Anybody here tried leangains? Does it really help for recomp or is it just an easier way to maintain a calorie deficit? I am thinking about trying it during a cut. I have no problem fasting until around 1pm and getting my calories in the following 8 hours. But I want to know if there benefits other than just not going to bed hungry. Are Martin's claims of a lean recomp true based on your experience?

True, I love LG. I've been using this protocol for nearly a year with fantastic results!Originally Posted by hvactech

its the only diet i havent tried, i will be though while logging ostra rx....ive came across a few who reported muscle loss but i would almost cough it up to poor macro breakdown

Absolutely. It's important to have calories and macros dialed in. It takes a little time and experimentation to get the protocol working for each individual. We are all different and have different caloric needs. Once one finds those numbers the results are next to none!Originally Posted by hvactech

It works marvels...but you gotta commit and look into a solid whole body workout for 3 to 4 times a week. A nice dedication for cardio on rest days and also , if you are looking for a cut I suggest you read this
And follow the +10%/-35% Protocol, it works wonders in a fast cut , and then , once lean , try the standard recomp for +20%/-20%.

Sorry dont mean to thread jack but i have a similar question. I checked this link out great read btw, and for cutting it puts me at 2145 t days and 1267 r days however he talked about doubling your fat intake on r days for more food options but in the cutt phase i would be 200g prot. 30g fat and 270 g carbs on wod. But if i doubled my fat and kept protein at 200 g as it suggests i would be over my 1267 calories for my rest days and thats wit 0 carbs. Can protein be lowered on r days to up fat intake and allow some carbs?
