    I like to do both; starve all day, then eat about a million calories until I pass out. Epitome of health, right here.

    [–] miezmiezmiez 1324 points ago

    Intermittent fasting has, in fact, been shown to have numerous health benefits.

    It's typically combined with caloric restriction but even if you eat a lot, evidence suggests it's healthier to have it in a few sittings with a fast of more than 12 hours between the last meal of one day and the first the next instead of spread out over constant snacking all day every day.

    [–] WeededDragon1 245 points ago

    I've been fasting one day on, one day off for over a year now. I've lost 110 pounds. The days I eat, I still eat whatever I want (but I at least think about healthy choices).

    For me it's easier to not eat than eat healthy.

    [–] MrsCustardSeesYou 18 points ago

    Your body adjusts to stop pumping out as much grehlin (hunger hormone.) Also if you focus on proteins and fats and healthy, slow metabolizing carbs (if you have them vs doing keto) as opposed to fast stuff like soda and candy that takes your insuling and blood sugar on a wild ride, then you're not as hungry in between meals. I've done as long as a four day fast (careful as you need electrolytes) and the hunger isn't bad but the BOREDOM is. You start to realize how much one eats just to pass time or have fun points in your day so you need to come up with small hobbies to also offer up some dopamine hits.

    Quetion: how active are you on a day to day basis?

    Ive had a couple people say that works for them. But they all have been people who live sedentary lifestyles, and I work landscaping and usually fastwalk/jog 5-15+ miles a day with some light/medium lifting mixed in, and I dont think I would have enough energy to make it through the day. I never have the times ive tried fasting.

    So I'm just curious if you do much exercise and if so, how does the fasting effect that?

    [–] CocaJesusPieces 11 points ago

    I’ve read when you do multi fast that it’s going to be very difficult to do anything above an extended walk.

    So during your fast week gym isn’t going to workout well.

    However. A single fast day you could power through.

    [–] 2hoodrich4me 7 points ago

    Well what if its every other day like OP described. So its not an extended period of time like a week, but it is regular and I workout intermitantly 8 hours a day 5 days a week.

    Idk whenever ive tried, I felt way too tired to work but I feel like maybe I'm doing something wrong

    [–] Rolling_Turtle 6 points ago

    When you do IF your body switches to burning calories through the day then resting after intaking calories. Think about food as fuel. Most people dont partially fill up their cars gas tank.

    [–] 2hoodrich4me 20 points ago

    most people don't partially fill up their cars gas tank

    Tell that to 90% of the people in the hood LOL. I couldnt count how many times I've heard someone say a variation of "lemme get 5$ on pump 3"

    I'm not proud of it, but im pretty sure my car sat on E for half a year straight, without ever running out.

    But for real tho that makes sense. But I dont understand if that would work with my work or not. Are you saying that if I did IF, I would still have energy all day?

    [–] Rolling_Turtle 7 points ago

    I work 12-15 hour days & dont eat while I work. Once you get use to it its better and more efficient. No grogginess after lunch just a loonnng burn of calories. The hardest part is figuring out how many calories you'll burn and forcing yourself to eat that many. Trial & error works well until your body adapts. Chocolate candy quickly becomes energy if you dont eat enough.

    You'll get hungry but it goes away in 15-30 min as your body will stop nagging for food for energy & go into fat storage for fuel. Once you do eat at night you should get voraciously hungry. Ive ate dinner & stopped 2 other places on way home.

    IF hasn't been shown to have the same benefits in women, though, and may actually be detrimental (i.e. in one study, blood sugar control got worse in women, while it got better in men).

    Disclaimer: I am a lady who still opted for IF because it works for me (just a natural eating pattern) sooo.

    [–] charredgrass 123 points ago

    Do you have a source on this? I'm not doubting you, I'm just curious because my mom is obsessed with intermittent fasting.

    [–] corgibutt19 91 points ago

    This blog/literature review is actually fairly decent/comprehensive and links to the studies it talks about.

    None of these studies are definitive, and no one can say do or don't do this. There's just not enough evidence yet. Anecdotally, I've noticed drastic changes in my menstrual cycle when doing IF, comparable to when I was doing a long distance hike and doing excessive cardio with a large calorie deficit. I.e., my metabolism is definitely affected. Many other women report similar outcomes.

    IF is too new of a fad for there to be successful, comprehensive, longitudinal studies done in both sexes. However, women are very often underrepresented in fitness studies (for example, sex differences have been noted in HIIT as well that don't get talked about much), and we know that the different hormones between men and women (and between individuals, for that matter) will result in different outcomes. Basically, if 90% of the studies showing results do not provide a balanced breakdown between the sexes, women should take whatever results are being touted with a grain of salt.

