  • What is Dry Fasting and should you do it?

    Dry fasting is when you don’t consume anything during your fast including liquids. Should you dry fast? In my opinion the answer is no. Absolutely not. You can survive for long periods of time without eating but you will not survive for days on end without drinking. I’ve never subscribed to the idea that it […]

  • Ramadan and dawn to dusk fasting

    It’s intermittent fasting but done during a different time scale. During Ramadan Muslims eat a meal before dawn, called suhoor, and eat a meal again after sunset, called iftar. In essence they have two fasting cycles. One while they sleep and the other during the middle of the day. This is similar to a 20:4 […]

  • Book: Life in the Fasting Lane

    Last week I finished reading, “Life in the Fasting Lane”, and I think it’s a great book for anyone looking to get into intermittent fasting or even fasting for longer periods. The book follows the real experiences of Eve Mayer and chronicles her successes and struggles with weight, diet, and fasting. There is nothing better […]

  • Woman loses 80 lbs. in a year through intermittent fasting

    Intermittent fasting (IF) or Time Restricted Eating (TRE), call it what you want but either way you’re not eating as much as you used to and you’re not spiking your insulin every few hours. The results are incredible and it’s so easy to do. With a Ph.D. in epidemiology, Etienne-Mesubi put her research skills to […]

  • Intermittent Fasting and exercise

    The question is being asked if it is safe to exercise and also intermittently fast. First, let’s get something straight. If you don’t eat breakfast and you work out first thing in the morning you’re exercising in a relative fasted state. Hardly anyone would question a person’s ability to do this. It’s not that hard. […]

  • Does Intermittent Fasting work for weight loss?

    The study and the article refer to the 5:2 method whereby 2 days out of the week calories are restricted to a very low level and the other 5 days are normal eating days with no restrictions. That to me is not Intermittent Fasting. If you’re eating you’re not fasting. Intermittent fasting, to me, is […]

  • Intermittent fasting benefits reported on The Today Show

    When I hear that something I do is reported on mainstream network TV I give a little shudder. The level of depth network news gives to reporting, especially science reporting, is sooo piss poor that I fear they will misinform the public. I don’t see a reason to have the eating window be from 8am […]

  • Possible health benefits of ketones and fasting on your intestines

    If this article is true it is a testament to the wonders of the human body and mother nature. As human beings we over think everything and sometimes believe that we can circumvent nature and our own natural state. It’s easy to see that at our core we are just animals like the rest that […]

  • Tracking ketones and GKI

    As I’ve said before, I’ve been living the Intermittent Fasting and Keto Friendly lifestyle for over 2 decades and fell into this lifestyle quite by accident. It’s only recently that I learned that it’s the latest diet craze (hopefully not a fad). As such, I have never measured my blood sugar or ketone levels (never […]

  • Signs you might be harming yourself through intermittent fasting

    I highly doubt that eating one meal per day or limiting yourself to a window of time per day for eating will harm anyone. I think we all eat too much already. But, like anything else, too much of a good thing can always turn into something bad. As long as you’re not going to […]
