Intermittent Fasting

Ever since I got the Precision Nutrition book, I've been interested in trying Intermittent Fasting. It seems like a faily well researched way to increase energy, improve sleep and lean out.

Then I listened to the wonderful Rhonda Patrick on Tim Ferriss' podcast1, and she mentioned that it would be one of the top few health/food tactics she would recommend.

Initially I thought it wouldn't work for me, but then I recently spoke with a fellow Crossfitter who does it and he said he's lost 7 pounds (in 2 months), never slept better and has more energy than ever!

He eats all his calories between 6pm and 10pm, with a bit of Bullet Proof Coffee in the morning to get him going and give his brain some good fats. He says it tooks him about a month to get fully in to it, first eating at noon, then 1, then 2, etc...

I don't like coffee so I'm not sure how I will duplicate that fat content, but I'll ask my nurtitionist how she would approach it, or even if she recommends it.

Consuming all my cals in the evening would work really well for me as I get home about 6pm and go to bed 9-9:30, so I'll just have a big meal just before going to bed.

I'm a bit scared but also super curious how it works.

A balanced look at gluten sensitivity. Even though it doesn’t appear on any calendar, May 2014 will go down in history as “gluten sensitivity month.”

I think I have NCGS, but now I’m not so sure. I do feel bloated after a lot of bread (especially white) and white pasta, but maybe I’ve just convinced myself of that?
