Hey Shawn et al,
I’ve recently IM’ed with you over Instagram and seeing your request to share benefit stories from intermittent fasting and time restricted eating patterns I’m glad to share my story.
I’m a 33 years old entrepreneur based in Israel. I have several hi-tech businesses.
I have been doing 18:6 Intermittent Fasting for 1 year straight now coupled with 3 weekly resistance training days and I’ve experienced great results. IF regulates blood glucose levels, helps ketone formation, aid reducing calorie intake, allows HSL and Leptin to operate more easily due to lack of consistent insulin secretion and is inducing an easier recovery and less overloading on beta cells.
My basis of the diet is paleo, and my tendencies are towards the ketogenic and low-carb diet, however I have chosen to incorporate carb loading and strategic post exercise carb feeding to maximize muscle gains, but apart that I’m definitely learning towards a low carb, moderate to high protein and high fat diet. I’ve usually eating 3 meals per day and I don’t snack between meals to maximize my IF approach.
