    Low carb, cardio and core strengthening exercises. That's really it. It's all about lowering your body fat.

    Depending on your body type, you may not even have to do cardio or exercises to get abs if you can get your body fat low enough.

    I agree with this^^^. It is just a gimmick to reduce calories. If it works, great. If it makes it easier to reduce calories, great. I just don't believe it is some kind of magic ferry pixie dust.

    Has anyone done a study where randomized groups are split into IF and non-IF groups where caloric intake is the same? I would like to see that.

    Which one is likely to have you with lower calories and lower carbs/sugar intake?

    at 6 ft 185lbs if you lose any meaningful amount of weight from here you are going to look like a tooth pick.

    Depending on how trained you are i would suggest eating at maintenance while lifting to get stronger. If you haven't topped out your strength levels this is probably the fastest way to "teh abz"

    You should be eating at a 500 cal per day surplus and hitting the heavy weights pal

    Also, it's been a long time since I frequented the D&S subforum, but I thought threads and questions about purely superficial goal meant you got dumped and directed to Bodybuilding.com ?
