  2. I am 17 and the 16:8 method works wonders for me. I usually gain fat pretty fast, by doing this method 2 times per week I lost almost 10kg in under 6 months.

  3. Is it okay to adjust the 16/8 method to only eat breakfast and lunch but skip dinner? would it still work the same? Breakfast at 6 pm and Lunch at 1:30pm?

  4. I have been intermittent fasting and Keto for 2 years and have lost 160 pounds. It works wonders. I have worked up to extended fasts and I am on day 9 of an extended fast right now!

  5. I've been doing the 16/8 method in combination with keto for a while. Before a workout I drink coffee. Then I do a mix of cardio and weightlifting. I make sure to consume non-processed food containing more fish and sometimes I go for 1 meal instead of 2. I'm losing so much belly fat and I'm so happy to notice details of abdominal muscle that I'm motivated to keep on doing this. What also motivates me is when I feel my muscle burning fat during my sleep. The next day I feel high on testoterone.

  6. Come on guys….do a vid on how healthy processed soy products are??? I would love to see what you would have to say about it….thanx!

  7. Intermittent "fasting" is not really fasting. It's a reduced calorie diet/feeding "window."

    Ketogenic diets, intermittent "fasting" and medically supervised water only fasting in appropriately selected individuals are not all the same thing. They are all completely different and should not be lumped together. That's unscientific.

    Only "dry" fasting and water-only fasting are true fasts but dry fasting is only done by weird hippies who lie about what they are really doing because it's impossible to do a dry fast for more than a few days. Water is needed for hydration and elimination of metabolic waste products through the kidneys. Intermittent "fasting" won't do anything for insulin resistance if one continues to eat high fat.

    Energy usage of the body comes in 5 stages:

    Directly from the food in your stomach/GI.

    Glycogen from your liver.

    Glycogen from your muscles.

    Ketosis: from your adipose tissues (fat deposits).

    Starvation: from your vital organs and tissues.

    We take 2-3 days to reach stage 4 and that’s when actual fasting begins. To reach stage 5, it takes the typical person 40 days, depending on body reserves, and we would look anorexic from having lost most of our fat. There is a temporary loss of some protein before stage 4 begins. Water only fasting at stage 4 is a powerful way to restore insulin sensitivity but it most likely needs a few more days, about 10, which is really about 7 days from when stage 4 began.

    Fasting is not "starving." Starvation only begins once labile fat reserves are depleted and muscle and organ tissue is then catabolized for sugar (glucose).

    "Fasting is a scientific method of ridding the system of diseased tissue, and morbid matter, and is invariably accompanied by beneficial results. Starving is the deprivation of the tissues from nutriment which they require, and is invariably accompanied by disastrous consequences. The whole secret is this: fasting commences with the omission of the first meal and ends with the return of natural hunger, while starvation only begins with the return of natural hunger and terminates in death. Where the one ends the other begins. Whereas the latter process wastes the healthy tissues, emaciates the body, and depletes the vitality; the former process merely expels corrupt matter and useless fatty tissue, thereby elevating the energy, and eventually restoring the organism that just balance we term health."-Hereward Carrington

  8. Great info! I've been doing Intermittent Fasting for 2 years now, but ppl are surprised because I'm very lean and muscular and they think fasting ruins muscle gains lol. Nope! 315+ on all my main lifts! Just get your macros and micros in correctly.

  9. The key for intermittent fasting success is not to overeat during the non-fasting hours. And that's not as easy as it sounds.

  10. Can you do a video on ways to combat metabolic adaptation when on a calorie restricted diet for a longer period of time. Such as calorie cycling and any other ways to keep your metabolism from adapting to fewer calories. Cheers.

  11. another great way to lose weight is to go vegan … vegans are the only group that maintains a healthy BMI naturally 🙂

  12. A colleague at work chose to stick to my tips and give this weight loss plan “sowo hope site” (Google it) a try. I actually started using it too, and the results have been unbelievable. I actually dropped 13 pounds.

  13. My colleague we’re talking among each other about their diet plan and how much weight they had dropped. At first I of course wanted to try this and I have dropped a grand overall of 10pounds from the “sowo hope site” (Google it). I find myself much better after trying this kind of life-altering diet.

  14. Is a 21/3 fast too much? I've accidentally been doing that all week! Basically OMAD/ a 3 course meal and snack

  15. I'm 12 and 4:10 and I want to eat breakfast at 10 am and fast for the rest of the day for a week because I'm 56 kg (125lbs)

  16. Who would`ve thought that I has been capable of achieving these amazing results? I never thought in days that I would be able to lose 9 lbs. Google “sowo hope site”. You have to try it. Just google this and read about it.
