After reading your article I'm thinking of giving it another go but this time I'll be armed with the knowledge of my first go around (about a year).

My wife really isn't crazy about this so what is your opinion on IF M-F traditional eating Sat - Sun?
I eat earlier on the weekends but I run to the gym in the morning and train fasted first.

Im exactly 21 days (3 weeks) into IF, specifically lean gains (16Fast/8 Feed). The results are insane. Down about 6lbs, strength is climbing at a ridiculous pace. Looking a lot leaner and somehow I can continuously add weight to all my lifts each workout.

Strength day 1 vs 21

Guillotine Press 155lbs -> 180lbs 2 x 5
Squats 145lbs -> 200lbs 2 x 5
Deads 280lbs 2 x 5 -> 315lbs 2 x 5
Pin Press 185lbs -> 210lbs 2 x 5

Did anybody notice such drastic strength increases?

Are supplements okay, or will they break the fast?
e.g.
fish oil, multivits, glutamine.
