That may seem like I am on monster food but truly I am not... it was not even a 100grams of protein I guess or maybe it was... The meat I got today was *GOOD LUCK* usually what I get is veggies or any other boring thing.
U know you SHOULD eat whatever's available, even junk food if it's available, cause one has to proveide his/her body with the nutrition and the energy to take em through the day... Eat whatever's available... no matter what it is, peas, rice, veggies, meat, bread or jam or peanut butter, pickles, any fastfood, eggs, anything at all! just eat.
what are your current stats? weight height bf% what are you doing/want to do right now gaining or losing?

i do thin that fasting in Ramadan , will help mainly people who have problems , in losing weight . and what i like about fasting is that u r Abs get revealed quickly in comparison to tha past days , because i do not need to train them 3 to 4 times a week as i used to do , but instead i do that only 2 times a week which is enough for me . gud luck bro

[QUOTE="Bolanrox"]I'm following along, I am trying to fast myself this month as well, not for religious reasons, just personal here.[/QUOTE

Yesterday I had a lil low food for breaking the fast thou, but it was ok.
In the gym I trained Chest.
Dumbbell flat bench presses: 30 or 35kg dumbbell for 12 reps.
Dumbbell flat bench flyes: 10kg dumbbell for 17 reps.
Incline wide grip bench: 40kg for 12 reps. Really could go like 60 kg for 10. Soreness has gone and I think I CAN try lifting a bit heavy.
Decline bench press: 50kg for 12 reps. (over here again felt like I could go up with the weights)
I am certain that I will take the weights up from now on...
After the gym had like 200-300 gram of chicken along with 2 glasses of milk.
and at 1am I was feeling a bit hungry, had a hamburger and some chocolate cookies :P
The air conditioner is messed up! needs to b fixed!

I'm trying "intermittent fasting" at the moment... It's great... I have gain strength, but lost a little size, fat included... Not a problem though cos I'm not planning on bulking anytime soon... Any tips?

I'm fasting as well and while it is difficult to only eat within a 6 hour window, I cant argue with the results. My strength isn't gone as long as I lift, but I've lost a decent bit of fat.
Fasting for 16-20 hours has been shown to increase HGH levels in a man by nearly 2000%. Compound that with HIIT exercises and/or lifting and your body should be surging with anabolic hormones.

I watch them too... That's what got me into it because I already workout on an empty stomach to burn fat...Originally Posted by soopamyko
They are definitely gettin all kinds of gains from it...
08-01-2012, 02:21 PM
My strength is up, that's for sure... I need to eat I think quite a bit more... Need more carbs in my diet... I mainly do HIIT... Tabata mainly...Originally Posted by DirtyPlymouth

Eh bro wanna know how it's working for u. But here is some advice. Fast your days in a row because if u eat good then it's easier to fast in a row these to fast 1 day eat the second and fast the 3rd because your body has to adjust and it's harder. Just some advice I learned over the years lolOriginally Posted by BLaQz
