I happened to catch this post on my RSS feed and checked back to see if anybody posted the obvious answer...2400 calories at 185# is nowhere near enough to make a novice program like Rip's work. IF might help protein synthesis and insulin sensitivity, but that doesn't mean jack when you're eating nearly 1000 calories too little to make gains. This alone is why I rarely suggest IF for people attempting to gain strength. Eat like a beast, meet your goals, and then reassess and see if IF is something you can do for maintenance. Just my $.02
