Maintaining a low body-fat - staying lean
So I'm not big on fasting or macro-nutrient cycling but I recently read about this intermittent fast technique and it resembled what I used to do without knowing I was doing it. Just to tell you how my day used to go in terms of meals, I would not eat breakfast and only eat some time in the afternoon, I had no appetite at breakfast time and I would be hungry in the afternoon and start playing catch-up the rest of the day eating a lot, but the funny thing is that I never lost any weight or gained any weight for that matter.
Now I find out about this intermittent fasting thing which can be used to gain muscle slowly while staying lean, this sounds awesome. I will share more about what it entails below.

Eating a lot of protein is said to be important for fat loss and muscle gain and retention. Protein tends to make you feel full after eating therefore also preventing you from over-eating. So basically in terms of diet you should eat more on days when you are going to work out and less when you are in-active...to find out more about intermittent fasting go here.
I will find out more about this kind of plan and implement it, I as I have said above I think it's my kind of thing.
