ABCDE Thread The links in the thread explain it. Important to read the article at the link (especially since in the middle of the four part series he explains adjustments for women.) Basically you eat extra low calories for two weeks, then high calories for two weeks. This is supposed to prime your hormones for muscle building. I'm trying to time it in with the monthly female hormone cycle. I read that you're more likely to put on fat the more estrogen that is in your system, so I'm timing the low calorie times during the times of highest estrogen. In the graph below, I'm low calorie from Day 7-21 which I think is roughly the first two weeks of pills for those on the pill. I'm eating 1300 calories during low calorie times and 2300 during higher calorie times. Right now I'm in the low calorie time. Hard, but I got used to it fast. Especially knowing that I only have to do it for two weeks. I'm not trying to get huge, but I like the idea of getting the muscles I want faster. Actually my main motivation is that I'd get to eat higher calories every 2 out of 4 weeks. And I just plain think it's interesting. Anyone else trying this?
