    I've been reading some of the online information on intermittent fasting.

    I'm on the Anabolic Diet and typically eat every 3-4 hours.

    Do IF and AD go together?

    It's sometimes difficult for me to eat at work so wondered if I couldn't combine the two, e.g. would eating at breakfast (6.00am) and then in the window between 20.00 and 22.00 really achieve the intended benefits of IF. (I'd aim to do this on non-training days)

    Would this enable me to lean out quicker given I'm on the AD? e.g. would I be spending more time where my body is drawing on its fat stores since I'm eating less regularly.

    Thanks
    Nick

    Yup, intermittent fasting is perfect for low carb diets like AD. 16 hours is a good period to aim for with IF, I've done 24 hour fasts before but found 16 hours to be much more manageable. From what i've read (mainly from art devaney) 1 or 2 periods of fasting a week seems to be enough, but i'd keep the amount and days of fasting each week random so your body doesn't adapt to the routine.

    Fasting won't allow you to lean out any quicker per say unless you're monitoring calories, plus as AD style meals are very satisfying so you may struggle to get all your cals in within the eating window.

    Have a read of Leangains - Intermittent Fasting for Strength Training and Fat Loss if you're interested in a fasting set-up aimined at weight training individuals.

    thanks, I'll take a look through the leangains resources.

    For the same daily calorific intake though wouldn't I burn more fat by concentrating the intake in a restricted window (say 4-5 hours). Wouldn't I be in a fat burning state for a longer period of the day and lay down less fat in the window when I'm eating?

    Or is the main factor the total calories in over say a 24 hour period?

    Thanks

    The main factor would be calorie intake, however you will get some nutrient partitioning as you are eating in a condensed window which is also normally around training (with the leangains approach) so you are less likely to store those cals as fat. However, if you're not in a calorific defecit you won't lose weight.
