I did this video because I want to talk a little bit about something I do from time to time, and that's intermittent fasting. We've all heard the school of thought that we need to eat every two hours. The reason behind that thought process is that we want to keep glucose levels higher, keep amino acid levels and nitrogen balance higher so that we don't catabolize and break down muscle tissue... So we're always eating. The general idea behind intermittent fasting (or what most people think) is that by reducing the calorie intake, glycogen stores in muscles, glucose levels......

It has gained it's popularity mostly by those who have had some success with it...in the short term! The issue with intermittent fasting and even some of the other diet methods talked about in this video is that they are questionable long term solutions at best.

  • How Intermittent Fasting Affects Your Body and Brain

    Stars like Beyonce and Hugh Jackman have spoken out about following intermittent fasting plans to get in shape. How does intermittent fasting work? Here's what actually happens to your body and brain when you fast. Following is a transcript of the video. How long has it been since you last ate? People who fast intermittently often eat within an 8-hour block, leaving 16 hours of fasting in between. During that 16-hour stretch, their bodies undergo an important change that sets them apart from non-fasters. Here's how it works. When you eat, you store some of that energy in the liver as glycogen. But after 10-12 hours of not eating, your glycogen reserves will be extremely low. As a result, you may feel more irritable than normal, a term scientists call "hangry." The upside is — with litt...

Unless you are relatively keto adapted (or have experience with fasting of course), it's important that you take precautions while doing a fast. Fasting isn't inherently dangerous, *but diving into fasting when your body is in no way geared for it can be.* I recommend doing more research before doing longer fasts. "The Complete Guide to Fasting" (http://amzn.to/2tQjxXa) is a good book to start with. As Tim Ferriss puts it: Please don't do anything stupid and kill yourself. It would make us both quite unhappy. Just in case I should also say that of course you need to balance fasting with eating - You need to survive off of something. I have been doing intermittent fasting the past year (22 hours fasted, 2 hours eating - you can widen it to 16/8, which still provides great benefits) and will fast for a couple days every other month or so. Several other people have recommend a routine like this - Tim Ferriss recommends doing a 3 day fast once per month and a 7 day fast once per year. Also make sure you're getting enough fat, protein, micronutrients and fiber to maintain a healthy weight and healthy body - *excessive* fasting can be very dangerous. Books Mentioned: "The Obesity Code" by Dr. Jason Fung - http://amzn.to/2rXtalh "The Fasting Cure" by Upton Sinclair - (If you google the title you can find the full book online) "Tools of Titans" by Tim Ferriss - http://amzn.to/2rX6P7E [BLINKIST] Blinkist is an app I've been using lately to discover new books and review the ones I've already read. It gives you the key points in text or audio form from tons of different non-fiction books. Since I'm always going through so many books to get these done, it's very useful to get me exposed to more concepts beforehand to know if it's worth my time to buy and read through that particular book.

