This is the same guy who started a thread 12 reasons why low carb diets suck or something spouting off tons of inaccurate opinions. He is some sort of dietary bigot. If not his diet it can't possibly work.
Seems you just hate anything that isn't what you are doing. Calling everyone using an intermittent fasting protocol a moron is unnecessary and intentionally inflammatory. Same as your dig at low carb diets. Seems like any time someone doesn't share your diet plan you take it as a personal affront and attack to what you do. Then you attack that group or way of dieting. Yeah body building is work. Eating does not have to be. You do it your way and enjoy it. Just have a little more class and leave people doing something differently than you with OBVIOUS success alone. Calling everyone morons when half of what you say has no backing and none of it is based off of science is ironic to say the least.
Didn't read any further than post 19, no need to. lol. Post #2 and #14 did all the debating anyone needs to. Anyone following an IF type diet should simply unsubscribe from the thread. He is not looking for debate. He is baiting you all into this argument and enjoying the frenzy that follows. Unsubbed...

^^^ I rest my case. He may not be jacked like Ronnie Coleman but IMO 9/10 guys would rather look like that than someone on the Olympia stage.
If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).
I know for a fact that when i started eating breakfast in the morning i never use to and didn't really clean up my diet alot i started losing weight.
My parents don't eat until 2pm or so then around 6pm no breakfast or snacks and they are overweight.
Im eating about 6x a day and losing fat.Its all about cals and types of food PERIOD!If you get off on starving yourself good for you.Now if you's don't mind think i'll eat again!!
No offense, but didn't you make an identical thread to this one about high fat diets only to recant your statement after having tried it out?
From what it appears, this does seem to be a really great diet for the average, natural bb to follow for fat loss or lean bulking. I will say though that the diet is ass for AAS users since your MPS is consistently high due to the high levels of anabolics, so it is definitely suboptimal to only feed for 8 hours on AAS as, guess what, you only grow for those 8 hours with a little residual growth thereafter from the very minimal protein that's still digesting.
Personally, I don't do any AAS, but I can't stand this diet because it makes my stomach feel very stuffed and distended, so I stick with my 5-6 meals/day.
and anyone can eat more calories than they burn, whether they eat 2 meals a day or 8, and whether its in 4 hours or 16
I'd also like to add, my results came from my fat depletion, moderate to high carb approach. My chest lags though, I def need more chest and arms. I need to bring the arms up about 1-2" there. Abs ok, but would like smaller waistline, I think it was like 34" there.
As for the comments about me being someone who thinks I need 50 grams of protein exactly every 2 hrs, nope. I think protien intake way overrated and you can get by on less than 1 gram/lb of bodyweight as carbs are protein sparing. Guys, I apologize for calling you morons. But we are all very physically active, to go 16 hrs without food is just stupid IMO. The one thing I've noticed many of your responses have in common is "I still eat pizza, fried chicken, and ice cream" This does not sound like someone working hard towards their goals, it sounds like the typical diet some lazy fatass would do to try and get fast results. Yes, I do bring my cooler with me a lot of the time, and I'd like to think the results show for it. I didnt post my photo because I think I'm the **** or anything special, I have a long way to go still. But please understand that being physically impressive is all relative. For the guys getting results doing what they are doing , great!! But if you ever get to the point where you question why the hell your stuffing thousands of calories in an 8 hr window and your bloated as hell, shortly after starving urself all day and feeling like garbage during that time frame, well maybe you'll finally realize how stupid, irrational, and mind boggling your new scientific approach really is.
You have a very impressive physique, but there is no saying you could not have gotten into that condition, or built/maintained that, implementing these principles.
I must admit a year ago I might have had similar views, albeit I would have stated them in a more tactful manner. However after trying it myself, as I am always willing to experiment, and try new things I can say the results are surprising. I have dieted down, every which way, worked with some of the top nutritionists/prep guys, and I can say I am in my best shape now, and holding onto mass/strength as good as ever, and actually am stronger then ever WHILE dieting.
Bottom line is there are MANY ways from point A-B. Aceto, Palumbo, Starnes, Skip, etc all get people peeled, and have VERY different approaches. I remember when some of their methods were looked at as "outlandish" and now they seem more common place.
It is all a matter of perspective. Just because you believe it is stupid, or not the best way, doesn't make it so. Like I said, a year ago, I would have probably said the same.
IF you have an opinion on it, fine. But approach it with a little respect. This whole "I am big, so I know best" or "I am bigger then you which means I know more" attitude is weak my man.
One thing I have learned in this game is to be a little open minded. There are MANY things I try for myself, for no other reason then to experiment. If for nothing else, I know the ins-and outs of this diet, and can make it work, and work well for someone else that it may fit the bill for.
Well, at least we can agree on the scientifically proven fact that anyone saying you need to get 2g of protein per pound to grow is a moron :-)
In regards to what Imprezivr6 said, in long conversations with Hugo Rivera (who has a really spectacular physique) one of the things I really learned to respect in him was his openness to try things. He did plenty of stupid dietary attempts, and regardless of what he thought or what results he got short term, he stuck with them for the 4,6,8 weeks he had planned, to get a more objective look at how it affected his physique and training. The best story easyejl when he tried doing an as close to zero fat intake as possible. By the end of the second week he started having some skin issues. By the end of the third he easyejl seeing hair shedding. By the end of the fourth, his fingernails were getting brittle and cracking. But he meticulously followed the plan, and logged every meal precisely, bodyweight, bodyfat, etc.
Aside from the fact that I like IF because i get better results than typical diets + its foolproof. I don't count have to go through trial and error figuring out optimal amounts of calories to slowly lose fat and maintain muscle - THAT IS SLOWW. its very simple : eat ALOT one day, eat almost nothing the next day. i lose fat one day, and gain muscle on the other day. I don't eat icecream or go too crazy on the cals, but it's really hard to mess the diet up.
Your argument that 6 meals a day is better is the equivalent of saying '' yall are lazy cause you drive your car to work. I WALK cause THAT takes discipline.
For me, the action IS the juice.
It works. It still takes discipline but it also adds a sense of leniency in dieting food selection. You still needs attention to macro's for optimal results, it's not a free-for-all pig out but I have come to love how this diet is effective and dynamic. I have lost NO strength and have actually hit a couple PR's on this diet in the last few months. My only suggestion I would have is to put it to the test. Read up on the science behind it and then try it for yourself.

As far as "starving", the first couple days are tough but ghrelin levels decrease after the initial first day or two and things start getting a bit easier. Stims can help also, but the biggest motivator will be the result you see.
