I just wanted to know your opinions about doing IF along with high intensity training AND one meal a day diet approach!
So I'll be fasting alternate days. And When I am not fasting, I will be doing a 20 minutes interval jogging (30 seconds exertion, 1 minute rest and so on) Followed by a big gorgeous meal.
Do you think this approach will work?!
I am not sure the Leangains protocol is meant to be done with Crossfit. It is usually for Strength Training.

Fasting works for me because I have been primal for a year now so I don't have any hunger pangs and I eats ton of fat. My news food is pork back fat. Delicious!
I've been fasting - other than coconut oil and butter in morning coffee - from 9PM - 1PM 2-3 days per week and crossfit at noon 3-4 days. It often plays out that I'm working out wo having eaten for 15 hours and it has never been an issue. I was worried that I'd run out of gas but, surprisingly, never could blame lack of nourishment for my dismal wod performances. While I avoid sugar , including fruit, and most grains, I think I get around 35% of my calories from carbs (beer, wine, dark choc, nuts and veggies) so I don't think I'm anywhere near ketosis.
Not sure of much, but I know that IF and HIIT are compatible for some, including me.
