Recently heard this podcast which I thought some of you may find interesting too. It's about a guy who fasts on water only before major sport events and often he wins them.

I've been personally trying a 36h fast and than went on an hour cycle. Surprisingly I wen't much further in both maintaing a higher than I usual paste and wen't couple of km longer.

Please share your thoughts/experience with this.

Best wishes to all,

Idan

hi Idan thanks for this I did not find any attached podcast was there a link?

This is good news re your ability to cycle for longer distances while on intermittent fasting. I think this might be to do with the body's ability to manage ammonia more effectively or perhaps the blood gets more oxygen from a 'cleaner' system? Perhaps the Doctor could shed more light on this.
