In this video, Dr. Berg talks about what is the best pattern of intermittent fasting. There are a lot of different pattern you could follow including the daily, every other day fasting, 1 to 2 times a week or just let the body adapt. The problem with doing the every other day and 1 to 2x a week fasting pattern they always have this severe hunger, brain fog and sleep problems because they haven’t given their body the chance to adapt. The key to this is to stay consistent. The goal of Intermittent Fasting is to help heal insulin resistance, lower insulin and help our bodies reset. He also talks about how to choose the right daily pattern based on your body.
Different Intermittent Fasting Patterns
• Daily Pattern:
o 16 Hour of Fast – 8 Window of Eating: If your metabolism is fast and you are younger.
o 18 Hour of Fast – 6 Window of Eating:
o 20 Hour of Fast – 4 Window of Eating: The older you are, the slower the metabolism, the longer you have to fast.
• Every Other Day Fasting
• 1-2x Week – Fasting on the Weekend. (Have to give the body a chance to adapt)
• Let Body Adapt
Problem with Every Other Day Fasting and 1 to 2x a Week Fasting Pattern:
• Severe hunger
• Brain fog
• Sleep problems
So I had a question recently presented to me, they wanted to know what is the best patter of intermittent fasting. I am gonna give you my opinion on that. So there is a lot of different patterns that you could follow, you can do it daily, and within that daily pattern you can have like an 8 hour window of eating and a 16 hours fast. A 6 hour window of eating and an 18 hour of fast. And a 4 hour window of eating lets say you eat at a 1 and then 4 and then you had 20 hours of fasting. And then you have every other day fasting and then you are fasting on the weekends or maybe once or twice a week and maybe you are doing a whole 24 fast. So there is a lot of different things that you can do. Well here is the problem with these two right here, every other day or once or twice a week. So I’ve got a lot of feedback from many people that do it every other day or a couple times a week, and they nearly always have severe hunger, brain fog, sleep problems, and that is they haven’t given their body a chance to adapt. So I am gonna recommend that you stay consistent because why don’t you wanna do some form of fasting on a regular basis. I am talking about everyday. So let’s talk about what specific pattern that you would wanna do in a daily basis. So there is a lot of benefits to fasting but the goal would be to help heal insulin resistance, to help lower insulin, to help our bodies reset, what I would to is I would base this pattern based on your body, your physiology. If your metabolism is fast and you are younger, you probably would go with this right here which is a 16 hour fast and 8 hour eating window. But the older you are, the slower the metabolism, the longer you wanna fast. You would gradually work up to fasting for 20 hours and having 4 hour window and eventually go into one meal a day which is OMAD. That would be the best thing that a person can do.
