Interesting diet. I know some people who have tried it and they did lose weight and felt better, others didn’t do that well. My opinion is the same as for all the other diets out there. There is no ‘one size fits all’. Each person has it’s own fitness goals and/or medical conditions that it would be irresponsible to suggest that this diet or that diet is the best one. Just because this one has worked for some people, it doesn’t mean it’s going to work for others. The mistake many make is that they read or hear about a diet and they think that is the best way to go. I wish it was that easy.
A hot trend it’s just that-a hot trend until the next one comes along. I would suggest for my clients to have a visit with a registered dietitian and have her or him customize a diet plan that it will be the most efficient and effective for them. It’s the same reason a client comes to us for training even though there are thousands of general tips and opinions out there, not everything out there works because there is no ‘one size fit all’.
Hello Kathi Tognazzi,
I stick with the tried and true training I received, and continue to learn through CECs.
We all go through fasts here and there when we go without food while out on errands and the sort, anyway.
Trends and I do not get along; I prefer proven age old techniques.
Thank you for your responses! Just to clarify–I only asked the question to see what other intelligent reasoning I could put behind any answer I give to a client. I would never recommend this practice to a client : ) As Harris suggested, if a client wanted to try intermittent fasting, I would refer them to a RD to coach them through it—or discourage them.
