Okay so, I would like to give this a shot. Sounds kind of interesting. So I usually eat between 6-7pm and then, for a 14hr fast would have to eat around 9-10am the next day. So my question is… I usually work out around 5am, which would be during my fasting time. Should I continue to fast until 9ish, or should I have my post workout meal?

Hi Kristyn,
Thanks for the read!
Working out in the morning throws a loop into the whole process, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t make it work! The only time I ever do cardio is in the morning after a cup of coffee, because as I’ve mentioned, this is when my body is in fat-burning mode. I’d suggest waking up at 5am, having a coffee, and getting right into your workout! A 12-hour fast should be fine, so don’t stress about getting to 14. Above all else, I believe that the post-workout meal is the most important meal of the day, so within an hour of your workout you should make an effort to refuel with simple carbs, lean protein, and fats. The intensity and type of your workout will determine what and how much you eat, but try it out, see how your body reacts, and make adjustments according to your results.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have more specific questions!
Good luck!
