I run IF i eat from noon till 8 then fast for 16hrs etc. Its not magical, but I have definitely lost weight from the restriction of late night snacks etc. You could still bulk on IF if you eat an excess of cals. I just have the opinion that there is some benefits to fasting and I enjoy training fasted. Not a magic bullet, but a fantastic tool.

Many MAB'ers advocate/follow IF patterns of feeding. I see no reason it can't work for most any goal so long as you're eating accordingly calorically

I'm cutting right now. I don't eat breakfast, I have protein with water in the morning when I get hungry, then another in the afternoon when/if I get hungry again. After I get home, on training days I have around 500 calories, mostly High GI carbs with some protein, then train. After training I cycle between eating both with and without carbs for dinner.

Although it's not traditional fasting, having protein a couple of times throughout the day keeps me from getting hungry or going catabolic. When I have my high carb pretraining meal I also take caffeine. The effect is insane. My insulin sensitivity is so high that the carbs combine with the stimulants to make me feel like I can move mountains. After eating so little all day I'll usually end up eating over 1000 calories for dinner, which leaves me feeling full when I go to sleep.

My favorite dinner lately has been 2 homemade cheeseburgers. Can't complain about a dinner like that while still shedding pounds.

As for strength, mine has actually gone up after being practically destroyed by keto dieting.

like any cut you may notice a bit of strength loss, but thats your caloric reduction more than anything. LeanGains is a good resource for IF information if your looking into it. I like the 12-8 window cause. I sleep more than half the fasting period and I get to eat a little bit later in the evening and as a night owl that works out well, also it allows me to go out for dinner and such.

I will say this... and I dont mean to sound "elitist" but the general rule of thumb for IF is that your fasting window is larger than your eating window. So if your wanting to give it a go just keep that in mind . I Like it, I have definitely stayed leaner doing it, training fasted is the only way I can train now, If i eat then go to train i just feel like sleeping on the bench :P.

You could probably tell in the long run because all it does is increase your insulin sensitivity considering you eat the same amount of food you would if not using IF. If your insulin resistant, then yes it would be very good for you
