Intermittent fasting guide from Dr. John Berardi (T-Nation) and Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon (aka Stumptuous)?

Has anyone starting Leangains/IFing checked this out? It's 5,000% easier to navigate than Martin Berkhan's site.

I used to read Berardi's stuff many years ago while trying to get hyooooooge, and was quite surprised when I saw this very accessible guide last year. He's come a long way in his views. And Stumptuous is awesome.

You're correct technically, but right now there's a lot of conversation about getting many the same benefits just by drastically reducing protein intake while still ingesting some fat, etc. For me so far, I'm still fasting-fasting but I have to say putting cream in my coffee doesn't seem to jerk me out of fasting mode right away.

IF is part of Leangsin. Berkhan = Leangains. Berardi's guide is for IF only. rippedbody.jp also has very good LG guides.

Definitely easier to read than Berkhan's site, though less entertaining.

Interesting! It's so different from his 5-8 meals plus snacks routine but he was open-minded enough to give it a try.

Well written, nice layout.

Solid info, as far as my own experience can confirm.

The downloadable PDF is easy to get and grasp.

I thought the paper was laid out well and good for "fly on the wall" observation of JB's experiences - but my first "hey, wait!" objection came when he admitted to using 2-3 servings of greens powder during his fast. If you consume calories, it ain't a fast . . .

Based on Martin's writing everything points to the benefits of fasting coming from being completely without calories to process for a set amount of time (14 or 16 or more hours). Thoughts?
