The more meals... the more insulin release... the more inflammation (CRP)

Fasting seems to increase metabolism during the first 48 hours.

I'm really beginning to question the whole higher metabolism thing associated with eating many small meals. Is it really that much of a difference that it's going to make an impact? For someone eating a paleo diet, IF'n, lifting hard, exercising right and trying to sleep as much as they can, are they going to see any improvements or a better level of health and performance? Yeah I'm sure if you're obese, have zero activity and borderline diabetic it could probably make a work of difference...

Good question....as if you limit the calories through IF...even if the metabolism lowers itself you will still have a defecit and can have weight loss. Not to mention the added health benefits of daily lower calorie intake, less insulin release, etc..etc..etc. I lift 2x a week only, eat IF...and actually gain muscle and lose fat....so if I am also being healthier and reducing ageing factors while increasing my immune system and insulin sensitivity....well seems like a win win....

Lots of the people who train intense every day....eat 6-7x a day....don't make it past 40 or 50 without some major heart issues.....moderation and figuring out how the body was supposed to be used is the key to keeping it healthy for a long time....

You want your car to last a long time? Don't put on a ton of miles and drive it like a race car everyday....

MOD, that's a very funny statement coming from someone who no doubt has to drive on 285 from time to time. Cars don't always last long in the ATL. (lived there for 11 years, now up the road in Rome)

I hate the highways....as I had to wait 90min to go see the Sox beat up on the Braves....luckily we can all buy new cars...can't buy new bodies....or at least they are way more expensive...at least 6million dollars by 1970s TV economy...

My car made up until 6 weeks before I moved from ATL, then it got totalled. Unfortunately I was in the car at the time.

My nutrition teacher in chiro school was fond of fasting, even just skipping a meal or two now and then (didn't call it IF back then). He described it as "complete physiological rest" so that your body could get to some long overdo repair work on a cellular basis. Not sure if it would work with some of the crazy amounts of training some people do. I'm not doing hardcore metcon/CF stuff currently and I'm enjoying IF with 3 strength workouts per week. Taking it easy and feeling good...for now.

Mike, and all those old enough to remember 70's TV, I just saw an ad for a new show coming this fall...The Bionic Woman! I think she's got the one arm and both leg thing going. Effects should be a little bit better this time around. Even money Lindsay Wagner gets at least a cameo.

One last thing Mike. The Sox's 10 game lead on the Yanks is not enough. The Evil Empire lives on.
