Intermittent fasting is not something we recommend doing, unless it's simply a preference and you enjoy following that eating pattern. Intermittent fasting does not achieve weight loss results magically. Certain individuals may lose weight during intermittent fasting because their window of eating is decreased. However, consuming 2,000 calories within 8 hours will be the same as consuming 2,000 calories within 12 hours. Furthermore, restricting caloric intake for many hours a day can often lead to extreme hunger and a potential binge.
Intermittent fasting can also be very restrictive if your nutrition is not planned out properly during the day to accomodate work and exercise. It's not good for your health to be faced with the dilemma of changing your workout time, changing your eating time, or skipping your post workout nutrition (something we strongly recommend against).
If intermittent fasting is something that works for you, we at least recommend lengthening your eating window to make room for post-workout nutrition. If you practice intermittent fasting and need a post-workout protein shake, we'll make sure to give you a protein powder blend that supports it.
