5 Weird Benefits Of Intermittent Fasting

2670 ratings | 70103 views
Over these few past years, the popularity of intermittent fasting or ‘IF’ has exploded. Though the patterns of short-term fasting are thousands of years of old, the idea of “skipping meals” or pushing them for later has only surfaced in the fitness world few years ago. This has raised a lot of eyebrows in the fitness community, and also surfaced a ton of myths. The 5 Benefits: 1.) In non-obese men, an intermittent fasting testosterone study showed that fasting increased LH (luteinizing hormone – a testosterone precursor hormone) up to 67% and overall testosterone 180%. Study - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Pituitary-testicular+axis+in+obese+men+during+short-term+fasting. 2.) Testosterone is positively correlated with insulin sensitivity. Because of this, it is smart to skip breakfast – here’s why… the body’s circadian cycle has a natural cortisol spike shortly after waking, and this happens to be the time when most individuals eat breakfast 3.) Intermittent fasting diet allows your body a daily opportunity to burn excess body fat. To put it simply, testosterone (both free T and SHBG-bound) levels correlate inversely with common measures of insulin resistance (such as insulin, C-peptide, and HOMA-IR) and body fat levels. The inverse association between testosterone and insulin resistance is mediated by adipose tissue, and independent of SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin). In simple terms: the more body fat you have, the less testosterone you will naturally be able to produce. 4.) Intermittent fasting increases levels of a hormone called adiponectin. Study - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25097840 Fasting reverses insulin resistance (study) - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11479627 5.) With just a 24 hour fast, you can elevate your growth hormone levels by up to 2000%.

man it's just when I wake up I feel like shit and sleepy, but after those 5 eggs and 100g of oats and coffee... maaan :D I feel amazing , I hit the gym 40 minutes after this meal, have been for about 2 years, so my question is this: I tried fasting and felt so hungry, and when I don't fast: I eat a big orange at 8 pm and nothing else, is it good ?
YaBoyNico (8 months ago)
Very clear, as always ;)
Ryan Deffley (8 months ago)
I did daily IF for awhile. Then I switched back to normal eating and one prolonged 36hr fast p/wk (Thurs PM-Sat AM). Feel like this gives me the benefits and a good deficit w/o the daily grind.

pyromancer3d (1 year ago)
+sub, like the content! Not doing breakfast at first was hard for me, because it was so ingrained.. But I'm getting better with it, and cutting back other beverages. The little bit I have done of IF so far, I have actually felt better. Still early for me, however, and just trying to keep the habits kicked. I legitimately feel better when I wait longer to eat, but old habits die hard. Also, water for beverage works sufficiently for me, as I've felt less tired as well, so no need for the coffee / tea in the mornings!

I've been zero carb for 3 years. I eat only one meal a day ... early in the day, I eat one pound of raw beef, 3 raw eggs and one stick of butter. Then I drink only water until 11 am and dry fast for the rest of the day until the next morning. I'm 70 years old and at 5'6", I weigh 123 lbs.

Ben Hayat (1 year ago)
I've been fasting 16/8 for 3 months and I could attest to those benefits. Now I'm doing one meal a day and at the 20th hour my body produces HGH and testosterone and is the best time to work out. And the best part of fasting is that you'll be running n Ketones and not sugar anymore. It's a win/win situation.

Heimishe Yid (1 year ago)
Why do you not have at least 100k subs. You are amazing. I am gleaning so much incredible information from you and I have a lot of confidence in your knowledge and background along with all of the stats to back it up. You also present the info in a confident, professional manner while still seeming genuine in a calming way. Incidentally, I began IF a few weeks ago. I feel incredible. Weight (hopefully fat) appears to be melting away. And most importantly, my blood sugar levels appear to have dropped to pre diabetes levels. I can't wait to see and feel more benefits as time goes on. Thanks so much for the great efforts you must put in to create content.

Heimishe Yid thanks for the great feedback :) I'm pretty new to YouTube so the subscribers will keep growing. I'm glad you're feeling good too!
george700dl (1 year ago)
Hey Chris, awesome info all around. Question: How would you manage intermittent fasting for someone who is 250lbs and around 14% bodyfat? I don't see how I could effectivelly shove around 3,000cal into 2 meals? Well, I have done it, but it is not pleasant:) Is 3 meals pretty much a must in that case?
george700dl (1 year ago)
Jay I know it can be done, and I am a big eater. But is it good, long term, to put that kinda load on your digestive system every day? But I have since this posting come up with my own strategy: Eat when hungry, don't eat when not:) For me it just happens to mean 3 big meals between 11am and 7PM:) Last one is immediatelly after training, so life is good.

