Intermittent Fasting The Day After Exercise
If I intermittent fast a couple days per week, and put protein (collagelatin or raw eggs) in my coffee the other 3-4 days, the day following my exercise, is it better to intermittent fast or get the extra protein?
My understanding is that intermittent fasting is good to do a few days a week, or even most days, but not every single day.
I have also heard Dave say a lot that the best time to work out is right after an intermittent fast.
Dave also talks about putting collagelatin protein or raw eggs in the coffee some mornings. I like to do this most mornings as it makes me feel amazing and I usually work a job that has a lot of labour and find I don't have enough energy if I go to work on coffee with no protein.
That said, I try to get the benefits of IF at least a couple days a week by skipping the protein.
Please correct me if I am wrong about anything I just said. It is also my understanding that you maximize the workout benefits even more if you exercise following an intermittent fast combined with a protein fast (I'm pretty sure I've heard dave say you can combine your protein fast with IF).
So my thinking is to IF before and leading up to a workout and to eat protein in the morning or two after my workouts. Does this make sense? I would love some input. I have done a bunch of searching online and in the forums but have been unable to find a clear answer to this question. Thanks