Control your major fat burning hormones with this proven trick: http://go2.sixpackshortcuts.com/SH2A1 -- Check out Tom's channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheTdelauer -- Hey guys, Thomas DeLauer here... I did this video because I want to talk a little bit about something I do from time to time, and that's intermittent fasting. We've all heard the school of thought that we need to eat every two hours. The reason behind that thought process is that we want to keep glucose levels higher, keep amino acid levels and nitrogen balance higher so that we don't catabolize and break down muscle tissue... So we're always eating. The general idea behind intermittent fasting (or what most people think) is that by reducing the calorie intake, glycogen stores in muscles, glucose levels... You're allowing your body to start tapping into fat stores more efficiently. That does make sense... but only for a short amount of time. Your body isn't just gonna magically start breaking down fat tissue. A lot of times, it might start breaking down muscle tissue and protein through a process called gluconeogenesis. So it's not magic... You stop eating and your body starts burning fat... Otherwise you'd have a lot more people walking around that are ripped, because a lot of us simply don't eat. Basically the benefit of intermittent fasting more so comes from the secretion of human growth hormone. I wanna focus this video mostly on that HGH secretion because that is such a big component. There are a multitude of different reasons why intermittent fasting is great, and why it's great to do from TIME TO TIME. So here we go: HGH is secreted by the pituitary gland (a gland in the brain) which handles many of your master functions... and a lot to do with recovery or cell growth or cell regeneration... or muscle growth. Unfortunately those levels naturally decline as we age, so if we have higher levels of HGH, it's only natural that we would have higher levels of lean body mass and lower levels of body fat. They're clinically associated with each other. Hormones vary with their secretion throughout the day. They surge and spike, but if we eat to manipulate that, we can really progress. Our growth hormone levels are at their highest first thing in the morning. ...Because we've been fasting. We haven't been flooding our body with food, or glucose. So the body secretes HGH to preserve body weight... but once we eat breakfast, the growth hormone levels start to drop. If we start fasting, we can extend growth hormone secretion, which allows us to build a little more muscle and get a little leaner. The caveat is that the calorie intake isn't there to support muscle growth, so we have to time it perfectly. That's where we get into the two different types of fasting...The first one is called a full day fast - SO you would pick one day out of the week that you're going to fast for the entire day... 24 hours. This has a lot of positive effects in the way of cellular inflammation. It gives your digestive system a break. It's not the best if you're trying to build TONS of muscle, but i'ts great to stimulate recovery, keep your body healthy, give your digestive system a break and allow the body to just relax. The other benefit is a full 24 hour period of extra growth hormone secretion. So if you're trying to stay ripped, lean, or achieve a little bit of weight loss... This is the perfect plan for you. The other method is called a daily fast - that you've likely heard of already. You'll fast for 16-18 hours and then binge for 6-8. Try to eat the right kind of foods of course... But do it every day. This daily fast allows you to capitalize more on insulin levels. You'll reduce your caloric intake to nothing for 16 hours.... go to the gym at the end of your fasting period, break your fast with your post workout meal, and eat for a few hours. So you capitalize on a little bit of the elevated HGH, but also a high level of insulin sensitivity which means when you DO eat, your body will latch on to what your eating, absorb it, and allow you to recover better. But at the end of the day, people find that when they do a fasting program, they get results because they can stick to the program better. Meal prep is a lot easier. You're not constantly worrying about food. When it gets down to the wire and you're trying to get the last percent of fat off, it's not going to be the best way to go. So there you have it, if you want to still be able to enjoy your life a little bit but still keep your HGH high and keep muscle on... Then this might be one of the best methods for you. Thanks for checking it out today guys!

Stop being confused by how to eat to lose fat and build muscle http://athleanx.com/x/easiest-meal-plan Intermittent fasting is certainly one of the most talked about methods of eating to lose fat. It has gained it's popularity mostly by those who have had some success with it...in the short term! The issue with intermittent fasting and even some of the other diet methods talked about in this video is that they are questionable long term solutions at best. In fact, a recent study was published that questioned whether intermittent fasting actually killed muscle or led to accelerated muscle catabolism. Given the nature of the diet, it's easy to see where this research has come from. Going long periods without eating (up to 18 hours) flies in the face of sound long term nutrition principles and respect for one's metabolism. I'm not even talking about metabolism in reference to metabolic rate, but rather just the brain's preference for consistent supply of nutrient rich (glucose rich) blood, preferentially in the form of food rather than through secondary compensatory means that the body has of producing glucose in times of need. Other diet techniques and protocols similar to intermittent fasting in their "fad" nature include fat elimination diets, the Atkins diet, and juice diets. While all may in fact deliver short term fat loss results, most will never be sustainable for the long haul. They will wind up leaving you fat again and looking for the next short term solution. In order to burn fat and build muscle most consistently, you need to follow a healthy and balanced diet consisting of fibrous carbohydrates, starchy non-refined carbs, high quality protein, and healthy fats. No macro or micronutrient should ever be entirely excluded from your diet if you want a long term solution. Athletes certainly don't screw around with gimmick diets and fad nutrient manipulation knowing how important sound nutrition is to their performance. Neither should you.

