I credit this for keeping me in shape/cut for the past 3 years. i usually do it 2-3 days in a row now instead of the 5:2 split. anyone else do this? the first 24 hours were tough at first, but you always wake up less hungry. now it's a breeze and i get weirdly high from it.

also love that i don't have to give up pizza etc.

I'm slowly getting into the fasting thing with keto. I basically omitted all sugar, alcohol and grain-based food from my diet. After 4 weeks, the weight is just melting off, appetite is under control, most of the headaches have passed and I feel great. The first 2 weeks suck bad but after that it got much easier.

I ate a single meal per day, no calories at all during the rest of the day, for at least 8 months now, sometimes not eating for two days. First I thought it's kinda cool that I can eat more crap and not get fat but then I really started caring about what I eat, if I'm to eat a single meal. You are what you eat, and you think about what information you consume. The less processed food the better, the less sugar (preferably no added sugar at all) the better.

It really does improve my day a lot, more free time, meal taste's better, diabetes risk is lower, I can concentrate better, it's cheaper, healthier, and gives me more energy. I don't wanna bother shoving this method of eating down anyone's throat, so if anyone likes what I'm saying, experiment it on yourself for at least 2 to 3 weeks and see how you feel.

Pretty gay but it works like clockwork, especially if you eat well and don't slack in your lifting. Most people I work with think it's pretty crazy to go 1-2 days straight eating nothing and drinking only water

Ball don't lie though

i started around august of last year. i only eat around 5-6pm every day but open it up a bit on saturday and sunday. the 5-6 small meals a day never ****ing worked my entire life, even when i went to the gym 6-7 days a week. i started fasting with very low carbs to keto and i've lost 35lbs without doing anything but hill sprints and jogging everyday. no actual muscle training. i buy one of those gallon jugs of ice mountain water and keep it with me all day like a douchebag. it's really the only thing that can keep the hunger pains from gettin ridiculous.

fad diet or not it has worked better than anything i've ever tried and it seems the most sustainable

I did this after I got fat. I was skinny all my life then 2015-2016 I started creeping up past 225. By the end of 2016 I was 250 and when I went for my physical in march I hit 272. I didn't even realize I was fat. So after my physical I said **** this and went on a hard cut.

I did no cardio. I lifted weights like a mother ****er, ate a lot of protein, and all day I didn't eat. I went to work, I had water and coffee. I ate for the first time at 7pm, not a big meal (your stomach shrinks or something) and after a week you don't even get hungry anymore, you just get used to being starving and your body releases endorphins or something.

It works pretty well, you are basically in ketosis part of the day. you can see on this graph, I was doing 2.5lb a week (so I lost some lean mass but I was determined to lose then build it back up). So now I'm sitting around 175 and 15% BF so now I'm just trying to build lean mass back .. I lost a lot of muscle.

I don't show the fattest pics of myself, this is 3 months after I started if you can believe it. I don't think I've really shown anyone but family this. This is a 6 month transformation, this is how you go ham on weight loss.
First pic is me about 240 (so I'm actually down 30 lbs and still very fat) then second pic is me on my 38th birthday at 178. I'm 6' for reference.




you can see my weight spikes up in a few cases. I have found that if I don't control my carbs and sodium I'll go to bed at 178 and wake up at 185. It can take up to a week to readjust. I don't really know why that happens, but it seems to be a rebound thing after I push too hard/get dehydrated. Also you can see towards the end I rebounded a little bit. After I hit my goal weight, I got sloppy and celebrated a bit, but the real problem (I think) was that the same month I injured both elbows doing weighted pull ups in the gym. "Golfer's Elbow" in the medial epicondylitis. I still am not healed, probably going to need surgery soon. I I ate some big meals (cause honestly, I was starving this whole time) and before I knew it I was over 190 about 15 lbs heavier than I had been at the start of the month.
Mostly water but its still like I was just 179 how the **** am I at 190+ today? Have had to scale back the gym since then and I just maintain my weight kind of bounce in a 5 lb range depending on diet and hydration. I'd like to cut a little more BF but no bigger.

bro you gotta maintain stretch to retain some muscle. don't kill yourself in the gym but at the end of the diet you want to be at around 90%+ in your lifts. I did low rep heavy weight 3-5x a week. ditch the cardio completely, just eat less. i was losing a ton of lean mass until I changed this up.