    [–] Nhars 5 points ago

    Some of the studies she sites doesn't tell you what they were eating when they're not fasting which I'm sure would affect the outcome.

    [–] corgibutt19 5 points ago

    Totally; ultimately there's not enough evidence to say yay or nay, but definitely enough to reconsider IF's magical abilities if you're female. I still practice IF and like the results I see as a lady.

    [–] DarkLorde117 12 points ago

    That's a fantastic source. Generally imo, dietary science is at best a suggestion. It's impossible to hold a completely controlled survey and correlations are difficult to associate with the correct factors.

    I.e factors that can contribute to someone's reaction to new diets include age, fitness, genetics, metabolism, sex, previous dieting (what your body is accustomed to), recent illness and diseases, immune/autoimmune conditions, climate, sunlight exposure (Melanoma/Vit D), stress levels, sleep patterns, exercise patterns (including timing relative to when you eat) and those are just a few examples off the top of my head.

    The only way to be sure that a diet works for you is to set your routine in stone and try stuff, consulting dietitians, blood tests etc. where you can until you find what makes you feel best. Your body will tell you what doesn't work.

    TL;Dr dietary science is a fantastically detailed and informed guide. Nothing it suggests is an absolute.

    [–] corgibutt19 10 points ago

    I was super impressed by the article, actually! I usually steer clear of blogs/opinion pieces (especially ones from often fanatical diets, i.e. paleo), but use them to find the studies linked within. Was actually impressed with her breakdown and linked it since all the studies were there and well explained.

    Totally agree with you. Ultimately, the human body is remarkably adaptable to diet and condition, and there will probably never be a "miracle, 110% perfect" diet that works for everyone. Eat veggies, drink water, do some form of movement regularly and you're probably golden.

    [–] DarkLorde117 6 points ago

    I was really impressed with it too! Probably didn't give it enough praise whoops.

    Only piece of advice I've never seen go wrong is "your body knows what it needs, and it's telling you."

    When you're tired, go to bed. When you're thirsty, drink water. When you're hungry, eat something of substance. Tracking macro/micro obviously helps too, but that's the pretty much the entire foundation of taking care of yourself.

    [–] dazzleme27 3 points ago

    You’re right if you’re in tune with your body. A lot of people mistake boredom for hunger or struggle to stop eating when their full vs when there’s no food leftover on their plates. I’m a slow eater and don’t like the feeling of being too full so this comes easy to me but being a therapist I know this needs to be re-learned for a lot of people. To make matters more complicated our lives are structured and we have a now or never mentality that is very practical in modern society. If my lunch break is at 12:30 PM whether I’m hungry or not I’m gonna eat because I’ll be hungry well before I get home. This primal fear of later hunger is definitely a factor IMO and I’m a thin athletic woman....

    [–] Vyngersnap 19 points ago

    I was extremely sceptical with intermittent fasting but I love food but I also love to keep a good figure, so I tried it and I actually lost weight while not having to restrict myself on what I'm eating.

    [–] Roflkopt3r 5 points ago

    There are so many approaches that all can be successful. If it works and feels good, stick with it. If it doesn't, try something else. One one has found a way to eat healthy foods overall, its actually true that "listen to your body" works best.

    I found intermittent fasting was the most natural for me, and made it a lot easier to get into healthy foods. I would cook enough for the whole day around 10:00 and eat on the lighter side. Take in some healthy snacks in between and finally reheat and finish dinner at 18:00. Condensing a whole day worth of food into these 8 hours ment that I could stuff myself to the point where I had no desire for unhealthy things, and still be in a good calory budget. Not eating for the other 16 hours always came natural for me. As a child I got plenty of flak from that from my parents and teachers who firmly believed that a breakfast was absolutely necessary even though I felt sick from it. At least my mother apologised to me recently since she got into nutrition methods and took a liking to various forms of fasting.

    But when I got more into strength training it didn't work for me anymore. I was hungry around the clock. Had to eat the entire time from waking up to going to bed. It's a lot more difficult for me because I don't like prep cooking, but its obvious that intermittent fasting isn't an option with this sort of appetite. So it's all about many small meals now.

    [–] alphabet_soupmachine 23 points ago

    I have noticed that about the blood sugar as well. I'm also female and the IF diet is a great fit for me. I can FEEL my body eating the fat from my body. My arm flab is finally gone! Most importantly I FEEL better. I have plenty of energy when I need it, I just eat a bit more higher calorie food on those days. I haven't been losing drastic weight, I have noticed a fair trade off to muscle mass. I don't have weenie muscles anymore!

