Fast 5 Diet.


#1

Morning,
recently I came across the Fast 5 Diet, and was just wondering whether anybody had tried it.
I am not looking to just lose weight but keep my strength levels stable while working on some body recomposition.
Have done this before with a low carb high fat diet but would like to give this a shot.

Would love to hear any experiences you guys have had with this diet specifically or intermittent fasting in general.

Thanks,

JT

"Here is the basic premise of the Fast-5 program. Every 24 hours you go 19 hours without eating (hence the word fast) and eat for 5 hours; pretty simple. Dr. Herring recommends making your 5-hour window somewhere around 5-10pm for a few reasons but does say that as long as you stay with the 19-5 rule those 5 hours can be placed where ever they make the most sense for your life."

Never Heard of it until now.

Search IF, Warrior Diet, or Lean gains in the upper right.

all that is, is intermittent fasting with a shorter eating period than the traditional set up

aka yeah you can do that
