I get a lot of questions on diet, nutrition, and that kinda thing.
Well, there are about as many different answers to nutrition questions as there are training questions. And like training, in one way or another, they’re all “right” and all can “work”. It’s just that some stuff works better than others.
For me, when it comes to an eating plan, nothing has ever worked better than not eating during the whole day, and just having all my food in a few hour ‘window’ at night.
It’s called “Intermittent Fasting” – sometimes also called “End of Day (EOD) Refeeds”.
Why do I like it?
-I don’t have to worry about eating throughout the day
-I find myself feeling a lot “lighter” w/o always having food in my system
-my energy levels have skyrocketed
-It sucks at first being hungry during the day (you get used to it pretty quick, though), but the idea of getting to eat a big, fulfilling meal – instead of some pansy-ass, calorie counted meal – makes you get through it
-I can actually be a little more ‘flexible’ w/my diet, and still be good – case in point, a couple nights ago, my dinner consisted of a smaller protein shake, a huge piece of grilled chicken, and 3 beers (lol)
Trust me – this way of eating rocks.
Why does it work? There are a ton of reasons, but I’d rather explaining them to people that know more about diet than I do.
So, if you’re smart, first thing you’ll do is start taking in all your calories at the end of the day.
Second thing you’ll do is check out “Eat, Stop, Eat” – the best resource available on Intermittent Fasting / EOD Refeed style eating.
