Feeding and Fasting

Salk Institute - Press Releases - Feeding the clock:

"When you eat may be just as vital to your health as what you eat, found researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Their experiments in mice revealed that the daily waxing and waning of thousands of genes in the liver—the body's metabolic clearinghouse—is mostly controlled by food intake and not by the body's circadian clock as conventional wisdom had it."

Can Cheating on Your Diet Help You Lose More Fat?

Can Cheating on Your Diet Help You Lose More Weight? (Part 2): Burn The Fat Blog:

Can a full-out “cheat day” help you lose fat?

Leptin is a hormone that plays a key role in regulating energy intake and energy expenditure, including appetite and metabolism. After only 7 days of calorie restriction, leptin drops on average 50%.

"The leaner you get, the more leptin becomes a limiting factor and the more you have to do to manipulate it."

"the number one influencer of leptin is insulin, and the supercedes the actual calorie content being consumed."

"A clean “carb refeed” does not have the same benefits and is not as effective; we actually tried it many, many times with clients, comparing results with the “all-out” approach, and strictly from fat loss standpoint the all-out approach produces better results every time."

"French fries, pizza, ice cream, pastries, etc, all combine two things very well—very high glycemic carbohydrates and fats. That is the winning combo."

"Research has very clearly shown that prolonged overfeeding over the course of a day (and not a single meal) is necessary to restore leptin levels to baseline."

"Recommendations: physique athletes and lean people refeed with high carb day approx every 4th day. most other people once every 4 to 7 days."

Fat For Fuel

Leangains: "Everything I've seen shows that the increase in fat use for fuel has everything to do with reducing carbs and nothing to do with increasing dietary fat per se.
Consider that the body will shift to using fat for fuel under the following conditions

1. lowcarb/ketogenic diet
2. protein sparing modified fast
3. complete starvation

What's the commonality? The lack of carbs. NOT the presence of dietary fat."
