@cdncinnamongirl:

I’ve never heard of these at all….are you interested in one of them? TBH the sound of intermittant fasting sounds very dodgy to me!

If done properly fasting and HIIT can be beneficial. You just have to be conscious of your body and your limits. I follow a paleo diet and one of the guidelines is skipping a meal or two is actually okay. I don’t fast yet, but I have just picked up a book called the Daniel Fast, which incorporates fasting and spirituality. 

Anyway, the point, do some research, do the activities in moderation, and know your limits.

HIIT can be amazing if done properly, like TheJeanses said. I enrolled in a bootcamp for a few months last summer and did it under the supervision of a trainer. My cardio endurance improved pretty dramatically and it was a great way to maximize a short workout time.

I wrote about IF on this recent thread (includes links to multiple NIH and government studies): http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/intermittent-fasting

IF is not fasting-to-starve-yourself, it’s a reaction against the idea that our bodies are equipped to handle food in our stomachs and spikes of sugar in our blood stream every 3-4 hours. Eating fewer larger meals during a narrower window of the day has promising effects on diabetes, blood sugar, blood pressure, and fat (not lean muscle) loss.

I do high intensity interval training with my boot camp as well.  Just found out that I lost about 10 pounds in the last 6 months without really trying to lose weight!
