    Mark never really says if fasting causes weight gain, i don't think. I read somewhere eating after fasting causes weight to come back even more and worse.

      Carbs are not the devil.

      Just do the potato diet. Seriously.

        Not true at all. I IF regularly and haven't experienced any of the sort of "starvation" effects that people keep talking about. It's more about keeping weekly caloric totals at a reasonable level than it is counting calories every single day.

        Besides, it's only going to come back worse if you start binging as a result. Oh sure, if you have any sort of eating disorders then I'd never recommend fasting, but as long as that's not an issue, you'll be fine. Seriously, hundreds of IFing primalites can't ALL be wrong. Give it a chance before you knock it.

So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          I don't think anyone said they were?

          I know tons of people around here who eat copious amounts of carbs but still incorporate IFing as a part of their routine.

            I was responding to his post above where he says he gets all his carbs from salad...

            Also in the context of losing the most fat in a week, nothing will beat the potato diet.

              Potato diet plus one meal a day IFing?

                No.

                My very first post i said there is nothing wrong with IFing as long as he is getting enough calories. But his thing is he wants to get as much fat off as possible. Starving will take some fat off along with muscle and a lot of water.

                    I have a question now, what's the difference if i eat enough at one sitting and fast the rest of the day compared to eating throughout the day, but same amount of calories?

                      I find calorie restriction within the primal framework of healthy food and moderate exercise to be a terrific way to lose weight. If you are going to calorie restrict for more than a week, I've found that setting aside one or two days a week where I eat maintenance calories keeps me from going into hibernation mode. I've also found that if I hit a plateau of more than two weeks without weight lost, eating one day of about 2000 calories jump starts the weight loss again.

                      That's what works for me. I have no idea if it works for anyone else on the planet.

                            You raise insulin when you snack, which impedes weightloss. Best having no snacks

                                If you eat once a day you give your body a chance to relax and rest between meals. It takes a lot of energy to digest a meal so your body appreciates the break. It a) gives you a chance to enter into fat burning mode, while sparing lean mass, it b) probably engages you in a little bit of autophagy which is the body detoxing itself by killing off bad/sick cells and c) fasting has been proven to extend lifespan in multiple studies of traditional Asian monks and other populations that regularly fast for a variety of reasons.

                                Don't believe the whole aging hype. Long term caloric RESTRICTION might age you, but we're not doing that. We're eating to normal caloric levels over the course of a week or so and just allowing our bodies to enter fat-burning mode by giving them a chance to rest between meals.

                                Oh, and Brad Pilon is a HORRIBLE example of the aging assertion because he does NOT eat primal. Yes he fasts, but... He eats grains, sugars, bad oils, and suffers all of the effects from them. You're hopefully eating much, MUCH healthier than he is.
