1 g/lb should be just fine. I've found better results with higher protein, but that is probably hard for women to do, with not as many expendable calories.

How long do you guys usually fast for? I know that LeanGains promotes 16/8, but I'm curious to see whether anybody does pure water fasting for longer than that.

I've noticed that 16 hours is amazingly easy for me to do, but while approaching the 20 hour mark, I feel like I should eat something. I usually eat something light, like fruit, when hunger kicks in. Then I slowly work my way up to the "heavier" foods.

15-16 hours suits me the best so that's usually what I aim for. I can def go longer though and sometimes I'm up to 20-21 hours.

Yep, I follow the same 15-16 hours as Johan. Sometimes I go longer, if responsibilities get in the way. Going longer is no problem.

I don't know how you do it. I tried it for about two weeks and while I got my hunger under control, lifting in the afternoon was a disaster whether I fasted through or ate a meal an hour or so before.

Training fasted before lunch works really well for me except if I'm gonna squat and do deadlifts (too much ups and downs I guess) but when I fasted through the whole afternoon and worked out fasted late at day it was basically just motivation that kept me going. The 12 pm - 8 pm feeding window is def the best way for me to go. And I never liked eating a meal close to working out. Now it's always at least 2 hours inbetween and then I take some EAA.

I don't feel tired going into it, but I just don't have the endurance once I start lifting. Basically I feel like I run out of gas much faster. I was/am taking EAA before and BCAA during.

Yeah that's the same as my experience basically. Fasting untill afternoon doesn't work in the long run for me and that's why I shifted to the "normal" 16/8 12-8 scheduele. I do 90% of my workouts after lunch which is perfect for me because I can eat a decent amount of energy for lunch to fuel my workouts. If I do fasted workouts I need coffee right before =)

Thursday I fasted all day except for a vega bar and apple and my stomach felt GREAT. I am probably going to do that every few weeks but dont think I could any more frequently.

Yo, just read through this thread, cool. I just wondered, do sleeping hours count as a fast? So if I eat my last meal at 6pm, and then don't eat until 9am the next day, that is a fast of 15 hours? Is that true, or are we talking about being awake / active during the fast?

There is a good intermittent fasting primer over at leangains.com right now. I would post a direct link, but Martin's blog has a static URL for all pages, or whatever the hell you call that. The primer is called "The Leangains Guide."
