RE: A good Method to get to single digit bodyfat....aka "getting shredded"
I'm still bulking. My fat gain has been minimal, but that's also because my diet has been pretty clean. But I've added almost 20 pounds in about 3 months. All of my compound lifts are up quite a bit. I eat from 12PM to 8PM every day. Usually 4-5 meals. On workout days, I eat mostly carbs and protein. On off days I eat mostly fat and protein with less carbs. Off days, it's no problem getting all the food down. On workout days, it's hard. My body really doesn't respond well to complex carbs. I get bloated, gassy, lethargic, low energy. On low carb days, I always have tons of energy.
Only complaint with the IF is that often in the middle of the night I get really, really hungry. I usually stop eating at 8-9PM, but don't go to bed until 4AM or so. So those last couple hours, I get hungry and it can be hard to fall asleep.
Other than that, it seems to be going well though. Going to keep bulking for another month. Gains have slowed down a lot. I probably need to up my calories again. But eating 4000+ calories in eight hours is hard enough as it is. Adding another meal on top of that feels daunting. I don't know how much of the fat minimizing is due to the IF or due to my diet. My diet has been very good, but not perfect. But I figure I shouldn't mess with a good thing, so I'm going to keep doing it. It'll be interesting to see how much it helps when I cut next year.
