I’ve been eating this way for over a decade. I’m 33.
Did the whole bulking thing in my early 20s but had bad digestion / immune system / ibs / ibd symptoms, lethargy, tiredness, crap sleep. Every 2-3 months was always sick.
Cleaned up my eating cold turkey. Read the Warrior Diet.
Stopped the bulking eating.
Went to one huge dinner only. Like 3 servings of whatever meal and 3-5 fruits / veg for dessert.
Eat from 6pm to 9 pm in 1 or 2 sittings. Rest of time I just drink water. r
My experience is very positive.
I don’t see myself going back. Don’t miss breakfast lunch or ‘snacking.’ I’m not huge but find it easier to maintain leanness. At 82kg (180lbs) and body fat at 10% mark without trying. Not that I care for looks, I’m all about performance. Train Wendler Walrus way.
Not tired. Very alert and productive throughout the day instead. No ibs symptoms. Haven’t been ill or sick for ages.
I’ve used this way to gain weight or lose fat. I feel more food conscious in terms of consumption, buying foods, shopping for family meals, environment, being grateful for having something on the table at the end of the day, etc.
I guess as long as you account for number of calories, it doesn’t matter whether it’s in 6 meals, 3 or in my case, one. In my experience I’ve had, 2500kcal is 2500kcal.
Go for it.
