Intermittent Fasting and Coffee Intake – [Video]

Some asked about intermittent fasting and coffee intake. In this video I discuss my current strategy, which is to consume coffee in my fasting window, in the morning. I drink black coffee, and sometimes I put a stevia pill in it (which is non-caloric).

My Current (Feb. 2017) Workout Strategy with Intermittent Fasting – [Video]

Post Workout Meal – 20 Hours Fasted [Dec. 2016]

Intermittent Fasting 16-8 for 8 Weeks in Resistance Trained Males – [2016 Study]

intermittent-fasting-and-8-weeks-of-resistance-training-2016-study

Researchers from universities in Italy, Brazil and the United States did a study comparing resistance trained (RT) athletes who engaged in intermittent fasting (16/8) with RT athletes who ate normally.

The experiment ran for 8 weeks and the study was published in the Journal of Translational Medicine in October, 2016. You can read it here.

My purpose with this post is to give some thoughts about this study. I also did a video review.

The last time I posted about my blood work was in March 2016. Here is my August 2016 update:

June 2016 – Physique Update [+ Current Protocols IF, CT…]

I took this video circa mid-June 2016.

A few words about my current protocol

To get some context, please read this short journal first.

  1. I managed to return to my April (2016) weight (my weight before the 1 month perturbation experiment) with a few days of overfeeding. Water retention from creatine intake may have helped.
  1. After 1 month of almost no IF (intermittent fasting), I resumed ~daily IF 20-4 (20 hours of fasting, 4 hours of eating), 2 meals. I time my meals between 2-6 P.M. most of the days.
