Intermittent Fasting

by Scott Bell

It’s been about a year or so that I’ve been following an eating pattern called Intermittent Fasting (IF). My first exposure to this (and I’m sure many others) was through Martin Berkhan’s site Leangains. Later research led me to Ori Hofmekler’s books, the first of which being The Warrior Diet, and my favourite, Maximum Muscle Minimum Fat. The basic idea is to improve body composition (muscle mass relative to fat mass), but there are plenty of other potential benefits.

I’ll get into details later on about my experience, what I’ve learned so far, and what I still need to figure out. At the very minimum I’m now freed from the worry of missing meals. I think this is a hugely practical takeaway that anyone can benefit from, whether or not they’re interested in physique development.
