    Exercise and Fitness: Keep On Keepin' On

    First time posting in this thread.I was wondering if anyone here has used IF (Intermittent fasting)/time-restricted feeding (TRF) along with working out? What has your experience been like? I came across this study (link) that tested the effects of 16/8 protocol (16 hr. fast/8 hr. eating window) along with working out 3x a week for a total of 8 weeks.Some of the benefits sound really good,specifically the significant decrease in fat mass - −16.4% in IF group vs −2.8 % in ND group (normal diet),blood glucose and insulin levels decreased significantly too, and muscle mass was maintained. Any medical science experts here care to weigh in too?
