HGH Effect On Gains
I have been experimenting with intermittent fasting for the last month or so in conjunction with a ketogenic diet. Usually fast for ~16 hours a day, with a half hour walk at the end before finally eating lunch, but I have also done three 24 hour fasts, the last of which was with a full weight lifting workout at the end.
At the same time, my PE routine has been pretty constant for the last 3 months.
Now, I have also lost weight, but my wife has lately been commenting on how much bigger I feel. She knows I do PE, and had reported an increase in size months before, before we started the ketogenic diet, exercise, and IF.
This got me thinking about how intermittent fasting, and especially fasted exercise, increases HGH (human growth hormone) levels, and now I’m wondering whether HGH can be responsible for the recent size increase, or rather acceleration of gains.
Anyone with more knowledge on the subject care to weigh in on the possibility HGH can affect gains?
I do understand that exercise and healthier diet by themselves can increase blood circulation and heart health, which could result in bigger, harder erectione, and that losing weight (fat pad) also yields a visual increase in size.
