Averages about 18 hours every day. (Eating 1pm-7pm) Weekends may be less if I am out later and eat.

For me, 15 to 18 hours 6 days per week. Not Sundays.

I've been running on an average of 2400 calories a day. About 10/30/60 Carb/Pro/Fat. So nothing like the Zone at all. Back during the mass gain I was at 4-5000 calories a day. Ridiculous.

I'm bumping up to nearly 3000 a day (average) next week. I'm going to just focus on strength numbers for the rest of '07, and maybe run another mass gain cycle in early '08.

4 - 6 days per week...depending on my work/travel schedule
15 - 18 hours

I tried to go longer, but after 16.5/17 hours all I could think about was food. Sixteen seemd to be the magical number for me.

I do it every day of the week. 14 hours eating nothing and then a small work out at midday, and a snack then. Without the snack, I'm going 20 hours without a big meal.

This is less of fasting for me, and more of following the warrior diet.
