    @tirebob - that's awesome man!

    I did not have as much luck. Within a 12 day span over the Holidays I gained 35lbs while going to the gym 11 out of those 12 days.

    I did not however stick to IF and I was consuming more calories (sugars/carbs etc) than I normally would. We'll say more than double on average per day. I am curious if I had stuck to that fasting window if my weight would have fluctuated as much.

    After a week in the gym, back to IF and watching my calories/carbs I've shed 25 of those pounds which I imagine were mostly water weight.

    I feel great again and know that I've been building steady muscle under all the skin/fat.

    My body is fucking broken though. I could have one night where I drink or have pizza etc and next morning scale reflects a 10lb surplus.

    I've learned through my 30 some odd years on the planet that when it comes to weight/exercise/gains and growth that you can't really have any expectations as they generally only cause the wrong mindset and often causes setbacks or lead to disappointment etc.
    Woahhh that is a crazy gain! I really cannot understand why in particular it seems to be working so well for me and then someone else can have a radically different result. Are you eating a more restrictive diet like Keto or the like and maybe the big difference in foods has a larger effect in the short term when you fall off the wagon? I know my diet has not been like Keto where it is super meat/fat heavy. I tend to eat a massive amount of veggies and a lot less meat than before so maybe it just wasn't as difficult for my body to adjust? Man that is really tough to figure out. Good on you for bouncing back though man!

    How In the hell did you put on what 3 pounds a day ? How is that even possible ?
    A Ferrari is a high maintenance chick, you spend money regardless of what you do with her. You can baby the C63, or slap on all seasons, and you won't be spending anything but yearly maintenance. Of course that's like dating a stripper and refusing to fuck her, which would make you gay.

    You sure your scale works correctly?

    When I'm working on losing weight I'm low carb low calorie, around 1200-1500/day and aiming for 150-200g of protein as well. It feels like my body reacts very poorly to carbohydrate intake and then balloons but always comes back down a couple days later. When my body normalizes i'll have a day or two when I'm peeing 20+ times in a day. It's irritating as fuck

    I wish I could tell you scientifically but i would say it's mostly bloating and water retention.

    Yes I'm certain LOL, it has been happening for years, and i've monitored afterwards. I imagine if I didn't look at the scale things would normalise after time but it's easy to be ignorant and not hold yourself accountable by not watching the scale (for me anyway)

    So, I know early in the thread a few guys were talking about a 16 hour daily fast, but I'm wondering if you get the same benefits from a slightly shorter fast, like 14 hours? Is there any science behind the length of time that is required to see the benefits? Just based on a wild-assed-guess I'd think it had to be longer than 12 hours. Any studies on this? I guess if you are doing calorie restriction then a shorter eating window might be helpful.

    I don't have anything handy, but the gist of the IF is to deplete your body's glycogen stores (from your last meal) and force your body to then burn fat. Your glycogen stores last about 12 hours, so the longer the fasting period beyond 12 hours, the more effective IF will be.

    I would imagine results would vary depending on how clean someone eats during their consumption period... I'm not sure what the results would be of super clean eating and 14hrs of fasting vs. something like an 18hr fast and then nothing but pizza.

    I stopped IF for about 3 weeks over the holidays, but am back at it now. I shoot for a minimum of 16 hours and work's been so crazy that sometimes I go 18++ without really noticing. I have to admit, this isn't based on anything other than my own justification, but the longer I fast, the less guilty I feel about eating less clean or having a drink in the evening.

    So 14+ hours should be beneficial. Cool.

    Not really... even the 16hr is borderline. The real magic STARTS around 16hrs... 18hrs is easy noon-6, or 2-8 still gives you two meals around standard feeding times

    Does this count for sleeping? Like if I eat supper st 7 then donít have lunch the next day till 2pm, is that considered an IF? I usually donít eat until the afternoon anyways as I like to workout on an empty stomach.

    I think I posted it earlier in the thread but I use an app called Zero. In the app there is a “Science” section where they post content about studies and different research and etc. on IF however, I would recommend doing your own research. Also, on the app, you can customize your fast, but it is preset to do 16/8 and a circadian rhythm fast which is for 13 hours.
