- The CRON diet (Calorie Restriction with Optimal Nutrition)-Pretty much you eat 3/4 of the meals the average person your age and sex does and it is high quality foods such as fruits and veggies. Low in fats and Proteins.
- The prolonged fasting diet where you go typically 2-4 days without consuming anything but water, no calorie teas and liquids (not diet soda).
- The Alternate Day Fasting (ADF)-Eat 400 to 600 calories based off age/sex and then eat as many calories you'd like the following day with any sort of foods you would like. It is also referred to as the fast/feast diet.
- The last was a hybrid of the ADF diet: Eat 5 days of the food you like and then fast/restrict your diet.
So if you are struggling with yo-yo dieting and all these BS cutting carbs out or cutting this out, really look into trying this.
Last note: One other big observations I agree with, protein is not something that is needed in the amount Americans consume it. I ate hardly any protein while training for my race other than turkey, chicken and fish when I went out for dinners, your body only needs some protein for muscle strengthening/rehabbing.
