ABSTRACT

An extreme protocol including one month of intense exercise (HIIT (high intensity interval training)) and exclusive supplement consumption, i.e. no food, was undertaken by one participant, in order to understand the effects of one month of exercise without eating any food. The purpose was to acquire some initial data for future studies so that better exercise programs may be designed for both time-restricting athletic programs, and individuals who wish to combine fast fat-reduction and the improvement of their physical form. There was a parallel methodological goal to examine changes synthetically and not analytically, that is, to compensate for a gap in literature in regard to the absence of synthetic models. Changes in the participant (male, 34 y.o.,72 kg, BMI: 22.9) included a 21.20% relative reduction in body fat (3.9% in absolute values), a 2.6% reduction in body weight coupled with a 1.8% increase in fat-less mass, a 10% increase in maximum leg extension and a 6% increase in maximum chest press. Blood creatinine (+56%) and blood urea (+35%), as well as SGOT (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase) (+45%), SGPT (Serum Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase) (+75%) and Lymphocytes (+45%) were markedly increased. HIIT and exclusive supplement consumption, intermittent fasting and hypocaloric diet for one month drastically affected the individual in this case study by drastically improving his physical form, at the cost of worsening important biochemical markers.
