12 weeks of intermittent fasting
For the past 12 weeks i have been changing diet and training after reading Melissa sarah wee , leangains.com , primal blue print, 4 hours body and some other fitness related article. Made quite a bit of progress and here is my breakdown of the 12 weeks.
Week 1 to Week 6 – Intermittent fasting with High Carbohydrate
Week 6 to Week 12 -Intermittent fasting together with Paleo diet.
As you can see in week 1-6 my muscle seems fuller and thicker as compare to the week 12 photo which is much drier and leaner. Which is what i am trying to achieve. Currently weighing 71kg with about 9% body fat.
Comparing to my previous bulking diet where i hit 3000 calories a day
Here is a comparison for my previous bulking diet. Where i actually eat like 3000 calories everyday and have a lot of carbohydrate for every meal, the photo below was taken when i am about 73kg, 14% body fat.
Depending on individual, i prefer to look lean year round and i prefer the body now compared to previously where i hit 75kg. I feel much stronger now and the energy i feel more energetic. I don’t get restless during the day and my energy is more constant.
Fasting makes your body uses more fats instead of carbohydrates as energy!
Recently i just did a CSC 15km run fasted and the feeling was fantastic, no dip in energy no lack of energy during the run as well.
I have been trying to get more information on Fitness Related stuff, to me it is really on how to let our body use fats as energy. I find that my body is really adapting well with Paleo. So now i want to test if it is fasting that leans me or my diet. So i have decided to stop my intermittent fasting so i can up my calories intake.
- I am going to go for a 12 weeks full Paleo or you can call it the Primal Diet
- Primal or Paleo lifestyle to me is basically, no grains, no processed no high sugar food.
- I also want to maintain my carbohydrate level between 100 to 150grams a day.
- Limiting my carbohydrates intake to only postworkout or early in the morning if i am not working out on that day.
- My Goal for this 12 weeks is to hit 75kg at 8% body fat.
Everybody got different aim my goal is to be able to lift heavy, do long distance endurance and look aesthetic(super human)
