Cheers guys.
So far I really like it, I have gain around 5 pounds from when I started this and have kept fat gain to a minimum. For me the best part is the extra energy during a workout from eating over half my days calories at one time right before lifting.

I am also almost never hungry during the day and my body always starts to get really hungry around the time it is suppose to. I didn't really notice an adjustment period either which was really nice. I recommend it to anyone who doesn't have time during the day or is a big fan of night time feasting.

Can I press you for a few details, how are you timing stuff to fit in with your workouts? How precise are you being with macros/calories etc? Anything else.

With timing I eat around 45mins before my actual workset, and then again about 45 mins after my last workset. I eat the exact same thing everyday so calories are always around 5,300-5,500. I used to track macros but once I started eating in the 4,000 calorie range I stopped, but I have a pretty good idea where everything is.

I eat a very high protein and fat diet, with a moderate carb intake. The only things I really eat that are carbs is a 2 bananas and 2 apples, 2 slices toast, and a cup of oatmeal.

Not sure if I answered everything fully, will be back on in about 1 hour/hour and a half.

Well, I don't have any real experience with IF, but I can say it works.
The only related thing I have to say, for me, I've done several times heavy sessions without any meal before from the previous day, and had no problem at all, and I had sometimes done PRs.

So strength wise, I can say there is not any loss if I start my training after a fasting period, as long as I do eat well and big after.

About Fat Loss, I can say any strategy can work for me.
Anyway lately I don't eat like I was before (5-6 meals every 3 hours or so) and I keep mostly of my meals and my big meals during the second part/half of my day, and usually it's also the second part/half of the day when I train.

Anyway, these days I can't experiment with diet things etc, my focus is on other things.
But I will in the future do experiment more on IF and related things.
