fasting" and you get a number of websites about different forms of IF. The one I found to be most helpful and least biased was "Experiments with Intermittent Fasting" by Dr John Berardi, a free pdf book on his website. Dr Berardi looks at the benefits and science behind IF, and being a researcher he conducted a 6-month study on himself, testing different IF methods and recording his results. His stats and photos were compelling. I flew through the book and decided to give the Lean Gains Method (16hr fast/8hr feed) a try. Surprisingly, I didn't find it all that hard to fast. If I kept myself occupied I found the feelings of hunger subsided pretty quickly, and when I did eat, I found myself not all that hungry. Interesting...I should note I didn't monitor what foods I ate (although mostly healthy), nor did I binge (phew! a real concern of mine), and I only tried it for 10 days, so I didn't see any composition changes. I just wanted to see if I could do it, so it served its short-term purpose.
