Default Fast-5 and Post Workout Protein

Robb and any other informed persons:
I've recently read the Ebook the "Fast 5" and was wondering how a post workout protein shake, etc would affect the intended results of a fast of this sort. Sorry if I haven't given enough details for others. The book advocates fasting for a 19 hour period. I know Robb has said some positive things about plans of this nature and was looking for a little guidance.

This all falls under intermittant fasting.

IIRC, this is the PMenu party line on it: I could have some details wrong.

Concern: Maximal Fat loss
Train in fasted state. Remain in fasted state for a few hours after training.

Concern: Muscle retention/fat loss
Train in fasted state. Utilize an intelligent "paleo" post workout meal

Concern: Muscle retention&gain/slower fat loss
Break fast prior to training, ~1 hour, with small protein meal (some carbs ok, some fat ok). Post-workout insulin spike with protein and carbs.

Good summary Steve. I was wondering about spiking insulin in the "Concern: Muscle retention&gain/slower fat loss" category. Is it necessary?

You could try adding L-Glut (like 30g) to the PWO drink without adding sugar.....this is a Poliquin trick...so must think he knows it works....

I recently ran across something saying that glutamine (like creatine) is instable in water. Anyone else read/heard or have any experience with that?

I have used glutamine before I've never tried what Poliquin recommends in terms of dosage. L-glut is also relatively inexpensive, I used to add 10 grams regularly to my shakes.
