    Anyone intermittent Fast while builking ?

    Starting a new Job Monday ,

    so im trying to figure out my new training time and eating schedule ,

    working 8am-5pm with one 1hour lunch break

    was thinking does anyone intermittent fast and still get optimal gains ? would make my life easier but only by a little if its worth it ,



    Break fast around

    12:00pm
    5:00pm pre workout meal
    train 6-7pm
    7pm PWO shake
    8pm Dinner
    10pm Bed meal

    I could throw in a meal at 7am like eggs and egg whites , but fasting may be a better choice if it wont hold gains back as for carb intake Im having carbs pre workout and pwo shake and ppwo meal so 3 meals around training rest are PRO/FAT


    I understand having a 8am breakfast will get me protein into my system earlier but does that really matter..

    I tried it. I do believe in the benefits of IF, but with that said, I could not for the life of me get all my macros in by doing so .

    I plan things by the day, not necessarily the hour. So whether I eat a few 1200 cal meals, or one 3500 cal meal... It's all the same to me.

    While I struggle to think of one other living creature that does intermittent fasting by choice, if it works for you, I say do it.

    yeah ,

    don't think it would even be fasting considering im eating at 11pm than fasting till noon only 13 hours pretty normal

    I've used it for cutting which helped alot because Im a big eater so I could eat all my calories in 2 seatings which worked out awesome.

    but for bulking I don't think I could fit all that in 2 meals.
    You can always try and see how it works for you man.
