Re: Intermittent Fasting (IF) Where to start?

Nothing but excellent things to say about intermittent fasting. Used it with fat loss in mind.

I'm down 20 pounds in 2.5 months. Systolic blood pressure is down, triglycerides down, bloodwork is awesome.

I'm a firefighter/emt....sleep deprivation and stress are the norm. And it still worked.

My method of training was crossfit while doing IF. Still worked

Re: Intermittent Fasting (IF) Where to start?

I liked to it. When fat loss was a goal it was pretty handy. Training under it kinda sucked though I founded caffeine and whey pre workout went a long way. It wasn't BCAA but Whey is pretty close though it technically has around 100+ calories and a few carbs.

I did like that it retaught me that I could for extended periods without having to eat. I've always kind of done that on Sundays generally eating lightly one meal and a light snack but it was interesting on a consistent basis.

I don't know if you'd be planning to cut, bulk or recomp on it. But there are less convoluted ways to do each. The eating pattern creates an obstacle to fitness, though it may be ok if only fat loss or muscle gain is the goal.
Read more about IF. For instance, an e-book by Berardi. Its the best analysis of IF I know.

I have been doing it for 2 years.
I have bulked with it, lost weight with it and now I do IF for maintenance.
Training 6 mornings a week plus 3-5 evenings.
As far as Ive seen it doesnt affect my performance and it suits me perfectly.

Re: Intermittent Fasting (IF) Where to start?

I have been down the eating disorder route before, hence my hesitance towards this. However since I've made my recovery, it has seemed like im almost afraid to not eat at regular intervals.

The past 2 days (started saturday night 9pm) i've done 14/10ish, I have to say up until the last like 2 hours it has gone pretty well, workouts are solid, feel better than eating all the time. yes, I am aware it has only been 2 days. just my experience so far.

Eating is simple. No breakfast. I fast from 9-10 pm til 2-3 pm (Im Spanish, we have late lunch and dinner).

I usually do 2-3 meals per day. It depends wether I feel hungry or not.
I have tried several macro proportions but in the end, and specially now that I want to keep in a weight, I just eat what I feel like.

Training is:
- 3 days of kind of crossfit (mostly bodyweight plus some olimpyc lifts or kettlebells).
- 3 days of running
All these days I do about 30of yoga and balance work after training.

In the evenings Itrain 5 days: 3 hours of wado ryu karate + 2 hours of boxing per week.
