Dr. Eades is still not a 100% sure, but I believe he has turned the corner recently.
My advice; read up on it, follow a sensible protocol (NO....fasting 20 hours and then having a big mac, large fries, shake and a sundae does not qualify as sensible) and see how it feels for your self.
I know there is lots of quality,detailed and well researched information out there on the subject so check it out. I thought I'd share with you how I incorporate IF into my busy life.
Monday I ate both lunch and dinner at a restaurant (I will post later this week on how to stay on track when dining out). I had a delicious breakfast , greek lunch and mexican dinner. After eating restaurant food, I like to give my body a rest from the ingredients (even though paleo/EF/primal) that I have no control over. I finished eating around 7:30 pm.
Early morning I made my niece and nephews breakfast. Went for a playful run outside, some push ups, balancing, jumping and sprinting. Then I hit the pool (it was somewhat cold) and swam for about 10 minutes and jumped around a bit in the pool. A nice natural work out.
Went to work. Feeling very sharp, I flew through my morning office chaos. For lunch, I left the office and played about 50 minutes of tennis. I was not hungry in the least bit.
Late in the afternoon around 4:30 pm was the first time of the day that my thoughts turned to food. I drank some water and planned dinner in my head.
Home at 6:15 pm I made dinner for my kids and their cousins (7 kids in total). Once they were done I got to cooking for me. As my sister had to eat too, I made a lot of food ;-)
I had 2 large grilled rib eye steaks left over. I cut them into bite size pieces. In compound butter (garlic and herbs) I sauteed some garlic, spring onion, red pepper and a few slices of serrano pepper. Then add the steaks pieces. When they were getting close to done, I added a half a pound a fresh cut up shrimp and another pat of butter. A nice large salad with evoo and balsamic vinegar. To not freak my sister out completely with my protein feast, I made a large dish of yellow tomatoes and mozzarella, fresh basil, evoo and balsamic.
I consume large amounts of evoo and organic butter.
How do you apply IF in your life?
