I posted this is another thread but got no responses so I’ll post it here though I hate starting new threads.
I’ve gained a ton of weight lately, and lets just say most of it is around my gut (as is typical of men).
Like many of you, when I eat, I like to EAT. Thats the way we are and thats why many people today are going through the IF phase successfully.
There are many different protocols out there, many of which require loads of supps to be taken during the fasting period to help preserve muscle and what not. Long story short, I’ve been spending a lot of money lately on school, bills and helping my parents out with bills since they are in a financial rut. Im running low on money currently.
I was thinking of doing a “pulse feast” type of diet, much like the one on this site, but pulsing with leucine instead of protein powder or BCAA’s. I’m shooting for 3 pulses of 5g during the day, with a big low carb meal at night. I would have a nice refeed once a week.
Anybody have thoughts on this? I’d greatly appreciate it.
