re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
So, what should I do? Move my window?

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
I broke mine this morning because I want to go to the noon class. No way I could do that after not eating since 8 last night.

Not being a dick, but yes you can. I work out in the mornings/noonish on the weekendsnand I never eat before. I wouldn't wait too long after to eat, but youre performance shouldn't really slip at all working out on that amount of time fasted.

No really, you're body can handle it. You may feel hungry, but your body can absolutely perform under those conditions. It doesn't make me one bit of difference if you eat before or not. I was just letting you know it's not necessary for your body to handle the workout.

Either way it's not going to kill you to eat before, but if you want to stay on your IF routine it's doable.

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
So, I read that after you weightlift, even during fasting, you should eat after?

I would try to. I would try to build my workouts around the eating window. If you don't eat before or after a workout, not only will you feel hungry and weak, you'll also lose/minimize your gains.

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
Oh okay. Looks like I need to change my eating window.

Right now I'm fasting from 6 pm to 10 am. I'm working out in the evenings now. What would you suggest?

I appreciate all the help, btw.

It really affects me in a negative way. Not only that, but I am then not hungry for a while after. So, workout at noon. Lunch...who knows when. Supper is then messed up. It's just not worth it when the 'plan" doesn't require it.

I work out in the evenings as well. I try to eat lunch as late as I can (1PM). Then I eat dinner between 7-8, maybe 8:30 at the latest on rare occasions.

As others have said, it gets much easier after 4 or 5 days. You just need to get used to it.

I would just try to arrange my workouts during my feeding window...doesn't matter what time, as long as you get Pre and Post nutrition...

Sounds like you could move your eating window to 12:30-8:30pm. Although you haven't really enjoyed waiting until 10am to eat.

This. Is. Brutal.

I didn't have my protein shake last night. I ate at 10:30. I had four eggs, steel cut oats with fruit, and a protein shake (unsweetened almond milk).

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
I schedule my workout to be right after I break my fast with a shake, so that way I'm looking forward to my workout rather than eating...if that makes sense....just another way to adjust the mindset

IF on hiatus this week. Caught a cold and I'm popping a cough drop in my mouth every hour. There's always next week.

re: Intermittent Fasting experiences?
Laughing at all the people claiming they can’t work out while fasted. I fast frequently on Saturdays. I also get a long MTB ride in usually. I’m pounding out 2-3 hour rides while fasted. I rode a 30 miles challenge with 4000’ of elevation gain. Started the ride on hour 14 of my fast and didn’t eat until 3 hours into the ride.

You CAN do it if you want. You’ve just been conditioned to think you can’t.

No one is talking about your lame arse bike rides dude.

I said WEIGHT TRAINING fasted isn’t ideal.

Fasted Cardio can be beneficial.

Dom DAgostino famously hit 10 reps of a 500 lb deadlift after a 7 day fast, so don’t act like it’s impossible.
