Food post fasted-Cardio

    So, following the advice on the fasted cardio, I’ve added that to my morning bike commute (~half hour bike ride) and making breakfast at work. Seems like an easy way to get this done, but curious what i should be looking at fueling with. Should i be trying to restore glycogen stores?

    That will be a good start, but you’ll want to add in longer events within a couple of weeks. You can eat a breakfast containing a near-equal balance of fat/carb/protein because, un-like what most diet-fad-fuelers proffess, it doesn’t matter that much. The state (fueled or fasted) of the working muscle during training is much, much, much more important than the macro-nutrient balance you’re eating. Exercise is 95% of the equation and diet is 5%.