Before I tell you let me explain briefly what it is. Intermittent fasting is where you don't eat for 16-18 hours per day, and then eat during that 6-8 hour window. There are many health benefits to this, but it is not for everyone. It all depends on your goals and your schedule. For me, I stopped fasting because I ran into a few problems along the way. It was hard for me going into my first meal to not eat anything bad. With my schedule it put me in a difficult situation trying to find good healthy foods when I'm away for home. 3 meals per day is what works best for me now because it allows me to prepare my meals ahead of time and still hit my macros. Find what you like and what helps you get closer to your goals. Don't just do it because someone else said to. If you need help with preparing all of your meals to ensure you are getting the right amount of nutrients every single day, check out our customized meal plan here - http://calaesthetics.co/mealplans?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=I%20Stopped%20Intermittent%20Fasting%20-%20description&utm_term=description&utm_content=I%20Stopped%20Intermittent%20Fasting%20-%20description

In simple terms, it is alternating between periods of eating and fasting. Call it feasting and fasting if you like. It’s totally opposite to what we’ve always been told, to ‘never skip a meal’. So what does the science say about Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss? 1. Improves the Metabolism. Short-term fasting actually increases your metabolic rate by 3.6-14%, helping you burn even more calories 2. Helps you lose just as much weight as calorie restriction. We see in multiple studies that when compared to a calorie controlled diet, people tend to lose the same or sometimes more weight with fasting. 3. Targets Fat. In a study of Italian athletes one group was assigned to intermittent fasting for 8 weeks, while the other consumed a normal daily routine of three meals a day. After 8 weeks, the intermittent fasting group lost significantly more fat mass than the normal diet group, without losing any muscle mass Since the more lean muscle tissue you have on your body the more calories you’ll burn naturally, this is a good thing for fat loss. 4. Seems to be easier for people to stick with. According to the research people find fasting much easier to stick to than traditional, everyday calorie restriction. Now, there are many different types of intermittent fasting, and I’m going to talk about 4 of the most popular ones right now. #1 The 5:2 Diet Founded by Dr Michael Mosley and became extremely popular following his BBC documentary “Eat, Fast, and Live Longer”. In this method you eat normally five days a week. Then you fast partially for two days a week, eating about ¼ of a normal day’s recommended calories, which translates to about 500-600 calories a day. Not really a true fast, but there you go. #2 The 16:8 Method (time-restricted diet) Where you Eat within an 8-hour window every day then fast 16 hours every day. People usually just skip breakfast and eat a later lunch at around 1-2pm. #3 Alternate day fasting Where you Fast for 24 hours every other day - alternating days of eating without restrictions with fasting days. #4. Eat Stop Eat Method Where you Fast for 24 hours 2 days out of the week, usually from 5pm in the evening until 5pm the next day. Ok, let’s go through some common questions you may have about intermittent fasting: Which type of IF is best for weight loss? It’s really up to you. The Eat Stop Eat diet is the one with the most research, since most fasting studies performed involve full 24-hour fasts and are usually not done back to back. The 16:8 method is the most popular because of how convenient it is. Give both a try and see how you feel. Is it safe? Fasting is for the larger majority of the population is safe to do. The only times Intermittent fasting is NOT recommended if you are: Pregnant or breast feeding Experiencing chronic stress  Underweight A Type 1 diabetic On any medication – especially insulin Also, fasting longer than 24 hours is not as well researched at this time so keep that in mind if you’re thinking about extended fasting. How do I start? Choose an intermittent fasting style that fits in your daily and weekly routine, and plan in advance what you are going to eat. I’ll add a couple of the best resources in the description. Can I exercise on the fasting days? Yes you can. It’s not for everyone, but you can do it without fear of losing your muscle mass and will likely burn a little more fat training fasted. What can I drink during my fasts? Unsweetened tea, water, and black coffee are best. A little dab of cream is fine in your coffee, just don’t turn it into a Frappuccino.

