During intermittent fasting (IF), it is recommended to train/lift while fasting and eat 1-2 hours after training.
My question is WHY?
If I train while fasting I have little energy and most importantly, I feel weak as hell! Which means I can't lift as heavy as I could had I eaten a meal/gobbled a banana/etc, then hit the gym.
Also, I understand that after a hard workout your body is starving for nutrients (hence why i down a protein shake as i'm walking out of the gym).
So wouldn't it make sense to eat as soon as possible after training???
Why is it more important to train while fasting???
