The decision has been made. Intermittent fasting will commence when I figure out what my new work schedule is like. Why am I choosing to cram all my macros into one eating window rather than the six small meals a day I’ve thus far preached? In truth, it’s just something I have to try- Having researched it and only unturned positive feedback, I’m encouraged by the overwhelming consensus that it aids appetite control, and where 6 small meals a day worked for me to start with, my body is now used to it and I’m constantly ravenous.
I like to eat. All the fucking time. So it’s probably going to take some getting used to, especially training on an empty stomach. It’s going to be hard ignoring the old skool rule of protein intake every three hours, especially after training, but I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes. If I fast from 8pm until 12am, it’s pretty much just like I’m ‘skipping breakfast’ except I’m keeping the same amount of calories, just moving them later in the day. The main problem really is going to be waking up at 6am, ravenous (at least to start with) and training on an empty stomach- consuming only creatine and BCAA’s and then going another five hours before having another meal. But if it’s going to help control my eating habits in the long run, then I have to at least give it a shot.
Please don’t inbox me about intermittent fasting, since I’m in no place to give real advice on it yet. YouTube Fastingtwins for some real basic facts, and for everything else, there’s google.
