If you readers have noticed one of my big philosophy's when dieting is eating conveniently. Be very skeptical of any nutritional advice that tells you to eat a certain number of meals a day. In reality you should base your meal frequency on what best suits your training, convenience, needs. Read my previous blog post on meal frequency read here
One unconventional method of dieting is called intermittent fasting and is an approach that has really grown on me over the years. I like it because it can cut out a lot of the stress out of dieting and might even be a good way to control cravings.
Lean gains has become an increasingly popular method for people wanting to lose fat or gain muscle. The basic premise being that you fast for 16 hours then have a eight hour eating window. So for example you would start eating at 3 and end at 11 pm go to sleep then wait till three the next day until you start eating. Many people enjoy this way of dieting and it can have a number of benefits over standard dieting.
