also debunked in a PDF posted earlier in this thread called 'eat stop eat'.
this article is pretty spot on.
the only thing i disagree on, is that i cannot push out the watts required for a 2-3 hour workout my coach prescribes in cycling while fasting. i've failed twice to get through all of the training intervals at my FTP (functional threshold of power) if i don't eat something before or during the workout when i'm coming in on 12-20 hours of non-eating.
i agree if you're doing 15-20 minutes of strength training that fasting won't have an impact..but it has a major impact when you are on a trainer that is tuned to match your max power and you're doing 3-5 minute max-FTP+ intervals..no way you can finish without eating something or having to drop your wattage threshold on the trainer late in the session..and then you just look like a little girl plus you've wasted the training by not finishing strong.
