Hey folks, I have an internet connection so I wanted to let you know my interview with Jimmy More of Living La Vida Low Carb will go up May 24th. A huge thank you to Jimmy for the great interview, it was a huge honor to be a guest on one of the best known podcasts around.
Intermittent Fasting This is a pretty solid interview with EC on the topic of IF. Some folks have asked about some of the actual metabolic changes and mechanisms involved with IF, but my site is not allowed over there, so here is a link to the Intermittent Fasting collection I did several years ago. The first piece was published in July of 2005 and lays out the science behind IF, including the potential of increased lifespan, improved nutrient partitioning (calories go to muscle, not fat) and an enhanced neuro-endocrine response to exercise. The second piece expands on the science introduced in the original work and looks at some applications of IF, I believe Kurtis Bowler is featured in this.
After more than 7 years of thinking about and tinkering with IF it seems that it’s at best a good fit for 50% of folks. Any kind of sleep deficit or excessive stress will make IF ineffectual, possibly even detrimental. If you use the search function on this site you can find more commentary on the topic.
