Glad it's working for ya kleen. Like I said diets there are many paths for many individuals. For me the fast part wasn't any different results wise than any other similar diet or cutting program, and I am pretty sure I have ran it longer than anyone on this thread. Maybe not though, I haven't read through every post. I still prefer my own tweaked out diet combination and eating around 5 meals a day.
Most people I see doing diets could likely reach their goals if they just ate cleaner and stuck with it. The main point about any bodybuilding diet or workout plan is sticking to it IMO. You have to experiment to know what works for ya though.
I know IF can help me break away from eating every few hours, but I still do that during my 8hr window. I have my lunch at noon, 2 separate snacks at work afterwards, my postworkout shake, and finally my last meal. I like it spread out that way though so its more preference and routine I guess. I have been doing the I/F diet for a little over a week and have seen some leaning out in my midsection and have become very accustomed to this way of eating. I really don't see any reason to go back to eating any other way.
I work at 7AM and my last meal of the day is around 8PM. MY breaks at work vary and I want to try this diet, but I am not sure how to go about it. Wake up at 6, Take 10G bcaa and ALCAR with dexaprine and then i usually work from 7am to 4pm so should I not eat that whole time, then hit the gym around 430 and THEN have my first meal post workout around 630? Seems like ill have very little calorie intake, and how could I get my protein in? Is a shake in the morning or throughout the day okay?
I'm working so hard at funding my BMR and rmr and counting calories and doing this and that, I hope it pays off
Hey just got this email. Thought it would apply:
My mom sent me a text the other day about a study out of the
University of Utah (She's always looking out for me!). Apparently,
according to this study, people who fast one day a month are
40 percent less likely to be diagnosed with clogged arteries than those
who did not regularly fast.
Sounds like great news, especially if you are like me and fast
6 to 8 times per month.
Unfortunately, after looking over the study, I did a google
search to see what the newswires were reporting and found
some very disheartening news bytes.
According to an article I found on Yahoo News, when asked to
comment on the study a doctor from the Mayo
Clinic (who was not involved in the study), stated "Fasting
resets the metabolic rate".
Now I'm not sure what this particular Doc meant by "resets", and he
was probably speaking about long term fasting,
but the author of the article on Yahoo News added these
words after Doc's quote "slowing it down to adjust to
less food and forcing the body to store calories as soon as
people resume eating".
These words cannot possibly be from the Doctor. They just can't
be. There is no way I can accept that a doctor being interviewed
about research would make such an incorrect statement, especially
since it was in reference to a 24 hour fast.
This begs the question, why is the mainstream media so
afraid to tell people to eat less? Why is it that when research
on the benefit of brief periods of fasting comes out, people
have to comment on the dangers of long term chronic fasting.
Instead of just explaining that as little as one 24 hour fast
per month can reduce your chances of being diagnosed with
clogged arteries, they have to start digging to find something,
(completely unrelated to the study), so they can throw some
negative comments into the fray.
If you've read Eat Stop Eat, you know that metabolism does
not decrease during brief fasting. This has been found in lean and
obese people, men and women, adults and children. The research
is really very strong in this area! In fact, evidence suggests that
your metabolism may even go UP during a fast!
I know it will be an up hill battle, but my goal is to make
the use of brief periods of fasting a respected and established
method of weight control...because it is easy and because it
yah I signed up for e-mails from this. After I went to the lean gains site. Im looking inot this more later today. Just thought id share
that would be better known as spam for selling diet plans
This space for rent
Come visit my log http://anabolicminds.com/forum/suppl...-up-level.html
LOL. Yeah well Im not into there diet plans. Some info I receive IS useful.
From what I was just reading. I guess Its a mormon practice.
There was actually an article about it in the New York Times last month
Did they have to do it in special underwear?
mormons do practice fasting. they fast on the first sunday of every month for the first 2 meals and the belief is that the money that would've been spent on those meals will go to help those that are less fortunate. so essentially they fast for 24 hours once a month with dinner the night before being the last meal until dinner the next night. they also fast in times of blessings (i.e. upcoming surgery, onset of severe medical conditions)
Hey kleen thanks for the invite. I don't have a ton to add as I didn't read through the thread but Martins system of fasting is fantastic for most people. I only use it while dieting as I have throuble eating enough to bulk in the window. But when cutting it takes away hunger pain and its so much better to feel full a few times a day than not. So I eat 2 big meals when cutting.
Martins info along with Alan aragon and jcd fitness all broke me of the eat clean BS. I love pancakes, fried noodles, ect and work then in my diet year around. Especially after workouts I kill 200+ carbs of pancakes or noodles and a shake.
I agree with you 100%. I fell into the whole idea that you have to eat 6 small clean meals a day when cutting to see results, but IF and Lean Gains has shown that is entirely false. During a traditional cut, I'm hungry the entire day even after a meal, vs. feeling full after breaking my fast on IF and my body adjusts to the fasting period so I don't feel super hungry too. The leniency in the diet is great too. I've dropped 4% BF in a little over a month, and I've enjoyed my share of Pizza and burgers and the like!!
A win win if you ask me!

Any idea on how the shift in ghrelin affects GH pulses? Is it better or worse for GH release?
I was thinking of doing cjc-1295 DAC in the evenings (500mcg EOD) and Ipamorelin (150mcg ED) in the evenings and mornings to take advantage of the fasting times, and get a big GH boost. Thoughts?
I'm gonna throw this in on non training days maybe on training days too so i can gradually get myself to 16 hours. I love eating but i'm willing to do what it takes to be more efficient and get better results
I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me