Anthony Garcia (1 year ago)
Christopher, when you do Intermittent fasting, do you snack in between your meals? Also, how meals do you eat and what are your meal times. For example 12pm first meal, 3pm second meal, 6pm third meal? Im asking, cause some high intensity cardio programs seem to advocate eating every two hours and saying it increases your metabolism. However, i found peered reviewed studies that say otherwise.
dreaminginnoother (1 year ago)
Last time I had a blood test, my free testosterone was way above the normal window for someone my age. The person I was seeing said that might be a sign of something I need to fix but i think that's awesome and I accredit that to a high fat diet and now IF since I had been doing that for years, I just didn't know it could boost test until now.
Krum Kasabov (1 year ago)
you can't get to fat burning if you only skip brake fast or depend what time was your diner

This guy (Chris W.) is really good and I've been watching his vids over the past couple of months and really trying to follow what he says in terms of raising my t-levels and I honestly think it's really working!! I'm seeing and feeling signs of higher T. Energy levels are good. Sleep has improved to the point now that I actually LIKE to sleep now. Mental focus is better and I think cortisol levels are down. I like this guy!!

MJ (1 year ago)
Hi Christopher, just a quick remark: just like other hormonal axes, the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes axis also has a negative feedback loop. Basically, in physiologic conditions and with the absence of a significant pathology (primary hypergonadism or a pituitary adenoma producing LH), a spike in LH such as that documented by the researchers due to IF, will indeed lead to a spike in Testosterone in the short term. However, the spike in Testosterone will inhibit both GnRH and LH, leading to a decrease in Testosterone later on. This loop is evident on the pic you posted during the video as well. So, even though I'm not aware of any specific studies documenting the effects on-average on Testosterone levels*, in a healthy individual practicing IF, we should expect to find some spikes of Testosterone as you mentioned, but because Testosterone has a biological half life of about 2 hours, one should expect the spike to be present only for a very short period of time, and the average Testosterone levels to be either smack-in-the-middle normal (since the inhibition will balance the spike), or even worse, a decrease in overall levels. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23382817 This is the only article I managed to find with a long-ish study on testosterone levels during intermittent fasting. But it's on rats. Anyway, it shows a significant decrease in serum testosterone after 12 weeks in the IF group compared to the control "ad libitum". It also shows a reduction in leptin, the satiety hormone, but that's for another discussion.

lonepanther (1 year ago)
I've been IF on and off for awhile.. I've been doing it more often now and see how it'll help me.. I have a binge eating problem so I'm hoping IF will help . I'm also quite overweight so I hope IF will help me lose weight as well.. I'm fasting between 12-18 hours a day.. I stop eating around 7 at night.. and go to sleep around 3 hours later.. then after I sleep and wake up it'll be 8 hours later so it's quite easy to to make 16 hours daily with no food. I also have depression and anxiety and I hear IF can help detoxing so maybe I'll feel benefits regarding that too.. no idea. I'll keep trying this out. ✌️️
Christian Granados (1 year ago)
I've intermittent fasting using bulletproof coffee and oh man fat is falling off. Ketogenic diet is king!
DC (1 year ago)
Awesome! I have subscribed. Question: If you follow an intermittent fasting routine that has you eating between the hours of , say, 11am and 7pm, and the remaining 16 hours you are fasting, is it possible to have an effective early morning workout with weights without having a pre-workout carb boost or immediate post workout meal or shake? Or, should you schedule your workout to coincide with your allotted eating time. Question #2: would skipping dinner work as well? Say I get up in the morning at 5 or 6am have a workout, eat accordingly and skip dinner. Would that provide the same results? Also, I take thyroid medication for low thyroid every morning. Would this influence the results?

You know, a lot of people say how bad it is to skip breakfast and to always have breakfast and eat a lot of small meals. It's actually bullshit, you can be totally healthy even if you fast for 20 hours.

"Breakfast is your most important meal ..." and the term, "Eggs and bacon" was coined by Edward Beranys .... the famous propaganda specialist when he was paid by the bacon industry to increase sales. Edward was also the man who engineered women to smoke, doubling the income of the cigarette industry ... and HIGHLY influential to the Third Reich and their propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. Think about how many people have died because of Edward's bullshit, the evil, pernicious, bastard.
J Singh (1 year ago)
+Broken Clockwork hello, they are not totally wrong. the thing is that a lot of people end up having gas and bloated if they drink tea and coffee on an empty stomach. Coffee is quite strong especially without milk so I don't drink it just like that. i would say try to drink water or lemon water or something like that during the fast. although i am not sure abt what lemon would do to your system being acidic. but coffee and tea are also bad anyway. they also damage the teeth if i am not wrong. so water is the best bet. no side effects. question is how long can yu starve yourself.

