Meal Time/ Body comp

say I'm eating three meals regardless consisting of 12-16oz meat, 1 large sweet potato (or cup rice) and salad.

1)If i were to train fasted and eat breakfast after would it have a different effect on body comp than if i ate breakfast than trained.

2) If i condense my eating window from say 11 hours to 8 hours will it have an effect.

In both situations assume I'm eating the exact same calories/macros.

My goals are to gain muscle, but not a lot of fat.
Ive been trainign fasted eating in a 9 hour window, but recently started eating breakfast/ expanding my eating window. Im curious as to if this would have a negative effect on body comp or not. Thanks, Troy

Re: Meal Time/ Body comp

i just did a bit of research and didn't find a ton. More like n=1 experiments. But why not just give both protocols a shot and see how it goes?

Re: Meal Time/ Body comp

"In addition to improving your long-term health, your athletic performance and body composition can be greatly improved with proper pre- and post-workout nutrition."
I see a huge difference in performance when I eat something before I workout. (anywhere from 1-2hrs beforehand depending on the vomit factor of the WOD). Check out this article (WFS) on pre-WOD nutrition.

Re: Meal Time/ Body comp

Ive seen that before. Great article. Ive also seen plenty arguing the opposite though. I personally believe that food quality and quantity is whats important though and as long as those are in check then timing is a smaller factor.

As for performance I've done food/ no food pre and i haven't felt a difference either way

Nothing worse than the 'hunger' feeling in your stomach when you are about to start a WOD. For me, that hurts my intensity, even if it is all in my head.
