    I also wanna try this but I was not because I thought fasting will stunt my height..
    Anyone please reply..

  • I’ve heard that in order for your body to not get used to the fasting and stop using fats and instead just lower the BMR you should keep switching from IF to normal eating window for a few weeks and then get back to IF.. is it true?

  • Human discoveries are really unpredictable but I m glad that my teenage bad habit became a proven way to lose some kilos I struggle a lot with weight n this method work on me but no body did encourage it few years back now it is one of the effective ☺️

  • Started my meal plan since last week as below: having 50 ml of coffee with country sugar at 9 am, lunch at 11 am, oil which I am using is coconut n gingely oil, more veggies, as usual 2 small cups of white rice,ending my day with coffee 50 ml again by 4.30…….is this OK to overcome weight…. Please guide me….i am trying to conceive since nine years because of pcos

  • Hello,

    I am Swapnil. I have a question.
    I m structurally within weight limits (Height 5.5 & Weight 64kg) however I have some hard belly fat accumulated over the years. Also I think structure is genetically carried forward. So wanted to know if I will be able to reduce / remove my hard belly fat & gain some muscle mass overall in body with the Intermittent fasting?

  • I was dry fasting a day and half a week for a year (sundays), and one day I felt that I eat too much, and started the second day of dry fasting (thursdays). And this eating once a day. Mondays I gorge 5 plates of food though.
    I can hardly wait for the fast days to be food and water free.
    Shell I keep on doing this, or fast more days in a row!?!?

  • I am 24 years old and my weight is 52 kg.. I have pcod and thyroid problem.. I take thyroid tablet everyday.. Can I start this fasting?

  • Hello there,
    Im 29 yrs old. 5 ft, 8 inch… 68 kg. I want to do IF not for WEIGHT LOSS but for MUSCLE BUILD UP and mental fitness. And I am a vegetarian. I have even seen this queries among my friend circles. Could you plz upload a video with a proper Vegetarian Diet plan addressing these issues. It will help a lot. THANKS.

  • My grandmother and grandfather use to do this is saying dharani parani vrata.
    They had food one day.
    Next day complete fast no water.
    For one month.
    Some people do this for 4 months

  • I just started the Keto Diet for the first time and lost 8# in 7 days. Yes I know it’s mostly water but at least my pants fit better. Now I’ve hit the dreaded “plateau” and, in the past, that led me to quit dieting. This time I sticking to the Keto Diet but adding IF. Great video, well explained and motivational.

  • Has anyone noticed the sweat on in shirt? It gradually increases as the video goes on. That shows how much it takes to create one YouTube video ❤️

  • I lost 19 lbs since last month. It works. I started 16:8 for the first week and went to 20:4. I would go on with OMAD but I’m sticking with 20:4 for the next month until my body can handle it.

  • Wow this is so misleading, 500 calories on fasting days? What the hell is that? Not fasting at all is what that is! You get no health benefits if you consume any calories….duh. I do 42-45 hours REAL fasts on Tuesdays and Thursdays then intermittent fast 16-18 hours on non fasting days…I have stuck to it for a year and a half plus I don’t over eat on the weekends and I’m still losing fat only, while being able to build muscle. This is typical news MEDIA distorting what isn’t mainsteam….YET!

  • Misses the entire point of why AF is effective. It’s the affects AFTER you have lost the weight that it helps, not during the diet per se. It doesn’t screw your metabolism up the way just cutting calories does (which causes the weight to pile back on after you have lost the weight, and it helps control insulin spikes.

  • “Better for those who don’t graze and snack a lot”
    WRONG. These are the people it is suited for! I snack a hell of a lot, and can’t diet normally because I keep opening the fridge every 5 minutes. If I tell myself “I will NOT eat today, I will eat tomorrow, no exceptions” then I put my brain and body in preparation of not needing any will power to stick to it, because I have made 1 single decision, and then not thought about food for the rest of the day.
    I know it is possible to do it because I was once very ill and went a week with no food and hardly any sleep after food poisoning. When I got better I weirdly had lots of energy.

