This is why I started IF, just sub med school with work and graduate studies. It just fits my schedule better. IF also doesn't mean you automatically run IIFYM, you can apply any macronutrient ratio to IF.
Currently in a deficit/carb cycling and I am losing fat no faster than a typical 16 hour feeding diet, and am also gaining muscle at the same time. My strength has also continually progressed despite getting to the lower %s where I typically see my pressing movements dip or stall a little.
By far the biggest advantage to IF IMO is the satisfaction of having a few large meals on a cut. Nothing like getting to have a 3+lb meal post-workout.
I think you're all being confused by eachother since people are operating with different definitions of IF. IF = intermittent fasting. The IF many people here seem to be referring is the one known as "Leangains" popularized by Martin Berkhan, which is a very strict diet where you can't just stuff your face with whatever you want, Leangains is also the 16/8 people are referring. However, IF can also be warrior diet (20/4) and even having entire fasting days. So far the arguments against Leangains have mostly been bs. That you don't know anyone personally who got big by it probably says more about the people you know, and the fact that it's fairly easy to do if you have a tight schedule every day also makes it an attractive form of dieting.
yeah the doc said if i want to keep playing sports i'd have to get it repaired. I'm relatively young (27) so i figured it'd be the time to do it.
Oh, then it's understandable that you got an operation. I don't really do any sports besides weightlifting or running.
