Default Waiting 3-4 hours after working out to break fast

I try to fast from 8:30-9:00 p.m. to 11:30-12:00 noon the next day. I workout usually around 6:30 - 7:30 a.m. & I find it difficult with my work schedule to eat all necessary calories in a 6 hour window. Am I creating problems by not eating that long post workout?

By the way, I miss breakfast (eggs, sausage, etc...).

I was thinking maybe I should consider just general calorie restriction with between 3-5 meals (it might fit the schedule more appropriately). I do know that studies find the IF implementation to work better, but my quesiton is how much? What is the degree of improvement?

Thank you,
