  • Intermittent Fasting.

    Anyone tried this?


  • #2
    (Only for a short time... Didn't make sense to do intermittent fasting. Found myself asking myself the question, why am I doing this when I could just as well fast properly. It wasn't really in line with what I was looking to get out of training/working out either.

    I​​​​​ found keeping a regular fast and eating during the windows after iftaar meant it was similar in effect on the body. For myself that is. Probably didn't do it long enough to form a proper opinion on it, but the carb cycling element of it you ought to get just from a normal fast. Allahu a'lam.)

      I did it just to challenge myself. I still do it from time to time but unintentionally cuz i forget to eat. I did the warrior version (20:4).

        Why is your whole post in brackets?
        You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

        You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.

          (The post was probably not too relevant to OP sister. Guessing different reasons for doing IF. Also, was a quite limited experience with it, so again, probably not much use in that sense too.

          I posted partly because it had been left unanswered to that point, also so it might attract more useful responses. Feel like I've just explained myself out of having committed a hefty crime! :] ... Charged with unnecessary and excessive use of brackets. :p )

            fixed

            Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to his own goodness and act on it.

              The warrior version is alright, maybe once/twice a week. I've been doing it non-stop for a while now, there are a lot of health benefits associated with IF.

              What got you into it?

                Yes, of course - nothing can surpass the spiritual/physical effects of fasting the Islamic way.

                I think it becomes a lifestyle if you continue it non-stop, and there are a lot of health benefits of eating within a certain time window.

                Also - working out in the 'fasted' state has more of an impact on your training - you see better results in short period of time.

                  /thread- I'm interested in this fasting at certain times thing but, and it's a big BUT, I'm so disorganised and forget to eat so I doubt I'd be very successful. Does it make you feel more energised because I've been feeling tired a lot more lately

                    To cure my stomach issues. And also to find a balance with both training and food consumtion. Worked wonders.

                    Even training became more effective.

                      I'd say that it gives a person a lot more energy.

                        Yes it does. Did it cure your stomach issues? It's helped me with my tea addiction.

                          It stopped me from eating everything I found. I got a hold of myself cuz I don't want to "lose to myself". It was a challenge. And I passed.

                          sadly 20:4 did not cure anything. I had to cut it and make it 12:12. My mid could handle it, but my stomach gave up so I ended up shortening it. Also, I need energy for studies, it's har without food for 20 hours

                            never done it but I was planning on making it a must to fast Thursdays and Mondays, that could have similar benefits perhaps?

                            So, which of the favours of your lord will you deny? ~ Surah Ar Rahman

                              the difference is that intermittent fasting is a lifestyle. You just eat food in a different time during the day and fast the rest. Water, black coffee and tea without sugar is alright to drink during the fast.
                              So if you need 2500 KCAL a day, then you gotta eat that much before fasting. if you're fasting for 20hours then you need to eat 2500KCAL during the 4 hours you're allowed to consume food.
