Thanks again for the replies.

Since the thread ran its course, I've been trying to simply avoid post-WO food if the workout is outside my feeding window. I have only been doing strength workouts at those times and don't seem to be having any problems.

Being a (former, perhaps) believer in post-WO nutrition, I think I was probably feeling weak and hungry because I was *expecting* to feel weak and hungry.

Everything seems fine now--cranking right along with my 1-7pm window 5-6 days/week.

Being in that boat I've been trying to get myself out of that habit the last few weeks. It's hard to break years and years of doing the PWO thing though.

Ah, the good old placebo effect. Expect it and get it!

A quick follow-up question:

I've read that it's good to eat post-WO to decrease cortisol levels.

Why should we not be concerned about this if we IF, workout outside the feeding window, and wait many hours before eating? For example, several of my workouts lately have been at 11-12 at night and I didn't eat until 1-2pm the next day.

Actually, why should we IFers not be concerned about cortisol in general (as compared to folks who eat normally)? My limited understanding is that cortisol levels are kept under control partly by regular eating.
