The question at hand today is whether alternate-day fasting is a viable, perhaps even preferable, option for folks who want to experiment with intermittent fasting. I've written about fasting many times here on the blog because it's one of my favorite tools for managing insulin, blood sugar, appetite, and (possibly) promoting longevity, but I've never dedicated a post to alternate-day fasting per se. Time to remedy that. I call it a tool, but fasting—having regular, distinct periods of little or no food—is the natural human condition. Or at least it should be. As I like to say, physiologically speaking, some of the best stuff happens when we aren't eating. Fasting triggers desirable hormonal responses, reduces oxidative damage, promotes autophagy, and offers a mental challenge. Of course, in today's food-rich environment, most people eat regularly for upwards of 16 or 18 hours every day. Eating in a 6- or 8-hour window, much less going 24 hours or more without food, is rare. For the most part, I'm agnostic about the optimal fasting schedule. Whether someone prefers time-restricted eating like the popular 16:8 or 18:6 protocols, a weekly 24-hour fast, semi-annual prolonged fasting of three days or longer, or eating WHEN (when hunger ensues naturally) is a matter of personal taste. They each have pros and cons, but none so compelling that I'd say one is clearly best for everyone. Since a lot of people seem inclined to try alternate-day fasting, it deserves a closer look here. What Is Alternate-day Fasting Exactly? There are two broad categories of alternate-day fasting (ADF): True ADF is where you skip entire days of eating. Eat one day, don't eat the next. Simple, not necessarily easy. With this kind of ADF, you'll be doing 36-hour fasts (dinner one day to breakfast two days later) every other day. Maybe even longer. Modified ADF is where you eat every day but alternate between days where you eat normally and days where you significantly restrict calories. The general rule is to consume 25 percent of your typical daily calories. If you usually eat 2,400 calories, your week would look like this: Day 1: 2,400 calories Day 2: 600 calories Day 3: 2,400 calories Day 4: 600 calories Day 5: 2,400 calories Day 6: 600 calories Day 7: 2,400 calories Beyond that, anything goes. You can pair ADF with any way of eating—Primal, keto, vegan, carnivore, even SAD (though I wouldn't recommend it for obvious reasons). There aren't any rules about when or how often you eat on your regular eating days, but the idea is to consume the same number of calories you'd eat for weight maintenance, perhaps a bit more. Assuming you don't go hog-wild, you'll end up in a pretty hefty caloric deficit even while eating normally half the time. There are also a few specific variations in ADF: 5:2 fasting is probably the most well-known. This is akin to modified ADF, but instead of eating in a deficit every other day, you pick two days per … Continue reading "Alternate-day Fasting – Worth Trying?"
