      So when doing IF( intermittent fasting) doing a basic 8 hour eating window 16hour fasting period. I train around 5.30/6PM should you train fasted? As I work 9/5 so was going to start the close the fast at 1.00PM with my first meal another aroun 4/5 then last meal at 8 but then I'd be traning on a full stomach? How does this work?

      Few options:

      Train before you go work fasted.

      Train fasted at 5.30pm.

      Break your fast and have a pre-workout meal.

      It really doesn't matter, just do what works best for you.

      The fasting window and workout time are not interdependent. Train fasted or not, based on convenience and preference.

      Of course not. The way you want to do it is within the IF guidelines. Irganize your meals in a way that you do not go to the training on full stomach nor starved and make the post workout meal the largest one. Also if you turn 8h window to 9h window due to convenience, its ok.

      If you turn the 8hour window into a 16hour window it works just as well.
