In all my years as a personal trainer, I have uncovered a few common truths.
One of those truths is that men & women don’t diet the same way.
To test this observation, I conducted an experiment with a few of my male clients on what may just be the Ultimate Guys Diet.
Combining my version of the Paleo Diet with Martin Berkhan’s Lean Gains version of Intermittent Fasting, I watched four of my male clients/guinea pigs drop a bunch of body-fat without hearing any of the typical “I hate dieting” bitching and whining.
Here’s what they did.
Note – some of my guinea pigs worked out in the afternoon while others in the evening. This would impact when their second meal of the day was consumed. If they worked out in the afternoon, we increased the size of their lunch. If they worked out in the evening, we increased the size of their dinner.
And as I mentioned previously, the end result was fairly significant fat loss without any noticeable bitching, moaning or muscle loss.
Another Intermittent Fasting method that you may want to take a look at is the one by Brad Pilon – Eat Stop Eat.
While I am not a big fan of his style of web marketing, his book is the best available for explaining the whys & how-tos of Intermittent Fasting.
