I eat once a day.  I also skip every third day.  Eat once a day for two days, drink liquids for the third.

I watch how many calories I eat, eat healthier (no fast food or soda), and limit the amount of sugar (mostly in my coffee).

I have lost a lot of weight, some muscle, but mostly stored fat.  My face is so thin I am unrecognizable by people who last saw me only a couple years ago.  Diabetes runs in my family, and the last couple blood tests from my doctor showed AMAZING numbers.  My doctor can't believe I completely turned around my health, just by limiting the amount of food I eat.

 

 

 

If you are looking to improve your health, research a little bit more and ask your doctor if it's safe for you.

Excellent videos man! I especially liked the discussion of the hormone/chemistry issue in regulating fat/hunger. I will be interested in how this is working out for you,

I now weigh 180 lbs, and I find that my knees don't hurt and my back also stopped hurting.  My motorcycle also gained a second in the quarter mile!

Once a man can regulate his "hunger" he can easily lose weight without increasing exercise.  When I feel hunger, I just tell myself that I am just feeling my stomach shrink, and that I SHOULD be feeling that.  Too long ago I would eat until I felt full.  I now tell myself that full feeling is my body telling me I ate too much.

I still drink beer, just in more moderation.  On my no food day I can have 2 or 3 Coors Lites as they are 105 calories each.  Coffee with cream / no sugar for breakfast, liquid bread for dinner.  I am consuming less calories overall and wasting less food.  I rarely eat out anymore and the money savings are diverted to fuel for the motorcycles.

Good thread, the power of intermittent fasting to repair one's body and to reduce health problems needs to talked about more. Alzheimer's runs on my family on the paternal side. That I had a 50% chance of developing the same syndrome bothered me a lot. When I read recent research about how it is now considered an organ specific type of diabetes and how effective intermittent fasting is at reversing diabetes, I became motivated to lost 50lbs and return to my college level weight. Limiting your caloric intake to a few hundred on the fast day is a good idea, from what I have read.

I also discovered that eating only one meal a day was quite achievable. It makes it very easy to avoid eating out, as well.

Thanks for the topic as I wondered if other men did this! 

I also have that eating habit.  I have always believed that early man was happy to have a meal a day like all other animals.

This three meal a day thing has to be a development of a post agricultural revolutionary consumerist stand on food consumption. 

At my heaviest I was 238lbs  I lost 53lbs in 3 months using that method.  I would drink  32 oz of water before my evening meal  causing me to eat less while feeling full.

I do sometimes have some fruit or juice thereof  in the mornings  but only water or sport drink at lunch.

Now I have a need to hear my stomach growl  at least once a week.  Something an overweight person seldom if ever  hears. Yet they testify as to being hungry. 

although I am eating more vegetables than ever in my life I still must have meat.

A vegan is defined as that man in the village  who never learned to hunt or fish.

and sushi  is called bait in Texas.

Making language fluid, flowing like a river, yet precise and pointed as a dirk, contradicts the socialistic purpose of language and makes for a wonderful verbal dance—a linguistic martial art with constant parries that hone the weapon that is the two edged sword of my mouth.

😊 Thank you, that is some excellent timing and a very welcomed call, Old Buck!

The videos are very informative and interesting and I learned useful things about Ghrelin, the hunger hormone, black coffee, keton bodies, exercise and intermittent fasting.

Most important to me tho is to have the overview of/your experiences with - and the background to the time intervals. That is key for me to give this a go, beyond of what I did so far.

I have a blood sugar issue.

When the body says eat, I have to eat. Fasting would see me in a world of misery pretty quickly.

People with Diabetes need to be very careful, so I do recommend talking with your doctor first.  Aussie, very good point.  Tis is one issue that really needs to be thought about before starting ANY diet.  I think the main point for this diet is getting used to eating less.  If you eat less than the amount of calories you naturally burn then you will lose weight.  Eating smaller portions throughout the day will lower your total caloric intake and allow you to keep your insulin levels in check.  I had done that too, and successfully lost weight.  

Now I eat breakfast usually, but sometimes it is lunch.  I try to keep a 2-1 schedule, eat once for two days (sometimes 3) then one day with just water, plain coffee, tea, etc.   For one week, two days are set aside for fasting, usually Wednesday and Sunday.

I have had days where I ate breakfast and lunch, but smaller portions each.  I limit my calories to about 1200 maximum a day.  At that level I lose weight.  If I eat once a day, every day, at 1200 calories I easily maintain my current weight.  

There are a few variations on timing with this diet, but I did not research that before starting.  I winged it and just started my own schedule.  It seems that when I follow the schedule, I lose weight.  I eat too much (or twice a day for a couple days) then I start to gain the weight back.  The body tends to stay in fat burning mode until you eat too much or greatly vary the timing.  It is really easy for the body to go back to fuel storage mode.  

I was taking some medication that screwed the diet up and no matter what I was gaining weight.  I stopped the medication after gaining back 30 lbs.  At 210 lbs. my motorcycle jacket wasn't fitting and my face was starting to balloon again!  That was two months ago, and now I am back at my target weight!

I do not regularly exercise, that is outside of my employer's fast paced production environment.

By the way Travis, that is a great homeopathic diet for your massage specialist.  Great way to empower them towards weight loss!

