Would adding a small amount of gelatin/collagen and coconut oil to a cup of coffee (like the Neupert 24 hour diet) be considered breaking your fast? I usually do this to take the edge off of IF when I do it
@Cory – good question and the answer is YES, adding collagen & coconut would be considered breaking your fast.
There are still metabolic processes that occur that requires your body to metabolize the protein and fat from collagen & coconut oil. That doesn’t mean it’s not healthy… it just means that you’re not fasting anymore.
Are beans or nuts in small quantities an issue?
Nuts are welcome… beans are fine but in small quantity. Although beans do contain protein, they still contain more carbohydrates and have a higher glycemic load than vegetables.
Just to be clear, no cheat days, stay true for the duration…… so for how long? Is the 44.7-50% waist/height ratio the target?
Some thoughts on IF, in the video you talk about the intention to consolidate feedings so meal frequency is reduced. If we don’t also reduce our overall calorie consumption (i.e. eat one normal mean in ESE protocol or two on 16/8) wouldn’t this reduce the effectiveness as a fat loss method?
Also, how would you time feeding both with the HIIT/walking and strength training?
Chris- do you see any problem with using both fasting forms (i.e., 1-2 24 hour fasting days, and “16-8” on the other feeding days?)
Beauty question Paul!!
@Paul – No problem at all. you’re basically just doing “time restricted feeding” and adding Eat-Stop-Eat to it. Great question, btw.
A few questions
1. Any suggested parameters around total grams of carbs per day? In other words, define low carb.
2. I?m still nursing a bum shoulder and a pinched nerve so snatches are not working – tried them last weekend to my demise. If I replaced snatches with hill sprints and maybe 32kg 2H swings along with rucking does that suffice?
Hey There. So this is the point where I try to convince you to sign up for my monthly membership.
Want to know how to go from 5 to 20 chin-ups?
Want to know how to travel the world with your family on budget?
Want to eat whatever you want without getting Dad Bod?
How about how to increase your testosterone levels naturally without the use of creams or injections?
Or maybe you want to know how to get shredded in 28 days using just a kettlebell?
You’ll get that all (and more… a lot more, actually) in the Strength Club x #AlphaDAD Project. (the “x” by the way is just a fancy way of saying “by”).
Strength is about more than how much you can lift in the gym or about how many kettlebell swings you can do.
It’s about how you endure the struggles of everyday life in order to model what it means to be a Modern Day Family Man for your kids and those you serve.
The Strength Club will give you the tools, motivation and support to live your best life as an #AlphaDAD.
