Background

This is an experiment I did a few months back.

For the last year or so I’ve been interested in reducing unnecessary stimulation and distractions. I’ve been curious to test out what I can and can’t go without. Which are the things that I authentically enjoy doing and which are the things that I think I enjoy (but really don’t) doing.

In the previous parts 1 & 2 I covered the most popularly used types of IFing, and described the various benefits of doing so. This post is about my own brief commentary on IF and personal input on the subject.

My Routine

My personal IF routine that isn’t officially made famous as far as I know of – is as follows:

– Very much like the Leangains approach in terms of getting more calories from carbs on days of workouts, and more calories from healthy fats on rest days. I consume on average 2g of protein per kilo of bodyweight. (This amount can vary from person to person, different people have different genetic potential for successful assimilation of protein. Largely dependent on overall gut-related health. If you get gassy or bloated from your protein powder or from eating too much protein in general chances are you’re getting too much)

– Daily feeding gap of 8 hours and fasting period for 16 hours, with the exception of a 2-day fast (usually 48h) from sunday dinner to tuesday dinner, finished by a workout and massive meal. I always consume the majority of my calories post-workout.

That time is much better spent reading books about things that actually teach you stuff that can be both useful and interesting.Continue Reading…
