Effects of Intermittent Fasting
Hi PBB Brothers! I just want to throw a question here for IF practitioners.
I have been in the said diet for more than a year now, started January 2014 and I plan to continue it. My question is, have you observed that the diet was really able to do catabolic process during fasted phase and anabolic process during feeding window? or the effects are just all because of the calorie deficit brought by the limited window time?
My observation is not clear yet, but I find that IF was able to help me lose fat and at least maintain strength during my workouts. I am not sure if it is directly related to muscle preservation or slight gain.
