Fasting ~20 hours almost every day. Eating one huge dinner over the span of 1-3 hours.

I've been doing this for about 3 weeks with amazing energy. I'm waiting for the crash/let down.

I've been eating 200-250 grams of carbs with my PWO dinner and I seem to be gaining muscle faster than usual.

Anybody have any experience with this routine? Is it sustainable?

I follow and recommend a similar protocol to my clients as well.

Carbohydrate consumption in my opinion however, depends upon the individual's sensitivity to carbs and the type of exercise one does.

Everyone's got a safe zone variance in regards to carb intake, dependent upon their individual level of activity. See carb consumption safe zones

That's pretty much exactly what I do, except for the past week, where days after I've worked out I break from the IF protocol to give my body a "re-feed" in terms of meal frequency - I work out 2x/week now with the Paleo lifestyle in mind, so 5 days per week I will be IF'ing and eating in one large meal sitting.

I reason that the day post-workout is the only day where I'll probably get any significant muscle growth happening, so that's when it would be more beneficial to flood my muscles with nutrients and get the LH surge (and thus a testosterone surge to increase muscle protein synthesis) from meals.

I typically fast at least 16 hours a day and eat two meals within the other 8 ala LeanGains. It makes the meal planning MUCH easier. If you feel great and love the results, I don't see any reason why it's not sustainable!
