I'm interested in starting Martin Berkham's program. My primary goal is fat loss. I've looked through his site, and I understand the basics. But I'm having a hard time nailing down some of the specifics (it seems that he is holding back the specifics until his book comes out... but the date keeps getting pushed back...).
Here are my questions:
If I'm using IF for fat loss, should I still count calories to make sure I'm creating a calorie deficit? I know I should eat more on workout days, and less on rest days - but I'd like some details on how much more and how much less. Can I just use something like Lyle MacDonalds calorie recommendations and apply them to IF?
Also, about carbohydrates, I know he recommends a fewer carbs on rest days, and carbing up a couple times a week after workouts - but again, how many carbs on rest days does he recommend for fat loss? Is it just meat and green vegggies on rest days (like under 20 grams of carbs), or is it more moderate amount on rest days, like under 100 grams?
If anyone has any ideas about the specifics of the Leangains approach for fat loss, I be very grateful. Thanks!