Considering the timing and winging in on this and viewed in the light of this thread´s presentation: I gotta say, that I did intuitively for some years now elaborate slowly but surely on an intermittent diet `light´, meaning, I would only do it on consecutive days off from work (which I sometimes do have at my disposal) and not to an extent of a daily 17-20 hours without nutrient (fat, carbs or protein) intake.

My goal herein is not to loose any weight 🙃 I do this for the body own autoregulation/autorepair, for cell-recycling/rejuvenation and reasons of homoeostasis, like getting the work of organ-systems (immune, hormonal, digestive, sensual, mental and the motion apparatus) enhanced, tweaked, focused and fine tuned.

The body cannot autoregulate, when constantly stuffed with food. Digestion is hard work for it, but, when done use-/needlessly (achieving nothing but the production of costly dung) it is an occupation that will degrade quality of life, because of misbehavior in the face of abundance.

 

I share Harpomyson´s adoption about the early man´s diet and the misdemeanor of a diet pattern which would make peasants and plebs numb all day and thus easy to control, if not dumb like bread.

 

If you wanna do this or something familiar: heed the warnings and only do this in arrangement with your doctor/under expert supervision.

I've switched to eating high fat meats recently like beef, lamb, pork along with vegetables and just food as it appears in nature and no processed or refined food.

I cut out refined carbs like rice, bread, pasta, grains, sugar. I guess it's similar to a keto diet as my body will have switched to burning fat for energy rather than burning glycogen. If you don't spike your insulin with fast releasing carbs the body switches to burning fat as an energy source. Eat processed carbs = release insulin = hungry again = more money for food companies.

One of the things that's happened is that I've just naturally fallen into eating just once a day and I don't feel that hungry the rest of the time so it's just like I'm fasting naturally. My weight is dropping down fast and I will probably be in sixpack shape by summer at this rate without too much effort.

Exactly I tried but failed---yesterday I went into Ketoacidosis. But I'm still alive.

@The Evil Genius: Very good addition to the fray. Do not let this harm or kill you.

 

(taken from Wikipedia of all sources):

 

Mechanism (of Ketoacidosis)

Ketoacidosis is a pathological metabolic state marked by extreme and uncontrolled ketosis. In ketoacidosis, the body fails to adequately regulate ketone production causing such a severe accumulation of keto acids that the pH of the blood is substantially decreased. In extreme cases ketoacidosis can be fatal.

Ketoacidosis is most common in untreated type 1 diabetes mellitus, when the liver breaks down fat and proteins in response to a perceived need for respiratory substrate. Prolonged alcoholism may lead to alcoholic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis can be smelled on a person's breath. This is due to acetone, a direct by-product of the spontaneous decomposition of acetoacetic acid. It is often described as smelling like fruit or nail polish remover. Ketosis may also give off an odor, but the odor is usually more subtle due to lower concentrations of acetone.

Management

Treatment consists most simply of correcting blood sugar and insulin levels, which will halt ketone production. If the severity of the case warrants more aggressive measures, intravenous sodium bicarbonate infusion can be given to raise blood pH back to an acceptable range. However, serious caution must be exercised with IV sodium bicarbonate to avoid the risk of equally life-threatening hypernatremia.

 

 

There are other complications that may or may not arise, depending on a man´s health. Functional or degenerative conditions of the digestion tract come to mind. I do not want to spook you, but such an effectful diet/fast could even make gallstones start moving towards places, where they might inflict shitloads of pain.

Stranger things have happened. Be aware and safe.

Amen Matcha---I've been down bicarbonate of soda to ease things...the smell was a dead give away. I was sitting at the computer sniffing saying to myself: WHAT is that smell? Then you get dizzy and nauseous.

Holy Cow, The Evil Genius! I really thought, you were only kidding us, because we left that out of the equation until then and there was no mention of it in the videos, too. I feel rightfully bad about this, now, as I had the duty to tell you in advance, what this acetone smell is signalling, so, what a ketoacidosis is and how it works. Blimey!

The gravity of the diet and intermittent fasting as presented in this thread should not be underestimated in any way.

This is something normally only monks or holy people would do after having trained themselves and meditated for years in advance.

These men were not bumming around and this is as real as it gets, so be cautious. Find your balance.

I for one and for now am working on stabilizing a 20 to 4 schedule. Meaning: I have a time window of 4 hours to eat (or drink liquids that contain fat, protein or sugar), then I do not have a base nutrient (f,p,s) intake for 20 hours. This translates as follows: when I ate in between 14:00 and 18:00 the digestion will take place roughly until 22:00, from when the sobriety of the inner organs will trigger auto-regulation and -repair programs selected for me by the immune system (read: in order of their gravity). This will go on during my sleep (while at the time resulting in a long sleep full of vivid dreams) and up until 14:00 the next day, so I have an effective time window of 16 hours for auto-regulation each day.

I do not even have every third day as a fast day, I do not even limit my intake to just one meal a day (I tried it out Tuesday and decided to stay with the 20-4 schedule for the time being). That would be much too fast/sudden a change in my eyes. I am happy as I could be, having changed "only" my diet, so far.

 This does not bode well with the Wisconsin supper club diet and Brandy old fashion diet my doctor put me on.

Old Buck, does it still count as one meal per day, when it takes one four hours to finish it? With best regards.
