I'd definitely look into BCAA's, Derek posted the links to the leangains blog and while not an Oly guy he's definitely a fasting guy.

If you still aren't recovering well enough perhaps you should consider alternating the fast days. On really hard days have a regular day, on light/rest days fast as you already do.

Last year I typically just fasted until lunch, PT isn't too strenuous. Then again I wasn't training before PT either. I did the vast majority of my training in the afternoon.
