Thanks for the response.
I'm going to give it a go. I've also grown over my old dieting method of preparing soo many meals and always worrying about my carbs, eating times etc..
So my plan (starting tomorrow) is to follow the Two pre-workout meals protocol:
So my eating window will be 12am until 8pm.
Train at 5 or 5:30pm (should I have a small whey protein shake before gym?)
- Then I will have my normal post workout whey protein and bananas
*Followed by my remaining meal spread out until my eating window closes at 8pm ( (55%) 1600 calories including the immediate whey/banana after gym)
= 3000 total calories, majority consumed after gym, high protein (1.5 grams per lbs bodyweight), no skimping on good fats, and 16 solid hours of fasting per day.
** Add to this I will be taking creatine, fish oils, vit b, multi vit, vit c, zinc and magnesium,
Questions - If I may
1) Is their enough of a gap between meal 2 and my training time (from his website, it seems about right as I wont be training fasted, but I will try and keep just under a 2 hour gap between meal two and training.
2) Can I have a whey shake just before gym? * I cant see why not, because I am not following the protocol which has one training early (directly after the fast)
Looking forward to sticking to this to the T for the next few months, and see what happens! Also, I will lower calories over the weekend (mainly from carbs), but will keep protein the same and drop fat a bit. Maybe drop down to a total of 2500 calories per day over the weekend.
I really hope I can lean out but at the same time gain some muscle!
