For the last several months I've been doing 20 hr fasts on an every other day basis. Although performance is steadily moving along, I might give the 12-6 protocol a shot. Running on empty in the am (higher metabolic output) and cut-off at 6pm seems ideal for the fat-loss furnace. Not to mention the supposed health benefits of IF.

Keep us updated on your progress though. Its a good experiment.

Kevin, thanks for being a lab rat for the team. I know you said performance is increasing, but your carbs are so low (even protein is low)! Your lifts have continued to go up and times have gone down? I like the idea and use a similar approach to cut fat...vegs, lean meat, fish and olive oil, eggs, and that's about it, but I eat throughout the day instead of IF. Keep up the good work!

Larry,
many of us who've used IF have noticed this trend: While fasting your ability to exert external force goes up, but metcon drops. When timings are more regular metcon goes right back up! At least its been my experience. So basically if I'm fasting and I'm about to go do something involving intense metcon I'll have a 3-4 block zone meal consisting of lean, low glycemic, whole foods about 1-2 hours prior.

Hey Larry great to see you here on the dark side !

I have been doing mostly body weight stuff similar to Angie, Barbra, and Cindy mostly Barbra variations and have had continued progress in times, but I guess the intervals are to short to deplete glycogen stores. I have defiantly not lost any muscle mass! As far as IF is concerned I am sold in the biggest way after 6 months IF has done nothing but improve my comp/performance and stabilized my blood sugar more than anything else which was an issue for me.

Cheers

Kevin and Pierre, thanks. I might give a go at something similar. I tend to gain fat in the winter and lose it spring/summer. Usually I start creatine supplementation November/December and work on strength/power. When I run out of the big assed bottle of creatine I stop. This and my lack of total focus on wintertime nutrition leads to about 10 pounds, most water, some fat from sub par diet. Spring I usually tighten up diet, go off creatine, and use the strength gains to hit metcon hard I'm going to play around with this a little and see what happens. Thanks again guys.

Wow back at 175 again! I must have been really constipated attributing a good percent to stuff in gi track and water retention. Any way cool experiment and as you can see I even upped my carbs by adding fruit as the "all veg" was just to low carb and I was getting that thirsty feeling. Good stuff and just under 2 weeks, as usual thanks Rob.
