Hey guys, I have a question about fasting.

I like fasting as much as I like eating.

The thing that I like most is to not eat chit for 22-24 hours and consume my calories for the whole day in 1 session.

I've been doing this every day for the past few months and my workouts have been great. Strength is going up as well. Not sure about my gains though, but I'm probably not eating enough.

Are there any pro's and cons on doing this on a daily basis?

Fasting makes me feel good but the internet tells me 400 different things about it, positive and negative.

Does anyone of you follow the same eating-pattern? Or does anyone of you know more about it?

Thanks in advance.

No, he's practicing the "Warrior Diet" eating protocol, unknowingly.

OP, no one can give you an exact science on the matter, all we can say is, if it's working, then the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

I haven't read the article itself, but since there isn't anything mentioned in the abstract: do they specify how long the fast lasts?

Amounts of autophagic activity were noted at the 24 and 48 hour marks vs. immediately post-fed; the florescent white / green dots are what to look for
