Clean Bulking With Intermittent Fasting
If you’re into bodybuilding you may have heard the term “intermittent fasting.”
Intermittent fasting (IF) is a pattern of eating that alternates between periods of fasting (usually meaning consumption of water only)…
Although this strategy is typically used for fat burn and may seem like a strange way to gain muscle mass, by only eating food for a short period of time in a day, it can actually work to your advantage if done correctly. This can be a great diet plan to adopt to get the muscle size that you seek while avoiding unnecessary fat gains while “bulking”.
Bulking on Intermittent Fasting (IF)
On this plan you’ll be eating your calories at set a period of the day and then not eating at all for several hours. You will need to maintain a caloric surplus by getting enough calories into your body during your “feeding window”. Use my simple hardgainer diet plan formula to calculate exactly how many calories YOU will need in order to maintain a caloric surplus. Ideally you’ll want to eat all of your calories in a 6-8 hour window. I would recommend a feeding window of 12pm-6pm or 12pm-8pm. Once you have chosen the hours in which you will be consuming your calories, you can then schedule your meals accordingly.
Following this approach means you will need to consume the 2000-3000+ calories in a selected period of time and then fast for the rest of the day. Avoid eating foods that are low calorie as you won’t meet your calorie goals for the entire day.
