    That's what I'm curious of... I'll be starting my Alphamine + Vanillean in the morning. I train fasted as well and I'm curious how you re-fuel after your workout. I'm guessing it's best to force a protein bar/shake afterwards?

    I train fasted in the AM and take Vanillean around 930am to get me through the morning. I am doing IF 6 days a week, with feed between 12-8. Some days I have to force myself to eat because I know its time according to my brain.

    I have noticed that with the temps increasing I am getting more of a thermo effect, I didn't really notice any thermo effect up until this week.

    Yea, all I'm noticing, so far, is the coldness in my extremities. It also has, definitely, curbed my appetite as well. I still have to keep track of time, though, so I won't starve myself...

    I've been intermittent fasting on and off for ~10years now, before I even knew what to call it. It's just the eating style that makes the most sense to me. I take some BCAAs throughout the day, but not eating until 4 isn't really that hard, considering the awesome feasts I get to come home to every night.

    For example, last night I ate:

    - 1lb of beer-ass chicken with 8oz roasted potato and veggies
    - 1lb of Mahi-mahi split up into 3 tacos with low-carb tortillas and chipotle coleslaw
    - A 100g Pro shake with liquid egg whites, greek yogurt, strawberries, raw honey, chia, and pepto-pro
    - ~70g Cho from Coconut flour/oatmeal raisin 'cookies'

    that's not included peri-workout nutrition, which provides a lot of aminos and some carbs too.

    How long is your feed window? At 8 hours I have trouble getting in all my food, sounds like your window is half mine.

    I don't have one. I eat when I get home from the gym until I go to bed, whenever that may be. My wife and I lay out meal plans ahead of time to make sure we really enjoy/look forward to everything we eat - this help keep us from cheating, and helps us get in all our macros.

    Vanillean in the morning and afternoon, along with BCAA and sometimes alphamine or AT2, keeps me sated the rest of the time.

    Damn! That sounds good. I feel you. Im sort of the same way. I drink two shakes in the morning and I don't eat until 5pm just like you lol. But my shakes consist of protein, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and blueberries. Both basically the same exact way. No amino acids though until intra workout.

    I am becoming a believer. But I think it would be hard to make it through the morning post-workout without Vanillean. Especially being on Endosurge Turbo right now as well. Hunger hit me hard at 1140am, but I lasted the 20 minutes till noon.

    I do the same a couple of times per week. It doesn't necessarily have to be an every day kind of thing. BCAAs (I've been using 4Mula) added to a scoop of whey in the morning works VERY well.

    The cravings take about a week to go away. It's the hardest part but it's cake after that first week. Just keep aminos in your post workout drink and you are solid.

    Just want to say everything resolve said is what I do EXACTYL it's so nice knowing when u get home u can just chow on so much muscle building food and be a bottomless pit. I love IF and was doing it years before I knew it had a name and following as well. I don't break my fast til like 6pm though and use a 4-5 hour window. Bed minimum 2 hours post meal for complete digestion. I have NOOO problems getting macros in in 4 hours lol.

    Ps- starting vanillean in 2 weeks with oxyeca black

    Awesome man! Yeah, once you get into the swing of it, it just feel natural. Oxyeca/Vanillean should be an intense stack, holy cow!

    Probably gonna start back IFing this summer. With my current schedule it's a little difficult given that my free time to workout is early morning. I suppose I could fast at the end of the day but that doesn't seem nearly as likely.

    It's just sooooo much easier to not overeat on IF. And like Resolve said, it's basically eating a feast every day.

    This is my schedule and I have been eating IF for almost 3 weeks. 630am gym session, 12-8 feed window. BCAA's throughout morning.

    Didn't think about the BCAAs to help stave off hunger until later. Thanks for the idea.

    They help a ton in my experience, especially if you workout way before you get to eat.

    Agree 100%, do not think I could make it through till noon without BCAA's.

    On workout days the first feed is pretty fun, I typically eat about 40% of my calories.
