Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
Let me just throw a quick disclaimer that this is really directed at people who are following, or at least familiar with, the actual LeanGains protocol not LeanGains "style" IFing which I did for a long time. I mean actually carb/calorie cycling... (more)
Just wondering how much you guys typically eat (more specifically those who weight train). I am a 16 year old female, 5ft 5.5in. My weight has been fluctuating lately (I try to not weight myself though) and I think I'm around 115lbs. It is... (more)
I'll try to make this a quick question I am 5'6 194lbs+/- male. According to many calorie calculators I should be eating 2200-2500 Cal per day to maintain my weight. I am currently eating between 1500-1800 Cal per day which is well below. I... (more)
Hello, I recently had my blood tested for Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, Glucose and CRP. The thing that stood out and shocked me about the results were my very high levels of CRP of 20.3 This is in spite of the fact that I have been... (more)
Hello everyone So I recently tried to lean bulk, and totally failed for a variety of reasons. However, In the 5 weeks that I was doing this, I've gained some muscle, but have gotten a bit of the flab back on my belly, and before bulking I was... (more)
Im curious if anyone thinks supplementing Amino Acids is ok/beneficial. I was looking at the standard BCAAS ( http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/musclepharm/bcaa-3-1-2.html )but I also came across a few other that are made from grass fed beef... (more)

Just wanna carb reload spent fuel only. Weights don't actually use that much as far as I can tell. I'm 6'1 152lbs 10% BF presently. I'm figuring 1.5g carbs per lbs lean body mass.
I've been eating paleo for about 3 weeks, keeping it pretty low carb and feeling fantastic including dropping about 5 kg in that time (11 lb), and keeping up with my regular routine of weights 2-3x per week, a run a couple of times per week and... (more)
BCAA raise insulin to a high degree. So if you take them pre training during a fasted workout session, would you not shut of the very process increased fat burning you are trying to achieve by fasted training by raising insulin? If insulin is... (more)
Just a straightforward question. My goal is hormonal signaling and fat loss, in an otherwise meat and fat only Leangains diet. I eat two meals, one at 12pm post workout, another at 7pm. Both are equal portions of carb. No carb rest days. ... (more)
Have you ever thought of not measuring your post-workout carbs? Just eat the amount of carbs that helps you feel good. It will take some trial and error, but I've had good results reducing bodyfat doing this. No need to measure anything.
I have been doing weight training for six months now, and have significantly improved on my push ups, sit ups, squats, etc. but I still can't get one dang pull up! I have worked on pull-downs, assisted pull-ups, negatives, mixed grip, you name... (more)
Everyone talks numbers in Leangains about how many g/lbs of protein, but how about carb? I'm doing Leangains and am cutting fat. I've been eating meat/fat no carb rest days, lean meat/satsumaimo low fat training days, WO fasted 11am, eat 12pm... (more)
I'm debating on the advantages/disadvantages to Leangains/CBL as far as training times, and carb loading times. Martin's ideal is fasted training at the end of a 16hr fast for max fat burning, at 11am, with mealtime at 12pm and again at 7-8pm,... (more)
IF the goal is fat loss... meal timing is completely irrelevant and makes no difference between eating 1 meal a day or 10 meals a day or fasting 6 hours a day or fasting 20 hours a day... Makes NO difference in body composition.
Doing leangains. My goal is to reach 5-6% bodyfat, reset my fat set-point, keep it there, then add calories slowly leangains recomp style to build muscle. I IF, eat 2 times between 12pm-8pm, train fasted 11am. 2000cal high carb really low fat... (more)
Hey Hackers! I've been hearing about Kiefer and his carb-backloading. It makes sense and I'm interested in trying it out. However, I can't train in the afternoon/night due to work so I train in the mornings. I heard that there is a morning... (more)
I've been doing leangains for 3 months. I'm now more ripped than I even thought possible. To say it works is an understatement! My eating window is 12pm-8pm, two meals. No carbs rest days, very low fat training days. I get up at 5am and... (more)
I'm going to say that the 16 hour fast isn't so important for some of us. I did 16 weeks of LGs until the hunger and mood issues were too much to deal with, plus my fat loss had greatly slowed. Keeping the same daily calorie/macro numbers, I added... (more)
Does anyone have any good input on getting a pair of good lifting shoes? It seems like its literally IMPOSSIBLE to find a pair on the interent. They dont even sell the adistar anymore they only have the new model which is bright orange and is out... (more)
Bio: 22 year old male, 22% bf, 97kg. Fairly fit and training in preparation to compete in crossfit in 2013. Question: For those of you who are quite active, what worked for leaning out and what didn't? Lately I have been having a day of solid... (more)
Quick question; Just come off a 6 month phase working up my running/cardio ability for a work based role. Little to say it didn't work out. Currently have a 9:30min 2.4k and are looking to hold onto it with as little running as possible. Trying... (more)
All, I am going to go for my first full marathon ever this weekend. Being a paleo for the last 2 years, I have been thinking of doing an experiment on myself during my run: I want to go marathon in a fasted state, hoping that I can tap into fat... (more)
I'm fat adapted keto; meat, fat, and greens. No carbs; I'm sensitive and they make me feel hungry and irritable. I have ZERO PROBLEMS motivating myself to push hard in the gym, ZERO PROBLEMS staying pumped to the last set, ZERO PROBLEMS with... (more)
How long after finishing the last meal does it take to qualify as fasted training? How long to begin autophagy? Once a week I eat at 7am, go to the rock climbing gym and train from 3pm-7pm, then eat at 8pm. Qualify?
