Thoughts on Intermittent fasting BULKING

  1. Thoughts on Intermittent fasting BULKING


    What are everyoneís thoughts on IF Bulking. Works great for losing fat, but can it work bulking?


  2. It is just an eating schedule. It will not provide any additional benefits versus eating in a larger window. The one issue you may have, especially if bulking with a lot of calories, is being bloated in your eating window. Personally, 3,000+ calories in a 6-8 hour window would not sit well in my stomach.

    I've done it before when bulking and recomping ( fits my schedule really well as a college student). It is possible but as already stated be ready for a massive bloat/ sick feeling after first meal lol. Sometimes it was hard to get the calories in. I had to pound shakes (milkshakes), cookies, and stuff like that because I couldn't take the volume of broccoli and chicken. So if your a "healthy eater" in that way, good luck. But ya totally doable and actually super fun when you pound a 3000 Cal meal haha

    Yeah, Iíd love to go on a binge fest like that every night. But Iím trying to eat clean food at least 85% of the meals. Maybe one weekend day a week let lose a bit.

    Do any of you guys ever just use the fasting model during cutting?

    no such thing as clean or dirty foods. food labeling can easily develop an ED. everything in moderation. hit your micros and macros with whatever foods you want while maintaining your caloric goal.

  8. There is a such thing as healthy and unhealthy foods. When I say clean I am referring to healthy foods....

  9. So if a Twinkie is considered unhealthy....how come in a study/ test done where a man eating primary only twinkies as a source of calories and nutrition was able to lose body fat, decrease ldl and increase hdl, drop his triglycerides and cholesterol levels and improve body composition is a complete BS experiment? I eat the same things regardless of whether I’m bulking or cutting. Yes there are more optimal ways to do it, but labeling a food healthy or unhealthy is very subjective. The only thing that will differ is your micronutrients. But saying I’m going to eat skin on chicken and rice with 25 fat, 60 carb, and 50 protein, is no different than saying I’m going to eat an “unhealthy” labeled pizza with the same macros. Clean and dirty bulks are generally referred to the surplus you put your body in, not the specificity of the food.

  10. Dude. Iím saying that there are healthy foods and there are unhealthy foods. Are you debating that?

    Link to said study? Also, what was he eating before? Going from 8000 calories of ice cream and lard to 2000 calories of Twinkies is still an improvement, and ďhealthier,Ē but itís still by no means healthy. Macros are certainly a primary focus, but micronutrients shouldnít be entirely neglected.

  12. You are getting very confused due to you extreme IIFYM dogmatic position.... You jumped the gun here bud. Iím basically saying because I eat healthy foods, itís hard to get 3000 cals in during an eating window

  13. If you want to get your calories from Burger King and twinkies. Go for it.... I choose to eat healthy food options.

  14. The difference between a bulk and cut is a what several hundred calories, doing IF on either isn't going to materially change the outcome of either...
