Intermittent Fasting?


#1

Just heard of it from TMW on youtube about a week ago, is it a good way to diet. Is it a good way to bulk and stay as lean as possible at the same time ?


#2

as before recently, google "John Berardi IF e-book"


#3

Yer Im also interested in how this works(I dont do e-books).

Although I dont know if I could do it... I cant go without food for more than a 2-3 hours.

Berardi's ebook is free, and very informative.

WTF is with the Birds avi??


#7

What does "I don't do ebooks" mean anyway? The thing reads like a tabbed webpage anyway. Do you "do" websites?


#8

OP,

Do you "not do" search engines?

@bnkNando:
Definitely good for getting lean and maintaining leanness. Not yet sure about muscle gain but I think so.

@theBird:
Download the e-book, print it out, bind it if you want. That way you get an actual book (as opposed to an e-book).

I dropped from 188 to 175 in a short amount of time (don't remember exactly how many weeks or days) then I restarted it a few weeks ago and now i'm at 171 I did this to get to 10% BF without being too strict on my foods. Like you, I also had trouble going without food for more than 3 hours but I realised that it is not that hard to do I can go 16 to 18 hours without food and it doesn't bother me at all. You should give it a test drive for at least 8-12 weeks and see how it works for you. Also, I would recommend to check Martin's blog. (Sorry for my english)

Um... what are you doing with your dog? matter of fact forget about it.


#12

Yeah, that's the winner for silliest thing I've heard in months.

Bird - granted, you will need an e-reader (ie. Kindle, Ipad, Mac, PC, the exact one with which you're viewing this page, etc) to view e-books.

But it's pretty worthwhile investment (as you no doubt know by now).

I got Kindle on my phone and have read 15-20 books in that manner. Extremely convenient .


#14

how many threads are going to be started pertaining to IF'ing... haysoos crisco


#15

Calories in...calories out. So yes it works. Anything works as long as at the end of the day your macro nutrient profile matches up with your goals.


#16

haha, I came on here to ask exactly the same question. I was wondering if changing the feeding hour from 8-10 or something would help with being able to eat enough calories? have people done it?


#17

How do you have trouble eating enough calories? Never understood this.


#18

Yup, human body is simple as that, hormones have no bearing on the matter.

Snackwell's for me


#19

You're probably a chicken and rice slave as well


#20

eating enough throughout a day isnt that big a deal, eating enough in a tiny little window MAY be.
