I don't know if I could not eat until the afternoon every day. Every thing I've read has told me breakfast should be one of your biggest meals. Is there really a difference between me getting 3200 cals throughout the day or at specific times?
210 & 15%. Want to get to 230 and under 20% eventually. I just don't want to be an asshole every morning at work waiting to eat unless it gets me mad gains. Plus the site looks like one giant ad. I guess I'm not sold on this fasting shit.
Ideally, 10% and shredded like a julian salad @ 230 would be great. But I don't need to shed fat right now and just want to gain to 230 and not bulk to to 275 and spend a lot of time cutting 45lbs of fat. Plus I hate looking like a fatass.
this type diet works great for natty guys, and I've seen guys on test/gh really transform themselves doing it. Also he suggests taking BCAA's, just scrape that and take plain ol leucine. There is competition for amino uptake and you want the most important one (leucine) to get absorbed.
You'll get used to not eating until the afternoon. However, I have found that I become satiated much more easily if I wait until the afternoon to eat. If I eat breakfast, it's much easier to stay hungry throughout the day and of course there is more time to fit calories in.
I do a modified version of it I guess.
I workotu in the AM, I eat my feast meal after I workout liek you normally would and my window starts then, then it closes at 5pm and I don't eat again until post workout.
I have gotten amazing results while lifting and doing IF. I just can't follow his model because of work/personal life schedules, so I stick to mine. Maybe somebody can chime in with nutrient timing information and the value of it in the IF scenario VS eating early but in the same pattern.
i think as long as you get your calories within the 8 hour period you are ok. doesn't matter if you eat all your calories within the first hour, within 4 hours, 5 or 8... the 8 hour window closes exactly 8 hours after the first meal...
I don't follow his "windows"
I wake @ 6am
hit gym @ 7:30
Have my shake after gym(9AM)
maybe grab a bar for mid day snack
Have "feast meal" in afternoon(around 3) but after my 8 hour window from taking the shake...I stop.
seeing amazing results. just had to get used to the timing was all.
