Hey this is my first post but I just wanted to share something I learned recently. Studies have shown that working out in a fasted state increased protein synthesis by up to 50% when you break your fast with a post workout meal. I have only been doing this for 3 weeks and I have already noticed a difference in recovery. Additional tidbit, omega 3s when breaking a fast adds even more fuel to the fire.
I’m sorry I can’t cite the research as I am on the road but felt compelled to share. I encourage everyone to look into this themselves as it is easy to find the studies.
