well you originally said fasting in all shapes and forms is bullshit. leangains is obviously fasting with a twist. the 16 hour window of fasting is just as important as the 8 hour feeding period. just clarifying.
the small, frequent meals ideology is just popular, not necessarily better. dieting is also arguably much more important than exercise.
not knocking leangains, but it wasn't the detoxing/fasting bs I was getting at.
It's very controlled and relies heavily on you making sure you do stuff to starve of muscle loss like BCAAs and what not. Regardless, I've tried leangains because it shit on everything I've ever learned in school and from experience.
I don't think it works better than the typical 6 meal ideology but what I do understand is that it does prove a lot of theories wrong, and the 6 meal a day thing isn't the only way to get a good body.
Me personally, I hated doing it. Between the type of workouts I was doing and my job, my body just wasn't holding up to going that long without eating.
I'm a huge proponent of nutrition. It is the make all or break all as far as muscle gain and fat loss and overall well being in general.
My body just reacts better to the normal eating habits.
