    I started intermittent fasting 2-3 months ago and haven't looked back! I'm following the Leangains method of fasting (8 hours of eating and 16 hours fasting) and its getting me the results i'm wanting! It fits in perfectly with my lifestyle also. The 6 small meals method didn't work for me. Getting in all my calories and macros in 2-3 meals wprks way better Just wondering if anyone else has experience with this and if anyone else is using this?

    Just aim for 1000 kcal at lunch and dinner. Shake in the morning. Works for me.

    I'm following the 16:8 protocol at the moment. Haven't really stuck to it recently due to exams, as I don't want to do an exam on an empty rumbling stomch.

    It isn't too hard to stick to, and gets good results. Do you like to train fasted, or do you wait until between meals?

    I prefer to train fasted. Gets me going to the gym when its empty in a morning as well (only full of elderly gents). Afternoon trying to get a bench is like stepping into a WWE Royal Rumble (the squat rack is surprisingly always available though haha)

    Yeah sort of but I'm really lazy with diet. Have a protein shake pre- and post-workout and otherwise just leave eating to as late ad possible. Usually lunch between 2 and 4 and dinner around 9.

    I like **** food far too much to take my diet seriously though

    What are the advantages of doing this as opposed to eating 'normally'. I've heard Pl do this but I don't really understand

    you get to eat larger more satisfying meals, which makes cutting easier for a lot of people, that's basically it (I do IF myself)

    I understand your metabolism speeds up slightly when you fast, supposedly fat loss is also prioritised over muscle but idk how true that is