Learn how to lose belly fat in 3 days with an intermittent fasting diet. Fasting is great for weight loss & for creating a meal plan that's easy to stick to with many benefits. Learn how to start losing weight in as little as a week simply by fasting. 🔥 FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitytransformation.com Fat Loss Calculator: http://gravitytransformation.com/macro-calculator/ Wouldn't it be amazing to start losing belly fat in as little as 3 days without being on a super restrictive diet. Well that's exactly what I'm going to teach you how to do today. By the end of this video you'll know exactly how to setup your own flexible dieting plan in a way that fits perfectly with your food preferences and your lifestyle. Its no secret that my favorite type of flexible dieting approach is fasting and I'm going to teach you how to customize your own fasting plan from beginning to end. Before we Dive Right In I want to make sure everyone understands what a flexible dieting plan is and why it's so much better than a restrictive dieting model for long term fat loss and weight maintenance. Most diet plans have a list of foods that you can eat and a list of foods that you cant eat. A lot of them also have rules like what time of the day to eat your meals, how many meals you should have in a day, and many diet plans require you to weigh out your food down to the Gram. Flexible dieting gets rid of all of these stressful rules allowing you to feel like you're not dieting at all. Now belly fat isn't going to come off separately from other fat in your body. I said this many times before but I'll say it again your body loses fat as one unit and there's no way to Target fat burn however if your goal is to lose belly fat and fat around your midsection in general then your focus should be on creating a sustainable diet plan that helps you burn fat from your whole body. And thats exactly what im gonna show you how to do right now. With flexible dieting there isn't any one method that you must stick to because that wouldn't be very flexible at all. But there are many approaches laid out for you and one of my favorites structures for flexible dieting is fasting. When I say fasting most people are think of intermittent fasting which in case you don't know what it is intermittent fasting involves an 8-hour feeding period That you could pick at any point of the day and then you would fast the other 16 hours of the day. Intermittent fasting is super popular but it's definitely not the only way to fast on a flexible dieting plan. Many people will take an entirely different fasting approach like eating normally for five days of the week and then they'll spend two days of the week eating either 0 calories or close to no calories. Fat loss is a process that occurs over the course of time and it's about total calories and macros over that span of time. even if you overeat calories two or three days out of the week but then have two or three fasting days your totals will balance out and you could still wind up with a calorie deficit at the end of that week meaning you're going to burn fat.. So the way that you would structure your fasting plan is first decide how would you like to eat. Do you want to eat twice a day 3 times a day once a day or do you want to completely fast some days in order to be able to eat more on the other days. The less time in the week that your willing to dedicate to fasting the more careful you have to be with exceeding too many calories. And vice-versa the more time you dedicate to fasting the more you can get away with during your feeding periods. To help you out I'll give you some templates. As you know there's intermittent fasting which is roughly two to three meals a day with 8 hours eating and 16 hours fasting, theres also the warrior diet where you have a 4 hour eating window and a twenty hour fast allowing you one to two meals a day, another template is omad or one meal a day which is exactly what it sounds like you pick one time every day that you're going to eat at and then fast until that time again the next day. And then the last template I want to go over is the 5-2 diet where you're gonna eat normally five days of the week and then spend two days of the week completely fasting where youre having very very few calories like under 500. All of these structures will work but you have to pick the one that best suits you and keep in mind as you fast longer you'll become more capable of doing harder fasts like The Warrior Diet and the one meal a day plan. If your brand new to fasting it's good to start with intermittent fasting because it gives you the longest feeding window and then you can slowly progress to tougher fasting schedules. Before you're able to completely do this based on intuition alone you will have to first track some calories and some macros to get a good idea of what your totals are. Now keep in mind this is only temporary until you realize about how much food to eat.

