Nutrition expert Dr. John Berardi serves up an introductory summary of his research into extended fasting.
Nutrition is a really hot topic in the CrossFit community, but with the debate centering on whether to eat Paleo or Zone, I’m afraid another eating style is completely flying under the radar.
Careful, folks. You don’t want to miss this one.
It’s called intermittent fasting (IF), and while it’s certainly not for everyone, there are athletes in the CF community who would absolutely benefit from playing around with it.
Now, before you pick up your Zone or Paleo toys and go home, here’s the interesting thing: you can still Zone or Paleo while experimenting with IF.
I’ll tell you how.
Dr. Berardi will answer nutrition questions live on Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. to noon EST on the CrossFit Journal's Facebook page.
