    You probably also aren't overreacting to day to day fluctuations like the OP is though. Nothing wrong with him weighing his self every day as long as he doesn't flip out about the day to day changes. It seems as if he doesn't realize how much carbs, water intake status, muscle mass etc go into your scale weight. Hence the suggestion for once a week. He's caught up in the scale weight and shouldn't be.

    Honestly it wasn't meant as a diss, that is a COMMON occurrence. But 1 your scale weight might change up to 5 lbs more or less depending on those things (and more). And 2, do you want to weigh less or look better? Recomping, or adding muscle mass while losing fat is going to make everyone LOOK better (which is what everyone wants), but it might not make the scale weight change that much (muscle weighs more than fat). If people say you're slimming down then you probably are. We don't see the day to day changes in the mirror because we don't recognize it.

    Look at the difference between the same woman in this first link. Both 155 lbs, same woman, but one looks drastically better. Why? Because she lost fat and gained muscle...which didn't radically change her scale number, but did radically change what she looked like.

    Geoforce made a good statement; although the scales and measurement are objective and difinitive means to show statistical changes in weight, shape, or composition they are not the end all methodology to determining asthetics. Sculpting a physique is as much an art form as it is a science. Why I mention that is because there's an important subjective element to defining human form. What one person looks like at 160lbs or 11% body fat can vary greatly to the next person. Getting back on track, I often hear people freak out when trying lose body fat worry that they gained weight but never considered that the weight may be increase in muscle mass which is 3x as dense. In some ways, the IDEAL shift would be to lose boy fat, increase muscle mass while not changing weight or gaining. Theoretically this is possible on an IF diet (or any diet) but it takes time to dial in and find out what and how much you need to eat. End rant.

  13. well went for a night out. ate later than usual (very late, like 2 hrs) and a lot of protein, very little carbs and moderate fat + small alcohol (less than half a litre). loads of water (around 2 lts). Meat was very salty.
    today I am like +2kg. Which I know it is not possible as I have not ingested 14000 kcal. I know I should have skipped weight today (the weighing day, Geoforce/OrganicShadow, is Thursday :P) but I just couldn't resist

    so, fast today should end at 16. let's see if I can do it.

  14. Consider sodium causes water retention under similar physics to what was mentioned about glycogen and water storage for additional weight. Just mentioning because you said it was salty. Plus if the food is still sitting in your stomach (which is probably the case) it sits a little heavier until you flush out whatever excrement you may carry from it. Yeah, shouldn't have weighed yourself. So take it with a grain of salt.

    ? Of course you can. IF is just a way to approach meals. If you aren't training with weights right now you really need to be.

    You could easily start. You can do whatever you want training wise with IF. Nothing about IF makes it to where you can't train a certain way. You can train for size, train for strength, train for fat loss, whatever. Hell some people have BULKED on IF in the hopes they will put on less fat.

    ALL IF is is a plan to eat in a certain window to hopefully get the benefits of fasting. How much and what you eat, plus how you train has nothing to do with IF.

  22. weighing day, sigh, almost 1 kg more. yesterday was training day however, and I did eat quite a lot in the post-workout meal (evening), adding some carbs & smoked salmon. I did keep under 800 calories for the 2 other meals of the day. opinions?

    Did you hit your macro goals when you did this? Underrating on IF is not going to work...

    At 270 pounds my sweets spot is between 2300 and 3k calories (non weight training / weight training)...


    this is a great tool for getting your numbers together...
    http://www.1percentedge.com/ifcalc/

    and don't weigh yourself every day if its going to bring negative energy. If you set your diet up using that calcuator, follow it with clean foods and train hard you will either lose weight or recomp. And both are awesome....

    I dropped 5 pounds from 11 pm to 7am in pure water last night.... Carbs and salts play havoc with your weight, but every Friday i log my weight and every friday it goes down...
