Lean Gains Help
I have been reading through the threads on lean gains here at AM and looked at the LeanGains website and am very interested in giving this diet a try. However, I am not sure if it is right for me and was hoping some of the more experienced people here could help me out.
I have only been working out for about 2 years. The first year and a half I was doing bodypart splits and didnt really get the strength base i was looking for until about 8 months ago when I started Ripptoes Starting Strength. Now I am much stronger but I still dont feel like I have near as much of a muscle/strength base as I should before i start cutting. (basically I am worried about losing what little I have) Unfortunately, I am around 20% bf though and really want to get rid of this chub!
Would it be a good idea for someone who is still a beginner to try this diet, or should I just keep focusing on building a solid base and worry about cutting a little further down the road?
Your thoughts and opinions are appreciated!

This diet is one that can be used for all goals. Whether you're looking to bulk, cut or maintain, it can be utilized. It's more of a lifestyle choice.
I've done it for a month and really enjoyed it. I unfortunately didn't get the benefits out of it because of my jacked up thyroid, but in the sense of eating all my meals in an 8 hour window, I love it. The first couple days take some getting used to as far as being hungry during the other hours, but it subsides pretty quickly.
I say go for it and see how it works for you.
And as for bulking or cutting, etc., it's just all about the calories and macros you put into it

Have you figured out which one of the 4 methods fits your personal schedule that would be the first step in getting started. Then it just a matter of knowing your calories and what to eat and when.

As long as you have your calories and training set up to meet what your goal is (cut or recomp I assume) then the lean gains diet would be great to give a try. I've had great success with it through a cut, and have just recently switched to more of a recomp.
Give us a little info on what your training schedule and diet is like, as well as your stats if you want some more input bro
