A lot of people are tracking their macros, tracking their calories they’ve come across Macro Lean, they’ve heard about me waffling on about intermittent fasting.

like “I need to do intermittent fasting but what’s the best approach?” is it 16/8? is it 18/6? couldn’t remember that there, is it 20/4? there’s many different approaches… the bottom line is there is NO best approach because what matters before fasting is hitting the right amount of calories and macros before the day is out. Now fasting makes that so much easier that’s why I fast, that’s why I advise all my clients to fast. Because when you need to lose body fat and lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit with a good ratio of macros simple as that. No getting around it! Now if you reduce your calories straight away right off the bat and you’re eating breakfast, you’re going to notice that reduction in calories. It’s gonna be grittier, it’s gonna be harder. But if you start intermittent fasting, pushing that first meal back to midday or even later or whatever. I fast normally for 18 20 hours a day.
You’re gonna enjoy your calories and macros more in the evening, afternoon or whatever. What does that mean? That means you finish the day more satisfied, it makes the calorie deficit easier. So as a rule of thumb I’ll advise doing at least a 16/ 8. 16 hours fasting, eight hours eating window. But that being said if you have to break your fast a bit earlier to make sure you hit your calories and macros you can do that too.
There’s no magic number! Don’t get into your head 16 hours is the golden number or 18 hours or 20 hours or whatever. All that matters is hitting your calories and macros before the day is out. In line with your calorie deficit and a good amount of protein, fats and carbs. And using intermittent fasting as a tool, as an application to make that calorie deficit easier. Yes there are good tag on health benefits when doing any type of intermittent fasting. Increased human growth, autophagey, , using body for fuel in the fasting window. But really most of you want to lose body fat, lose weight and how do we lose weight? calorie deficit and track your macros and have tools like intermittent fasting to make it easier.
So the best approach, the best protocol for fasting and for weight loss is the one that makes your calorie deficit easier. If 16 hours is good for you and 8 hours eating is good for you then do that. If 20 hours of fasting is good for you and 4 hours of eating is good for you? do that! All that matters is by the end of the day, have you hit your calories and macros and if you have with consistency you are going to get results.
