Attempting IF – Intermittent Fasting

I was watching a video done by the Hodge twins on YouTube and they mentioned a diet or meal timing plan that worked for them; they called it intermittent fasting. I am not saying listen to YouTube brofessors or look for get lean quick schemes.

However, this meal timing or diet had me curious. Basically, the idea of IF is to have a set window each day where you can eat your daily calories and macronutrients. The rest of the hours in a day you are not supposed to eat anything, which is why it’s called intermittently fasting.

I don’t think of it as a starvation diet, since all you are doing is timing your meals differently. I also don’t think they had any reason to lie since they weren’t selling anything related to it.

In my mind, the only way I can know for sure if it works is to give it a try. I’ll actually do it and save you the trouble. If it works for me, then it might work for you. Keep in mind that all of our bodies our different.

Part of the theme of this website is for me to try different diets and exercise plans and review them to you.

So here goes everyone. I’m about to start. I’ll show you how plump I’ve gotten over the past couple of months and I’ll give you new photos often to monitor results along with a description of my body fat % and how this makes my body feel.

  1. My advice is to get as much information as possible, from different and reliable sources. Make sure that it will not cause a problem for any underlying medical conditions, particularly diabetes.

    Personally, I won’t be trying it because I can’t afford to lose any weight.

    Remember not to fast on those tough workout days or your performance may be affected. Given that the only fuel the brain can use is glucose, it is very noticeable if I go more than a few hours without food.

    I’m keen to hear how you progress.

    • That’s the point lol to test the waters and do this so I can be an educational resource for you. You can actually say “oh a guy who isn’t on steroids tests these diets and exercise plans out and sees if there’s any truth to them” thanks for the feedback 🙂
