In this article, Mark discusses why he occasionally will fast after working out.  He explains the benefits of fasting and reaffirms that pre and post workout nutrition are not understood.  We can all get caught up in the game of what to eat and what not to eat and how soon before and after and so on and so on.  If constant variation is what we have found to be the best strategy in our fitness, why wouldn’t we try it for our nutrition?   I think Mark says it best:

In the spirit of IF (intermittent fasting) and recreating patterns of our primal ancestors’ lives, varying your eating/exercising/fasting practices ultimately allows for maximizing the hormonal and upregulating benefits of different physiological scenarios.
