Should you use intermittent fasting everyday? Response to Thomas DeLauer


Should you use intermittent fasting everyday? In this video I tackle the subject presented by Thomas DeLauer on the premise that you shouldn’t fast everyday. I break down why Thomas is actually wrong about his position and why you can absolutely fast every single day. Fasting carries a breath of benefits and to dismiss those for a strategic method based on some theories and studies that do not represent daily fasting should not be the reason one decides not to fast. Enjoy. *Also I just want to let everyone know I am not bashing Thomas Delauer as I respect and appreciate his stance on both the Keto and intermittent fasting community. Just want to put that out there.

  1. Awesome! We need more people like you on the net that are actually ENHANCING other people’s content through additional validation. You sir, have won a ton of my respect for handling how you handled this. Would love to collaborate sometime in the future and do a massive brain-share if you’re game! 💪🏼

  2. Both of you are brilliant
    I'm using nd following methods of both..nd I'm so healthy nd happy i have new life ..i do IF every single day
    The best way of losing weight also all for free at no cost

  3. To be credible, it helps to understand the words you are using. You state you want to "PREFIX" your response when the word you wanted was ""PREFACE". Taking advice from someone who doesn't know the difference between these two words, isn't on my to-do list.

  4. I have absolutely no science to back this up with, but just in my personal experience, trying to "trick" my body by throwing it off the routine a couple of days a week does wonders. It's like it goes, "wait, wtf are we doing now?" and when I return to the fasted state, it's that much more revved up. Lost 30 lbs so far, but who knows, maybe you're right and I could have done more…All I know is that when I fast 7 days a week, my body just seems to get "used" to it eventually and the effect stops.

  5. I’m 15 years old and my tdee is around 1500 and I’m doing OMAD dry fasting every other day and OMD water fasting on other days I’m eating around 300-500 kcals per day, I also burn around 200kcals in cardio per day and I feel better however I’m not losing weight on a caloric deficit of around 1000 – 1200 per day does Anyone have any advice?

  6. If I do the warrior diet 20 & 4, how do I know how many calories I'm supposed to consume in those 4 hours? Because I would 2ant to make sure I get them in, when I start keto and fasting. Thank you!!

  7. Respect! I love both of you guys and can not express how much I appreciate the way you handled this. You are the man. Can’t wait to see you guys collaborate. Be blessed 😍

  8. 16/8 is good for me. You can get the calories in with healthy food. But you don’t have to fast everyday. As long as you are on track 5 to 6 days a week I found that the works.

  9. I just started this and am already seeing results doing your week routine for maximum fat loss. You fast everyday and for how many years have you been doing this. At first I thought I wouldn’t be able to do this long term but I’m thinking this is possible. Specifically bc I’m finding that there are tons of variations to help you maintain after fat loss.

  10. Can you do video for women , I saw one of his Videos telling women not to fast everyday he said every other day .. I see a lot that women are diff from men due to us since we can carry a baby and our hormones..

  11. Great, this is a good video. I can eat 10,000 calories in a single meal almost every day if I wanted (5'10 170 lbs lean). I've also fasted for 3 or more days, and my first meal was nearly 10,000 calories of all types of food, with no issues at all.

  12. I do IF 6 days per week- BUT I vary it up. I do 20:4 for 2 to 3 days , and the rest I vary between 16:8 and 12:12. I do this because lab tests of my very own have indicated that I adjust very quickly to thyroid medications- so I am presuming that I adjust very easily to most endocrine changes. So, if IF is going to work for me— I can't afford to get i na predicatbale rhythm. What do you think of this type of philosphy?

  13. I'm thinking that shaking it up is probably a good idea. I have been doing 16:8 since I started keto and switched to 18:6 in January. I have been doing this between 85-90% of the time. I have basically stalled since last June. Might start shaking things up with my fasting times and eating times.

  14. Evolution argues for seasonal eating and fast/feast; go get it and then eat. For me, the best part of IF then is that you can use it within the wide range of our evolutionary biology.

    I 20:4 4-5 days a week and those days are a reduced caloric intake. Following the Thomas guideline I feast up a couple days and it all becomes a win-win. Scale and blood sugar/blood ketones tell me I am on target.

    The IF dragon scrolls are right. There is no secret ingredient. KISS
