Over the last few years, I have been studying, utilizing and writing about intermittent fasting and its potential benefits. I credit Martin Berkhan and Ori Hofmeklar’s work for sparking my initial interest. From there, I spent a lot of time combing through studies and playing around with different ways to implement periods of fasting. The research and results proved too hard for me to ignore.
I became so intrigued with Intermittent Fasting that I started to compile an E-Book on it. I wanted to show people how you could benefit from fasting, from fat loss to longevity to improving blood markers. My goal was to present the research and help people understand the underlying mechanisms. I also wanted to help dispel a lot of the misconceptions that seem to surround intermittent fasting today.
If you are familiar with my work through Elitefts or Muscle and Fitness, you may have heard me discuss this project and have wondered where the hell it is. I never stopped working on this, I just know that it will never truly be “finished”. I continue to follow the latest research, improve my protocol and further my knowledge. The more I learn and the deeper I delve, the more I realize that I don’t know. I could continue to add to this for years to come, but it can’t help anyone if it’s just sitting on my Desktop.
I am going to release bit by bit of my rather unfinished, unorganized book. I hope that these articles help people understand what fasting is and what is isn’t. I will never claim this to be the only way or even the best way to diet. This is simply ONE way that you can change your nutritional habits. I have successfully used forms of fasting to help bodybuilders, powerlifters, athletes and regular people looking to shed fat or improve their health. Hopefully, at the end of this series, you understand the nature of intermittent fasting, how it works and can successfully implement it into your routine.
