you're going to lose weight man. Start eating the portion sizes da bears and I eat. Eat until you physically feel like a fat kid.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Are you doing "lean gains?"

If so, how is it working for you?

I know that was for sweetbro but I'm on it as well, however I am "bulking".

I've been following a loose leangains protocol for the past 6 months (and far from religiously as far as macros are concerned).

I've managed to keep roughly an 8 hour feeding window everyday. I no longer feel hungry in the mornings after a coffee.

I have 3000 (~+500 maint.) calories / high carbs & protein workout days where I minimize fat intake.

I have 2500 (= maint.) calories / high fat & protein rest days where I minimize carb intake and recover from training.

3 workout days, 4 rest days a week.

I've gained 9 lbs, and I've tracked my progress properly. It's been roughly 6 lbs of muscle and 3lbs of fat, for a 2:1 ratio. If I didn't binge drink once/twice a week like I have been & eat crappy hungover, I believe that fat number would be even lower.

The strength progression has been slower than I've realized in the past, but for the first time in my short training career I am setup to cut down to below 12% bf, whereas the previous two years I've spent months cutting the fat gain from my bulk just to get back to the bf% I was at before I started.

Huge fan of leangains... it makes a ton of sense to me. Going to continue the "experiment" when I cut, very excited to see the results.

Minimizing carb intake while recovering from training. Seems counterproductive to me

I'm talking 100g or less on rest days (not avoiding them entirely), thats plenty to restore muscle glycogen (especially after consuming 400g+ on a workout day, majority of it being PWO).

It keeps my insulin sensitivity high for when I need it the most, the anabolic PWO window

Yeah, I consume 60-75% of my calories post workout, with my lunch making up the rest ~4 hours before I workout

If you are interested, this is a great writeup that really convinced me

I know all about it. I just eat a lot. Frequently. That's all. No real rhyme or reason until contest season.

I think the gains are too slow for most people to be honest, but I am looking to gain strength while staying at a relatively low bodyfat / total lbs weight. Been pretty happy with my results so far, and the most important part is that its been relatively fun & exciting whereas it used to be a chore.

I'm also able to pack 3000-3500 clean calories into the 8 hour window... if I needed to eat more or was struggling to eat the meals then I would ditch the "fasting" part and just stick to the macro cycling etc.
