Could you do this?

This guy eats one enormous meal a day, says he is not hungry and has good blood work and a good weight.

Intermittent fasting is a recognised and healthy way to lose weight. There are different variations on this: Some people use a 16:8 fast, where they eat during 8 hours and fast the other 16  hours in the day.

Some people fast on a 5:2 basis, where they eat only 500 calories on 2 days of the week (often Mondays and Thursdays) and eat what they like the rest of the week.

This guy has taken it what seems to be a step further, looks like a 23:1 fasting diet, where he eats during 1 hour of the day and fasts the rest of the time.

Do you think you could do this?

Fasting is a healthy way to lose weight, (except for diabetics) provided you are not starving yourself, however, if you have had eating problems in the past, fasting diets are NOT suitable for you.

If you have any health concerns about your weight or your nutrition or weight loss, consult your doctor or a qualified nutritionist or dietitian.
