    Fasting ineffective for shrinking belly fat, may actually increase it

    Hopefully, this study will give some serious food for thought to people who use (intermittent) fasting (IF) with the goal of losing excess weight. A recent post of mine discussed that IF is ineffective for fat loss and actually leads to loss of lean mass. The lead author of that study, himself...

    Ten days of complete fasting affected subjective sensations but not cognitive abilities in healthy adults Abstract Purpose: People may be unable to obtain anything edible for days under some circumstances, but they must maintain their calmness and cognition to navigate solutions. Our aim was...

    Fasting ups estrogen & cortisol, decimates vitamin D, may cause diabetes

    A really interesting study, which will likely generate more than a few hateful emails for my Inbox :): Anyways, as the study demonstrates, fasting achieves these negative effects due to the elevated fatty acids working through PPAR activator PGC-1α, to activate both the estrogen receptor (ER)...

    Intermittent Fasting (IF) Ineffective And May Even Be Dangerous

    I have no doubt the findings of this study will quickly get dismissed by the massive industry that has formed around the idea that ANY weight loss is a good thing, and, just as importantly, if you lose weight while torturing yourself (in this with fasting) somehow the "gains" are even more...

    New RP Interview (8/5) Says, "stop Eating For A While."

    @51:26 I think Peat just recommended fasting for weight loss. I believe and have experimented that it can be done, as long as the rest of the diet is adequate and isn't "restriction" based. Cyclic intermittent fasting with Peaty foods when eating.

    New To The Forum. Been Doing A Experiement Here Recently

    I'm a new member to the forum, but I'm not exactly unfamiliar with Ray's ideas. I've been following his advice pretty closely for a few months now. Before applying some of Ray's ideas I was keto, and I had cold hands and feet all the time. I actually developed a pretty scary case of...

    Down Syndrome (DS) Cognitive Handicap Is Due To (cellular) Stress, May Be Reversible

    If there is any disease that is currently considered incurable even in principles, it likely comes from the group of inherited/genetic disorders. Perhaps the most well-known one, due to rapidly rising incidence and thus publicity, is DS. Perhaps its most disabling aspect of DS is the cognitive...

    Despite Striking Increase In Dieting And Exercise, Obesity Is Skyrocketing

    Maybe it takes a study like the one below to finally wake the public health authorities from their century-long slumber. I doubt there is a person alive today living in the Western world who has not been raised by the mantra "eat less and move more" as the single proven way to lose weight...

    SFA / MUFA Are Preferentially Oxidized, While PUFA Are Stored/accumulated

    Just a quick post in response to some of the hate mail I keep getting on a daily basis in regards to the body's discriminatory treatment of various fat types. According to various proponents of keto diets, fasting, etc the organism has no preference for one type of fat or another in terms of...

    Low-protein High-carb Diet Has The Same Benefits As Caloric Restriction

    A recent study posted on the forum claimed that low carb is better for weight loss than other diets. Low Carb More Effective In Weight Loss Than High Carb? But the key question which so far most dieting studies ignore is this. Is the diet actually improving health and increasing lifespan...

    The Benefits Of Fasting Are Due To Lowering Endotoxin (LPS), Not Less Calories

    As many of you know, the argument for/against fasting has been raging on the forum for several years at this point. While Ray has spoken several times favorably about potentially skipping a meal or two, he has repeatedly said that chronic fasting is not something he recommends due to its...

    Time Restricted Eating Exerts A Powerfull Protective Effect

    Yesterday an interesting study was released which demonstrated protective effects of time restricted eating in mice. Both normal mice and mutants with malfunctioning liver circadian clock were positively affected from limiting food intake to 9-10 hours, but the mutant mice reverted from certain...

    Exercise + Fasting Is Stress, Causes Obesity And IR, And Requires Cortisol Blockade To Reverse

    I think this thread will ring true for all people who at some in their lives exercised in order to lose weight. Just like fasting, it works great in younger age (<30) but it really masks a bigger metabolic problem and of course badly backfired in the long run. Exercise is a forced/stressed...

    If You Don't Want Low Testosterone DO NOT FAST

    There is a particular user on this forum who had been proposing fasting as a way of "resetting the receptors". The idea of course being that if you have low levels of a hormone you will experience an increased number of the proteins that the hormone interacts with. I am highly skeptical of this...

    Cancer Addiction To Fat Confirmed; Niacinamide As Possible Treatment

    This is the latest of a number of studies over the last year or so that point the finger at fat (and not sugar) as the primary factor in tumor growth. I posted a few studies in the past showing that tumor cells are highly dependent on fat for growth and proliferation, and a number of...

    Chronic Fasting / Famine Can Cause Diabetes And The Adaptation Is Hereditary

    Yet another study that shows why chronic fasting is not likely to lead to good long term outcomes for your health. While it can be argued that famine is not the same as fasting, the level of caloric restriction required to see the benefits reported in animal studies comes pretty close to what...

    Fasting During Chemo?

    Hi there, I have been doing a lot of personal research on Cancer lately, and just recently came across a man named Valter Longo. Basically as I understand it, he promotes fasting prior to chemo treatment and just after. Honestly, I havent looked too deeply into his research yet as I...

    Even Intermittent Fasting Reduces Insulin Sensitivity (in The Obese)

    The study was in diabetic patients (Type II) so probably does not apply to all healthy people. However, it is still pretty telling that skipping only breakfast has such a potent and long lasting (post- lunch and dinner) effect on insulin sensitivity. http://care.diabetesjournals.org/conten ...

    Fasting / Dieting Leads To Obesity

    In direct contradiction to outfits like Weight Watchers, Warrior Diet, etc this study shows that chronic dieting and calorie restriction leads to obesity. Most of these "expert" protocols talk about "leptin sensitization". As the study points out, elevated leptin is actually one of the major...
