Micro Fasting?
« on: July 16, 2014, 11:21:05 AM »
on a paleo diet, does micro fasting work and does it give you sustainable body fat loss? I do a full body weight lifting work out 2x a week, and have a medium physical job 3x a week, and I get about 30 minute hike or longer 1x a week. Everyday I eat 150g fat, 100g protein, 40-20g carbs(fruit+whole milk yogurt).

I don't want to bounce up and down needing to rely on the fasting. I had my body fat checked with a full body scanner 19 weeks ago, read 19.7% body fat. Went from 175 to 163 was my lowest. Though 5-6 months ago I was 178. Now with all the building of muscle and the weight loss I am looking fairly good in the mirror, but I want the six pack, lol. If I had to guess, I'm at 15-16% body fat.

The other issue is whether it's healthy or not. I have a GOOD doctor who knows what's up and he loves my blood work. My blood pressure is 110/70 with 60-70 heart rate. I don't really want to shorten my life trying to look better naked, lol.


Any tips?

Any fasting is good as long as you maintain muscle.  Or, at least that's my personal viewpoint because muscle isn't easy to add and it looks nice + serves good function

But does it last? If I continue my eating habits with the weight come right back? Do you do this alot?
