    Fasting is a weight-loss strategy, not a weight-gain strategy. Not eating most of the day isn't productive for putting on mass.

      I did a 16-8 intermittent fast while bulking and I gained close to 35lbs of muscle in 8 months, it's definitely possible to do both.

          There was some fat gain sure, nothing too major, mostly muscle, as I said.

            That's amazing progress but I'm sceptical of the 35lbs of muscle claim and I think you did it in spite of your diet rather than because of your diet. If you're like 6'4" maybe the weight makes sense but then how the fuck can you eat 4k cal in a session?

              I'm 6'3. 165lbs in the 1st pic, 200 in the right one. I'm only guessing on how much of that was actually muscle tbh

            I don't think you're that guy, also I've never seen anybody put muscle on that quick in 8 months that lean. It's like magic or top tier genetics

            Good progress but that's not 35 pounds of muscle. That's a solid 15 pounds of muscle and some fat gain. Still though, respect for how good the progress has been for you dude

          True, doing some of the math it was more like 60/40 muscle to fat I'm thinking, that after pic is about a year old and Ive since realized it was time to cut, been cutting the fat pretty decently, keeping the muscle on a cut is way harder than getting it lol

        No you didn't. Definitely not natty.
        MAYBE if you were taking gear, GH, and were a complete fucking newbie who happened to be a hyper responder to both PEDs and hypertrophy training.
        Realistically you probably got fat as fuck and put on a bunch of water weight in addition to 10-15 lbs of muscle

          Fat as fuck is an exaggeration. I still stand by 10-15 lbs of muscle with water and fat taking up the rest

    What if instead of saying “It cannot make up for the missed protein feedings” it said “It carrot make up for the missed protein feedings”?

    If your #1 priority is to build muscle as fast & efficiently as possible, don't fast. Now if you do fast, the 'lost gains' are going to be marginal -- and it's perfectly fine to do so if you just care about maintaining aesthetics & eating that way helps you keep calories in check.

      Babies drink milk ideally 5-8 meals a day for optimum growth during the most growth intensive period of their lives. More meals spread out = more gains, simple as.

      It's the same outcome but your protein synthesis is reduced due to digestive limitations more than anything

      It's like you're constantly synthesizing protein at your max rate but OMAD causes some of your protein to be wasted since your body couldn't digest it before being shat out

      No conclusive evidence has been shown between muscle growth rates of people eating all their protein in a small window and people spacing out their protein over several meals throughout the day

      Eat whenever you want, just make sure to get the number up high enough

    You've already got your answers in this thread so I'll just throw in for fasting: I finish eating about 7-8 pm and won't eat until 11-12 the next day. I usually eat a big lunch, train super hard, and then eat a fairly large dinner. It's genuinely satisfying because all the food you do put down feels like you've earned it. Fat's been melting off and my strength hasn't dipped that much as I'm doing this to cut. You could achieve a caloric surplus with this method tho. I bet it would get you some lean gains if you did

    how could it be, your body digests food over a long ass period, it ight be more e ffcient to break it down to several smaller meals, but at the end of the day, it's still breaking down protein and using it as needed.

    Stop looking for "One Weird Trick!" and just get to work, gullible Gilbert. You could have been lifting instead of reading internet nonsense

    You don't digest the food that quickly and the hormonal balance is more related to your muscle mass than protein intake. RP is peak midwit core.

    Sometimes I feel like we all know too well that what we do is actually very simple, and 80-90% of the gains just come from the never-changing fundamentals. When lifting becomes a primary hobby and occupies more of our life than our time in the gym, the stuff that really doesn't lead to much noticeable difference assumes an outsized importance. For the casual lifter with no aspirations to compete, I don't think any of this really matters as long as we get protein and calories in.