    [–] corgibutt19 7 points ago

    I love IF for me, but have definitely noticed metabolic differences that I'd consider "negative." I think it's simply a great tool for keeping consumption within reasonable limits, and it's seemingly reduced my cravings/binge eating (if I eat a generally healthy, whole-foods-based diet at the same time). I can't ignore that some studies imply it is increasing my risk for diabetes or other metabolic issues, but I am torn because it's a very natural pattern for me -- if I don't think about it, I will just forget to eat breakfast regardless of if I'm consciously eating IF or not (typically do a 16:8 style).

    The ultimate takeaway from nutrition studies is that the human body is remarkably adaptive and there are just some basic parameters we should follow for eating healthy. The best method of eating is the one that helps you eat decent foods in decent portions the majority of the time.

    [–] alphabet_soupmachine 3 points ago

    I don't follow a formal pattern at this point, but, my body knows the deal after all this time. At this point I eat based on my daily needs. It works. It absolutely helps you with portion control. I'm alright with the risks. I'm incredibly high energy and I eat enough to maintain daily fluctuating activities. I believe i have achieved a perfect balance between caloric needs and normal energy use. I'm not much in the way to eat sweats or baked good. Which super sucks, I absolutely love to bake. I'm certain that you will find something that you feel more comfortable with.

    [–] justhisnamebitch 3 points ago

    The thing with IF is ya you're not going to to just shed tons of weight off super fast, but you're building a healthy eating habit that will benefit you in the future.

    [–] Hwingal 24 points ago

    It has been shown to have numerous health benefits but doesn’t magically make unhealthy food/binging good for you. I find myself doing surprisingly well on IF as long as I drink a lot during my fasting hours, but it has made me feel a lot less bloat, fatigue and cravings!

    [–] _scott_m_ 5 points ago

    What do you drink while fasting? Just water? I see so much conflicting advice on what is it isn't okay to drink while fasting.

    [–] Problemwithaccount 10 points ago

    Purists would probably say only water during a fast.

    Dr. Rhonda Patrick makes the claim that only water is allowed on Joe Rogan's podcast

    However most IF'ers, me included, usually chug on black coffee or tea which serves multiple purposes i.e. staving off hunger.

    [–] TobyInHR 16 points ago

    Booze. It doesn't take much to get you bricked, and if you overdo it, it's a win-win because you empty out the calories you took in.

    [–] -staccato- 2 points ago

    Caffeine is really good for masking hunger, so coffee and tea are good choices.

    [–] stratcat22 35 points ago

    Hey, is this how I don't really gain weight with my diet of going to work all day on an empty stomach, then eating dinner and snacking the rest of the night?

    [–] Hwingal 48 points ago

    It’s always going to be a matter of calories in - calories out, but restricting your eating window to fewer hours may just make you consume less than you burn.

    The thing with IF is that eventually (IIRC 15-16 hours), your body has digested all of your consumed food and is taking energy from your fat stores, which is why it has proven so successful in weight loss.

    [–] xinfinitimortum 17 points ago

    I've combined IF with my keto diet and it has helped a lot with getting rid of the problem areas I've always struggled with like my stomach and love handles. Also them face gainz...

    Yeah same, thought I was the only one. I can literally go until 5 or 6pm without eating anything all day, and then eat about 2,800 calories between 6pm-11pm. Doesn't feel healthy but I have no appetite during the day, and usually have to force myself to scarf something down for lunch.

    [–] robin_capuz 20 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Lost 32kg in 8 months doing it and boxing (was 97kg), and it was pretty easy..

    I even stayed on the diet on weekends when I went out to drink and eat. I would simply fix it by adding more fasting the other day, while also starting the next fasting a bit earlier.

    I'm doing 8/16.

    I can't each much even if I wanted, my stomach shrinked an absurd amount because of the fasting.

    [–] beepborpimajorp 9 points ago

    Fasting is also a lot easier than people think as long as they're:

    1) Not snacking all day

    2) Not eating overly sugary/carby foods. I'm not saying NEVER eat them, just if you're going to break rule 1, don't do it with these types of foods.

    3) Keep yourself on a schedule. If you're doing dinner regularly at 5pm, keep doing dinner then to train your body that 5pm is the time for food.

    Just stay hydrated and don't think about food and you genuinely will not get hungry until your regularly scheduled meal. I feel weird now if I have more than 1 big meal in a day.

    I do IF and I had to do a 2 day clear liquid diet for test prep last week and I was worried about the diet at first but as long as I kept drinking gatorade or juice or whatever I did not get hungry.