  • Fasting is not trendy it’s been around for centuries. The danger is in your body having to constantly digest food. Furthermore, who wants to refuel their body with junk on days you can eat? From my and others exoerience I have actually started eating better on eat days

  • This is not sustainable because it’s not actually fasting if you are able to eat 400 calories a day�� this whole story is trash… fasting works and is absolutely sustainable… But they can’t sell intermittent fasting and keeps you from running to the doctor so I guess it’s bad right? ��

  • Only lost 31lbs in 10 months?!?! Ummm no not with alternate day fasting, I can lose that in a month and a half with fasting these people are stupid and don’t know their shit

  • So During the time I can eat is it only one meal? Or can I add in one snack during that time period? and because this would mean I’m taking in an extremely less amount of calories than a normal day, do portions and food matter?

    Just figuring out the things okay and not okay to do… and trying to learn about this first. Thanks!

  • Oh boy, we really need Dr. Fung in the comment section, no: on GMA actually, so that they can get their facts straight. This whole thing was screaming „omg, only 400 calories, people are possibly gonna die!“. So wrong. How did our ancestors do it? They had to fast regularly because there weren’t any snacks around to nibble on when the mammoth was eaten up and you hadn’t caught another one yet. Our bodies know how to fast, we just have to let them do it!

  • Thank you very much for your video. But there is a paradox here dear colleague:
    -on one hand we tell our patients that the more we practice physical activities the better it is for the body. And that’s been largely confirmed by years of scientific and empirical proofs.
    -On the other hand we encourage people to fast because ONE study on humans says it’s good!

    What if I say to my patients (especially the ones doing heavy exercise):
    Keep on exercising and fast also!

    What study shows that it’s safe?

    This is a real question that deserve serious attention. It’s not to criticize or trick.

    Thanks for your opinions.

  • This was a hit job they are using modified ADF research to discredit true ADF fasting which is zero calories on fasting days to ensure the production of insulin…SMH shame on you Good Morning America

  • Im so glad to see all the comments defending fasting. Ive found of anything its significantly easier to stick With ADF than any other diet. normal dieting and counting calories had me obsessing and thinking about it constantly and frankly all the prep and logging and counting had me so obsessed with food it was tourturand. It took so much mental energy and i was never satisfied with meals, it burned me out so much i could never stick more than a few days. ADF however Is so much more sustainable. Its so freeing to just. Not have to think about it.

  • You body goes into starvation mode and it’s non-sustainable and you body metabolism slows down and you’re going to put the weight back on and both exercise and diet is key to weight loss and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

  • This is the way humans ate before food became so available, now its dangerous? To my way of thinking you don’t eat “whatever you want” on feast days.

  • This video will misinform the public. Do your own research people. ADF is a wonderful way to detox, repair and get rid of unwanted pounds. Things like this is what fuels the obesity epidemic in America… so sad.

  • This is not ADF, but the 5:2 Fast. They’re highlighting the ” Eat Whatever You Want”, but fail to mention with any of the fasts your body will crave less food and sugar. They tried it. ��������

  • “alternate day fasting doesn’t work! You’re much healthier drinking slim fast shakes or eating Jenny Craig every day.” I swear, the media sh*ts all over anything that won’t fund the capitalist agenda. Fasting is free. It’s healthy. You do less metabolic damage than with calorie cutting on the daily. Once you get used to it, it’s super easy to do. And it works. Also, those who have major weight losses have much better results with their skin because autophogy.

  • I don’t care what they say lol I KNOW this way of eating works. My results speak volumes. And to clarify you do not eat “whatever you want” part of healthy living is eating in moderation.. I do not eat junk food on non fasting days.. that’s just flat out BS. They failed to mention a thing called autophagy also.. look it up if you’re curious!

  • I’ve been overweight since childhood and have tried many types of diets with no succes. I’m doing ADF for 37 days now and I have lost 16 pounds so far. The weight loss is steady, my energy level is up and I’m getting constant compliments about how good I look. It makes me so sad I did not learn about ADF much earlier in my life. I feel like it’s changing my life for the better.

  • no matter what i search this garbage comes up first, very cute of youtube to try and stop me from becoming the best version of myself

  • Not sustainable? It’s more sustainable for me than daily restriction. I would rather fast 3-4 days a week and eat anything I want on other days. Yeah, fasting days suck, but what other diet allows you to go out to a bday party at bdubs and have cake and beer without feeling guilty? Easy choice

  • No, no, no! You shouldn’t eat “whatever you want”. You need to eat healthy on the “eat days”. Not the same old cheeseburger, fries and a milkshake.

  • In 3 weeks have lost 17# on Keto but I didn’t see this video in the beginning. I’ve incorporated IF for the last 2 weeks, going 18/6 to 20/4 on a daily basis. I credit the fasting for not plateauing and for losing 5# last week, at one point 1# per day 4 consecutive days. It works!

