The thing that I'm wrestling with now is between IF, Paleo, very low carb and calorie restriction, what's the best thing, or combination of things to do to increase general health.

I'm attempting IF again, the first time lead to terrible headaches and I had to go back to a normal eating schedule.

I had a lot of success with Zone sizing and now I'm Zone sizing with Paleo-only foods and that's been pretty good.

Damn black box testing!

They're all different things for starters.

Paleo eating is food that, as best as possible mimics what our Paleolithic ancestors ate. Foods that are unprocessed is the key along with foods that can eaten without cooking; ie grains, beans, dairy.

IF is eating your required caloric intake in a smaller eating window instead of it being spread out over the day.

Very Low Carb eating comes pretty much hand in hand with the two above. You'll find it extremely hard to eat a high carb diet if you eat mainly leafy and cruciferous veggies. Keep fruit to a minimum and you'll be set.

As for calorie restriction; that's a dirty dirt. Fasting helps with that as it reduces the required caloric intake due to better digestion and utilization of the nutrients and macro-calories you eat letting you eat less to maintain.

So yes, you tie them all into a nice neat little package and it'll take care of itself. Best way to implement all this is to start Paleo, then go lower carb, throw in IF and less food will take care of itself.

Thanks for that breakdown, as I mentioned, I'm Paleo now and trying IF again.

My diet does have a lot fruit in it though, so I should increase the leafy greens and decrease the fruits.
