"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I fast 4-5 days per week. Only 1 meal per day. Really has helped me a lot.

Today was:
Water
Black Coffee

Work until 5. Train Jiu Jitsu for 1 hour.

Just finished dinner
1 banana
4 prunes
handful grapes
Chicken with Brown and Jasmine rice
1 cup yogurt

Feel really good today. No more weight issues, no more counting calories, no more obsessing all day about my next meal.

How does this diet prevent you from obsessing over the next meal? I'd starve to death eating only what you eat??

That diet is insane. I would commit suicide before I jump on a diet like that. It is also very unnecessary.

I used to count calories and eat 5 times per day. I'd have to think about what I'm eating next and when I'm eating it. did that for years and I went up and down in weight. I'd do good all day but at night I'd over eat. Reducing to one meal per day fixed it.

I make a real good meal at night and eat until I'm satisfied. Works for me.

I've been doing this for the last 4 months or so, combined with actually having time to do some decent training again. Suprisingly I have found it much easier to stick to than the tradition 4-6 smaller meals spaced out throughout day.

Went from a very fat 279lbs to a not to flabby 226lbs. (My goal is to get down to about 205lbs) I am currently consuming 1500 kcal between the hours of 6pm to 9pm then fasting until 6pm the next day. On a training days I will have a 200 kcal snack 30 mins before my workout which is usually at 6.30pm then have the remainder of my kcals afterwards. Non training days I will have a 1000 kcal main meal and use the rest up on snacks throughout the evening. I'm a BIG eater and I find holding out for a decent sized meal easier than having 5-6 crappy little 2-300 kcal meals that don't satisfy me.
In terms of strength levels ect i havent seen anything negative. I did find having that small snack prior to training does however improved my focus somewhat. The left pic was taken on June 1st (279lbs) the right on 1st October (230lbs)

I partially fast from protein and carbs. I eat high carb low protein during a.m. meals, low carb high protein during p.m. meals. Moderate to low fat, depending on bodyweight goals. Works well.

Hi,

great thread.

For a long time I have been using intermittent fasting 16/8, but now I'm at 20/4.
20/4 is best for me and it seems to me the most effective.
During the four-hour window I have 2 meals.

First meal:
0400 PM
Chicken meat (grams) or beef (300 grams) or soy meat (150 g).
Large quantities of vegetables (tomato, carrot, peas ...)
yoghurt dressing
Hard cheese 45% fat
Whole milk
4 scoop seeds (60-70 g sunflower-mostly)

Second meal:
0730PM
Omelette (5 pcs eggs)
250 g full-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop protein Syntha-6
Cube of dark chocolate 75% -90% cocoa
whole milk
4 scoop seeds (60-70 g sunflower-mostly

My diet consists of: high in protein and fat, low in carbohydrates.
Once every two weeks I'll make carb free day and eat what I feel like (biscuits, jam, biscuits, pasta, baby wheat semolina, oats ..............)

What keeps you from obsessing all day about what you could be eating before the big meal?I've tried tons of diets over my 60 years and have found that if I was intentionally cutting out eating at some time of the day or limiting this and that food type I dwelled on eating way to much and my weight bounced up and down. Only by just eating less over all was I ever able to keep my weight down.

I find just the opposite. I haven't eaten yet today and this is the first time I've thought about it.

When you said "only by eating less overall was I ever able to keep my weight down" that's exactly what I'm doing too just in a different way I guess.

Hope that makes sense,