  • They said “31 pounds in 10 months!” like it’s something shocking. That’s less than one pound a week slower than the typically recommended “safe” weight loss of 2 pounds per week. These news stories are ridiculous.

  • For someone who has tried dry fasting and water fast for yes. It can be dangerous for someone dry fasting past 3-5 days but he just doing what they telling you to do

  • Hahaha. Of course if you cut calories daily you will lose weight. However alternate day fasting is so so much easier. God send! Mainstream media teaches bad info about diet and nutrition. Keep the public addicted to sugar i suppose.

  • I had ulcerative colitis, thousands of dollars at doctors did not help me, 2 months of one 24 hour dry fast a week and I was cured.

  • LOL, it’s simply not true. I actually had a reduced appetite on my eating days. And it cured my insulin resistance. Yes, initially it requires some self-discipline but you get used to fasting pretty soon. Sure, it’s not for everyone but I think it’s pretty sustainable and better than stuffing your head all day and eating yourself to sick.

  • no one is sayign whatever you want this is eat nothing absolutly nothing for one day then eat what you’re suposed to the next day with of course drinking water to stay hydrated or black coffee whenever. But the idea is get the metabolism to start burning then have high protien very high protien caloric intake make sure it’s not empty calories or carbs

  • now hold on that’s a big issue. it’s actually very scientific what we eat during the days we can eat. It’s high protien very low carbs we need to make sure we understand how our bodies burn calories and most importntly convert Carbohydrates into fat so that when we burn the fat it actually melts off and not stored for another day. so we need ot make sure what we eat helps us by building muscle

  • The overwhelming evidence is that Alternate Day fasting works to lose weight permanently and fasting has been used to successfully cure type 2 diabetes.

  • Fasting is not only about losing weight and calories….you got that wrong right there….people are awaken & you cannot make them fool…not again…have you ever heard of “Autophagy” & various other benefits of fasting….??? i bet you know them all…. you are just following the script..aren’t you?? Main stream media has lost its credibility and it is for the good. Your never ending greed is the cause of your demise. Just look at the number of dislikes…that explains a lot.

  • Hi Dr. Is a limited or period of time to Fasting? Can I stop fasting and get back?for how long can i stop until start back again? BTW awesome video, really appreciated all the information..

  • It’s about how long you don’t put something in your mouth… It’s exercising discipline and letting your body use your fat reserves for fuel. 400 calories on a fast day isn’t a fast and would make it harder.

  • There was like no research for this segment, LOL Sure it’s probably not for everyone….but nothing is. Grazing all day is not a healthy option for a lot of us (especially those of us with slower metabolisms). For a lot of people it’s easier to say I’m not going to eat today, then to try and limit ourselves every day. When you take away not having to think about food from your day it’s actually so much easier. People have been eating like this forever… the only reason we find it so shocking is because the American diet was pushing this whole 6 meals a day crap for so long and making people believe they had to eat more and more, and then we wonder why obesity is so high.

  • Also, it probably is the same speed of weight loss, but proper adf is far far easier on the mind. Nothing feels better than saying “no big deal, I’ll just eat it tomorrow.”

  • 1:00 mainstream news can’t get anything right. Not that I expected anything from this lol.

    Works for me, it’s literally halving your calories! If you do overeat, it’s still cutting your intake by a significant enough margin to lose weight. You’d have to eat A LOT to truly mess this up.

    No wonder normies can’t lose weight, seeing blueshilled nonsense like this.

  • Not one scientific study backs any of his claims. On the contrary many scientific arudies have found to do all of what he said dry fasting doesnt do

  • This new report doesn’t understand the science behind it. They wenty mostly with conventional general rumors and default opinions. Overating on the binge days rarely happens. People find they don’t want to binge and the science gives the reasons why.

  • Ok, this article is totally deceptive: both groups lost weight, but the story did NOT tell viewers that in the study (I know, because I’ve read much about it), the ADF folks MAINTAINED muscle mass this is a HUGE indicator of metabolism health and long-term ability to keep weight off. This ABC video is seriously propaganda. Fake news:( How much did USDA pay ABC to make sure people keep eating white bread 24-7.

    Rant over.

  • It’s easy to avoid confusion by not eating anything during the fasting days, it’s not that hard just one day hardly requires a lot of willpower. It’s what I’ve done and it’s worked very well.

