What Will You Learn?

Intermittent fasting is a dietary protocol designed to help you towards your body goals, no matter what they are – weight loss, muscle gain, improved digestive health, etc.

However, it is fundamentally different from most other standard dietary protocols and, in many ways, it can offer a lot more flexibility. Whereas most control what you eat, intermittent fasting dictates when you eat – scheduling your daily or weekly nutrient intake to allow room for periodic fasts.

The Intermittent Fasting Diploma Course will guide you through using the dietary protocol to safely and effectively reach your goals.

In the Intermittent Fasting Diploma Course, we will explore the dietary protocol’s goals – what they are, the purposes they serve, how they are elicited, why they might be significant, and how anybody can achieve them.

To get the most from intermittent fasting, the course guides you through the fundamentals of nutrition – ensuring you know everything you need to in order to structure a balanced, healthy eating plan. This includes discussions on macronutrients – fats, carbohydrates and proteins – as well as micronutrients, in the form of vitamins and minerals.

You’ll be shown how intermittent fasting protocols can be structured, how some of the more common implementation methods work, and how they can be used to manipulate the human body for a variety of outcomes.

We’ll explore intermittent fasting’s use for weight loss, hypertrophy (muscle gain), insulin health, digestive health, the health of the internal organs, protection against certain diseases, longevity, improved energy levels and gastric comfort.

We’ll take an in-depth look at how to incorporate intermittent fasting into other eating plans and how to incorporate other eating plans into intermittent fasting. Whether it is a high-protein diet, a keto diet, a Mediterranean diet, or any different protocol that regulates what should be eaten, we will discuss how to align it with the goals of intermittent fasting.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Know how to use intermittent fasting safely and effectively
  • Understand the benefits and uses of intermittent fasting
  • Learn about the nutritional requirements of the body
  • Be able to use intermittent fasting to reach specific goals

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
