    Hey Base - I'll def be following along. I like the idea of the HI-LV training with the IF. It makes alot of sense to me. Looking forward to hearing your overall experience with this!

    Baseline, is that really all you are gonna eat ................ nothing between 14.45 and 05.45?

    Subscribed as well. Very interested in this diet. Those step mills are absolutely killer. Did 15 min at level 15 out of 20 for the first time ever this morning. Those alone want to tear off the fat. Good luck and can't wait to see how it goes.

    Definitely let us know how hard the adjustment to your new eating schedule is. I think it would be pretty hard going from eating every 2-3 hours to having to wait 15 hours before your next meal.

    High Intensity Training makes sense to me as well m8... The only time I 'up' the volume is when AAS go higher...

    Yes that is my plan, I may add some fats to the chicken meal but not a lot...

    This is an Intermittent Fasting Diet....

    The theory being that you consume all of your food PWO and over an 8 hour window... In this PWO window Protein Synthesis is going to be high and the huge amount of food you are eating (in this short period of time (8 hrs)) will increase this further more... Creating a state where calories are partitioned more efficiently and muscle gains can be made (In theory if you eat 2500 calories in 8 hrs during those 8 hours you can build muscle because there is a massive calorie surplus plus the increased protein synthesis PWO...

    When you stop eating and begin to 'fast' the theory is that you are running on fat... I agree with that, we burn mostly fat when the heart rate is kept low... During this fast you are suppose to keep active, keeping the heart ticking over at a slightly elevated rate to increase fat oxidation (burning body fat)... Fasting will also decrease insulin and increase insulin sensitivity meaning that when you do eat a large carb meal the carbs will be stored as glycogen more efficiently (and less as bodyfat, look into calorie partitioning) and actually decrease hunger (in theory, I will let you know)

    To elaborate further, I wanted to point out to people that this diet will have you in both a nice caloric deficit AND surplus within a 24 hour period... not at the exact same time obviously... but as the fasting period wears on, and particularly in the last few hours, you will be in a deficit. During the feeding phase, you will be in a surplus. As such, you get the best of both worlds. Fat loss as you are primarily burning fat without the presence of carbs/glucose and no insulin secretion during the fast, and topping off glycogen stores, repairing/building new tissue etc. during the feast due to the abundance of calories in a relatively short timeframe.

    I've run the diet and loved it, and I wasn't nearly as disciplined as I know Base will be on this one... so I can't wait to see his results!!!

    I'm subscribed, love something new.

    What is the timeframe to drop to single figures? Any 'days off' the diet planned at all?

    No veggies?

    Time frame is 10-12 weeks but may be extended (it really depends on how I look)


    No planned days off the diet and there will be none either. I planned a re-feed/binge into my last cut and TBH I think it held me back. A re-feed is not really required unless you are going REALLY low on cals/carbs IMO. If I decided that I needed a re-feed it would simply be a case of increasing my brown rice intake. A carb re-feed is one thing, an 'eat all the shit you crave' re-feed is totally unnecessary and the term 'bro-science' comes to mind when people insist that a day of eating shit while cutting 'helps them and its a good idea'.

    Veggies.... Well I dont know if i could bare stuffing any more in my mouth in this short period of time.... However I was considering eating veggies (negative calorie green veggies) while fasting to keep me full and give me my daily vits.... Would like to hear GB's views on that idea as well.

Fully agree with this. Guess what I was really getting at was, do you have a clear 10-12 weeks without any 'events' that may throw you off. Particularly with Christmas being within that 10-12 week timeframe.

    Veggies.... Well I dont know if i could bare stuffing any more in my mouth in this short period of time.... However I was considering eating veggies (negative calorie green veggies) while fasting to keep me full and give me my daily vits.... Would like to hear GB's views on that idea as well. Interesting idea, during the fast. WOuldn't have even considered it, but now you mention it.......
    Not sure my other half would be best pleased if I tried this, she thinks I have an eating disorder as it is. But, depending on your results I may give it a whirl next year.

    This, this, THIS!!!!!! This little blurb should be a sticky unto itself... I agree 1 million percent on all points.

    Negative calorie or not, that's not fasting mate. It's not just about the calories, it's about the other metabolic functions that happen when you ingest food. You'd be cheating yourself if you didn't do an all out fast. Trust me, you will NOT be hungry. I have a ridiculous appetite, and I was amazed at how NOT hungry I was. I always started to get hungry within the last hour or 2 of the fast, but that just makes meal 1 THAT much sweeter and rewarding. You will literally be able to feel the endorphin rush when you eat... and you will be aware of your body feeling better, minute by minute. At least that's the sensation I had, particularly in the first week or so.

    Even Martin from leangains admits that he reluctantly allows BCAA's prior to training, because it's not technically fasting. Granted BCAA's may contain a few calories vs. negative calorie greens, but again, it's about more than just calories.

    If you find yourself having a tough time dealing with the hunger, fill up on water. Give the diet a chance to work it's magic!

    So if your going to be doing high intensity low volume workouts while fasting why is it so bad to do high intensity cardio while fasting?
    Obviously your heart rate probably wont get as high as HI cardio, but there have been HILV workouts I have done where I felt like my heart was going to beat through my chest. Would that not be the same as high intensity cardio?

    I'd find that cumbersome as hell. Consider supplementing with a green drink superfood, at least during your IF diet. I use Macro Greens from a company called Macro Life Naturals. They also have a 'red' version (berry and fruit extracts, etc) called Miracle Reds. I take a serving of each, 3 times daily as I don't eat nearly enough fruit and veggies to reap the health benefits.