  • Hi I am from England I fast Mondays Thursdays since 15 years ago I have never went to doctor I have never have any sickness everything in my body working perfectly I sleep good I eat good I don’t get stressed I don’t get tired I feel unbelievable good when I fast I am very very very happy Should every doctor advise the patient to fast twice a week this is the best medicine on the planet

  • Appreciate Video! Apologies for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you considered Dinanlinson Amazing Look Approach (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for learning how to quickly lose weight minus the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my cousin at last got cool results with it.

  • Thanks for the Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard about Dinanlinson Amazing Look Approach (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is an awesome one off guide for learning how to quickly lose weight without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my friend Sam got amazing results with it.

  • Such misinformation. The right way is to eat wholesome healthy food whenever you eat not EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT. Such BS. I have lost 3kg in 10 days and I have never felt m ore energetic, my mind has never been clearer and I feel great! Shove your misinformation up your ‘you know where’ abc & co.

  • I agree on meditation part. Not only that you need it, you have to remind yourself every day too! Start by asking yourself “why” you wanna lose weight. Make a list or just keep asking whys until you don’t know what to answer.

  • May god have mercy on he who lead his people astray.dry fast is one of the most powerful fast of them all.which you are putting your body under the subjection of god for man shall not like by bread �� alone but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of god?

  • Fasting is in the bike, did a word study in my KJV bible, fasting is being humble before God, and the Lord blesses in so many ways. Science is not catching up on it, they already know, they just want people ignorant.

  • Dry fasting must be really beneficial or helpful for the mainstream news to attack so hard. I’m completing day 2 of my dry fast and I’ve done some light exercise. 46 years old and feeling great. Dr Boz (20 year Internal Medicine physician) on autophagy (the main benefit of dry fasting) https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2016/press-release/

  • This is a lie, you know how I know? Because this my third day on a dry fast I strangely feel just fine. Like I thought I would be near dead according to the experts but I have energy. Alot. My mouth is dry and yes I am thirsty and hungry but I’m not dying and feel great lost so far 25, yes 25lbs in just four days what other diet, workout plan, medicine will give you the same results. I have literally taken metformin just for weight loss, phentermine too. The only one I haven’t taken is Adderal for weight loss but yes I have even taken specific anti depressants for their weight loss abilities. Wellbutrin to name one. So yes, big pharmaceutical rep continue telling me how your drugs are much better for me yet couldn’t give me these results in literally less than a week.

  • That a headline: “… putting you in danger?” You people are losers. So many studies have shown SO MANY benefits to fasting and you totally slanted your report to talk about how hard it is and cherry picking studies to focus on negatives while ignoring many other studies that cover incredible positives. It is so obvious that you are serving the pharma industry. You “news” people are really shmucks.

  • Of course a state sanctioned drug dealer (doctor) hates it….he cannot make those sweet sweet pharma bucks from people abstain from putting all kinds of poisons in their body….

  • Watch someone who dry fasts and experiments with it regularly and how he is perfectly healthy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81a10sZ4duU

    This punk azz biotch doctor doesn’t give any explanation…like most POS big pharma prostitutes.

  • Fasting is bad. ��Stuffing your face with uneccessary calories “everyday” is good.�� Remember we gotta keep the doctor, the surgeon, the radiologist, the coroner, the morgue and big pharma paid.����☠️

  • I went on a dry fast for 3 days on and off for 3 months and ate all fruit/some veggies for 3 months and I told absolutely no one! A month went by and everybody was complementing me telling my “skin is glowing” and they asked me what was I doing and told them I just used water to wash my face, lol.

  • Ligit I’ve lost 20 lbs dry fasting 36 hours one a week in only 6 weeks. Theres nothing wrong with it, as long as you get enough nutriets and water before and after the fast and you break the fast with something like coconut water followed by a cup of regular water, it is completly fine.

  • Why would you not drink water? Stupidest thing I ever heard! I have done many fasts even prolonged extended fasts but never EVER a dry fast! Your body needs water �� even salt minerals! ����‍♂️

  • Globalistagenda.org they don’t want you to be healthy and live longer. Every person in TV is in on it and they don’t even know it. Plenty of medical proof all forms of fasting works. Fake media strikes again!

