I've been adhering to a Leangains style IF protocol for about 6 months now, and following it regularly for the last 4 out of those 6 (Hence RFing - regularly fasting). It's really blasted away most of the bodyfat I've always had as a skinny-fat dude. I've been in the process of slowly modifying my body comp from skinny and weak, to lean and muscular, and I've made massive progress. Paleo eating has certainly revealed to me that I DON'T have to be a hardgainer, and that with the right attitude, plans and nutrition I can add muscle while burning bodyfat.
With all that said, I know the purported benefit, and replication of ancestral circumstances such as famine, unsuccessful hunts etc., is the ultimate goal of IFing. It has certaqinly worked for me, however, I've been wondering whether or not RFing negates any of those benefits, and if they are, indeed, based on the randomness of the IF protocol?
Anyone care to chime in? Anyone also RFing like me? Have you noticed a plateau/stall of loss of bodyfat? How do you combat this effect?
EDIT: I guess there is some misunderstanding of my question. Let me clarify: I'm wondering if there's a loss of benefit from regular (i.e. scheduled) fasting versus intermittent/random fasting.
