    Intermittent fasting? Is it like having less food often rather than a typical breakfasts and lunches?

    I don't think it's about having less food often - more about going longer without food - or that is my take on it, but please don't listen to me, listen to someone who knows of what they speak

    Yup, Piskie is spot on. Intermittent fasting is simply extended periods without food. Assume you're already fasting for at least eight hours a day while you sleep, and take it from there. You'll find a lot of information on fasting in the forums and Mark's articles, so I won't go into too much detail on the whys and wherefores here. The most common are either going 24 hours without food once or twice a week, or going 16 hours without food on a daily basis (half of which is spent asleep, remember), limiting your eating window to 8 hours a day.
    Went primal for the weight loss, stayed for the quality of life!

    Hi from sunny yorkshire. Mark did a piece on fat burner or sugar burner " If you can handle missing meals and are able to go hours without getting ravenous and cranky (or craving carbs), you’re likely fat-adapted."

    Hello from Oxfordshire! It'd be real nice to have a UK-specific local board that we can use to share paleo-friendly supplier information!

    There's a bit of one here.
    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
