  1. Hi Andy!

    I am 35 years old. I weigh 87kg, 21% body fat, i train 4-5 times a week. My goal is to drop that bodyfat by 20% or more without loosing to much muscle, maybe even gaining if thats possible. I have a fear of loosing the muscle ive built by eating less or IF.

    1. Hi Ray, yes, absolutely.

      If you train hard, set your rate of weight loss as guided, consume an adequate amount of protein, and sleep well, you shouldn’t experience any muscle loss.

  2. Hi Andy, I’m cutting and IF and I’m feeling full on training days. Is that a sign that I’m eating too much?

    1. That’s quite a common experience initially when switching to a meal timing strategy with fewer meals and tighter spacing, like with IF. This is because there’s more food per meal and so the stomach isn’t used to it. Hunger will catch up with you eventually though, so enjoy this while it lasts.
