24hrs long enough for sirt1 by eating once a day?
Ive still been reading A LOT about fasting/sirt1.
i read the term 24 hour fast often.
but i get the feeling that most of the time they mean 24 hours PLUS sleep.
so you may be around the 33 to 36 hour mark.
I know that 36 would be best but does anyone know or have read about 24 hours rather than 36 and its benefits?
at that point you are moving to a warrior/fast5 types of eating.
eating once a day every 24 hours.
i ate like that for most of this week and dropped a lot.
i was doing dinner around 7pm and glass of red wine around 11 or 12 (im a night owl lol) on empty stomach
im going to do a full week of this and see what happens.
rather than down 2 up 1.5
i was down 1 down 1 down 1 down 1.
this weeks eating schedule is going to look like this:
mon - 100% fast (to clean up for the weekends UDs) 8oz of red wine
tues - MD but eating about 2000 (400/1600) of 4700 UD 8oz of red wine
weds - im doing 1600 calorie dinner (24 hour fast) 8oz of red wine
thurs - im doing 1600 calories dinner (24 hour fast) 8oz of red wine
then i take EITHER friday or saturday based on my "social calendar"
and one is a 1600 day and the other is a full UD allowed.
then sunday is a full UD allowed but probably more like a true MD of 2500
this is one fast day
looks confusing but actually is super easy for me and allows for super flexibility
one thing that has slapped me in the face, if you remember i was the one petrified of carbs and ive found after a month of atkins and breaking old habits and then JUDDDING for a couple weeks, im able to keep to one meal a day and not get into old habits. but in that 1600 calories is desert so i never feel like i cant have anything.
*one hour on treadmill 6 days a week
