Not sure if this is the right place for this.

Anyway, Bassem Youssef made a post about water fasting which was pretty interesting ( but I had questions about the impact of intermittent fasting which he mentioned as part of his training to do the 4-day water fast. (Unrelated: he tested the Muslim-free gun store movement here:

I’m not religious by any means. But my family is. Ramadan is fasting from sunrise to sunset and that can mean up to 18ish hours without food or water during summer months. The fast is typically “opened/broken” at sunset with a date and a plethora of fried foods followed by carb-heavy meals, sometimes consumed up until sunrise of the following day. For people that observe this, what kind of effects on one’s health does this have? I haven’t been able to pinpoint anything specifically; most people cite weight loss as a huge positive outcome but I think there’s more bad than good.

Note: for the sake of this argument, the person fasting may have 20-25 minutes of cardio-related exercise 3-4 times per week when not fasting and 1-2 per week when fasting but eating like shit during that time.

There's more good than bad on this type of fasting.

Many I train with, do these types of fasting.

I have experimented with fasting. The benefits on overall weight loss, health and longevity are there and I typically feel great when I fast or even better just eat one meal per day. It’s not the best for bodybuilding however the leangains protocol is a form of intermittent fasting and also works for bodybuilding and getting ripped.
