A week ago I saw a video on the benefits of long fasting, 24-72 hours.
All I heard tho was talk about how it benefits you when you do not do any exercise.
Does anyone here know what happens if you fast as a cyclist.
I know that doing this while training probably isn’t the best idea.
Just like doing it during a rest week.
But what I had in mind was doing a 24-48 hour fast at the end of a rest week when you are fully recovered. 48 hours should be about 5000 Kcal of 700-800 grams of fat that you burn.
Or I’ll try to do a 24-36 hour once a week and see what it does to my workouts.
Sadly I can’t find what it does for endurance athletes.
The goal for me with this is losing weight since I still got about 10 kg of fat that I want to get rid of before my hilly cycling vacation.
