

    Let's hope that this doesn't happen :)

    Thanks for posting this. I've been curious about fasting lately, as I recently heard a radio interview with a nutritionist who does it regularly.

    I think you might be going the hard way there, but whatever works for you!

    If you're sleeping 6-8 hours per night, not eating and drinking calories before and/or after that is probably easier. That's what I do.

    I wouldn't go that hardcore right off the bat! Say you eat when you get up? Leave it until lunchtime to begin with as an example. It's mainly about giving your body time to use its already stored resources.

    Please don't go dying on me :).

    You get laid more due to the rippeled gains. Who the hell would want such a thing

    Did not see the video - however, wanted to share some things.

    I have been practicing IF for more than a couple years now.
    Most of it has been with an 8 hour window - stopped eating breakfast, only ate lunch and dinner (1pm - 8pm).
    Lately I have been experimenting with a 24h cycle: I only eat dinner.

    I am very satisfied with the results.

    It has not hampered my muscle gains (even working out in a fasted state using BCAA+ and then fasting for hours after), and while I'm not cutting at the moment, I believe weight loss would be fairly easy.

    The things about educating your body to eat differently is to do it by steps.
    If you want to go from 4 meals a day to 1 you will probably fail if you try it at once.

    Here's how I did it.

    First, notice I already ate only twice a day in a 8 hour window. My goal was to remove lunch.

    I started using a bit of butter in my coffee in the morning and at lunchtime. This helps with the hunger.
    Using the butter has basically removed my hunger instantly.
    At dinner, I was very hungry, and I let myself eat at will in the first stage. I gained some weight (I normally have a very rigid diet).

    Then I removed the butter. At that point my body was accustomed to not eat during the day.
    No hunger at all. I still let myself indulge at the only meal rather than count calories.

    Now, I have less hunger at dinnertime too, and I'm confident I can control my diet when I'll need to cut.

    If I do something taxing in the morning, I eat an apple around lunchtime to avoid feeling exhausted.
    It's almost never the case, but if a 24h fasting window scares you, that works too.

    I'm not necessarily recommend this to anybody, just wanted to let interested people know that it's very possible and painless if you do it the right way.
    If you are severely overweight, you would do better to use severe calories restriction rather than outright starving yourself.

    800-1000 calories a day, for a limited time, should be safe enough.

    However, you should really consult a doctor about it and get checked before starting and then every month after that to be safe.

    The only one fact due to which I'll even try this, is the mental clarity.

    If I lose a few pounds besides, nice.

    THANKS!

    I didn't do the BCAAs myself (I'd read about it), but it still worked out well.

    Not sure about the second part though, that's exactly what the video tells you not to do because it doesn't work. Would be a good idea to see a doctor though :thumbsup:.

    Was it you who posted the thread about feeling groggy after eating? I'll read it when I get a chance and see if there is anything there I might notice that will perhaps help you.

    I don't really have reference points without BCAA, so they might be completely useless for what we know.
    If I don't take them I have less energy during lifting and perform worse, though, so it works out.
    What exactly? Low calories instead of complete starvation?
    How can it not work? It's far below maintenance. It's also what they do to very obese people to lose weight before surgery, I think.

    I'll watch the video though, maybe tonight if I have time. Sounds interesting.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear enough there. Short version? Restricting calories = more willpower required and can cause yo-yo dieting.

    He makes a great point that fasting is actually less work, because you don't have to cook or buy anything.

    I wouldn't say low calories doesn't work at all, but I've lost count of the amount of calorie cutters I know who never keep the weight off.

    Some other personal notes:

    • I fast, but I haven't changed my diet in any major way to accommodate it.
    • Feel sluggish while fasting? Have some black Coffee/Tea (little to no calories, doesn't interfere with fasting AFAIK).

    Oh, I agree 100%. It's actually the reason why I started IF in the first place.

    The user was talking about not eating at all though - that is surely unsustainable too.

    This is why I like having only one meal a day. It saves time, and it's much easier to be disciplined when you have to watch yourself only in one meal.

    I actually started the 5:2 diet yesterday, need to shift around 1 stone of christmas weight!
    I run around 3 miles on a treadmill four times a week.
    For the 2 fasting days i'm not supposed to eat more than 600 calories. Yesterday was the first fasting day and i did my 3m run in the morning as usual and then around 11.30am i ate a tin of mackeral (fish). Then a tea time i had a ham toastie. I did start getting headaches around 10-30-11pm but i'd also been staring at a PC screen for hours.
    I actually thought i'd feel worse than i did especially with exercising on the same day.
    Roll on tomorrow for the 2nd fasting day of the week!

    What? You guys are confusing me. Jason Fung in the video didn't say willpower was the reason for yo-yo dieting. He said your base metabolic rate is.

    He also says fasting is more sustainable than anything else. Obviously I can't fast forever. But it would be more sustainable because my metabolism won't be insanely low when I start eating again.

    He says when you eat you produce insulin which blocks your body from burning fat. So eating 6 small meals a day means you only lose weight in your sleep while you fast and have low insulin. Since now your body only burns what you eat for most of the day and you aren't eating enough your body just lowers your metabolism until its so low you have to cave, since that is your body's only defense mechanism.

    But he says if you fast then your body doesn't have to resort to lowering your metabolism as much since your body is free to burn your fat storage on your body because there is no insulin to block it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    You're absolutely right!

    I was trying to simplify it further so I didn't go rambling and end up transcribing the whole video. I didn't mean to make it read like they both went together/caused each other.

    Yo-yo dieting = Insulin like you mentioned.
    Willpower = More cooking, more groceries, more money spent, etc.

    I weigh around 277 lbs and will try to fast as long as possible. I expect to stop tomorrow afternoon, but who knows.
