A starting would be to not eat food for about 16-ish hours, and then eat some food. The next day, try to squeak by little longer in the fasting period, or keep it the same, either way.
Unless I’m mistaken, there’s no huge difference between the few name-brand diets you mentioned in your first post. Strategic fasting isn’t anything new, it’s been around bodybuilding for decades and it can work if you’re smart about it. The plans you mentioned do lay things out in more detail, but make sure you find the common thread between them.
As far as what diet “worked best” for me, I’ve tried a kind of pulse feasting (having 2 scoops of MAG-10 once in the morning, my workout nutrition in the afternoon, and a big solid dinner). I felt good, performed well, and “accidentally” dropped some fat without changing my training. But I was at my all-time leanest years ago when I ate four meals a day (plus my workout shake) and was training specifically for fat loss. So, not sure how you want to interpret my results.
I’ll likely try the top schedule. [/quote]
I sure hope so, otherwise that’ll have been a total waste of your time.[/quote]
I LOLed. Nice.[/quote]
When you have a shitty internship that gives 2-3 hrs of work to complete in 8 hrs for 10 weeks you have quite a bit of time to waste Whats even sadder is most of my work is done using excel LOL
anyway thanks for the input guys. I’m going to try 16/8 when school starts and see how that goes and adjust accordingly