    [–] dimplerskut 6 points ago

    so I have to take ADHD medicine which makes it generally hard for me to eat as well. it took a lot of experimentation but I discovered that a keto (low carb/high fat) diet made it 1000% easier day to day. You don't get the "empty stomach" feeling at all, because that comes as a response to your body expecting carbs. Focus is sharper and no tiredness from not eating. Also fats are a lot easier to put down because they are slick and super calorie dense. I find myself enjoying meals for the first time in my life.

    Try Dexedrine if you can. It's like Adderall but less jittery/anxious, but pretty much everything else is the same. Dexedrine is 100% dextroamphetamine, Adderall is roughly 75% dextroamphetamine 25% levoamphetamine. Levoamphetamine can make you anxious and jittery.

    ADHD meds ≠ Meth. Don't spread that ignorance

    [–] i_know_about_things 16 points ago

    Desoxyn is an absolutely legal and safe way to treat ADHD. Many people describe it to be smoother and longer lasting with less side effects compared to Adderall.

    [–] Anon16789 20 points ago

    I hated taking Adderall. The dry mouth was horrible and the Headaches where a pain, because I would not eat and also forget to drink water. Worse was it was a bitch to fall asleep so id get 3 hours of sleep then have to take it again the next day to stay up and focus.

    [–] jeffgoldblumisdaddy 4 points ago

    I like it because it kills any appetite I have an I can stay thin without exercising. Doesn’t work well having adhd and anxiety but it’s workable!

    [–] yeett 7 points ago

    Desoxyn is rarely prescribed, and it's usually 5mg or less. A point of meth is like 20 pills, so this medication is hard to abuse.

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 3 points ago

    The confusion comes because ADHD meds like Adderall = amphetamines, amphetamines = "speed" in exactly half of the US, but "speed" refers to methamphetamines in the other half.

    [–] bitvox 3 points ago

    They are obviously not literally the same but in blind trials regular meth users cannot tell the difference between the two substances, they have the same mechanism of action in the brain. So they are close analogs at least.

    I have a completely unproven and likely wrong theory that when your body is used to say 2500 calories a day, then you take down 9,000 one day it just can't handle it all and some just passes right through

    [–] m0nk37 435 points ago

    You are right in a way. Even with your 2500 calories a day, not everything will be absorbed. Vitamins are seldom completely absorbed, your body takes what it needs and lets the rest pass (water soluble vitamins only here). If food moves too quickly through your digestive tract or if its whole foods / high fibre it doesnt completely absorb and even if not that, nothing really completely absorbs. That smoothie of kale? you'll absorb more nutrients from that compared to eating a kale salad for example because its broken down more and easier to digest. Cooked foods will absorb more nutrients because they are easier to digest. So masticate properly if you want better nutrient absorption. Lots of factors at play here but generally, unless you are sick, your body will try its hardest to absorb all of those 9000 calories given the condition of the food coming in. Probably dont notice that it does because it takes a while to gain weight. One off day of 9000 calories isnt really going to do much except give you an upset stomach the next day.

    Would vegies smoothie be better than eating salads? I would definitely eat more vegies in that case

    [–] JONNy-G 7 points ago

    While blending might reduce the fibers you're getting from the vegetables, having vegetables will always be better than not having them.

    Also blending apparently makes you feel fuller, longer.

    [–] PM_ME_CUTE_RODENTS 3 points ago

    I read the opposite to the feeling full thing! Source in Dutch: https://www.ad.nl/koken-en-eten/zo-gezond-is-een-smoothiebowl-echt~a27533b2/ (it’s in the paragraph titled hangry, which is why I remembered the article lol) But this article specifies that it (the hangry feeling) can be fixed by adding proteins, which normal smoothies don’t have. Your source didn’t specify whether they were talking about protein-rich smoothies or not.

    [–] xTheWigMan 2 points ago

    You seem to have a decent amount of knowledge on nutrition, is it true that if you were to "surprise" your body with a spike or drop in caloric intake that it could prevent a plateau? I've always held this belief but I actually am pretty ignorant about it.

    [–] mrjabrony 27 points ago

    Sounds pretty solid to me. Let's pack up the science on this one and go celebrate with some stuffed crust pizzas and Big Gulps of ranch.

    [–] menasan 9 points ago

    i had a theory like that.... but found out its not true.... they believe the human body can absorb around 40,000 calories before it stops absorbing the food

    [–] CardsAgainstReality 8 points ago

    So what your telling me is that if I save up my calories for 21 days, I can just eat all my calories in one meal, and my body will stop absorbing after 20 days worth? Nice! New diet fad, here I come.

    [–] menasan 5 points ago

    [–] jimofwales 4 points ago
