    All that crap he does sounds like needless torture to me. Seems like this guy is a masochist or a self abuser. No way in hell would I punish myself like that for no damn reason.

    No meals on the weekend would kill me . One meal a day is perfectly doable . I switch between 16/8 and omad , depending on my schedule for the day and how hungry I am .

    There’s intermittent fasting, and there’s eating disorders.
    Sounds like this guy has crossed that line.
    and agree that’s it’s super trendy with tech types and wannabe tech/entrepreneurial types. I think it just makes them sound like even bigger assholes than they already are.

    I eat once a day after work. If I eat in the morning or afternoon, I totally get a food coma and need an hour nap. Had to google allbirds and rothy's because I had no clue. Pass.

    My first thought was that this is totally an eating disorder. I get busy at work and have to remind myself to eat or I will get sick. But then I love to eat which brings me to my second point. If I were a billionaire, I would want to try every food I could find and learn how to cook all of it.

    well, there is a movement of the ultra-low calorie intake peeps. but that is different than IF. it's pretty extreme. i personally don't know anyone who does it but i've read about it from time to time. it's basically committing to a lifetime of severe calorie restriction. yikes

    I've heard of that, 1000-1200 calories daily? I think that's hard core but can have real benefits. (I mean, ~1200 cals is what is recommended for most women for weight loss). Unfortunately, it seems to attract people who are really just orthorexics.

    I would think eating the way this guy does would screw with your metabolism.

    the studies i've seen (really small populations, though) suggested that they have long term health benefits, including longevity. the calorie intake i've seen for women is 800-1200. that seems like it would be hard to sustain long term. i doubt i could do it.

    If it's long term calorie restriction, yes, it would totally screw it up. The alternating days/weekends etc is what keeps your body from adapting.

    But still. Fasting does lower metabolism, I was so cold when I did 24-30 hour fasts. And the psychological hunger gets to you when the rest of the world functions around meals, even if physiological hunger is dulled.

    I really think I'd advocate it only for obese people or T2 diabetics to lose weight. People within 20 lbs of normal weight, it's just too extreme.
