Before this review goes into any detail on why the intermittent fasting diet will work if you want to gain muscle and lose fat, we need to clear up the myth that there is a perfect training and diet regime to guarantee results. Any bodybuilder will know that each day and each workout is another opportunity to learn more about his/her body.
Bodybuilding is a learning curve and only the professional bodybuilders who do this for a living get that predictability and self-knowledge down to a fine art. Knowing exactly how your body will respond to a new way of training and a new way of dieting is the objective of any good bodybuilder and is built from trial and error.
Intermittent fasting (IF) is switching the normal 8 hours of fasting that we do when we sleep to 8 hours of eating and 16 hours of fasting. However to do the calculations for the IF diet one needs to know what your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) is. When you know your own TDEE you will be able to eat exactly the same amount that you use for energy and you will not gain fat or lose fat.
Just like finding someone at the gym who after training with a 5 X 5 training method for 12 weeks managers to gain 5 pounds of muscle, while another person doing the same training for 12 weeks will not gain any muscle. There is no secret method that will work wonders for everyone, we are all different and we all have a different mix of genes.
There are many bodybuilders who find it stressful eating 5 or 6 well balanced meals a day and doing the IF diet where they get to eat a big meal at night and another early the next morning makes more sense. However it certainly can have a negative effect on your energy and your performance if you get to the gym late afternoon and you have not eaten for 12 hours.
The point is that you donít know if it will work for you until you try. Motivation is the key ingredient here because your results will come from your attitude to both your diet and your training. As mentioned above every person needs to discover what works best for them with time and patience we slowly learn a little more about ourselves.
