Maintaining my fitness routine of lifting weights 4 times/week

Currently fasting all day (not eating anything for 9 days now) and maintaining my fitness routine of lifting weights 4 times/week. Feeling great, but I do get really hungry after my workout of course! 🙂 When fasting all day I don’t have to think about what time I exercise (because I fast all day) as the fasted state benefits my muscle gain. My question is about when I’m going to break my water fast and get back to IF. On IF I usually eat between lunchtime at twelve o´clock and stop at six (6h eating window). But if I exercise early in the morning in a fasted state, does it have any negative effects if I wait to eat until lunchtime? I mean is IF different from fasting all day when exercising? To be more clear: Do I have to move my eating window so that I eat directly after my workout or does it benefit me to keep fasting after a workout for say 2-3h?

Fasting is a sensational way to clean the body and give digestion a physiological rest. There is nothing better for overall health than a fast. Highly recommend looking into Herbert Shelton’s work. You do not have a “lack of nutrition” as your body produces clean energy by burning excessive fat, etc.

You get more than adequate nutrition from the fat you are burning. The Complete Guide to Fasting is recommended reading.

No need to change your IF to accommodate your workouts. Currently you’ve been working out in a fasted state for 9 days so I’m not sure how an IF would be different unless I’m completely misunderstanding.

I would say if you’re hungry after your workout, you should eat.

Personally I think if your body is fine with this, why not just carry on. However get in the electrolytes and salt too.
