    I'm kinda in the same boat and I actually like doing a shortened window on the rest days. The caloric goal is much smaller than training days so its easy to hit that target early

    Where do you guys get your numbers (calories) for what you should take in on a training day vs. a non-training day? I am sure this is goal dependent (LG, recomp, cut), and I'm interested in all 3. I tried to find this info on LG but I'm coming up short. If someone could hook me up with a link I'd appreciate it, or if they could put an answer for those 3 goals that'd be great, too.

    On another note, is one still trying to hit say around 1.2-1.5 g protein/lb on IF?

    During the fasting period, I read in here (Anabolicminds.com) people drank BCAAs, but on the LG site it seems to suggest you're straight up fasting, not eating anything except the occasional diet coke, coffee, or whatever. The exception would be if you train in the A.M. Is this true, i.e. if I train in the evening (5pm) does that I mean I would go from wake to about 12-2pm without drinking anything, or would I sip on BCAAs in the meantime?

    Lastly (this is more of a poll-type question more than anything), anybody else here use IF and not take in a lot of carbs pre-workout, but still take in a decent overall amount of carbs (if you train in the A.M., don't answer this)? I ask because in a way, I'm not carb sensitive. That is, I operate well taking in over 100g carbs a day, which I guess is still low. However, I have experimented with eating carbs throughout various meals in the day before my afternoon workout, and I've experienced ZERO benefit from this. In fact, I usually will put on fat or lose less fat if I substitute fats in my pre-workout meals with carbs. Anybody else like this?

    That's all, and thanks for any help.

    He doesn't put out specific numbers or calories because he's "saving it for the book" -- but who knows when that will finally come out. The only real suggestions I've come across are to determine what your resting expenditure is and then adjust from there based on your goals.

    I think LG is +20% calories on training days and -20% calories on rest days. From there you can adjust the calories if you wanted to focus more on bulking or cutting. Again, sorry I can't give specific calorie totals but I really don't ever see them proposed on LG.

    Yeah, MB always emphasizes it. The philosophy on a cut is that out of two diets equal in calorie content, the one with more protein will result in less fat storage. MB has the study somewhere on his blog; it might be linked from the 'alcohol damage control' post.

    I usually end up right about 1g/1lb bodyweight; slightly more on training days.

    I don't use BCAAs except for immediately pre-cardio and pre-workout (both of which come right before my FIRST meal). Some guys on here use BCAAs throughout the day, although I've had substantial success without utilizing them so frequently.

    I take in zero carbs preWO and eat ~200 in the hours after I train (usually finish lifting around 8:00PM). This works out great for me sicne I feel less energized after eating carbs -- you might be the same way!

    AMAZING response. Thank you very much.

    Yeah, about my first question regarding calories - I was actually looking for the answer you gave. I totally forgot to clarify that I wanted it in terms of maintenance numbers, not like 3700 calories, for instance, as everyone is different.

    This feedback at least gives me a pretty good base to experiment with this protocol. By the way, I used to use fitday's calculator to find out my cals and macronutrient breakdown. But what sucks is, at least with the free or online version, you can only do that for a day. So as soon as it's Monday, for instance, my calculations disappear, or I have to scroll all the way back through a digi calendar to the date I made the calculations. Is there a better website out there to do this on?

    Happy to help! Actually, here is a link to a PDF MB wrote that describes some details of the approach and includes the information on the +20%/-20% framework.

    I'm not up to date with the online calorie trackers (I've seen been less diligent in tracking exact foods and daily calories) but I agree with Easy; you could create a FitDay-esque setup in Excel and you would be good to go. Plus, you could use functions to find averages or totals or whatever else you wanted should the need ever arise.

    i usually work out after meal 2.

    eat a TON of spaghetti and chicken and an extra serving of banana and strawberries ......then the next day Eggs instead of the spaghetti and less bananas and strawberries. my weights staying the same roughly but im getting leaner i believe and a huge guy i work with told me im getting bigger today. all while my bro is eating fried chicken , doritos and candy and maintaining leanness using IF.

    on a side note : diphenhydramine is the WORST negatively body compositioning drug out there. i was taking 150mg a night to sleep and enjoy the sedated feeling and i NOTICEABLY became more vascular, and took off fat when i stopped taking it. im on day 6 without it. i read it blunts T release and GH release..which makes sense now. not to mention the hell it plays on the stomach/GI tract.

    just a tip for those using the benadryl to upregular betas
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    So do any of you do heavy manual labour (8-14+hours) with this diet during the day not including training?

    yah I like that idea, it's easier to extend the fast than spread less calories over 8 hours... I tried that Saturday and was pleased with the result.

    Yikes, that's a lot of peanut butter and banana!

    Honestly, unless you're absolutely addicted, I would try to cut that down to a single snack between lunch and dinner and use the whole banana with NaturallyMore Peanut Butter for extra protein/omega-3/fiber.

    I also think you need more whole food protein sources up front, not relying on shakes so much until dinner.

