A Look at Fasting, Dining & Training
Some people were surprised to see Dan John writing about his experiences with intermittent fasting, since in his early writing he wrote of the importance of breakfast. In this talk, he lays out his new ideas, including the concepts of elimination and deprivation.
“Many people don’t seem to have a time of year when they plant the seeds for success later in the year. Of course, this always ends up meaning medium training all the time—something I think the body hates—so I decided to talk about a couple of things. But the biggest thing is this: Deprivation leads to increased capacities.“ ~Dan John
