I do it 2-6 times a day for fun. Pre and post poop.Originally Posted by EasyEJL
Habit. Cant help it.
Weighing everyday can be beneficial and discouraging from my experience. Weigh everyday but only count one weigh in on a specific day. Just easier for people who care about numbers not the mirror.

I think too that once you've been doing that long enough you get used to the fact that goddamn sunspots or listening to the wrong music can cause a 3lb variation day to day. Well some sort of unknown unable to determine factor anyhowOriginally Posted by EBF Inc

On more serious note then poop. Does creatine break the fast? As i guess it would be better absorbed on a empty stomach.

This? Was already answered for u on another thread. No creatine does not break the fast as long as ur not using something with calories what type of creatine?Originally Posted by inda11

LTL your looking good bro...
Lots of funny comments on the scale and post dump weigh ins. I use a scale that measures weight, bf%, and body water%. I find using three metrics better than one. Ive learned to set monthly goals and use the scale more or less as a way to make sure I'm on the right track. It can be discouraging but also very motivating. Jumping on the scale is like getting paid on Friday. You get some return on your hard work.
I've started LG/IF and I'm loving it. So much flexibility. Made a post in the LG/IF thread and don't want to get repetitive. But when it comes to body science it just makes sense and feel like an idiot for never considering it before.
I'm in a recomp stage and it's working wonders and allowing me to have more control over my diet. I've never had a problem gaining weight or losing weight. The challenge for me has always been during a bulking phase. Nailing the right macros/calories to see the muscle and strength gains I want while not putting on body fat is difficult. I usually get to the strength/weight I want then taper. It's a fun challenge but would love to just find that perfect number for myself.
I'm in a total recomp stage right now, and I will probably put up a log at some point. But lean gains/IF is awesome. It allows me not to feel like I have cheat days if I have to go away for a weekend to a wedding or event. I just plan my fasting around the meals I know aren't going to be as clean as I would want.
The biggest challenge in a diet is always social functions. And instead of encouraging, most people try to get you to eat or drink and say live a little. So if I know I have dinner at 5, and it's going to be something like prime rib, I might not open my fasting window at 12. I'll fast till 5 knowing I'll hit my calories then and people won't give me **** for eating healthy. It's worked so far.
Although, when I am eating really healthy I feel horrible if i eat dirty food. My body just rejects it. Seems to be magnified on IF. MIght have to do with the insulin and glycogen levels from the fasting period. It's like a shock to my system. I feel like I ate a bag of cement and took 20 sleeping pills if I eat a large dirty meal.

Enjoyed reading this thread. I also started IF and am doing the 16/8 protocol. I train fasted in the morning. I take a some bcaa pre-wo, bcaa during wo, and bcaa post. Training starts around 7 or 8 am. I'm usually in the gym for 60-70 min. I dont break my fast till after 12. So far, energy levels are good. The only drawback for me is that I train with a lot of volume and am unable to lift weights that I used to. I am on a push/pull/leg routine. I'll give it another 2 weeks and see how my body adjusts. Anyways, it been about a 1.5 weeks since I've been on IF.
I'm on a recomp. My calories on training days is around 2400, and 1600 on rest days. Anyone have any suggestions or opinions on my routine?

You can adapt any training to suit needs. There is no BEST training but in saying that, stick with big compound lifts for best ROIOriginally Posted by ballerj63
