What are some suggestions for intermittent fast breakfasts? PHD shows a picture of coffee and creme but I don't drink coffee. It also mentions non-starch veggies. Protein is off limits as well. Here's what I've come up with:
balor123, you should know the answer to this:
IF mean fast. Just skip it man. Don't make this more complicated than it has to be. Take bcaas if you want with water, drink tea or coffee, but as far as food just don't eat.
Fasting by definition is not eating. Sorry to repeat this, but it bears repeating.
Read stuff from Eat, Stop, Eat, Warrior Diet, leangains.com, etc. etc. on this. You can not eat for 3 days before there is even the tiniest concern about your body scavenging useful tissue. If you are overweight at all, its probably more like a week.
And if you don't eat, guess what? Your body learns not to be hungry. And part of the process for IF and fasting in general is to give your digestive tract a rest. And processing fibrous veggies is not easy on your digestive tract (in spite of what the vegan mafia would have you believe).
I have water, iced tea (plain), black coffee, and nothing else.
I did a google search for you on fasting images. Here is what I came up with:
Are you spotting a common theme here???
In PHD it is mentioned that a fat only breakfast is one way to aproach an otherwise 8 hour feeding window. Keep protein and carbs in the 8 hour window with fat outside the window.
It is funny because we now have at least four groups:
Fasting: Water PHD: Fat breakfast Dr. K: Protein Others: Honey and rice cake.
I am thinking that egg yolks might satsify the PHD portion. However in the book this is optional for sure.
I think that the PHD utilized a protein fast in order to trigger autophagy.
So leafy greens (consisting of mostly soluble fiber, which is converted in fat through bacteria) and short/medium-chain fats are allowed to appease hunger and speed up the breakdown of ketone bodies while still triggering autophagy.
Last week in An Anti-Cancer Diet (Sep 28, 2011), I recommended that cancer patients eat 400 to 600 carb calories per day, but combine it with a program of daily intermittent fasting plus longer “ketogenic fasts” and periods of ketogenic dieting or low-protein dieting to promote autophagy.
Hey when I am doing an IF where I am not supposed to eat any food, umm....what are some good recipes for food I can eat? I would stick to Subway, Mcdonalds, or just eat a few plate of biscuts and gravy, maybe wash it down with some grape drink. Dumbass.
