    Can you have low sugar alcohol during the 8hrs you can eat.

    Some people are able to incorporate alcohol in moderation, and on occasion while losing weight but Dr Fung recommends avoiding it.

    FYI, dexa scans are more complicated than most realize. For example, dexa scans rarely tell the difference between lean tissue and lean tissue infused with fat. If you lose the fat that was embedded in the lean tissue the dexa scan can look like you lost a lot of lean tissue though it might have been more fat that lean tissue. My dexa scan provider never mentioned this to me and I freaked out until I did my own research and learned what was missing.

    The key is the low carb high fat. It takes approximately 7-10 days to become fat adapted. Once you are in the state of ketosis, your body will produce ketones to dispose of the fat in your diet as well as your body for energy. There is no storage as is the case of consuming carbohydrates. When intermittent fasting (16:8) and following a low carb/high fat diet, it doesn’t take the entire 16 hours of your fasting window to digest the food you have eating. I recommend intermittent fasting for those concerned with maintains muscle. This will allow your body to still take in the protein your body needs to maintain/repair/build muscle without sacrificing that fat burning benefits of the diet and the fast. In fact, I followed the low carb high fat diet paired with intermittent fasting and heavy resistance training and I even gained 7 pounds of muscle over the course of 12 weeks. Hope this helps.

    This is complete BS with all due respect. I am a 44 year old black woman who has been practicing intermittent fasting lifestyle for the past two years, going on three. Along with cardio and strength train 3-4 times per week which i do FASTED. I workout at least 12 hours into my fast. I do not tale any protein supplements or any other enhancing substances and I am in the best shape of my life, flat stomach, semi-athletic physique. This is my personal experience and proof that fasting does NOT cause your body to burn protein for energy or cause you to store fat.

    Fat loss does = muscle gain.

    The thing is too many people are lazy and want an easy fix. I see so many people doing intermittent fasting and one meal per day and yes they are dropping the pounds but they will end up looking like spaghetti. Slim and soft with no shape and tone to their body because they are not doing any form of strength training or body weight exercise to build/preserve muscle.

    Fastng is amazing, no doubt, and its a god send for myself and millions.

    But it is not a panacea for health and fitness. Your goal shouldn't be just to lose weight, but to be fit and healthy.

    You cant optimize your health without including exercise.

    Dont blame fasting for muscle loss if your'e not doing anything to gain or maintain muscle.

    How can people expect to engage in a long term fasting protocol and not lose ANY muscle whatsoever without taking any action to gain, preserve or maintain muscle mass?

    Did you have muscle tone at 400 pounds? Why would you expect to have any at 150 pounds without doing anything to achieve or maintain it?

    Let's be sensible here.

    Thank you Sandra!
    I’m about to embark on this fast to lower my 200 morning sugars. I’m a bit nervous but very optimistic. I hope I have the strength and the motivation to go through with it. My 8.0 A1C scares the life out of me. Thank you for sharing your total experience, not just posting critical comments. Perhaps once I achieve my goals I can help someone else, the way you helped me. I’m thankful to Dr. Fung for his message. I have been watching the videos for some time. It’s time to put myself to this test.

    I am 57 next month and I have worked out for years.. I try to do no less then 20 mins for Hiit or metcom or whatever every morning. I have been struggling with my weigh since menopause. I have done low carb for months with really no loss maybe a little. this past year i have started fasting , first it was 16 to 18 hours few days a week then 20 hours every other day. I have not experienced any weight loss.. I have been told i need a balanced diet because my cortisol levels are high.. I have been told low carb and or keto is bad for women in menopause because of the hormone changes..I know i am retaining about 15 lbs of water weight alone but cant seem to even get that down. So enlighten me.. Anyone have suggestion??

    Sweet N Low has artificial sweeteners that we recommend avoiding. You can read more about what sweeteners are a better option here - https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto/sweeteners
