What is Intermittent Fasting

How Intermittent Fasting can help you?

Most people eat on average 15 hours a day. To be clear anything but water is considered to be eating.

What’s the Best Intermittent Fasting ratio?

Eat for only 8 to 10 hours per day. 8 hours is best for endurance.

That’s 16 hours of fasting per day.

To ensure success build up to 16, don’t go from zero to hero is one day.

Worried about that birthday party coming up?

Cheating 1 or 2 days per week is fine. But not more than 2 times per week.

Fasting for Endurance

I have never run 100 kms before!

I need all the help I can get, enter, Fasting for Endurance

From the research it seems fasting for 16 and eating inside a 8 hour window is the best for endurance.

So the first week is in the bag, I fell short of the 16 hours a couple of times. I was expecting to do a lot worse than that.

I felt my short term fitness was lacking a lot. But I felt a lot stronger on the longer run of 13 kms than normal.