Panda395 i've been not eating from 6 PM to noon the following day for almost 4 years. Obviously it's not always possible, but I have to say I do it 98% of the time. I can almost eat whatever I want from noon to six every day. I go to the gym in the morning, fully-fasted, then come back and and have a high protein lunch. I'm 63 and in the best shape of my life. I don't take any prescriptions and I tackle my wife twice a day.
Totally Raw (1 year ago)
But in that study, the subjects fasted for 56 hours! With typical intermittent fasting, you are only going 16 hours. Big difference! Where are the studies that show an increase in testosterone by fasting for just 16 hours? Where are the studies that show an increase in growth hormone by fasting for just 16 hours?

Thanks for all the useful information in all your vids. I have learned a lot in the past few months and I'm seeing the results in my body by applying healthy new habits and supplements to my daily routine. There's so much different much info out there on what's healthy and what's not. It really gets confusing and frustrating at times to try and filter through some of the BS and get the truth out of all of it, but I'm impressed with your science backed data in all your suggestions. For the past two two months I've been on the ketogenic diet (including all my necessary supplements) and I have seen amazing results all around. Can you please make a video to cover the pros and cons of this diet because for some strange reason I feel so great but at the same time l feel like I'm missing something. Thanks.

Felipe Souza (1 year ago)
coconut sugar mate whic has a very low GI (25) so it sweetens a bit without many calories also so you don't break the fast. up to 30 calories should be fine, other than that your insulin level will go up giving you the fake hunger. And also, if you have been fasting as you said but having coffee with loads of sugar, sorry but you havent been fasting at all.

Waylon Queiroz (1 year ago)
thanks man, i will start today.
marppy (1 year ago)
Check out leangains.com for all the nerdy details but here are the basics: 16 hour fasting, 8 hour "eating window" every day, for instance: skip breakfast, have lunch at 12, a snack in the afternoon if necessary and have dinner at 8pm, no meals before or after that. You can approach that gradually by doing 14/10 initially and you can experiment with doing 18/6 on a cut for instance. Long story short: just skip breakfast and have lunch when you're hungry. Don't worry if it's 15/9 or 17/7 on any given day. Oh, and: black coffee (no cream or sugar) and sparking water help in the morning. My appetite completely disappears for an hour or two after a cup of coffee at around 10am.

Dimaright (1 year ago)
Doing fasting for ~ 4 years now (on and off). At some point it def. promotes eating disorder: I lose feel of satiety and start overeating. You can't go too crazy with this thing, combining prolonged fasts and too low calorie intake. It backfires.
Manny Bobby (1 year ago)
Dimaright some TIPS: - eat only within that small window - use smaller plates - don't overdo the Carbs - If you still see yourself over EATING make sure is healthy stuff and start exercising after dinner to balance out the blood sugar, plus drink lots of water.

drew daniels (1 year ago)
I'm not expert but I've been doing it on and off for 3 years... try to wait at least 4 hours, 8 if your trying for aggressive fat loss but if you don't workout already, your going to want to increase your active WHEN you stop IF until you re learn how much calories you need.

It depends on how many calories are in the pre-workout, I would say anything under 100 calories is okay.

Some days I do just an 4 to 8 hr window. Strange thing is I feel an increase in stomach bloat now days vs a smaller stomach. something tells me its cortisol. Ashwaganda has helped
Christopher Walker (1 year ago)
Yeah that could also be from an increase in food quantity per meal with certain foods. I've found some days I get a bit bloated after eating large meals as well, but it interestingly typically only happens when I have a combo of higher fat + higher carb. Not when I have carb + protein or fat + protein heavy meals. Taking a probiotic has been helpful as well for me to get rid of any gas
Mark Williams (1 year ago)
I love fasting and have done it for over a year now. It seems as if my body is really getting used to it now and in somedays the cortisol is on the high side

Hey I got a question. I've read somewhere that after a certain point the benefits of additional testosterone is diminished and can even be damaging. What does someone let's say at 1600 have over someone at 800 other than easier muscle gains? It's just something I've been curious about reading about all this stuff recently. Thanks.

Definitely, from what I've seen, you would want to be anywhere between 800-1200 naturally and you'll feel about the same sexually, physically, mentally, especially since your T can fluctuate throughout the day and week up and down in that kind of standard deviation based on stress, alcohol, sleep, etc. Muscle gain is definitely easier in the higher range. Libido doesn't change much (according to research I've seen) after about 600 (which is considered a healthy level).

Can you still benefit if its say 15-9 or 14-10.....or does it have to be 16 hrs fast and 8 hr food window?

No, coffee is fine. Just don't drink too much. https://www.anabolicmen.com/caffeine-testosterone/
