i've been doing a fast 2 x per wk. so i eat only 5 days a week.
i find it extremely difficult to endure the hunger in the evening after being fasted for more than 20 hrs. i get cranky with brain fog and tired.
the day after fasting i am not that hungry at first and my first meal must be small to start.
then my hunger builds through the day until i can't stop eating a ton. yesterday i ate an entire large bag of potato chips in 1/2 hr.
The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens.

have to give an update.
intermittent fasting works!
i've been running 2 - 36hr fasts per week for the past month and i have lost around 6lbs.
my diet on the non fasting days is not strict at all.
i eat out and enjoy the same foods i normally do and around the same portions i normally eat (maybe a little more ).
my strength has stayed the same.
before starting this i was fairly lean but could only see an outline of my abs when i flexed.
now, my appearance in the mirror is noticeably changed, i have apparent abs unflexed and getting nice definition on my arms and shoulders.
even thought i'm smaller, i look like a beast in the gym with some new veins popping.
leg muscles still don't have any stirations yet.
i will say that fasting has gotten a lot easier each week, but i still have a difficult time getting past the dinner hours.
btw i'm downing yohimbine, green tea, and caffine caps on fasting days only.
i found it helps kill my appetite a little and seems to be helping free the fat.
Androfactory rep and fanboy.
Discount code "brice" for a major 15% off kinda deal. Dont tell nobody
i had read that yohombine + insulin cancels the effect, so not to waste them with food.
that is why i've only been taking them on fasting days.
i'm taking 10mg of yohimbine 3 x per day on my fast days due to the short half life.
it seems to kill my hunger for a few hrs.
Just started IF yesterday. I tried last week but I couldn't do it. So far, so good. My eating window is usually 4pm-10pm. Might go with 2pm-10pm on most days since I get off at 1:30pm. Looking forward to the fat loss.
Intermittent fasting has saved me.
I've been doing it now over 2 years
At first unintentional now intentional.
I have a big appetite and I can cook everything fresh. So it's hot. No microwaves. I feel overall better and I get lean like crazy. Every so often ill add in a 24-30 hour fast and kill2000 calories to break my fast and call it a day just as a kickstart into a good week after a bad eating day.
I don't put on noticeable fat at all. But then again I got too notch supplementation and clean diet the other 99% of the time on my side
