    Primal Fuel


    Hey guys, I've been looking for some info on the benefits of working out during IF (18+ hours), but I can't find much. Does anyone have any links or information on it?

    Thanks a lot Tarlach!


    Tarlach, are there any noticeable symptoms of high production of HGH?

    I know from experience that, for my style of training at least, a fast hinders my performance - the paleo-diet as a whole has compromised my performance actually. I may be releasing more HGH and in the long-run that may help me to hold onto/increase muscle mass but my energy level is poor while at the gym and I&#39;m really struggling to maintain what I was doing while I was eating whatever I wanted.

    I began this Primal journey on December 30th, 2009 and in that time I've lost over 125 LBS.

    For how long did you try to lift fasted?


    It was hard for me at first but after 2 months I adapted to it. I&#39;m interested in knowing in more detail how my body does it. I&#39;m -amazed- by it.

    I&#39;m performing my lifts in a fasted state for three months now. It took me about a week to get used to it, but in the long run it really helped me a lot to improve my performance. My energy levels are way less fluctuating that they did when I was eating regular meals, an especially before workouts.

    I don&#39;t know how much it supports muscle growth, but from my own experience I can say it&#39;s at least not counterproductive and it just feels right for me and my body.

    I&#39;ve been IFing 4-5 days a week for 2 plus years and prefer working out fasted because my energy levels are more consistent than if I ate even a few hours before a workout. It could be either high, or low enough I didn&#39;t feel like working out. My body took about 2-3 months to get used to it, but some of that was psychological. Here is a blog discussing this very subject. She cites studies on soccer players during Ramdam, where fasting is done between dawn and dusk.
