  1. 4 Questions about the 20:4 intermittent fasting below:
    1) what amount of calories are you taking in during your eating window? Based on my calorie calculator, in order to lose 1lb per week, I must stay with 977 calories per day…(2 lbs, 477 calories per day)
    2) if your calorie take-in during your eating window is say 1000 calories but you burn 500 calories that day, does that mean you can have another 500 calories to eat? When I did the military diet (which I lost 55lbs with the military diet..losing somewhere between .5 and 2lbs per week) I could not eat the calories I burned in any given day..but this was only 3 days per week with 4 rest days (3 days regimented, 4 days staying within my daily calories defined to lose weight). But for example yesterday, on the 20:4 fast, I only took in 497 calories but based on my Apple Watch I burned 510 calories does that mean I zeroed out (pretty much in a deficit on my caloric intake and should have eaten more?
    3) how many days in a row do you continue the 20:4 fast (modified warrior diet)? Is this daily/every day, with no breaks? Sporadic throughout the week? So many consecutive days per week?? Or based on how many calories you are taking in per day?
    4) Can you over-achieve with two many days (do you need some breaks) or can you do it too few a days where it winds up being rendered ineffective?
    Thanks for all the tips, btw.🙂

  2. 20:4 was my starting point and though it took a week to get acclimated when weight training while fasted it works great. Sometimes I do a OMAD on a 23:1 schedule. My body tells me if I am hungry or not. The key is feeling satiated not stuffed.

  3. Hello Injust started the warrior diet myself and my eating window is 4pm-8pm…I eat baked chicken, asparagus or green beans & an avacado at 4:30pm then I eat again at 7:30 same thing minus the the avacado an I may snack on some almonds or any type of nuts throughout that time. Would this be considered over eating?!

  4. You’re such a gentleman! Really love the polite, respectful way that you tackle information that you disagree with. A big thank you from the UK for your very informative videos x

  5. Fledge, Dr. Berg talks about keeping the metabolism from adjusting by making sure that you get your nutrients by eating nutrient dense foods and, possibly even some suppliments. Simply put: the metabolism will not decrease as long as you are getting your nutrtients esp. by eating nutrient dense foods.

  6. Good advice, I started IF 3 weeks ago, I started 16-8 I lost 5lbs, so I went to 20-4 because didn't find it difficult to do. After watching your videos I started OMAD, I weight myself on Sunday morning OH MY GOD, I lost 15.1lbs I can't believe it! I have been overweight all my life, I'm 70 years old, weighted in at 318! I wish I had found IF a long time ago! I have a problem I don't think I eat enough, in the hour that I'm eating I get full very fast and have to force the food in. My dinner might be 6oz of protein, 10 oz of spinach with blue cheese and mushrooms , water is this enough?

  7. For sure plan your meals! If you can prepare them beforehand, super. But you MUST at least plan them early on. 4 hours is just too short of a window to figure out what to eat, then prepare it, and then eat it. Save yourself repeat failed attempts and unnecessary stress and plan in advance!

  8. I'm going to paste this several locations hoping this question is seen, but I work bike patrol throughout the day, then go to the gym. Does that count as a fasted stated?

  9. I eat from 2-6 and after my first meal at 2 I don’t feel like eating my second meal . But I force myself to eat then. Is this normal as it is My first week?
