#148 Intermittent Fasting or Time Restricted Eating
Intermittent Fasting or Time Restricted Eating.
Yes, we can get great results watching the clock instead of counting calories but... most people are doing it the wrong way around. This is why we get great results to start with - because we have generally reduced calorie intake by putting time rules around our food.
However long term the effect on women can be disastrous. Our metabolic rate slows down, we lose muscle tissue instead of body fat we get lethargic, our energy levels plummet and the power in our workouts decreases.
Instead of eating in the morning when our metabolism is high, we tend to backload the day when our metabolism is low. This actually messes with sleep and metabolic processes like fat burning.
Our goal should be to front-load the day with great nutritious choices especially around our training when our food is pulled into our muscles rather than stored around our middle. Then we should have dinner earlier to allow a 13-hour water-only fast until breakfast time.
This can be challenging when you want to eat later with the family or aren't hungry in the morning but this is not insurmountable - give it time and your metabolism will come up you will feel hungry in the morning meaning that you have been burning fat overnight. Another tactic is to eat a bigger lunch and a lighter evening meal with the family.
This way of eating still gives you all the advantages of health and longevity from time-restricted eating and fasting without fatigue, muscle loss and downregulation of metabolic rate.
