Am I allowed to drink protein shakes during Intermittent Fasting?
I usually workout from 4:30a-5:30a every weekday. I drink one scoop of protein prior to working out by half an hour, and then one more within half an hour of working out. This is the only time that I can workout since I have to work afterwards, and won't have enough energy to workout after work.
Anyway, as for my IF 7 hour feeding window, that's gotta be between ~9:00a-5:00pm.
My question is: can protein by drunk whenever? Or is it good to have is just before and just after a workout? Because if not, I can just workout in the morning, and drink my two scoops of protein powder at 9:00am. As for my eating window, that's pretty much non-negotiable since I have to eat at work.
Any advice? Even if it's not to do with IF, I'd appreciate any general comment related to my regime.
