  • Yay! Thanks for letting me know!
  • Thanks! Wish you lots of luck, too.
  • There's a reason why the term IF stands for intermittent FASTING. It's not called IE, intermittent EATING. Why do you think the word FASTING is being used? Obviously, because fasting is actually occurring.
  • What evidence do you have to back up your claim, where you say: " me, you, and many others here, and especially the OP, are most likely the general population wherein those studies do not apply."???
  • So, I guess it all ends with resorting to ridicule.
  • I don't understand what the issue is that you are having. The evidence shows a jump in performance from baseline when using IF. I clearly pointed that out to you.
  • "led to considerable alterations in basal metabolism including a significant (mean 3.6%) increase in resting metabolic rate"
  • The library access I have does.
  • Abstracts are shown, while the rest of the articles are behind a paywall...unless of course you have access, like university library or part of a professional society.
  • What's that got to do with answering OP's question. You say not everyone can stick to that disqualifies meal timing? How?
  • I did provide an answer. With scientific studies, that demonstrated differences between IF and other conditions. Those differences being either weight loss or improving health bio markers. Shows the impact of meal timing.
  • Well, I did. I provided one study that showed that. Perhaps it was too challenging of a read for you. Here's another one.
  • Yeah, that's right. If you ignore reading the study, then the conclusions don't exist.
  • I look forward to your published study, peer-reviewed of course, validating your opinions.
  • Scroll up and read the conclusion comparison IF to other subjects. Meal timing made a difference.
  • I'm not going to repeat the conclusion of the studies. Scroll up and re-read. Comparison of IF with others not doing it showed results that were favourable to IF. As in meal timing makes a difference. Simple.
  • Your statement based on your opinion was disqualified in the studies I provided.
  • What???? Is this a joke?
  • Your conclusion (opinion) was disqualified in the studies I provided.
  • Instead of "opinion", please show a study that demonstrates your point. The studies I provided disqualifies your statement...ahem.."opinion".
  • So, your conclusion is that intermittent fasting does not work for 19 year old males.
  • Magic? I highly doubt it. Scientific evidence with broad spectrum of types of subjects, however....indeed quite compelling.
  • I also provided other studies that included men.
  • I already provided published articles that demonstrated how metabolic markers were shifted in the positive direction.
  • I look forward to reviewing your published explanation on what to do with the null hypothesis under the condition of p value 0.4. Could be a very entertaining read.
  • There were dudes in the obese women doing IF study I provided? Really? Where?
  • Out there, as in peer-reviewed, scientific studies. Not "opinions" without data or facts, which seems to be in an overwhelming supply on MFP.
  • Yes, I know what it means. And this is the direct quote from the paper: "Reductions in fasting insulin and insulin resistance were modest in both groups, but greater with IER than with CER" If you refute this, I look forward to your published, peer-reviewed article.
  • There are several studies out there...different types of subjects used. Here's an example
  • I answered this in another forum. I will answer here again. Cheese crisps with guacamole dip or artichoke dip. Mini caprese salad skewers (with bocconcini mozzarella and basil leaf and cherry tomato, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil). Tiny meatballs with mozzarella cheese center. Smoked salmon pinwheels with cream…
