Good read! This is a perfect example of why the generally accepted knowledge about something isn't necessarily always the truth.
Just because it works, doesn't mean its easier or better for you... No one knows the long term effects e.t.c.
But mainly, it would be pretty difficult to fast for 16 hours and still train! When I get back from the gym, I'm wanting food pretty much within the hour.
He states in the article "if you're sick of carrying around tupperware, try this" e.t.c. - I'd rather carry round a couple of tupperwares than not eat at all for 16 hours!
Which should make you realize that it's possible to make good progress while pretty much doing whatever the hell you want, as long as you're getting in the proper calories.

Son-of-a-bitch. I gotta think of a "new way" to restrict calories that shows everyone that everything they think is "wrong".
Oh, and I have to be able to make money on it.
Been using IF for 2 weeks now. I'm down from 202 to 189 and sticking closely to the rules in the IF website. I train fasted and eat my first meal at noon. The first week was rough but now my body has adapted. I feel more focused during my workout and I'm continuing to add weight to my lifts. I workout 3 times a week and basically train the big 3, bench, squats, and dead lift.
Great article. Now I'm off with the phrase "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day".
