    I have tried them all for long periods, I really like Leangains, it makes a lot of sense to load most of your calories around the post training window and cycle carbs die beat gains/ results!

    ESE was ok but I felt I had to cycle my training to suit as training on the days I was holding off on food was horrible.

    I did not enjoy the WD and I too like Forth gained fat. My issue here is I can EAT! A LOT! So I had real issues getting this right as I was trying to listen to the signals but was just insatiable at night. So I got fatter and also my training felt crap if I trained in the middle of the day with no food before and then none till night time! I didn't feel this was a very performance focused diet!

    The last 18mths I have been using Carb backloading exclusively. This just felt like the right diet and it worked well from the start and suites the volume of my training. I am an amateur power lifter, I predominantly use double Kettlebell movements and I love high volume work.

    It has been a great nutritional program and I have made great gains with it. I had a few hiccups but all were fixed really quickly and the diet is just easy.

    Again, I'm repeating what I've said elsewhere, but if you're totally ravenous at night, you need to eat more during the day. You can actually put away a fair amount of calories during the day and still be following the WD as long as you are avoiding having a _meal_, something that makes you lethargic and relaxed afterwards, and instead having just enough of the right kinds of food to take the edge off your hunger. I've had days when I'm training hard when I have to do this several times throughout the day, so that's what I do when it's what feels right to me.

    Again, IMHO, the big message of the WD is to eat what you need and not what you want. If you need nutrition pre- or post-workout, then have it, just be sure it's what you need and not a big meal until your day is done.
