QUESTION: Hi Mark. I am working out at night and drinking a protein shake following. I don’t eat until late morning the next day, fasting about 11-12 hours. I’m trying intermittent fasting and doing all my eating in an 8 hour window. Before bed I have 22 grams of whey protein.
My goal is to lose fat and gain muscle. Am I robbing my gains by not eating after my workout?
No that won’t cut it, buddy. And whey is too fast digesting for your last meal of the day.
With a solid food meal (protein, carbs, fat) the protein will digest at the rate of about 3-5g protein/hour. For 12 hrs you’d be looking at getting 60g protein from real food – being digested about 5g protein per hour (12 x 5 = 60). That will take you up to your next feeding. Hope that helps. (Yes casein is an option, but why not just eat real food?)
People also ask if Intermittent Fasting can be used with my Total Six Pack Abs shredding program. Yes it can. You simply consume the calories and macros recommended for you in the book into your feeding window. No problem at all.
