Self Experiment: Intermittent Fasting

6 05 2012

4-10-12 I weighed about 182 pounds

5-6-12 Today I weighed in at about 178 pounds, and this is after cheating the past two days.

Four pounds in 1 month isn’t bad at all, but just for fun I’m going to add a new experiment, intermittent fasting, specifically the leangains diet.

The basics:

  • Eat only between noon and 8 pm.
  • Stay on same general diet.  High protein, medium fat, s/low carb.
  • Keep off alcohol.  Besides yesterday, I haven’t been drinking alcohol at all.  May is the month when most of my friends have birthdays, so we’ll see, but I’ll probably minimize it to once per week at most.

And that’s it!


Hypothesis:  I really have none.  Even without intermittent fasting, I should continue to lose weight since I stopped drinking a gallon of milk a day and continue to workout intensely.  After I get where I want to be, I’ll continue IMF and see if I can bring my BF% even lower without much effort.

Follow up: Video to come when I feel I’m where I want to be.
