I have been using the below fasting protocol that I'd like to use for intermittent fasting -
Fast duration - Sunday night (10-11pm) to Tuesday morning (4:30am)
Consumed during fast - Only water (2-4L) and black sugarless tea/coffee (2-3 cups). Absolutely no other foods or beverages (no additional micro/macro nutrients) is taken during the fast duration.
- Is this fasting protocol healthy? Any medical studies/literature explaining why it would be health/unhealthy?
- If the answer to #2 is negative, then wouldn't intermittent fasting in a paleo type of diet context be unhealthy as well? My understanding is that it'll involve similar type of fasting protocol but on alternate days.
