Ok so my diets going great I'm now around 177 I was 190 but I do a lot of researching and come to find a very intresting subject on Intermittent fasting.
I normaly eat 4 meals a day I did put it to 5 but being a student I found it hard to keep up with that cost for extra meat pluse I hate eating every few hours I'm you g I like to stay out and chill but bodybuilding is Important to me so I plan a head, come to find that eating every 3 hours ain't the case In fact it's a Opinionated that fasting and eating every 3 hours sums up to the same thing as long as you meet your cals at the end of the day so I thought I'd make a post on this to see how many of you guys are doing this and there's a few stages of this type of dieting, I'm not 100 percent sure on how it works anyone got any ideas? Thanks

Yes eat for 8 fast for 16. Eat for 5 is ok but you might get extra hungry. On time, it is up to your preference. I liked to eat around 1-9pm that way go to bed full and get nice and hungry for a big lunch or post workout. HTH

I did intermittent fasting for about a year. There's a lot of benefits and you don't have to be super strict about the timing. Just make sure that you have the 16+ hour fast and you can break your meals up into as many as you like within the 8 hour period left. As a college student it works well because you can eat as much as you want in the dining halls. If you have a big appetite make sure you watch your calories because I still found that I could eat a days worth of calories easily in 2 or 3 hours.
Also the best time to break your fast in post workout.You should be consuming most of your calories ideally a few hours before you go to sleep. If you want my research I could send it your way but it might take a while to dig it up.

Don't take protein but do take BCAAs pre-workout. I liked to have one SMALL snack an hour to two pre-workout. The fructose from an apple will just enter glycolysis right away (when fasted) and yield some energy for the workout. I like to think about it like this: the fasting period is when your going to be burning the fat and you want to be active during this time. Eating right after a fasted workout SIGNIFICANTLY improves glycogen synthesis and you want this for the next period of fasting.
The feasting stage is when all repair happens and you want to use that period as efficiently as possible. Go to bed with enough nutrients and use the hormone patterns during sleep to really accelerate growth. There are certain hormones like IGF-1 and GH that tend be secreted at night as shown by some studies (I don't have these ones available) these will work very well when your body has enough nutrients for repair.
So a schedule would be:
Wake up at like 8 am, at 3 pm have an apple, 4 pm workout, 6 pm start feasting, go to bed around 1030 pm. Don't forget the law of calories in vs calories out still applies. Intermittent fasting really affects the bodies ability to recomp in MY experience.

You can schedule it however you want. There is flexibility in the style of eating. Pick what works for you.

You have to eat every 2 hrs once you get up in the morning. Schedule your meal every 2hrs. Small meals! That's bodybuilding does!
