Change in Approach to Dieting? Training When Fasted?

@Ellington_Darden

Hello Dr Darden,

After being a follower of your HIT publications for almost 20 years I decided to purchase the Extreme HIT ebook.

A lot of the previous mentality changed regarding training. Do you think it can happen with dieting?

Can the program be used for rapid fat loss when combined with an intermittent fasting protocol?

Do you recommend or abstain from training when fastes?

Thanks in advance.

I have a friend who is doing just what you suggested. He says his results are progressing well.

Thank you for your reply.

Any tips and recommendations for someone following this protocol?

Do you see any danger in performing the prescribed workouts fasted?

Would you consider performing a study on subjects under an intermittent fasting for fat loss? - reduced caloric intake vs. fasting.
