Intermittent Fasting and Common Sense with Victor Costa Vic's Natural
Hi folks,
Again, the intermittent fasting question is upon me. The question, is , "Is it good"?
Now, remember, each person has an answer based upon his or her perspective. As many of you know, I have only eaten 3 meals per day for over 10 years and I ate very little at that. One might argue that I was permanently fasting.
However, let's pretend that I ran across an article called" Intermittent Fasting", Ripped Beyond Belief. And, let's pretend that I said to myself, " Hey, I want to be ripped beyond belief too". Oddly enough, my desire to be ripped doesn't have anything to do with examining what I am already doing because I am relatively disconnected from my desires and my realities of what I am already doing. A dangerous combination. It's akin to when we complete;y abandon common sense. Ergo, I begin fasting. The muscles that I was barely hanging on as it were, is now struggling to remain. However, I am too focused, dedicated to my desire. Hey, wait a minute, this is starting to work. My abs are tighter. Hold on. Already calorie restricted, I become irritable, and actually depressed as my chemistry which was delicate as it were, is now throw further out of whack and compromised. Immune system is hurting , I get sick and have to stop training for 4 weeks to heal. Then, I get in a funk and stop training for 4 months and I look for inspiration to reignite my body.

How do I know this happens. Because I get hundreds of emails about it. Remember, I tell you only from experience.

For me, the concept seems almost insane. A person who might not be eating enough actively "fasting". The word should be stricken from the vocabulary of many. However, there are those who may fare better. Those folks who are bulkier, perhaps those who have either been eating very "loosely" and, or , those who have been eating many meals per day without sparing calories, may benefit. And why will they benefit, because they are probably already eating too much.

Usually people who have been abusing something, benefit from doing without it. Think about it, you take a turn in your car, car is slightly out of control and now one has to turn the wheel in the other direction. What usually happens is overcorrecting and the entire car flips over. I have discovered that eating normal, is now called "intermittent fasting".
I understand the concept. However, if we have been doing what is good for our health, all the long, we would just call it nourishment. Peace, Be Smart and Be Healthy, Vic
