Ok, been doing the day on/day off IF routine. On my feed day am I supposed to be making up calories lost on the fast day? In other words eating double? Or is it a restricted calorie approach?

I believe on IF you are supposed to still get the same amount of calories...just in a shorter amount of time....all depends on how long you are fasting for....

IF is not a restricted calorie approach. Eat two days worth of food on your feed day. In theory, this will give you many of the same benefits as calorie restriction (health and longevity), without the negatives of calorie restriction (most notably, loss of muscle).

Now I'm a bit confused. I was reading Dr. Dan Eades (Protein Power) blog on his version of IF and he said to eat normally, maybe a bit more, during feeding times. BTW, he also also prefers a different split, i.e. Day one you eat from 6:00 AM to 6PM, Day 2 you eat from 6PM until you retire for bed, then repeat. Just curious as to what most people here prefer.

Some people IF a whole day....some only restrict eating to say between say between noon and 6pm....many different approaches....or as one might say "Intermittent" even.

Why?

I don't understand CR/IF. Even if it extends human lifespan by 10 years, by the time I'm 80-90, methinks I'll regret a lifetime of fasting or diet restriction in exchange for ten more years of arthritis and diapers...

None for me, thanks.

Skylar, the objective is not only to live longer, but to also live better. It seems pretty clear from the scientific literature and from anectdotal reports that IF increases both life span and quality of life. While utilizing IF you should note an increase in energy, performance, and health and a decrease in body fat and sickness. Give it a try, I bet you'll come out with a different mind-set.

oxidative stress = faster aging

oxidative stress comes from excessive stress, exercise and high calorie food digestion....

Aging is a disease....aging is when the rate of destruction is greater than the rate of repair....we all get older, we dont have to age.....most people have issues at 50 and 60....not 80.....Living in my opinion is walking around being able to do what I want.....not being on meds and using a cane to get around....your choice.
