I don't have anything that I have to make weight for now, so I'm free to get as big as I want. I'm going to try a cutting phase soon (gaining muscle but getting fat). Do you think this would be good for a cutting phase?

Its great for people with shitty insulin sensitivity (people who want to build lean muscle/recomp who have a tendency to pack on fat easier)
Doesnt work well for me being a semi-extreme ecto and its very hard to get your calories in if you are training hard imo.
It just comes down to what feels good for you though

I wake up at about 11 - 12. Around 1 Go for a run or lift depending on the day. Get back around 2-3 fast for another hour. Break my fast at 4. I'll eat about 100 carbs and 50 proteins. and then head off to studio to get my training sessions in. come back and finish all my calories and macros by 12 at night.
Basically you fast 4hrs before bed, 8hrs while sleeping, 4hrs after you wake up. You can set it up however you want as long as you fast for 16 hours and eat for 8. You are still getting all of your calories in.