  • People tend to push to far! No food no water is good! But no more then 24 hour! Just to give your body output a Chance! Not to become a forsaken

  • Thank you doctor for your encouragement and research. Fasting may well be a form of disease prevention also,. even cancer!!! These research studies will continue to shed light on the many benefits of fasting. Keep up the good work you do.

  • I hope I`d discovered this particular earlier! I would`ve lost 14 pounds years ago. I did not alter my diet program whatsoever or work out. It only reduce your urge for food to it with out sacrificing your well being. Find a right guide is not easy, you can discover on Google. Weight program’s name is Peyton Huno†az
    good luck

  • What a CLOWN. 0 useful actual information. Your body makes it’s own water to clean itself. This is actual health terrorism. DO ANY FAST ITS NATURAL FOR THE BODY.

  • WOW! i am so happy that i can walk myself again, madidaherbalcenter.wee bly/ com herbal medicine just cured me of my Parkinson’s disease.

  • Dry-fasting has been fantastic for me. I’ve been dry-fasting for over four years. I’ve never felt this good before. I quit alcohol, coffee, medicine. I am happier and more productive than ever. I’ve done over 120 of 40-hour dry-fasts. Many 72 hours. I’ve done a few 5 days. two 7 days one 9 days and one of 10 days of complete dry-fasting. I never had any problem. Now I am doing the stair pattern of dry fasting which consists of dry-fasting one day, eating one day, then dry-fasting two days eating two days then three then four. Now I am on day six of the seventh step. Dry-fasting is the best investment I’ve ever made in life. For me, it cured pretty much all my health problems. I think better, I make better decisions in life and spiritually I’ve made enormous progress. Oh, I forgot to say. It made me save a ton of money. I don’t see a doctor anymore. I fast between two to three months a year. I save a ton of money on food and everything that goes around it. The best part is that I feel so much better than when I was eating three times a day every day. On the days I eat, I only eat one meal sometimes two. I do intermittent dry-fasting. I work, I exercise, I play music, I write without eating or drinking anything, and at night I have my meal. I go through the day to earn my meal. It has been working amazingly well for me.

  • I started dry fasting a year and a half ago and was 200 lbs in 9th grade, I have since lost 45 lbs and have a 6 pack don’t listen to these morons

  • Make HOMER SIMPSON videos!

    Homer knows NOTHING about the chemistry of the body, so just tell him in PLAIN language what he is to do on an INTERMITTENT FAST:

    Start. 10 pm.

    Get up at 10am.

    Have a mug of coffee!

    12am have a mug of Green tea!

    2 pm. have a glass of water with a tablespoon of ACV.

    3 pm have a glass of water with a pinch of Sea Salt!

    4 pm. Break-fast!

    Have a protein meal.

    Eat different types of protein every other day stake chicken fish.

    Eat artichoke, spinach, and broccoli.

    Supplement with Boron 9mg CoQ-10 600mg vitamin B12. Seaweed.

    DOESN’T SHE MAKE A HEALTHY CORPSE!

  • I dry fasted once for 2 days (almost a year ago now) and my knees’ and my hemorrhoids’ problems just disappeared for over a 6 months period after that dry fast. They eventually came back, but the intensity of the pain now is way much lower than before the fast. Now I am preparing myself through a series of intermittent fasting to make one more dry fast, but this time I’ll make it for a 3 day time period. This so called “doctor” works for Big Pharma and the last thing they want is people to become healthy and to stop buying their useless and dangerous chemicals they call medications.

  • I have seen incredible results with both dry and water fasting. I personally find dry fasting easier, I don’t seem to get as hungry and the healing of old wounds is unbelievable. It’s sad to see people with little or no knowledge of fasting out there warning against it. More people should know about fasting, it places the body in an optimal state for healing and many people have thrown away their prescription meds for good as a result. And oh ya, it’s free.

  • Wait a minute….. There are animals as well as people who live in tribes who go without water for days sometimes and they’re just fine.

    I don’t trust doctors because they stick to a certain script.

    Nothing outside of their teachings they don’t consider their like a religion.

    KETO AND INTERMITTENT FASTING FOR LIFE!

    On day 4 of this quick week fast. I have done 100 fasts to include six 7 day fasts this far. Energy goes UP, ketones go UP, blood sugar goes DOWN, weight goes DOWN.

    I’ve been off my 20 year rollercoaster of type 2 diabetic and cholesterol meds since day 1 of keto and IF 2 1/2 years ago.

