My first contact with “Intermittent Fasting” was back in 1998 when I ran the Internet-magazine Ironmag L.L.C and we wrote about The Animal Diet (a.k.a. Animalbolics). The concept of Animalbolics was later copied by Ori Hofmekler and his Warrior Diet and a couple of years later other variants surfaced such as Dr. James Johnson’s The Alternate-Day Diet and Martin Berkhan’s Lean Gains – and in recent years we’ve seen Brad Pilon’s Eat Stop Eat and Fat Loss Forever by Dan Go and John Romaniello.
In 2009 I published a short article about Intermittent Fasting and how to use your pre- and post-workout nutrition to your advantage. In 2013 I updated the article and published it through MM Sports and Body Science Magazine. The update included strategies how to include amino acid pulses throughout the day.
A few days ago I published a new, extended and updated article about Intermittent Fasting over at The Classic Muscle Newsletter. The first part is free for non-subscribers and covers all the important basics, such as the actual net fasting state and the importance of understanding your innate circadian clock.
There’s also a teaser from part 2, where you’ll learn the three most popular fasting influenced protocols I use among my competing clients! Don’t miss this!
