Dr. Berg talks about the power of intermittent fasting.
This is not a diet, but a pattern of eating.
Why does it work?
Because it triggers Growth Hormone and inhibits insulin.
The purpose of intermittent fasting is to lower insulin, take the stress off insulin and the gland that makes it – pancreas, and thus restore your metabolism. This can heal a plateaued set-point. If you have fat in your mid-section, then we know you have high insulin.

Start with 3 meals per day, no snacking.
Then do 3 meals per day but only eating your 3 meals in a 8 hour window, thus fasting for 16 hours.
Ultimately, you want to fast for 20 hours and eat within a 4 hour window – 2 meals per day. If you add exercise, high intensity interval training, you can greatly enhance Growth Hormone even more.
