Joel Marion says that one should have either a few weeks a year with smaller eating or a few days a week.
If weeks, little training should be done.
If days a week no training should be done.
He recommends massive calories around training with super high carbs around training.
Very low carbs the rest of the day/week.
Just some thoughts.
Mkay, well the first two don’t really apply, You can reach your calorie needs during the 8 hour window, you don’t necessarily have to take in less calories. They would If I were going to fast-every-other-day method, but I’m going the daily fast, 16 hour fast, 8 hour window to eat.
No offense but you aren’t a big guy. You say you want to get big but are throwing in some weird ass variable into the equation. Why not just do what has been proven over and over again and not worry about this crap?

Hmm…a lot of people haven’t tried a lot of shit. In the end, I still go for a caloric surplus, I don’t have any rules besides the 8 hour window.
I know what you mean though.
It’s just that you don’t have to look around very long to find scientific AND (most importantly in my opinion) anecdotal evidence to back up this IF. I’ve looked a lot and the only people that seem to have anything bad to say about it are people that haven’t tried it. That’s the most important part to me, if I could just find a few people who applied it correctly, yet reported shitty gains I wouldn’t bother. But I can’t find ANY.
Besides, I think when it comes to diet, there is more leeway away from the basics. But yeah…you said what I’ve already asked myself, but I can’t find badmouthing about it anywhere. I mean even DC training has bad-mouthers ha.
