I do window fasting and am already lean, but I love chips and coca cola, when I do eat dinners fairly frequently. I agree that zero carb will push you to the max and you will feel it. I usually eat fish and greens for Lent and will do so again. If you don't have carbs in this scenario you will feel how light and good (lacking satiety) this food goes through you --- you will be constantly hungry until you adapt, and even then you'll feel it. I think your bowels are also best healed by eating any type of green you want and fish.

We will see if I can do it. I don't think I'd be able to get by without coffee in the mornings, but I'm actually going to cut out coke, almost all carbs except for beans or lentils/peanut butter, and booze for Lent.

Let's do it boys.

RE: Fasting
Fasting, something I stumbled upon by chance.

Started with two meals a day, breakfast and lunch, or breakfast and dinner respectfully. Found it hard to fast on breakfast unless I was doing nothing strenuous for the day.

Then got down to one meal a day. At the time was working from home. Was able to start fasting two and three days at a time. Which was about the longest I could make it.

Making it more of a long term process, and adapting your body to it, gets the results.

I went from somewhere around 190-195 to 158 in about 6 months.

My biggest takeaway is cut the sugar out. Replace with fruits.

RE: Fasting
I’m a believer. Been doing intermittent fasting for a year now and am in the best shape of my life at 39. I think a daily 17-18 hour fast paired with vigorous weight training sessions in the last hour of fasting is key to getting lean and feeling good.

Running a consistent caloric deficit will definitely make you lose weight and the fasting facilitates that. No need to cut out carbs all together but really watch the processed sugar intake. Sugar is in EVERYTHING here in USA.

I’ve even noticed that IF has gotten rid of other ancillary maladies like heartburn. And I swear my vision has gotten BETTER. Not sure how that is possible.

RE: Fasting
Has anyone been able to combine a one meal per day protocol with lifting and maintaining a muscular physique? I'd love to do OMAD for the simplicity and health benefits, but I have serious doubts about being able to consume enough calories in such a limited window to maintain my current build. Especially if I'm also mostly eating natural, unprocessed foods like beef, eggs, potatoes, rice, etc... Does your body just get used to eating absolutely enormous quantities of food in a single sitting?

I made some very good gains a couple years ago on intermittent fasting.

I wasn't quite at OMAD, but I was down to a 4 hour window where I would eat at 1pm and 5pm.

I would recommend getting down to a small window, then doing OMAD a couple of days a week when your ready.

That said, if you go full OMAD let us know the results. I'm beginning a fast soon and wonder how it will effect my muscle weight.

RE: Fasting
I tried doing a 10 mile hike while in a 24-hour fasted state to see how I'd feel. After the hike I went to a buffet and ate 3 full plates of various meats and seafoods.

I felt absolutely serene when I woke up the next day and felt no soreness whatsoever. I still feel more calm and focused since then. I'm definitely sold on this now.
