    Boil it all down to fewest possible words. This is a typical days routine that can be adapted to your own personal situations.

    The body likes routine. Getting used to the same times. Having got to sleep around 10pm, you can wake fully refreshed and rested around sunrise.

    Head straight outside as soon as wake up wearing as little as possible, get down on the ground skin touching the earth start doing 100 burpees. Build up a sweat and lay on your back looking up at the sunrise breathing correctly.

    Next have a cold water shower outside in the sun. Dry off have a good bowel movement about 8am then get dressed and go to work or whatever you do. Loop all your metabolic water all day. Try to be outside as much as possible look at the sun as much as you can through the day. Fast only looping orin all day until 5pm consume your OMAD until 6pm.

    Watch the sunset, and from then on wear blue blocking red glasses until 10 when you go to sleep inside a silver faraday canopy.

    TL : DR

    So it's okay to train fasted state and it's beneficial for healthy, lean individuals than training in fed state?

    This has been my experience also. I have found CT/keto adapted works wonders for staying slim as if hibernating and maximizing autophagy. Keeps hunger levels down so fasting becomes a breeze. However, while it's helped keep me lean, when it comes to lifting heavy (strength training), I'd tend to plateau. Since then I've significantly increasing my caloric intake, and upped protein and the gains have been ridiculous. I still keep carbs low (50g or under on training days). I've gained about 15 lbs in just under 3 months, and have made some incredible strength gains. My moods have improved and I definitely feel like my T levels have surged, although I have not measured. I have to forcefeed myself most of the time, but I am staying lean and putting on mass. These are gains I normally wouldn't have made naturally (I have a history of AAS use in my bodybuilding days) and I've been accused of juicing again.

    The only thing I have to ensure is that I rest long enough between sets to replenish ATP. That's usually 3 mins minimal, and potentially up to 6-8 mins between heavy sets of squats. I'm also modifying my volume as my intensity creeps up. I may experiment with some nicotine pre-workout and see how that works out for me.

    Fasted state is by far the best time to train

    Doing the 100 burpies in less than ten mins before your one meal a day is the best after 20+ hrs fast

    The spending most of my time outdoors I can do - the hardest part for me is staying away from people and large cities. I love going to museums, art, galleries, and cafes, and I love being among people.

    You can do those things on trips, just don't need to live there all the time

    It's such a special time when you go over 20hrs being in a fasted state

    This is the time to do your excercise and even better if its outside in the sun

    Still going strong....... Fasting daily, 16-20 hours and most all workouts done fasted..... Transitioned to a carnivore diet (EPI-CARNIVORE - SEAFOOD BASED AND DAILY CONSUMPTION) and find it just a simple way to eat. Been at it with the carnivore approach for over 3.5 years as a N=1. Makes life easy......
