    Re: int fasting

    I had been doing it on Sundays doing my workouts all season, also during meets. Might as well do it during the week

    Int fasting isn't anything new.... Depends what you think not eating breakfast is. My diet varies depending on the time of year and my training schedule.

    Early morning training:
    1: Hot green tea or coffee, whey or bcaa, coconut oil or peanut butter cocktail
    2: 30mins into training 1 apple - nothing for more aerobic base training...
    3: Egg omelet with turkey, cheese, spinach, and blk beans etc

    Evening training:
    1: Egg omelet or green tea with coconut oil (non training days or tempo almost always green tea - coconut oil)
    2: Protein and fats, until about 3hrs before training...

    Well mine varies depending on training also. But all im doing is not eating late into the evening, unless i train late, and eating later in the morning. Breakfast is just that, breaking a fast. now matter what time you eat, your first meal of the day is breakfast.

    When I train early morning, ill stop eating earlier the day before and before I train 8am on sundays. I do a carb/bcaa mix. After training ill get my food in. the less food on my stomach the better I feel.

    Also if you train early morning it's important to have a nice amount of carbs for dinner. Most people would probably do the opposite but carbs at dinner is very important for AM training.

    Dinner:
    Sweet potatoes
    Chick or beef
    spinach salad

    Before bed
    2 scoops whey +peanut butter

    Often on saturdays I go out to eat, so I generally eat early like 1-3pm. It will be a large meal and my last meal of the day.
