Most places I look say that grock would not have consumed coffee. Yet Coffea canephora, a species of coffee, originates from a large percentage of Africa. All a cavemen would have need: mortar and pestle, fire, coffee beans.... (more)

I came from the LeanGains camp where you probably shouldn't be consuming anything above 10 or 15 calories during your fasting period. I've noticed a lot of people talk about using coffee, or coffee with MCT oil or butter, until they "break" their... (more)
I agree. I believe the real benefits of fasting come from the autophagy process. When you consume pure fat, even though it does not illicit an insulin response, it still provides useable exogeneous energy for your body, so it doesn't have to tap... (more)
Are the benefits of fasting due to less stress on your gut and if so would a low calorie form of fasting be as beneficial, say eating a few egg yolks and coconut oil/butter a day? Or would this confuse your body and negate the positive effects of... (more)
I go walking everyday on my lunch break, when i eat VLC i find i don't have much energy, i lack that spring in my step, if i go up to 200g carbs then it comes back, but then the last 2 days i've been fasting, all i've eaten is one avocado... (more)
tatical energy is a survial mechanism. Your body responds because it needs to in order to get more energy (food). Carbs are not the devil, 5 day fasts are not health seeking.
I've heard that probiotics need food to feed off of so that's the basis of my question. From my research (although it seems to be an unclear topic), the best time to take a probiotic is about 30 minutes before a meal to let it sit in the stomach... (more)

When I eat less on certain days I'll still eat throughout the day but eating less then usual. Sometimes I can get by with a small breakfast, hardly any lunch and have a large meal at dinner time. I tend to skip meals on various days.
Simple question, would there be a benefit to eating only vegetables and a little fruit once or twice a week and then the other days eating a paleo style diet? Intermittent fasting allows 500 calories during the day (without protein) and that would... (more)
Hey there! okay, so my mom is islamic and wants to join the ramadan month, a fasting month where you're allowed to eat before sunrise and after sundown - means, not during the day. While I always thought this must be the worst thing you can do... (more)

I typically do a 20 hour fast 2-3 times/week...would ingesting an ACV drink (ACV, warm water, lemon, cayenne) effect any benefits of fasting? I know it has 0 calories, however I try to avoid most things beyond water/tea to allow my... (more)
I typically Intermittent fast (leangains style) 16-18 hours every weekday with a 6-8 hour eating window. I've incorporated raw potato starch into my diet, but I think I might be breaking my fast by ingesting the potato starch first thing in... (more)
I've been doing a daily fasting regimen for a while now but I'm looking to switch to alternate day fasting for the extended fasting period benefits. However, in the past when I've done >24 hour fasts I've found it hard to sleep and a bit... (more)
I certainly do not make a habit of binging. I don't even have a "cheat" day or meal because I'm someone where if I let myself have a little I'll let myself have a lot. But on the unfortunate circumstances where it does happen, what do you... (more)
Does anyone know what causes the energy burst & feeling of your body being light during fasting/IF? I'm thinking it's when you start to burn fat for energy/enter ketosis? When I approach 18+ hours fasting there's a kind of shift,... (more)
I get this feeling whenever I skip a meal I've been eating daily for a while. It feels really good and all I can say about it is that because it's such a positive feeling, I believe I should fast more often.
I'm a 22 year old female and I'm considering fasting once a week.. i.e. not eating anything for the whole day, so I guess it would be a 36-hour fast. I'm not sure about IF, I just don't think I have enough self-control to not eat for 14-16 hours... (more)

Hi there! I am a 23 year old female starting my 2nd water fast of my life. I have paleo now for about a year, and a few years ago I did a 10 day water fast and I really loved it; I noticed that I felt a lot healthier afterwards. However it's... (more)
If you are eating well and exercising regularly, then you will not need any cleanse but if you are not following any diet then you should cleanse your system once in month atleast.
I'm just a little confused and need some clarification. People keep telling me that fasting is NOT a diet, but then they say that you can't eat whatever you want. I don't eat sit around eating junk food all day, but after doing a fast daily... (more)
eat whatever you want, all diets are templates to start from. unless ofcourse someone is standing behind you with a gun. its not like if you have a french fry from mcdonalds you are going to drop dead or gain 50 lbs.
