Honestly I'm finding the fasting period incredibly easy to get through - except Saturday, I got really nauseous. I won't pass any assessment with the diet so far, but one thing that's for sure is it's helping me lean out. I don't think it has anything to do with fasting as much as it does having all my meals at the end of the day. It allows me to feel full after eating less, so I can have a steeper deficit (on off days) than I usually do without much effort. I'm only somewhat concerned about eating anything in the A.M. the morning after working out (during recovery). I'll wait and see how things go.
