I'm thinking of incorporating fasting for the first time into my diet. I do Starting Strength three days a week (Sun, Tue, and Thu). With that programming in place, it seems like my best option for fasting will be on the morning of training days. That would put the most time in between my workout and my fast. So, I would fast Sun, Tue, and Thu mornings, have a pre-workout light amount of whey protein, and then truly break my fast after my lunchtime workout. It's sort of like a leangains approach, but only three days a week. Does that sound like the best plan? I was thinking the days after my workouts might not be great for fasting because I'd want to eat for optimal recovery. Thanks for the advice.
