    Doctor Recommended Diet Question

    So doc wants me to do a 3-day rotation of

    1. Fast
    2. Maintenance
    3. Maintenance

    He says every 8th rotation replace the fast day with an eat carelessly day.


    I was unaware that doctors would recommend fasting days to patients except when it dealt with surgery or specific medicines. Anyone see any issues with this diet he wants me to run?

    Interesting, this was done as a Paper not long ago having people eat, basically, unlimited food for 2 days with 1 day fast. The health profile dramatically improved. Cool. Nothing wrong with this whatsoever. I'll see if I can dig up the paper.

    Thanks Bro. I am all for getting thinner. I know at some point the muscle gain and fat loss will cross paths///hopefully this will help it along.

    I'm a big fan of once a week for one time a day eating whatever you want. That way your metabolism is reved up then and when you go back to your diet the next day your metabolism will be reved up and therefore burn more calories etc. and it makes a real strict regiment and diet a little easier and not so much like slavery