    My family of 5 eat keto/OMAD (50, 47, 20, 20, 17)

    Besides marrying my husband (and homeschooling), that was THE SINGLE BEST DECISION OF. MY. LIFE.

  • The human body just the same as with animals was not designed to eat every day! The stomach cannot digest food quickly it takes time and if you eat everyday it is working almost 24/7 and that is not good! Because when your stomach is working and creating acid some of that overabundance gets into your blood and tissues destroying your organs, heart, and circulatory system! The reason why people in poor countries do not suffer from heart disease, diabetes, high rates of Alzheimers and dementia, high blood pressure and all the other ailments that modern societies do. They suffer from parasites!

    Animals/pets too in modern society now suffer from diseases they never suffer from in the wild, dogs and cats now die from diabetes, heart disease, cancers, etc. simply because they eat too often! In the wild an animal would find food here and there and then go without for periods of time. In the past people didn’t have the abundance of food or the availability of food as they do now, and they also did not suffer from the high rates of cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases, and brain tumors, etc. that plague societies now! Alternate day fasting can change all that as it gives out stomachs a break they so desperately need and that is when our immune systems kick-in and do their jobs to repair and correct any issues that otherwise lead us into illness.

    And this is a proven scientific and biological fact anyone can study, if you can get past the leftist propaganda that feeds corporate greed and the medical mafia establishments who only wish to keep us sick and a host of their parasite trillion dollar Pharmaceutical industry! They don’t cure people they only maintain their diseases for profit!

  • Instead what you should do is get unnecessary vaccines, visit your doctor so he could prescribe ever pill under the sun, oh and don’t forget about all the gmo foods you should be eating!

  • Citation for the study? I’ve read multiple studies that showed ADF did in fact improve cardiovascular health and helps prevent heart disease. Also, ADF is generally more sustainable when you do true ADF, and don’t eat any calories on your fasting days because it is easier to put eating off until tomorrow and not have to think about eating at all that day, than it is to get a taste of food and then force yourself to stop even though your brain is firing signals telling you to keep eating. ADF is one of the best methods for getting insulin under control as well because it teaches your body to run off your fat stores rather than glucose, and you don’t have as many I insulin spikes, and it reduces your risk/progression of insulin resistance. There are innumerable benefits not mentioned in this segment. Shame on them.

  • Yeah right.. I disagree. The government just want us to continue poisoning our bodies so they can make a profit. (I’m not speaking on my Christian beliefs but many studies has proven that fasting is good for us)

  • I am getting fat every time I go for caloric restriction and eat several times a day. Fasting and alternarive day fasting helps me on the opposite, I lose definitely fat even if my weight is not Changing too much. +my skin is healthy and cleaner

  • Dry fasting one of best things to do. But not more than 20 hours. It reduce weight. Insulin resistance. Heal body. Increase testosterone by huge amount. Its acutually doing a body reset

  • I LOVE how all the comments show people can think for themselves and don’t believe this for a minute. People all around are waking up more and more and aren’t trusting “authorities” good for us.

  • I am about to start keto tomorrow. I did it a year ago and only lost 15lbs in 4 months. I was tired all the time, constipated and my hair and nails were brittle. I keep hearing that I did it wrong. I did buy the shakes and I’m hoping to replace two meals in a day to simplify my macro ratios. Has anyone else used shakes?

  • Had the weird feeling like I was on drugs earlier, a pleasant high. Been on this keto with IF routine for one month, seems like I’m just starting to get used to it, suffered a lot with insomnia, constipation and stress for most of the first month.

  • I figured out the easiest way not to eat outside my 8-hour eating window while Intermittent Fasting. I take my teeth out after dinner at 6 PM, and I don’t put them back in until my first meal at 10 AM the next morning. lol

  • I’m a dancer and ever since my dance classes stopped I have gained like 5 pounds and I’m not happy with it so I am going to try it

  • Hey guys I started keto and 16/8 today wish me good luck buddies��
    I will update my results soon��

    Day-1
    Breakfast:black tea and……2 biscuits(do not eat it )
    Lunch:Pumpkin 3pieces and sprats
    Wait for dinner

  • I’m doing 24:1 so I only eat for 1 hour a day from 4pm-5pm (after I come back from the gym) but I have a protein shake before I go to the gym because I need some energy after fasting for nearly 24 hours so does that protein shake break the fast technically?

  • I have 100 kg (220 lbs) weight. My metabolism is also very slow.
    If i try IF for a day, can you tell me an approx of how much weight will i lose?

