Default Post exercise meal + IF + daily training

Question: What is downside, if any, of not eating after morning exercise ?

Background: I enjoy training each day that I get myself to: Make the time, assert the discipline and feel the energy to do so.


Lots of KB swings, varying weights/sets/reps
Interval stuff on C2 or airdyne
Body weight stuff like assisted pullups, pushups, dips, burpees

About 20-40 minutes, varying intensity about the "moderate discomfort" level, or all out, but only for short bursts.

I train as early as I can, then do a Fast-5 IF and don't eat until before 2 or 3 p.m.

Goals are overall health & wellness, general fitness, fat loss while (ideally) realizing some strength gains, but at the least, not losing strength, while improving conditioning and "overall zest for life" :- )

FWIW, 48 y.o. male, desk job.

Your comments are greatly appreciated !

I'd do the interval/metcon stuff 3x a week with IF.....don't get total adrenal blowout...that and it allows you go to harder with each session, promoting more hormonal responses and fat loss potential. If you wanted more muscle gain or did more muscle breakdown, then I would suggest eating pwo.
