I have lost around 33 pounds using intermittent fasting (skipping breakfast by substituting BCAAs). Since then, I have started lifting, first with Starting Strength and now with Texas Method, regaining about 11 pounds. I am over 40 and am only training twice a week (Monday and Friday).
On workout days when I lift in the morning, I skip my IF, have protein throughout the day and allow myself extra carbs. On the remaining days, I adhere to IF and go low carb (still trying to keep protein high). This seems to be working well.
My question is what to do on the day after a workout? I know protein is important the day of the workout. Will IF the day after workout adversely affect recovery? Looking for any recommendations from those folks both attempting to increase strength while staying lean on IF.
