Disclaimer: Intermittent fasting is considered a controversial topic by some AND depending on your health may not be a good idea- so you are responsible for checking with your doctor or medical professional before doing this. I am not a medical professional and the following are just my opinions based on my own experience and the research that I've done. There are quite a few books that expound on both the history and proof of the efficacy of fasting and I firmly believe in it's use, when done the right way, myself.
Weight Corrections in Phase 3 and 4
Intermittent Fasting/Steak Day is a really effective way of making weight corrections for 2 main reasons:
- It creates a very drastic calorie reduction all at once in 1 day (vs over a period of several days) and
- fasting creates a lot of hormone changes that don't occur with just eating a little less - it reduces insulin levels and raises human growth hormone levels, and this can really allow for effective actual FAT loss during that fasting period.
- I'd argue a 3rd point that I personally feel that doing a "diet" for just 1 day here and there like on a fast day is much easier than being on a diet for weeks, making it to me a more doable and realistic way of making corrections simply because you'll stick to it- since it's only 1 day, not 4 weeks.