  • Never hurt the Easterners. Oh these American Doctors. They don’t want you to know that the body heals itself. He is lying because he doesn’t want to loose that money.

  • Can you do 16:8 but different times? Some nights I have to eat dinner later therefore I normally start my fast later. I still do the 16 hours I just don’t eat until later the next day. Can I do that?

  • Hard to believe you do not discuss optimal hydration. THE SNAKE DIET. watch 10 hrs of it. HYDRATION SET POINT.

    DONT SLEEP AS WELL BECAUSE WE USE 30%energy digesting. We have more, energy.

  • i’m a week into a 16:8 IF, working out 5 days a week but not limiting my diet. (living at home and eating what is made for the household limits my food options and also being at school for 75% of my days also limits my options.) I hope to come back to this comment a few pounds lighter.

  • binge eating after fasting is not true your not gonna be very hungry once your body is used to fasting and your gonna be more energized

  • There’s no way in hell you can tell me you go 19 hours with out eating anything and don’t feel super hungry. Sounds like anorexia to me. Eat when you are hungry that’s how the body works best. Our body will ask us for food when it wants it.

  • My family members are big fans of Keto, but I prefer IF 18/6 because you don’t have to restrict carb intake. I eat healthy foods and include meat but I can also eat things like apples and bananas.
    So far I have lost 21 pounds since October. I need to lose 39 more

  • Sir i have one question dat what should we have during rest 16hrs like black coffee, lemon juice or what else? Iike m eating from 2pm till 10pm.. So please suggest me��

  • Just through simply fasting for 16 hours everyday without being strict about what u eat will bring a HUGE range of health benefits.

  • I haven’t lost weight, mindless snackin is my issue IF has helped me with my stomach issues I am not bloated, and this forces me to make good food decisions I eat a good lunch and dinner and honestly I eat a childs plate each time after which time I cant eat anything else because i feel sooo full that sometimes I eat one big meal because my stomach issues can only handle One big meal… I dont think its a weight loss long term cure but for those of us who deal.with IBS, Cholitis, and gastritis it really does help..

  • I used to do 18/6 and I plan on doing 20/4. The fasting lasted for 3 months and I lost 5kg. Yeah I have really stubborn fat. I am 75kg and 170.5cm.

  • Could I substitute the walk for a trip to the gym. I usually go 5 times a week and spend about 1 hour 30 minutes. Should i still go for the walk? Could i go for like a 30 minute 5km run?

  • Omad for life! No longer a diabetic after taking useless diabetic medications for years. I no longer trust most doctors as most don’t know a damn thing!

  • I try to get most of my calories in by 4:00pm (at the latest) and, after that, it is mint or chamomile tea. I find that by capping it all by a certain hour, I can eat more calories without gaining weight.

  • I plan to start IF but I don’t want to lose weight and I’m concerned that it might make me scrawny. I need to get my insulin levels down.

  • The longer you dry fast the better. God, Jesus, those in Heaven and angels permanently dry fast. Our bodies are imperfect so why put impure food and fluids into ourselves to prolong this.

  • Presented very poorly!! It does work…just eat a nourishing meal when you do eat OMAD and make sure your vitamins, nutrients & minerals are topped off…that’s the key to not starving, not being hungry or craving!!

  • No Keto diet at all? Did you lost all that weight including fruits in your diet? Just Appling intermittent fasting? Asking because I just started with both, fasting as you but also Keto…including fruits will allow me to loss weight I mean just fasting? Please answer to my question��

  • Still a little confused on how this works. I started 2 days ago, for the 16-8. I am getting mixed answers, so is it eat only 2 meals within the 8 hour window without snacks? Like for example I had a half of a roastbeef sandwich at noon, then had a muffin a few hours later, then a greek yogurt, and then ate the other half of my sandwich before 8 pm. Am I doing it wrong?

  • is really good to hear on 2019 the research has found that fast is good for health. have you ever thought about ramadan? muslim fast for 30 days some of countries fast 22 hour a day in ramadan is about 660 hours in a hall ramdan? muslim new this information 14000 years ago. if people read Quoran they find a lot health information that science has recently discover. people were insulting muslim about fasting in ramadan by call them crazy starving them self but nowdays people fast to reverse diabetic to have a good health. prophet mohamed peace up on him mention to fast monday and thursday every week also said fast you will get a good health. so fasting for 30 days will regenerate your body cells
