Experiences with Intermittent Fasting

Page 3 of 3 First 123

  1. so if im trying to bulk the idea is that i fast for 16 hours...including sleep, and then try to get in my 3300 cals or so within the remaining 8 hours, no matter how i do it, fat, carbs etc. (obv. keeping protein high) ?

    There are several different fasting routines. Warrior diet, East Stop Eat, etc

    I did try the not eating for 24 hours once, but just once - not enough to give it a judgement either way. I usually stick to a 16/8 or 18/6 fast/feed.

  3. but the idea is to get all ur cals (3300 or so in my case) in this 6/8 hour window? als what about types of food, is it ok to mix up fat rotein carbs and maybe sum junk in there too or is the idea t just do fats and prtein or protein and carbs at certain times

    when I did the full alternate day fasting - working out at 7am empty stomach, start eating at 830, eat the next 13 hours till getting ready to bed, then fast through the entire next day and repeat this on the second day - i had 35 hours fasted, 13 eating. And I damn well ate anything whatsoever, just trying to make sure that i was regularly taking in protein one way or another. Glasses of milk with oreos smeared with peanut butter for instance

    Overall its just making sure you still the get the calories and your general macro goals in, so if you are shooting for 200g protein and 80g healthy fats, so long as you get those its not entirely critical where the rest come from. Sure avoid high fructose corn syrup, but outside of that....

  5. hmmm i might try the 16/8 idea gonna take sum plannin ot in regards to wrokouts and what not though i usually work out later in teh day so im gonn ahve to look into how to do that....any sugggestions?

    pretty simple, don't start eating till 1 in the afternoon, eat thru till 9pm.

    Dude, read the post titled the leangains guide on leangains.com. It is straight forward.

  8. This is cool, ive read this many times. Might have to try one day. Anyone eat a lot and fast once a week?

  9. I think my fat ass will have to try something along these lines.

  10. yea maybe ill jsut fast completely on an off daay and jsut eat whatever I want all day the next day......and make sure to train legs that day too lol

    This is close to what I do. The fasting days are hard, but the eating days are nice - I still monitor my cals though.

    yepper. for me it was 6000 calories/0 calories. Fun to stuff down 6k in a day, the beauty was I didn't feel bad about having 6 eggs, 4 slices of bacon, 4 pancakes and half a cup of maple syrup for breakfast

  15. gotta try that lol.....how were your energy levels though....I have a football game tomrorow and was thinking of trying it out but don't wanna be dead.....

  16. then dont start it tomorrow. After a week or two, energy levels seemed workable, but first couple of fast days will drive you crazy

  17. damn...well its onyl like flag football, i just relaly wanan be able to eat liek a pig the next day lol

  18. well, you don't really start seeing max hormonal benefits till after 3-6 weeks on it, so you want to make sure you start out successfully so that you do keep it up is all.

    No. I eat like I would on a normal day, accordingly to my goals.

    I could do this, as long as i went right to bed at 10:00 pm and slept untill noon the next day.

  21. this seems very doable, i may have to play with this sooner rather then later
