its definitely not for everyone..... i found i really enjoyed it ( not having to think about food as much, and getting to have FILLING meals at mealtime.
I also noticed an incredible gain in strength while doing IF... were talking some lifts i was doing 50% to even 100% more weight! ANd i dont lift light, and i always go to failure, so its not like i was wimping out before --> i was able to go from DL 155X5 to 185lbX5, OVERNIGHT practically
,y chest flys went from 15 pounds to 25 pound DBs... these are examples....
ANyway, my "theory" is that my body, for the last two years, has, for the MOST part , been in a constant state of depletion, a caloric deficit... prettyy much all the time. SO when i did IFng, and was able to eat MORE in one sitting, some of that food actually went into glycogen storage in my liver and muscles...... leaving me "pumped" or "swole" (which idint like, actuially), with real energy to use and burn during my lifts.... it made a HIGE difference
on the down side, because i would "stuff" myself dduring those 2 or 3 meals in the eating window, i always felt like i was in a constant state of bloatiness.... YUCK
