Common Intermittent Fasting Methods

Intermittent fasting – it is definitely one of the fastest (no pun intended) growing nutrition topics right now. I don’t think intermittent fasting is a quick-fix for all your diet woes, but I do think it’s a great method that can be sustained long term for many individuals. You can definitely use intermittent fasting as a lifestyle approach for nutrition, health, performance, and body composition goals.Intermittent fasting – it is definitely one of the fastest (no pun intended) growing nutrition topics right now.

Here are common intermittent fasting methods :

  • 16/8 Method : This is the most common method. It involves fasting for 16 hours and feeding for 8 hours during the day. For example, skipping breakfast and eating during an 8-hour stretch which would could be between 12 and 8pm. You stop eating after 8pm till the 12pm the next day.
  • Eat-Stop-Eat Method – This is a twice a week method. It involves fasting for 24 hours, once or twice a week. For example, eating lunch and not eating anything for the rest of the day until lunch the next day.
  • Alternate Day Fasting – This can be done every other day. It involves alternate-Day fasting means fasting every other day. You are allowed ro eat a few hundred calories on fasting days.
  • Warrior Diet – This involves eating small amounts of raw fruits and vegetables during the day, then eating one huge meal at night.
  • The 5:2 Diet – This can be done twice a week. Allow you to eat only 500-500 calories on twice a week while you eat the normal number of calories the rest of the week.

Please keep in mind, no method/nutrition approach will produce the results you want if you’re constantly stressed out and miserable. You need to find a method you enjoy and that you can sustain long term.

      Fasting should be done at least once a week as a detox.

      Starvation literally means starvation. It doesn’t mean skipping a meal or not eating for 24 hours. Or not eating for three days even. The belief that meal skipping or short-term fasting causes “starvation mode” is so completely ridiculous and absurd that it makes me want to jump out the window.
