Today I started doing intermittent fasting!! I am doing the 16-8 protocol (LEAN Gains) I am 70kilos ,, my plan is to keep on bulking until I reach 73,,, yes I am bulking with IF this first week is to figure out if my current calorie intake of 3400calories will make me gain 1/2 a pound as I've been doing!!! I am expecting to see a difference just by introducing IF!!! we'll see how it goes!! I am really enthusiastic about this!!!!!!
if there's anybody out there who's done or is doing this right now It would be great to hear your experience on IF!

I'm right here with you. I do the 16-8 and I absolutely love it.

Right now, I am healing after surgery, so I am not allowed to work out in any way other than calm walking. Sad I can say, though, that I normally do my strength training in the morning, and I have never had a bad workout after I started IF. I have pushed myself SO FAR this last year doing this.

I am, however, consuming calories (and macros) at maintenance level to ensure that I lose as little muscle as possible while working out.

Right now I consume 3300 calories per day, and keeping track like this, with a keen eye on proteins and fats in particular, makes it super easy. I have NEVER had better or bigger meals, and the food takes away all sugar cravings. Smile What's there to NOT like?

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Lean bulking is the way to go; you also seem to understand bulking so…
Now about 16-8 protocol I don’t know if it will make that big of a difference in someone that is already doing everything else right, I just do it because it allows me to micromanage my diet.

16:8 is my preferred cycle...i opt to skip carbs until after workouts to maximize insulin response.

did you notice that all those posts were from 2013?
If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!

Yes shape shift - you were wrong, you jumped the gun and your choice of words were wrong.
