Thanks Robert, I feel the healthiest I have ever felt. I appreciate the encouragement from everyone here, when I first found crossfit I was in a bind.

Jibreel, you're in "the zone" as I call it. When you first start to get a good rythym and feel for IF it's awesome! Your energy levels sore and great motivation and drive follows. Good stuff.

Question about workouts and IF. I have been messing around with IF since this thread started. Today I was busy in the morning and didn't workout until 2:00. I hadn't eaten since 6:00 yesterday (20 hours). I did Murph at 2:00 and was pretty tanked on the last run (though I did manage a pb of 43:24).

I am not sure if I should have eaten a bit before trying the WOD or not...

I just remembered that there was the other thread on meal timing. If I understood Greg rightly the answer is ... it doesn't matter, just vary your fasts and let your work outs fall where they may.

At any rate, time to pig out.

I believe I'm going to start IF'ing this Monday. I have no problems with fasting, so we'll see how it goes!

Do you IF'ers with experience go by the Zone block calorie/macronutrient recommendations, or do you do more/less?

Garrett-

I think you can get by on a little less food than when doing the straight zone, unless you are looking to add weight. I eat bigger meals than when zoning, and try not to eat too much fat and carbs together at the same feeding.

Meal timing...I like the idea of alternating breaking a fast with a meal then working out with breaking a fast with working out...I've got to try that soon as I get over this cold.

Scott,

Forgive my ignorance, but if I recall you're doing the day-on/day-off regimen - correct? If so, are you simply doubling up your portions on the days when you do eat? Thanks.
