The first time I ever heard of Intermittent Fasting was actually from Robb Wolf, who's sort of a Paleo evangelist.
So for all of the people that have asked me if they can combine their fasting with a Paleo diet, the answer is yes.
It's actually very simple:
Your Intermittent Fasting program dictates the WHEN TO EAT
and your Paleo Program dictates the WHAT TO EAT
And that's it.
They don't compete at all.
What About Meso?
The hardcore Paleo types never allow a free day. Paleo is Paleo, and if you have a free day, it's still Paleo. So your free day you might go crazy with bananas and strawberries or something.
Which is why I created Meso - so that there would be a distinction for mostly Paleo.
Well, I've kind of assumed that your intermittent fasting program has a free day. And your free day is definitely Meso.
I would also go Meso on your Warrior Diet day.
I would stay Paleo on your 16/8 fast days.
Your Intermittent Fasting Week:
1 x Free Day = Neo/Whatevery You Want
1 x Full Fast Day = n/a
2 x Warrior Diet Day(s) = Meso (Paleo + Brown Rice, Quinoa or Sprouted Grains)
3 x 16/8 Fast Days = Strict Paleo
But WAIT! Should I do the Carb Cycling Meso Program from two weeks ago's blog or the Intermittent Fasting Meso Program from today's blog?
Either one. But choose one, and do it for 12 solid weeks. The re-evaluate.
Switching sooner than that would be a mistake. Do one or the other, and do it completely.
