  1. Ate my fist full of food after 2 days of fasting, now questioning what I'm doing.

    Yep, I'm wondering too. This is my "normal" pace, it will slow down in a few days. By the way, I count rest pause sets too.

    ooooh.. One meal 2000cal and that too late in the night. Should do animal test on this experiment first

    I'm pretty confident this hairy ape will survive, LOL! My guess is, workout intensity and volume will suffer -and the toilet will get clogged due to fire- extinguisher-sized dumps, caused by constipation.

    Its a combination of intermittent fasting and complete fasting.
    I call it:

    NTNM - "No train-no meal."TM

    -One meal on training days, no meal on off days.
    -Only time a meal is allowed is after training.
    -Meal has to stay under 2000 kcal.
    -Meal has to be consumed in a 2 hour window after training.
    -Macross: 65%Prot/20%Fat/15%Carbs
    -Off days = water/ black coffee only.

    Stay tuned for before/after pics!

    Derailing this thread is encouraged!
    Sounds interesting but not going to work for me, train 6/7 days a week

    Good Luck

    Just reverse it. Now you are only allowed to eat on off days.

    My cycle:
    -250mg test-e/w
    -20mg Ostarine/day
    That's it.

    Today's workout:

    60-70 sets, mostly machines, a bit of everything.
    Add in some topical Formestane and you're set! Help with estro from test and can be used for a sort of spot reduction sort of. I love it for lower abdominal fat myself.

    Cruise dose of Test and some Ostarine has to do the trick. No Creatine, Whey -or BCAA's. Diet and training is key, lets focus on that and save money!
    Apparently BCAAs are not good for dieting from my recent research. So are you saving money but possibly saving yourself from undesirable results.

  15. I don't know how everyone on this forum fasts or intermittent fasts without being in ketosis! I messed up ketosis this past week by overeating protein and peanut butter, and trying to fast just for my normal 18 hours was horrible. I was miserable. But if you can do it, more power to you!
    After vacation to Florida starting tomorrow, I'll be implementing keto with extended fasts similar to what your doing, but just a little different.

  16. Subd! How many days a week do u train?

    Sometimes I hesitate to add people, due to the rambling, off subject nature of some of our threads. I will add you both in the next time "The List" gets used.

    I figured if I impose a fixed rule to the diet, its easier to follow it -and if I am REALLY hungry, I have to go to the gym first, no matter what.
    Reminds me of a stone age hunter. You hunt - you eat, you rest - you fast.
    Also, you don't need to weight your food -or count every atom in it. Even if the meal is huge, you should lose weight anyway.

    Nope. This time I keep it simple. I always took too much crap -and when I finally felt ill, I didn't know what caused it. By the way, until Formestane arrives at my home in bananaland, the diet is over. At 250mg test/w I don't expect much estro sides, have adex and exem on hand, one never knows.

    Oh, did not know that. I cut BCAA's and Whey out, because they have flavors -or if they don't (Bulk bags) I mixed them with some fruit juice, this stimulates my appetite.

    You at 6'0"/175lbs have nothing to worry anyway With 5'8"/230lbs I'm too short for my weight, LOL

  25. Uhm we are going to need some more derailing here. Slackers.
