    Social life plays a part but doesn’t have to ruin your IF. During my work week I am very strict but if my weekend includes plans with friends then I will loosen things up a bit. I used to be an “all or nothing “ type of person but have worked hard to rid myself of that mindset because it sets you up for failure. There is always wiggle room. IF doesn’t mean you abandon your social life and stop enjoying food and drink. Being strict most of the time makes the times you treat yourself even more enjoyable-at least for me.

    Yes. In fact little social life makes a shit ton of things easier.

    But isnt that what life is about?

    Honestly, if i get the best physique out of this fasting, what will it net for me? And what it does net, will THAT kill that physique and the discipline?

    I find that intermittent fasting is very good for keeping the daily calories that you consume per day lower for obvious reasons. But I find that it's very difficult to fit into an athletes lifestyle. Georges is a very high level athlete so he can kind of dictate when his sessions take place and fit them around his diet. So for example, he can go and train from 12oclock-3oclock and then have his eating window from 3oclock-9 o'clock, it fits in pretty easily. However, if Im a 20 year old MMA fighter with 3 fights and I go to college, I can't manage my trainers and sparring partners like Georges can.

    So true. That makes me wonder: are there other fighters who practice IF? Haven't heard of any so far

    Unless I'm heading out for an early morning ride I don't eat until noon, except for my veggie juice (kale, beets, and green apple). Try to eat by 8 to keep it within an 8 or 9hr window - unless I'm traveling fro work.

    Agree that IF isn't magic fairy pixie dust, just a pattern of eating.

    Here's a quirky thing though. I'm pretty active and do some sort of work out 6 days a week. I got a piriformis injury 14 weeks ago and it totally fucked me up. Not only is it a painful and frustrating injury, I started eating more and higher calorie foods. WTF? That must be some evolutionary biology shit at work ... get injured and don't know when you will be healthy enough to forage/hunt next meal.

    In 10wks i think I put on 10 or 11 pounds (the struggle is real 'yo). I'm back to working out now for a couple of weeks and I'm already eating less with fewer portion of carbs.

    I always eat more when I'm not training. I just do not like to be full or close to full when lifting. Heavy eating days will always be my day off.

    This isn't limited to food.

    The Koch brothers actively spend large amounts of money on lobbyists to crush various American cities' attempts to implement or expand public transit.

    Public transit can be awesome for the community and to ease traffic congestion, but it means gas is being saved. Can't fucking have that. So they'll lobby and market to kill initiatives and defund potential or existing public transit programs.

    The robber barons don't want people consuming less. They want you buying more sugar, more gas, more drugs.

    I'm a fan of 16 off and 8 on...basically I don't eat breakfast and instead kind of have a brunch at around noon. Then I'll have a dinner at around 6pm and that's it until my noon "brunch" the next day. I've tried doing 18 off and 6 on but all I could think about was eating so I found myself gorging when I finally hit that 6 hour window of eating and overall it wasn't effective for me.

    I also agree that IF seems to be used with a cleaner diet so people get better results indirectly. I've bascially gone Paleo and partially Keto in that I eat almost zero carbs from grains. For me it has absolutely changed my mood and I have 10x the energy I had prior. I've fallen in love with vegetables and since I BBQ/smoke just about all my meat I've found a great balance where I eat a ton of veg with a reasonable amount of meat.
