Have heard several folks voice favorable opinions on LeanGains style of I-F and am wondering if anyone would be willing to post a walk through. A walkthrough on not eating? you say! I know it sounds facetious but all my years cutting weight for wrestling only taught me that fasting/starving myself led to acheing bones, shrinking muscles, and a spacey mind.

I am looking to shape up a little tighter for summer and will continue lifting heavy to keep my LBM up

Any and all help is appreciated!

This isn't fasting but to achieve your goals look into Velocity Diet. I guinea pig myself on different ideas and theories, just to educate myself. It was very affective and lasts 28 days. Just do exactly as it says. It's a pricey upfront cost but its cheaper than buying a months worth of food so long term savings is there. You still need to eat right after the fact to keep your look so your eating has to be spot on. But it works and in a short time. Good luck. Phone Post 3.0

I don't count calories or dick around with macros and all that shit. The quick and easy "what's working for me" method:

Only eat between noon and 8PM, though on non-workout days I sometimes tighten this to 1PM-7PM.

I work out around 10 AM, weights, lasts around 40 minutes. I then wait about an hour to eat.

On NON workout days I eat two or three meals, not huge portions, consisting of about any cut of meat - generally steak (ribeye, strip) or chicken that I've grilled - and a good helping of a veggie. Broccoli and spinach are my go-to. There's a Tuscan seasoned broccoli in a steamer bag in the frozen food section that is AWESOME. I usually have an apple or pear a day too. So basically higher fat content in the meat, pretty much only carbs from veggies.

On workout days I eat two or three meals, larger than non-workout days, my biggest being my first meal of the day. It consists of a leaner meat like sirloin, chicken breast, or fish, a veggie, and either quinoa, brown rice, sweet potato, or baked potato. My last/later meal in the day will taper off the carb.

I give myself two cheat meals a week, usually pizza or biscuits and gravy.

Other than the cheat meal I really eat no grains but quinoa, which you can make taste like roman noodles. I really limit my dairy, but am not opposed to occasional cheese on my higher fat days.

It make take about a week to get used to the fasting part - stick it out. You aren't going to starve to death. Once you're used to it you'll feel pretty damn good.

Hope this helps.

I know it's not directed at me, but I seem to be MORE focused working out fasted. I do not use supplements except amino acid pills and a sublingual b-12 vitamin 30 minutes before working out.
