    Default ESE, working out in the morning and feeling like my blood sugar is low

    hey guys,

    i'm a week into kettlebell burn. i like to workout in the mornings and in the past this has generally worked for me, but now i have a few issues. first, i emailed geoff about continuing ESE while on KBB and he said that would be fine. even so, i'm still trying as best i can to follow his eating suggestions. here is how my week looks

    monday - workout before breakfast - eating a boatload throughout the day
    tuesday - eat dinner
    wednesday - workout before breakfast - eating a boatload through the day
    thursday - eat dinner
    friday - workout before breakfast - eating a boatload through the day

    this worked for me before KBB. i don't know if it's the increased eating and/or the workouts but i'm staying a lot more hungry. when i wake in the mornings i feel pretty week. yesterdays workout was pretty hard to get through. i wondered if it had to do with coming off of a fast day. but this morning i had that same weak feeling first thing in the morning after spending yesterday eating.

    i see myself having a few options and i'm looking for a little advice.

    1 - stop fasting while using KBB (saturday and sunday fasts don't work too well for my schedule)
    2 - change workout days or times (would really rather not - again because of scheduling)
    3 - i get up at 6:30 to read and pray and workout at 7:00. could i maybe have a small snack at 6:30 that would help give some energy by 7:00?

    number 3 is my most liked option but i don't want to eat a lot because i don't want to taste my food while working out. also, i'm kinda limited in what i can eat while doing KBB. main limitations are all my carbs from from various fruits and veggies.

    any help you guys can give will be greatly appreciated.

    Here's my thinking.

    Move your fasts around. The goal is a 24hr fast right? So grab a big breakfast meal after your workout and blast your fast off from there and keep fasting the day trough and up until breakfast the day after.

    Eg.

    sunday - eat
    monday - workout followed by big breakfast meal, then blast off the fast and keep going to...
    tuesday - fast stops at breakfast, go on eating.
    wednesday - workout + eat boats
    thursday - more boats
    friday - workout + recovery breakfast. hit the fast.
    saturday - breakfast to break the fast..

    Bonus is that you can use your pastas and other nice carbs for the big breakfast after your workout
