It's hard not to think I'm losing that important recovery meal. I can't break the fast that early though.
May not be optimizing muscle repair....but if you are doing more metcons and want more fat loss....not a huge issue as long as you get more protein later. If you want muscle can try supplementing BCAAs pre and post workout (doesn't break the fast if there is no sugar in it).
