Fasting, First Meal Suggestions?

#1

I just started intermittent fasting I was curious what is a good first meal to break a fast?I’ve been doing chicken and rice and treating it like it’s my lunch since I eat in the later afternoon and my pre-workout meal. Is this a good first meal or should I being doing whey or something faster? I do chicken and brown rice. I’ve read conflicting things.

In all honesty, it just isn’t gonna matter.

I can relate to your exact thought-process and all (ie. wanting to get FAST proteins in the system asap) but whatever enables consistency/compliance with your approach really is the most correct answer here.

Thanks for responding. I agree. I can’t help it sometimes I still get caught up in the bro science of things and over think this stuff.