    I think an IF diet would look more like this, though I'm no expert:

    12PM (fast break): 687 cal, 87g pro, 66g carb (14g fiber), 11g fat
    10oz tuna/chicken 333 cal, 73 pro, 0 carb, 4g fat
    1 cup brocolli 54 cal, 4g pro, 12g carb (6g fiber), 1g fat
    1 cup oats or sweet potato 300 cal, 10g pro, 54g carb (8g fiber), 6g fat

    3PM Snack: 505 cal, 21g pro, 39g carb (7g fiber), 30.5g fat
    1 banana 105 cal, 1g pro, 27g carb (3g fiber), .5g fat
    4Tbsp Naturally More PB 400cal, 20g pro, 12g carb (4g fiber), 30g fat

    PWO or 6PM Dinner: 654 cal, 76g pro, 82g carb (19g fiber), 7.5g fat
    10oz chicken/extra lean beef/fish 275 cal, 57.5g pro, 0g carb, 6g fat
    3 cups spinach 123 cal, 16g pro, 21g carb (13g fiber), 1.5g fat
    8oz baked sweet potato 256 cal, 2.4g pro, 61g carb (6g fiber), 0g fat

    7:30PM Dessert:
    Protein Shake - 140 cal, 27 pro, 3 carb, 0 fat


    Totals: 1986 cal, 211g pro, 190g carb (40g fiber), 39g fat


    That's a more whole food approach to getting the protein in to feel satiated, and balanced in the 2000 calorie range. Of course on workout days you would go up 20%, and on rest days down 20%. This can be adjusted by increasing/decreasing serving sizes for carb and protein sources.

    Just thinking about this is making me hungry!!!

    Anyway, others can chime in, but I feel this would be a much better alternative using IF 16off/8on eating window.

    3 hours to go before I get to eat!!! 16oz curried Flounder waiting for me!!! NOM!

    Thanks for the link, good info!

    I use Fitday.com, and it works alright. I try to make my estimates a little higher to help me control my eating, otherwise I'd easily eat way too much!

    Caloriecount.com seems like another decent one that has more "restaurant" and prepared food data. I cook almost all my food, so fitday works fine for me.

    You're on very low calories for this regime. I am on recomp level 2800 and 2400 on nwd's..and losing quite a bit of fat.. could be our difference in weight too.

    Oh, that's not for me, I was just trying to keep his diet within his specified range of 2K calories.

    My diet is a lot higher! I'm generally shooting for 3K-4k cal on workout days, depending on muscle group and if I add cardio or not. I'm trying to lean bulk. Bulk is working, staying relatively lean, but still putting on some fat (noticeable from where I was at contest weight 2 weeks ago). I've gone from 176.2lbs at weigh in to 189lbs last night. A lot of water and glycogen, but skin is getting a little looser around the tummy...

    Yesterday (off day, 2 cardio sessions) I was at 3,600 calories! A bit too high... but I was just too hungry to help myself! ARGH, food! Why does it have to taste so good! I wanted to be 20% below, but I couldn't do it being home surrounded by goodness like homemade blueberry pancakes!

    Yowzas!!!! Now thats a meal!

    I am going to be doing a static diet on my NWD of about 1800 cals. I have it set up and will expound upon it a little more in my log. But basically using a set diet plan those days so I don't have to think about what I am eating or what I need to do to get my nutrients in. I just need to follow the plan unless I have a major desire to deviate from it for some reason.

    That is the second time I have seen 16 oz curried flounder now you have to shaire the recipe. I like curry on stuff but have NO CURRY RECIPES!!! Horrible huh, my wife doesn't like the Indian foods, so the curry's and gingers and what not don't make it to my table unfortunately... I tend to order out for them when I get to eat them...

    lol@my pwo meal today.....

    10oz of pulled buffalo chicken breast served on one package (four buns) of kings hawaiian snacker rolls toasted, one bowl of protein pudding (50g casein) with walden farms marshmallow fluff, and smuckers sugar free choco and caramel syrup. Plus a bowl of mixed berries with a few tbsp of sugar free cool whip.

    This meal was every bit of 2000 kcal haha

    This is not typical of me, but It will serve as my weekly cheat meal I missed this weekend.

    I dosed my usual 200mcg ghrp 6 + 100mcg mod grf and I took three need2slin. I literally had to force my self to stop eating. Unreal hunger.

    Buffalo Pulled Chicken by Bubba78

    Ingredients

    4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1 (17.5 fluid ounce) bottle buffalo wing sauce, divided
    1/2 (1 ounce) package dry ranch salad dressing mix
    2 tablespoons butter
    6 hoagie rolls, split lengthwise

    Directions

    Place the chicken breasts into a slow cooker, and pour in 3/4 of the wing sauce and the ranch dressing mix. Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 7 hours.
    Once the chicken has cooked, add the butter, and shred the meat finely with two forks. Pile the meat onto the hoagie rolls, and splash with the remaining buffalo wing sauce to serve.



    I made this for the first time and I'm hooked. I ate it with mashed cauliflower yesterday and then again today with hawaiian rolls pwo.

    I'm a big fan of chicken wings, and this is a guilt free way to get my fix. I used Franks Red Hot Wing sauce and smart balance butter.
