Intermit Fasting

hey guys was just windering if you were to do the intermit fasting protocol but say you trained in the evening around 5 or 6 oclock. how would you go by doing it because all the information i read has been for people that train around 12 pm noon

You must rearrange your whole life to workout at noon, otherwise it can’t be done

Martin Berkhn’s reccomendation:

[quote]Two pre-workout meals

This is the usual protocol for people with normal working hours.

Sample setup

12-1 PM or around lunch/noon: Meal one. Approximately 20-25% of daily total calorie intake.
4-5 PM: Pre-workout meal. Roughly equal to the first meal.
8-9 PM: Post-workout meal (largest meal).[/quote]

Hope this helps.

thanks alot man but isnt the pint of intermit fasting to train wtih bcaas only?

I work out in the evening as well and just eat everything post workout, been following the Hodge Twins on IF lol.

I also workout in the evenings (6 or 7ish) & also just eat after.

The whole point is not to train fasted. It’s a protocol you can follow to accommodate the fasting. As for the evening workouts, you could move your fasting window, or just follow the above alteration for evening training.

it’s true.

hmmm wel c just somthing was thinking about not gone do it now tho

If Mark Berkham, the man who has made IF essentially what it is today, has a protocol for people with normal working days, I’d be willing to give it a try.

The idea behind Lean Gains is that you are supposed to spend your fasting hours making hundreds of internet memes of yourself.

Look into Berardi’s IF ebook. He gives a protocol for normal people who work 8-5ish and train after work.

Google Berardi intermittent fasting ebook.
