    Ramadan

    Hey guys,

    I start fasting at the end of the week, an suggestion on how to best diet while fasting... I cant eat from sunrise to sunset (6am to 6 pm). I know with atkins or high fat diets you dont have to eat regular.

    Also once its over how do i jump start my metoblism.

    don't go too crazy and worry, if you have been doing everything right uptill now, it really shouldn't effect you........ i went 2 days w/ no water, food, yeah it sucked... but all my measurements were the same...... weight came back instantly........

    Do a keto diet so your body eats your fat for fuel. If at all possible, sleep from 6am-6pm

    thanks for your educated and helpful reply.

    GenX, fasting is tough, and obviously it's not optimal diet...but it's not about that. doing it takes dedication and belief, and i can respect the hell out of that.

    my only advice is to not go crazy the second the sun sets. Don't all out pig-out just because you can - it is what your body will want, but the way that your metabolism will reset based on the day-long fast, you'll store as much as you can as fat -- try to get in the nutrients you need as best you can -- and make sure you're up before sunrise to eat breakfast -- my roommate wakes up ED at 4:00am (i believe) to get something in him, then he goes back to bed until it's time to get ready and leave.

    and like SC said...there's been a few posts on this - he said there was one a few weeks back, and i seem to recall one from last year's ramadan about the same thing.

    good luck man.
