Intermittent Fasting -works for me
 
I don't wanna start a lengthy discussion on whether there is scientific or even anecdotal evidence that supports intermittent fasting as an effective solution for losing fat.

To be honest, I couldnít care less what some academics conclude in their studies or what 3 guys down the gym say. Iím only interested in what works for me and intermittent fasting is doing the job.

Iíve been following IF for 2 months and Iíve lost about 6lbs of lard but reckon Iíve put on at least 3lbs of muscle. Strength is well up and I generally feel good.

Iím following a pretty simple pattern eating only between 1:00pm and 9:00pm daily. This fits well for me as my weakness has always been munching in the evenings, which is now not a problem.

Iím not saying IF is for everyone but just wanted to share my experience with you all.

I have seen a lot of people get results with IF. I have never tried but if so many people say it works, I'm sure it does.

Intermittent fasting is now my method of choice for losing fat or keeping my body fat levels low. I have tried about everything out there (low carb, etc) and nothing else has come close. The research seems to favor it--I did a lot of reading on it before trying it (Eat Stop Eat, the Warrior Diet, etc).
