It’s almost impossible to hide from the news and discussion about the obesity epidemic that’s taking both lives and shattering the quality of life world wide. It’s in the papers, on television and being blogged about on the internet almost endlessly.
If that’s not enough, unless you’re blind it’s hard to walk the streets of any big city or small town and not see the end product of this epidemic first hand.
The hard brutal truth is that people are getting fatter and fatter and this is a real health crisis that only a fool could ignore. There’s plenty of reasons for this here are just the most blindingly apparent…
Many People Eat Way too Much Way too Often.
It’s a hard truth that can’t be escaped. The human body wasn’t designed by nature to eat as much and as often as most people do.
This packs on the flabby pounds as our bodies, which are machines that were designed for survival in not so great circumstances are pampered and overfed in a cushy and soft environment. Remove a bit of hunger from our lives and we will pack on fat and pack it on at lightning speed.
A Widespread Avoidance of Exercise.
After overeating the next huge issue is under exercising. Having less physical jobs as well as social lives that revolve around the digital rather than the physical once again takes our bodies away from what they were designed for: running, lifting, hunting and playing.
The less muscle we carry the lower our metabolism which means even more fat is packed on. Do you see a pattern developing?

The Feast and Famine Diet may be new in name, but in practice has been with us for quite some time. It’s the latest tweak on an area of diet programs and ideas less catchingly referred to as Intermittent Fasting.
Intermittent Fasting is the rage in health, fitness and weight loss circles with it’s ideas making it to publication and wide practice.
It’s popular because it works! Here’s the important guiding principles of Feast and Famine, what gives the diet its power.


Try not to stray too far from this foundation if you expect to reap the full rewards of Feast and Famine…

Choose Your Fasting Schedule

There’s two approaches generally. The first is alternating Feast days with Famine days, which is personally the method I have seen produce the best weight loss results.
The second variant, and this is what you will see in intermittent fasting diets like the 5:2 Diet is to eat normally five days and fast two.
Our Guide’s information works well with both methods, although once again I prefer the first for best long term results as well as ease of use and likelihood of being able to stick with Feast and Famine.

Feasting Guidelines

There’s not many. I suggest broadly not eating anything that’s junk food or packed with empty calories especially if you are looking to burn off a lot of weight.

This will also safeguard your overall health, which is important isn’t it? Make sure you get in your fruit and vegetables, but don’t be afraid to indulge without binge eating.
The fact you have more food freedom at least half the time will make your Famine days much easier to manage psychology. And succeeding on any diet, Feast and Famine included, is 90% a mental game. In this mental dieting game no diet stacks the deck more in your favor than Feast and Famine.

Famine Guidelines

For those needing to drop serious pounds, 500 calories a day on Famine days is a good starting point. This can be adjusted as needed once your weight loss goals are met.

Most Feast and Famine enthusiasts like to stay around this area to continue to both reap the health benefits of fasting and to also be able to maintain their Feasting freedom on their Feast days.
* Stay Hydrated. Fasting expert or if you have never fasted in any form before alike, I cannot stress enough the importance of staying hydrated.
When your body detoxes on your Famine days and starts to move out some of the junk you have built up, it will go much smoother if you are drinking a proper amount of water.
Ignore this advice and you may just experience some stomach pains, along with the lethargy and weakness that always comes with dehydration regardless of your diet plan.
