Uhuu, another great article!
Since I came across your website few weeks ago, I’m trying to read the articles on a regular bases. And this one comes just in time (yeah, a sign from the Universe!) to support my decision in keeping up with the fasting I’ve already started. My way – twice a week for 24 hours. (I actually adopted this from Brad Pilon’s book Eat Stop Eat; also a nice piece of information on the subject). It’s been just few weeks now that I’ve been doing it but it feels awesome. And about the training while fasting – last time I decided to have my Karate class on a fasting day – was great! Absolutely no lack of energy, would say even the opposite. ;)
Well, my commitment is a year-long, so I hope that sometime in the middle of the year I’ll already have a Success Story to send you, along with the meditation practice. :)) Cheers!

Seriously, keep in mind that the human body is an adaptive creature. If you are changing 20 different variables at once, you are going to have no idea what is working, what isn’t. As you adapt to these new variables you have to keep in mind “what’s my next progression”. As an example, say that someone wants to get in shape and they decide to run an hour a day, do intermittent fasting with an 8 hour feeding window and cut their calories to 1000 per day. Their body is going adapt at some point…they aren’t going to continue to lose weight indefinitely until they weigh like 12 pounds. When they adapt and plateau, what’s their next progression? Are they going to need to run 2 hours a day…cut their feeding window to 4 hours…cut their calories to 500? Of course this is an extreme example to illustrate a point, but as James said, take it slower, observe what each variable does, milk each one for what it’s worth and then move on to the next progression. But that is just my opinion. Most people want faster results and some people need faster results or they lose interest/motivation. I started seriously thinking about leaning down almost 2 years ago, and while the first few months I didn’t really know what direction I wanted to take, I stuck with that mindset, started out with almost a 40 inch waist and am down to around 35 now with bumps for abs. If I didn’t deadlift, my waist size would probably be smaller, something that I have noted from observing my variables, so that isn’t a number that I get too worked up about. I’m not ripped, but I’m not “dieting” either. I make one lifestyle change at a time, and if it works, I keep it. Then after awhile, it’s on to the next one. But that’s just me and my own personal opinion. Good luck!

A 2008 study of women and adolescent girls in New Zealand showed that this receptor deficit is at least partly genetic.  The overweight females had the Taq1A1 gene that is associated with fewer dopamine receptors . This receptor deficit in the obese led them to overeat to achieve the level of pleasure or satiety that normal individuals reached with less food. This reduced level of dopamine receptors tends to make life a bit less pleasant for the obese when they are hungry and without food. Ingestion of food, particularly carbohydrates, temporarily raises the level of dopamine, eliminating the “pleasure deficit” and rewarding eating behavior.  Excessive eating or bingeing raises the dopamine levels even higher than normal, which can lead to a further downregulation of dopamine receptors, only worsening the craving problem. This effect is not only influenced by genes, but by diet; a 2010 study of rats fed a supermarket “junk food” diet showed raid desensitization of dopamine receptors a significant increase in appetite, and an unwillingness to return to eating “healthy” food.

Tip :   Try to stay busy during your fasting period. Fill your mind with positive thoughts and emotions while your stomach is empty. Just forget about food for a time. You will find that it’s much easier to fast when you are busy with work, or when you go walking or shopping (last works good for women) rather than being in a passive state. It makes sense to plan your fasts on working days. Moreover, you may discover that you become more productive on your fasting days. One obvious thing you may do to increase energy deficit, especially when your body fat level is high, is to switch to 2 fasts per 10 days or 2 fasts per 1 week regimes.

According to Bread for the World, 13 per cent of . citizens live in poverty, and we are the wealthiest nation in the world. Take a moment to digest how impossible life must be for those not fortunate enough to live in a country with soup kitchens and homeless shelters. The need is enormous, but the solution is quite simple. It takes about a dollar a day to feed someone. You just need to keep collecting dollars and use them to support organizations ready to get the food out to those that need it. However, it is easier said than done.
