Fasted Training Update

Remember this post? It’s been over 1 solid week and results are STAGGERING.

How So?

Fasted Training literally amplifies EVERYTHING. No matter what I eat after fasted training, more about my body somehow manages to sponge it all in. Nevertheless, information pills I’m still eating all-natural and minimally processed foods. Junk food’s out of the question of course, more about so no more McDonald’s, Hardee’s and KFC. But I’ll eat a burger (B+F, Shake Shack, Fatburger, Elevation), pizza (SoloPN, B+F) and dessert (Baking Tray’s cookies, frozen yogurt, low fat ice cream).

Training?

Too good. Machine-like focus would accurately explain my performance. Poundages are increasing on a weekly basis. Endurance is not a problem until I go over 45 minutes of solid weight-lifting. I perform 60 minutes of treadmill cardio 3-4 hours after my huge post-workout meal without breaking a sweat. Not literally- I do sweat a lot, but whatever I ate 3-4 hours prior fuels me and then some.

Healthy Break

Last Friday, I decided to take it easy with my pig outs. Don’t get me wrong- I looked great and felt awesome. I only semi-indulged for the sake of experimentation. Friday was my day off from training, so after 16 hours of fasting with only water, white tea and coffee, I broke my fast with a salad, 400 grams of Medium Rare Filet Mignon, 250 grams of baked Sweet Potato and a small frozen yogurt from Pinkberry with Raspberries and Blackberries.

The next day, I lost 4kg.

What Gives?

Water retention. I tend to retain water A LOT whenever I pig out. Fortunately, I retain water in the muscle and not out. The former gives the illusion of more muscle size. The latter wipes out muscle definition, making you look fat when you’re actually just bloated.

That’s it for now. I know some of you are abiding by this lifestyle before I discovered it, so feel free to compare and contrast.

Will be posting another update as soon as I can. Peace.

    Another 3.5 liters of water throughout the day.

    I did a rough calorie calculation of my current diet and it seems like I am consuming around 1600 calories a day (54% Protein, 9% Fat, 37% Carbs). Is that too low for me? I workout 6 days a week. I currently weigh around 84 kg (was 87 before Ramadan).

    Hi!

    I am a working women aged 34 with an extremely hectic lifestyle. I am suffering from chronic fatigue and experience tremendous pain in my shoulders. Recently I got my “Bone density test” and “Thyroid function test” done”. My bones & thyroid are in good condition. I weigh
    59 kgs. I do my breathing exercise daily without fail. I drink 8 ounce-8 glasses of water every day and in between also do the water therapy where I drink 1.5 liters of water in the morning. I have a healthy diet (lots of fresh fruits & veggies).I sleep well for around 7 hrs per day. Yet I end up feeling exhausted 24-7. I also tried health supplements but it did not make any difference. Kindly provide me some basic food requirements that help overcome CHRONIC FATIGUE.
    I had mailed you earlier and am looking forward towards your response this time.

    Can this apply to females just as well? I’m going to be at university for back-to-back classes from 10-6 everyday so I’m thinking that I might as well fast and work out when I get home. Thoughts?