Desk Job or Active Job? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com 20% Off my Keto Collagen Protein: www.perfectketo.com/thomas-delauer Keto vs Fasting: Which Diet is Better For Your Lifestyle: Thomas DeLauer Similarities Weight Loss and Insulin In ketosis, body becomes deprived of glucose and turns to burning fat for fuel When we eat little foods that supply us with carbs, we release less insulin - w/ less insulin the body doesn’t store extra energy in the form of fat for later use Intermittent fasting has been found to decrease blood levels of insulin In a fed state, insulin is elevated so you store excess calories in fat cells. In the presence of insulin, the burning of fat is halted, while the body burns glucose instead In a fasted state, insulin is low. the body starts mobilizing stored body fat from your fat cells and burning this fat for energy (instead of glucose) Constantly eating keeps your insulin spiked, which slows your metabolism I.F. Acute fasting directly influences the stability of neuronal circuits, wiring that dictates the flow of information in the brain and nervous system. The cellular stress and lack of nutrition, due to fasting, blocks the synaptic activity of neurons that normally occurs in the brain, brain slows down Sounds bad, but may be beneficial for brain health -overactive synaptic activity has been associated with diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's Differences Lifestyle vs. Diet Fasting is more to do with When you eat and ketosis is more to do with What you eat I.F. can be utilized everyday, or a couple times per week, more of a “diet” while ketosis is more of a lifestyle In a ketogenic state, it is critical that you do not consume too many carbs, or protein - a state that must be carefully maintained Fasting can be as easy as not “doing” something and you can enter a fasted state by simply not eating for 16-20 hours – it takes a bit longer to enter a ketogenic state With fasting you will likely still consume the same foods you have always done, albeit, less and later in the day Ketosis requires you to change what you buy and consume, since most people aren’t accustomed to having 75% of their diet consist of fats and only 5% carbs Satiation 4 calories in a gram of carbohydrate or protein 9 calories in a gram of fat On a ketogenic diet people usually eat less – fat is a lot more satiating than carbs While fasting, consuming all your calories at the end of the day, makes you feel satiated quicker → eat less Fasting can be a struggle – can struggle to go 16-20 hours without eating References 1) http://burnfatnotsugar.com/assets/if.pdf 2) 10 Evidence-Based Health Benefits of Intermittent Fasting.

Stars like Beyonce and Hugh Jackman have spoken out about following intermittent fasting plans to get in shape. How does intermittent fasting work? Here's what actually happens to your body and brain when you fast. Following is a transcript of the video. How long has it been since you last ate? People who fast intermittently often eat within an 8-hour block, leaving 16 hours of fasting in between. During that 16-hour stretch, their bodies undergo an important change that sets them apart from non-fasters. Here's how it works. When you eat, you store some of that energy in the liver as glycogen. But after 10-12 hours of not eating, your glycogen reserves will be extremely low. As a result, you may feel more irritable than normal, a term scientists call "hangry." The upside is — with little glycogen left — fat cells in your body release fats into your bloodstream. The fat cells head straight to your liver, where they're converted to energy for your body and brain. So, you are literally burning fat to survive. Blood samples show that people who had fasted for 12-24 hours experienced a 60% increase in energy from fat, with the biggest change occurring after 18 hours. This is the benefit to intermittent fasting because it puts you in a state called ketosis. And it's why researchers think intermittent fasting could be the key to a longer, healthier life. The process of burning fat releases chemicals called ketones. In the brain, ketones trigger the release of an important molecule called BDNF. BDNF helps build and strengthen neurons and neural connections in areas of the brain responsible for learning and memory. Which could explain why a boost in ketone production has been shown to improve memory in people with early signs of dementia in as soon as 6 weeks. Increasing ketones in the body is also a common treatment for patients with severe epilepsy. You don't necessarily have to fast to boost your ketone levels. Introducing more fatty foods into your diet and cutting back on carbs can have a similar effect. A group of people who tried this method for 3 months not only lost weight and body fat, but also saw a decrease in blood pressure and a hormone (IGF-1) that is related to aging and disease. But scientists have discovered that fasting increases ketone levels more. Ketogenic diets can increase ketones 4-fold whereas fasting has been shown to increase ketones by up to 20-fold. As a result, fasting — compared to a ketogenic diet — may have a stronger, more beneficial effect on overall health. Yet many Americans who eat three meals a day with snacks in between never reach ketosis, and therefore aren't producing enough ketones to promote good health. Fasting and ketosis have been a key to our survival from the beginning. They helped our ancient ancestors survive through bouts of starvation. And today, they're becoming recognized as a way to help keep future generations mentally and physically disease-free.