    At least look it up and see what you think. Not the cheapest stuff out there mind you, but excellent quality and the taste, IMO, is very good for what it is. Let me know what you think!

    PS - I know I've gotten Slimmer to get on the Macro Greens (I don't think she has the Reds though, Slim?), and pretty sure I got Twist on them too.

    My heart rate will be high but not ridiculous while in training... TBH I think the whole 'you go catabolic if you do stuff when fasted' is a myth...

    The reason I wouldn't do fasted HIIT is because of the energy/ fuel requirements... HIIT is a glucose dependent training system so why do it at a time where glycogen stores are suposeably 'depleted'.

    Weight training is much less glucose dependent that HIIT.... ATP and Glycogen are the primary fuel sources but the overall energy output is going to be much lower than a hard HIIT session.

    The consumption of BCAA's pre-training will prevent muscle catabolism (if it even actually occurs)... There are also multiple advantages (and possibly disadvantages) to training with weights while fasted. I will try to dig this out and add it...

    GB, you have read into the program, can you elaborate...

    Yes.

    My diet will remain as above all the time (Saturday is steak day tho, so maybe steak and a baked potato)

    Although I am no cycling calories/carbs, my body is doing it for me...

    On training days I will be doing a weight session and a cardio session and will possibly burn around 750 cals each training day (4 days per week)... So on those days my energy in will be he same but my energy out will increase...

    On my rest days (wed and sun) my additional energy out will be zero. So on this days my body will see this as a higher carb day/ slight carb re-feed or replenishment for the next two training days.

    On a Saturday my additional energy out will be about approximately half that of energy out on training days as I will only be doing a cardio session.

    It's great how pictures can make you hungry!!!

    Is the morning workout an important factor for this type of diet? I'm not in a position where i could do a morning workout due to job timings etc

    What's the macro values of your meals? Like others i will be watching your thread and think it would be good to know your intake.

    Do you plan on doing bf checks throughout?

    With your diet are you trying to meet any goals for the carb/fat/pro split?
    From what you posted I gathered a split around 20/20/60 carb/fat/pro.
    I know there are no "set rules" for this diet but I thought the purpose of your "re-feeding" after the fast was to re fuel your body for coming workouts. Is there a specific reason you chose to go with a 20% carb setup with your meals?

    Also how did your back workout go today? Just wanting to keep a gauge on how you feel during workouts with this diet.

    *Training was fine, no lack of energy

    *First food meal was tough to get down in one go but I got there in the end

    *Slight hip flexor/ groin strain from the cardio last night (I always get this when I start back up on the CV)

    *No real hunger cravings at all yet




    Im going to have to answer any questions when I get some time, sorry guys.

    Was happy to read the bullet points above!! Take note over the next week or so, and let me know if you think you actually feel MORE energized while training fasted. I did, and it was amazing... completely counter intuitive. The body's adaptive capacity is truly amazing!

    I'll be following, looking forward to watching you kill this.

    Seems like this type of diet would be tough over the holidays, you must have very supportive family/friends?

    Good luck man.

    I have the Green, Red and Purple. And need to be more routine about it like you are!

    Day 3

    Diet as planned... No training, no cv...

    Fitting bathroom for 6 hours has knackered me tho!

    A few pics, not much left to do now... Finnish tiling, fit new sink and toilet, put the flooring down, paint and add fittings...

    Ok Base, but you asked for it! I didn't take any before pictures (I ALWAYS fvcking forget to do that, makes me mental!) but I do have construction pics throughout the project. My father in law and I did 100% of the work.

    Those are some great looking places to relax and unwind after a hard workout. Love the stone selection base.
    Looks like you spoil yourself gbrice, are those jets I see in the tub? You convinced your other half to get those by saying its really for her huh...

    lol, I wish bro!!! Do you know I did that work over a year ago now, and have used the shower TWICE? I'm not allowed in that bathroom, as per my wife... I 'filth' everything up with my hair clippings, etc. lol!

    So yea, I busted my ass demoing a 1970's bathroom (think shiny, powder blue wall tile), gutted everything down to the studs... install a tub with jets, custom tile work, granite coutertop, double sink (used to be 1, with a closet where the 2nd one is now)... and am not allowed to use it!! WOMEN!!!

    Day 4

    Diet

    lean mince beef and chicken meals replaced for tuna (4 cans) + 8 oz serving of Lean Mince with tomatoes and chilli...... I couldnt get tot he butchers in time but had the tuna in cans and some bolognase i made at the weekend with the extra lean mince.

    Other than that the diet was as above


    Training

    Legs

    Leg extensions 2 sets of revers drop sets (light weight to start, increase weight (i do 5 increments until I can only get 2 reps out).... try this guys...+ 1 full pyramid set (increase weight, then decrease)

    Leg press (wide) 2 working sets

    Lying Leg Curls 3 working sets

    Standing machine leg curls 2 working sets


    Cardio

    Stepmill - 45 mins, level 4 (i think our levels are different in the UK)


    *Tough cardio session

    *Training session was fine, no lack of energy

    *A little hunger, nothing too bad tho

    The stepmills (stairmaster) in my area are levels 1-20, at level 12 I can barely make 20 min. Major props for knocking out 45 min on that thing. I always head to the cycle after 20 just so I can continue my cardio without dying.

    Yeh our one is level 1-10...

    As Dorian Yates says, over the years the cardio kit has been dumbed down to make you think your doing more

    I'm curious base, how do you cook your basmati? Like it says on the package by soaking it for 30 min, then cook? Or is there a quicker way which tastes just as good? That stuff taste great just plain out of the pan. Good stuff! Glad I copied that off your list..
