I just finished a 5-day water fast – using the two Pique fasting teas for help – and after discovering Peter Attia, and his dietary philosophy, I am now thinking what I’ve been calling my daily “Intermittent Fasting” routine is really, “Time Restricted Feeding.”
Here’s the link for Dr. Attia’s video that made me consider these definitions:
I’m on a Vegan 18/6 diet that I do every day from 6am to Noon, and Huel plays a large role in that diet.
I have always called that plan, “Intermittent Fasting” – but it does seem to make more sense that what I’m actually doing is, “Time Restricted Feeding” and not really Intermittent Fasting.
I do plan to do days-long fasts in the future – true Intermittent Fasting – and I think it may be important to make a distinction, with a difference, between the two ideals, for both the sake of sanity, and clarity.
I’m curious to know your take on this, and how you plan to label, moving forward, your current restricted eating plan, and any future water/tea fasts you may decide to implement.
I thank you!
