Intermittent Fasting 21 Day Experiment

Intermittent FastingI have four core rules when it comes to how I approach my nutrition:

  1. I like easy & quick (no complicated or time consuming recipes, eating plans, etc).
  2. I like to focus on things I can stick with indefinitely (no gimmicks, or weird fad diets allowed)
  3. Must fit in with real life (I don’t want to feel restricted, or look like a weirdo in public)
  4. Must be healthy & safe (harming my short term or long term health in an effort to speed things up defeats the whole purpose of trying to be healthy).

“Intermittent fasting” seems to fit all four rules.

Intermittent fasting is something I first heard about last year, but something I quickly dismissed as just another weird fad thing that all the cool kids were doing.

But then fast forward to literally just yesterday and I’m doing some research for some new training I’m working on putting together. And I stumble upon “intermittent fasting” again but this time I decide to find out what it’s all about (with an open mind).

And this time…

I’m very, very intrigued, so much so…

That I’ve decided to be a human guinea pig and find out for myself if this intermittent fasting thing actually works and helps to burn away fat.

Before I get into that first, what is intermittent fasting?Continue reading

So without further ado, here they are (in no particular order)Continue reading

Are Carbs Bad For You?

Are carbs bad for you? There has been a rash of diet fads over the past few years, with many claiming that carbs are bad for you. I also get people asking me all the time…”Jonathan, are carbs bad for you?” There’s a lot of these diet gurus out there who believe we should almost completely cut carbohydrates out of our diets and eat only protein and fat. What they’ve failed to realize is that there is no one-size-fits-all carbohydrate. They’re all different, and some are better than others.Continue reading
