I've test driven more diets over the years than I can remember. Being a fat kid at heart I'm always wary of the return of the rolls [...]
For the past 3 months or so I've been using Kiefer's Carb Backloading, this is my second run at it as I had originally tried it last year for a couple months but had to stop (more on this below). Here's a basic run down from EFS, the book though spells everything out in detail and is well worth checking out. All things considered it's very similar to intermittent fasting but in my opinion a lot more focused on body composition and performance. I probably won't be competing for another 6 months or so thus a few months ago I decided I would stop being a fat ass and get more jacked.

Do you want to grow as fast as genetically possible? Do you want to get the best out of your training and have more good and great days compared to bad days? Do you want to recover faster, be stronger, and feel fresher? Proper workout nutrition can greatly improve your performance and your results.
So I discussed earlier that i have some lifting goals i want to obtain by the end of the year, but before i can head full bore into those i need to hit a body composition goal. I've had some pretty severe weight gains and cuts in my life and I think it's taught me a few important things about the topic. I grew up a fat kid, slimmed down to a skinny kid, transformed into a buff man, became an obese slob, and have returned as a large beast. These stages in my life have passed on the knowledge on what not to do mostly, but i believe it's preferably coined as acquired wisdom. None of the following is rocket science and none of it hasn't been said before but I'll share what i feel is absolutely critical to successful weight loss without destroying your weightlifting progress.
