Currently there aren't any available studies that I can find that examine IF solely for weight loss/fat burn effects. I can find quite a few studies showing the efficacy of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction on a whole host of body systems, but I can't find any addressing IF by itself, which means that you can't distinguish between weight loss ...

You can actually burn that amount of calories by walking, but remember that the calories include the ones burned by your organism at rest. If you would sit down instead of walking you would also burn calories because every live cell in your body needs energy for normal processes. That being said, you have to know that calories are NOT the only thing you have ...

While I can't provide you with a sortable "fullness factor" database - here's exactly how I would get a list of the foods you're looking for...

This depends on how long you have been on that program really, and how long you have been exercising and dieting in general. That looks like a decent diet, and with a high-intensity form of exercise (lifting weights) 5 days a week your body composition (how much muscle and fat you carry) should improve quite quickly even on a "bulk". Maybe up the intensity ...

Rok I have been doing IF for a year or so. In absence of any clinical trial and while I am not strictly answering your question, I am hoping that you really want to give IF a go. Consider this: By giving a large time gap between your last meal of the day and first meal of the next day, what will your brain and body be running on? We can only store 100 ...

This was covered in: What's The Right Diet For You? A Horizon Special and there appears to be a few bits in the associated free interactive eBook. Essentially the thought is that intermittent fasting (IF) is a useful dieting technique, for people that they categorise / profile as "Constant Cravers", as the body will produce appetite suppressing ketones in ...

I am doing stronglifts on a deficit (1760 calories a day). I am 5'7" and weigh 173. I was 172 when I started back on the program. I had to stop going to the gym for financial reason, and from October '14 to Feb '15 I gained 20 lbs. Over this first four weeks I shot up to 178lbs and I am now on a downward trend. My goal is to lean up (just not be a fat-ass ...

It is absolutely impossible to eliminate body fat in "only one place". Lifting weights has no connection to eliminating body fat. Lifting weights makes your muscles larger (which is totally fantastic) but has no connection to eliminating body fat. The only way to eliminate body fat is via diet. Body fat is simply caused by eating carbohydrates, which ...

I agree with above answers that there no way to target belly fat. But four keys that control stomach fat are exercise, diet, sleep, and stress management. With a regular routine exercises such as walking, jogging and other cardio exercises, approximately 20 minutes per day. With a proper and balanced diet, a good sleep and a decrease of stress in your life ...
