No need to. The caloric content is minuscule in a ml or 2 of sarms. You will not break your fast. You can take them with your first meal if you choose but it's not actually necessarySince SARMS are meant to be taken in the morning, when practicing IF should I wait till first meal to take them?
My main goal has been fat loss. I started implementing IF and had great results with it. I see you mention you train at 6am and don't eat until noon. I train at 6 and my first meal is typically around 1pm. I'm glad you pointed out BCAAs are OK during the fast, because I was really struggling with the mentality that I wasn't refueling for several hours. Do you think there's any benefit to moving the feeding window around the workout? I haven't becasue fasting while sleeping is just soooo easy!
Are any of you taking any preworkout while fasted?
What type of calorie deficit has everyone whose cutting been using while IF?
Fasting is very beneficial to health long term. It has been shown to increase life expectancy and improve nearly all health markers. It's a great lifestyle to live.Great thread guys. The science is pretty cool. Training while fasted when GH level are high with a limited feeding window helps with insulin sensitivity yeah? I am only about 4 weeks into a 6 hourly feeding window and have adjusted well. Keen to hear what people thing about this long term and even the more extreme one meal a day version if anyone has tried it.
Awesome to hear brother. Thanks for the feedback. My wife doesmt exercise either but she does fast each day and has a shortened feeding window. She also happens to be 47. She is able to maintain a very healthy and lean112 to 115 lb bodyweight just by fasting each day. She doesmt even eat as remotely clean as me either or exercise.I do not do this, but my wife does.
She wanted to loose weight.
Of course it worked better since it was not my idea. Ha ha
She is not a person that enjoys exercising at all. Like would prefer zero. However I am proud of her she is doing. She is 47.
She does not use any foods sarms or anything. She does not know I am experimenting with sarms.I found it interesting that while she was researching fasting she read Rick rocks stuff some where. She also was impressed with his write up.
Good job sir!!
She started by fasting 2 or three days a weeks .
Yep last meal was 9 pm then nothing the next day until breakfast the following day. that’s like 30 something hours!
I would have eating my arm off.
She did that for 9 months or so.
Now for the past year she does 8 last food then eats at noon next day. That like 16 hrs everyday. She exercises in the am while fasted.
This is still netting some lose but is a better maintenance for her. She loves it.. she counts macros extremely well and logs everything. Plans her next day. She also carb cycles during the week.
It has become her life style. She makes it look easy.
Thanks rick for the write up.
Yes you absolutely can. I did it many times with great success. It will generally keep your gains cleaner and leaner than traditional dieting.Might be a dumb question but can you fast during bulk ? I would think so, but eating 2500-3000 kcal in 2 meals would be kinda filling and very slow digesting .. how would this work ?

Not unless its during the feeding window. I typically would work out early am and then fast until noon.Hmm I might have to try this. I gain fat relatively quick and I'm thinking IF might be a good idea. Do you have a protein shake Post Work out ?
