Do fasted NEPA in the morning and then eat for my main workout at night?.
Pick one strategy and just do it for 2 weeks without thinking about anything else....see the results, see how you feel...try tweaking something if you want....make it a personal learning process and you'll never have weight problems again. Keep trying to find the "best" way with too much reading and not taking action...get nowhere and will drive you nuts.
