Just like the title states. Im curious to hear opinions on the matter. Many famous people are chiming in, Joe Rogan being the biggest speaker on the intermittent fast and keto in my list of people I respect. Im curious what everyone else thinks.
I have a friend all natty doing the fast and keto now hes a week in and his habits are changing for sure. He’s waking up less hungry, eating the right numbers for his daily intake and indeed has lost maybe two pounds of fat. His weights are maintaining and improving in some ways. Now, he did have a long off season and slack routine prior, and now he’s trying to play catch up with me as a gym partner doing my workouts. So big changes are expected without the fast/diet path hes decided. But today we got on the topic of juicing with the fast.
I believe the body won’t react correctly and will demand to much for an eight hour window to provide. And i mentioned to him he is sleeping 8-10 hours(or trying to) and many people believe 6-8 max is needed. I couldn’t imagine a cycle with a fasting and being awake the hours I generally spend awake. Especially on a harder drug like tren where sleep is effected greatly for me.
His belief is that alot of guys who are using the diet and fasting, are on juice on youtube (not even selling products) and they’re adjusted to it and the AAS fully and its working great.
We both agree a vast majority of the youtube people from weight training to calisthenics are lying about cycling and alot of these people are talking about this fast/keto stuff like its the holy grail… are they compensating their use of steroids into the quality of the current trend in the industry or do you think they may actually being doing these diets and sleep cycles and fasts successfully while cycling? Or potentially all natty and looking the way they do? (Past cycles considered gains kepts? Natty presently not gaining? Or are they growing still and burning fat? Dex?) So many factors.
