Intra frasting help
 
Was wondering how did you set up your time for eating and what time for fasting. I kind of want to try it because when I eat, I eat till im over board

First, I simply ask you to remember one thing if you research IF...one side of the fence believes it to have magical qualities, while the other side preaches caution. I preach caution.

I have used a variation of it for nearly 5 years. It is great for me because I love to eat big at night. But despite the press, it is not a magical fat loss plan. I easily bulk on it, as you guys know. Like any other diet you need to monitor intake on some level.

I suggest 2-3 whey shakes during the day along with 2-3 Hydramino or BCAA drinks. This will help you retain muscle mass, and will generally be less than 400 calories. If you choose to not eat anything, understand the (possible) risks.

My advice is to first and foremost make sure your night feedings are high fat. Fat helps me with satiety. The will be full of protein and carbs, obviously, but they also need to be proportionally fat-dense.

I also advise you to plan moderate calorie snacks, such as almonds or pudding with whey protein in it. Something that can help you regulate weight, satisfy cravings and not be filled with cals.

Some guys do 8 hour feeding windows and some 4 or 6. Pick the one that works best for you.
