    I went ahead and went full out on this and only ate one meal per day. I liked the book and I liked the theory but the actuality of it did not impress me.

    Pro's:

    1) I was more awake, responsive and alert during waking, fasting hours.
    2) It was very convenient because I didn't have to pack any food for work.
    3) I enjoyed eating untill I was full in the evening
    3) I enjoyed the control over the hunger pains during the day

    Con's:

    1) School starts Monday and I won't be home in the evening to prepare and eat a huge meal.
    2) This diet encourages overeating, so for someone that has an eating disorder it is too easy to binge. I binged twice last week and that's something that I hadn't done in 3 months prior.
    3) I did feel like that my metabolism slowed down from eating only once a day.
    4) I also found it difficult to take my supplements the way I was suppose to because I am used to taking them before or with my meals.

    Conclusion:

    I'm going back to the anafit method. I will stick with all natural, all organic foods, no artificial sweeteners or anything of that sort. I will stick with easily digested protein during the day and save the chicken or fish for my last meal. I hope this analysis helps someone but to be fair, I really didn't do it long enough to give it a fair shake. It just wasn't working well for me.

    how many calories were you getting a day? It seems like it would be really hard to get enough calories/protein to put on weight.

    I've never had a problem putting weight on. The days that I stayed on it, I got around 2500 per day. The days that I binged I got at least 8-10 thousand calories. On one night, I ate and entire larger double chicken supreme pizza w/jalepenos and pineapple, 2 beers, 1/2 bottle of wine, 2 mrs. bairds apple pies, 2 cadberry eggs, reices peanut butter cup and a package of hoho's. I can't believe that I didn't gain any weight from that.

    It works for some people. The book was very interesting. It's the differences in life that spice things up.

    I dont need any differences in my bodybuilding life, I need time and repetition. The exact opposite of spice. But to each their own. That diet is comical to me.

    Yeah I can't imagine ever trying that diet.

    I'm not really a suitable candidate either.. no way could I eat enough calories/protein for my skinny ass to gain weight in one sitting.

    hey BDR,

    so you've cut out all artificial sweeteners out of your diet? so no diet soda or anything?

    Dude fucking warriors did it man, I mean they fought each other with spears and shit, so they must no what the fuck is up. How many bros you seeing using spears to kill each other? NONE. Why? Because they ain't got the skill or the diet.
