As weird as it sounds, I incidentally moved into an intermittent fasting diet from around June 2018 because I was experience a lot of gas and some worse than normal lower back issues which have plagued me since early 2010.
I figured it was a good idea to have less volume of food in my gut for the majority of the day so that it would give my stomach, intestines and front and back core muscles a break from the almost constant waking digestion process that we find ourselves in eating 3-6 meals per day!
To my surprise, it began to work! The gas subsided within a few days and reducing the pressure from having so much food in my gut helped keep me feeling light and able to move more freely throughout my core which helped my back issues.
I would like to say this is a “cure-all” for lower back issues, but it is not. It is however, an excellent way to reduce gas and stomach bloating plus the amazing added benefit of dropping a lot of body fat to get that year round healthy, ripped and lean looking body.
It has now been just over 3 months of eating this way, intermittent fasting on an 16/8 or sometimes 20/4 split, and I have noticed an incredible amount of fat loss to the point that I am always lean with a six pack, tons of muscle definition all the while eating all the food that I want to.
I had several comments about my physique and diet on Instagram, so I thought I’d share what I eat in a day (oh my God, the dreaded “what I eat in a day” videos! 😱 lol) on a vegan intermittent fasting diet consisting of at least a 16 hour fasting window which begins after my last bites of food around 7-8pm in the evening and rolls all the way through until 11am-12pm the following day when I break my fast which leaves me with an approximate 8 hour eating window.
On occasion, I have done a “Warrior Diet” or almost a “One Meal A Day” protocol which reduces the eating window to 4 hours or just 1-2h hours respectively.
The main point I’d like to note, is that this is not meant to be a strict diet. It is an eating window protocol with NO caloric restrictions and the eating windows are averaged out over time, just as your calories are. It is NOT a day-by-day target orientated program. The figures are merely guidelines to adhere to the majority of the time.

Happy Fasting and here’s to a leaning, stronger, happier and healthier you!
