Eat Some Exercise Calories on Fasting Days?
Been doing very well on the 5:2 - not perfect every week, but consisent. I've lost 8lbs since end of February.
I have a question for anyone else that does a lot of exercise - I've started doing exercise on my fasting days as I work-out 4/5x a week and struggle to plan it otherwise (i.e., not fasting and gym). Does anyone else do this and if you do, are you eating any extra calories on those days? I do ~1hour of Step or Boxing which is like 600 calorie burn and that's all I've eaten for the day. Then I run 5-7K the morning after before I've eaten anything (I found this to be great - much better than I did before!)
Can't decide if I should be eating my exercise calories or a portion of or just try and stick to 500-600 calories even with the exercise.
Insight or previous experience would helpful!
Thanks all :)
